I looked around & did all the research on 14 way stand bags recently & bought the Cleveland CG Hybrid bag.    So far, really like it.    Very well made bag & there are great deals to be had on them on eBay...

You sir are on the right track. The Sun Mountain Four 5 is a great bag. I love mine. If you like Tilteist, the Titleist 14 way bag is also a good one (it too is made by Sun Mountain).

A lot of people seem to like the Ogio bags, although I've never cared for how the slots were laid out; but check them out as well as their quality is good and you may like the layout.

I have the Four 5 and if something happened to it I would buy another without even looking at the other options.  I like it that much.  I'd say if you walk a lot, get the four 5, if not, then the sun mountain hybrid.

I could not agree more with the above statement.

Does fine.  I use a SS slim grip.

the four 5 is good, but also a cheaper option is a 2011 sun mountain hybrid.  it's pretty much the exact same bag but nearly 50% cheaper.  try ebay.

I think the hybrid is a lot bigger, isn't it?  I remember seeing in the store, thinking it was a Four 5, and being disappointed.  Then I found the Four 5

the newer 2013 hybrid is bigger, and it doesn't have the dual strap either.  the 2011-2012 hybrid is under 1lb. heavier, but for the most part is the same bag as the newest four 5. you just have to go somewhere like ebay to find the closeout hybrids, as all the ones in the store will be 2013.

Super nice, tons of room, not clunky with an overabundance of pockets everywhere.

I was looking about this time last year, so that must have been the 2012 model.  maybe the 2011's were different, or maybe i'm wrong.

I have a Titleist 14 way premium stand bag. Really nice bag - lots of room, fits nicely on my cliqgear too. Agree with previous post, it's a sun mountain bag with titleist badging. I was interested in the sun mountain hybrid, but local golf town dint carry them.

    • Right, but then you're just getting into however different people value different things (including money, the performance of their golf clubs, the looks of the golf clubs, the value of a name brand, etc.). People have different values. For something like this, there's rarely any agreement on those, nor is there any "right" or "wrong" answers. I use a set of muscle backs that could just as easily be from the 1950s as now. The tech on those isn't really improving much (though the shafts are undoubtedly much better).
    • We went round and round a bit on this last year, but I don't remember seeing decision 15-3b/1 mentioned.  The difference between this decision and 27/6 seems to be that B's ball is found in a timely manner.  The finding of the "other" ball makes it virtually certain that A's ball was moved by an outside agency (Player B).  In the other thread, B's ball is never found.  27/6 allows the same kind of relief as long as the "other" ball is found within the 5-minute search limit.  As I read the rules and decisions, this is a timing issue,  the rules require a decision to be made within 5 minutes of beginning the search for A's ball.  If the "other ball" isn't found, its presumed lost.   In a way this is somewhat similar to another discussion we had, where a player's ball apparently hit a cart path and went much further than anticipated.  He searched and didn't find it at the expected distance, went back and played another tee shot for the lost ball, and eventually found the original much closer to the green.  He couldn't then put the original into play and "negate" the second tee ball, as he'd already searched for 5 minutes. I don't know if the difference in the timing of the discovery is adequate justification for the different outcomes, but that seems to me to be the defining factor.  It would be interesting to get the take of some of the USGA rules experts on this, not on what the rules say, but on why they draw the distinction.
    • I'd have thought there would be a sliding scale, akin to a volume discount. Not just $x/18 = per-hole cost. Or if there are obvious points where it's not terrible to get back to the clubhouse, make 3-hole, 7-hole, 11-hole, 15-hole, and 18-hole rates. Then you could even consider the par of the holes. Heck, if the course started par 5, 4, 5 I'd be tempted to just play the first three holes three times.  I'd get more for my money than playing holes 4, 5, and 6 which are pars 3, 4, 3.
    • A couple courses around my house, in the fall, will use this promotion.   
    • As straight to the point as always, been one of those days? .  The advances in tech always amaze me in what they can do given the limits set by the rules. Yes, of course there differenced between Acer and Taylormade. One is a comparatively small company and the other is a huge company with enormous R&D budgets. However, speaking from a the average recreational golfers point view im not sure those differnces in performance will be that noticable to the majority.  Sure guys like yourself will be able to notice them as, lets face it, you probably hit more balls with different types/makes of clubs in a year than i will in my whole life. I just wonder how many people use the older stuff and why (other than its cheaper than buying more gear)
