Callaway Fusion TopWe love walking the course carrying our clubs because of the freedom of being able to pick up and go. But some aspects of carrying can sometimes be a hassle.

Not fun!  14-way golf carry bags are an answer to stop the tangled mess.

We have identified our top recommendation for a 2018 14-way golf stand bag. Anyone who purchases it will love it. Continue reading Which 14-Way Golf Stand Bag Will You Absolutely Love?

Sun Mountain 4.5 LS Stand/Carry Bag Review

2017 Product Line Update

Sun Mountain understands that the big trade off in carry bags is the weight of the bag versus the number and types of features that are offered.

For 2017, Sun Mountain optimized the level of features and technology that they can offer at a given weight.  Now, when buying a bag, a golfer knows the weight of the bag by its name.  And, they know that as they look at the 2.5 vs 3.5 vs 4.5 vs 5.5 the extent of features increases as the numbers go up.  Congrats to Sun Mountain for clarifying their product line.

Something else that is also clear is that the 4.5 LS is our favorite Sun Mountain bag.  Not too heavy while offering outstanding features. Continue reading Sun Mountain 4.5 LS Stand/Carry Bag Review

Setting Things Straight

Sun Mountain has optimized the level of features and technology that they can offer at a given weight.  Now, when buying a bag, a golfer knows the weight of the bag by its name.  And, they know that as they look at the 2.5 vs 3.5 vs 4.5 vs 5.5 the extent of features increases as the numbers go up.  Congrats to Sun Mountain for clarifying their product line.

While we prefer the 4.5 LS (reviewed  here) the Sun Mountain 3.5 LS has a ton of features at its weight.

Weight

The weight of the Sun Mountain 3.5 LS Stand Bag is 3.5 pounds including straps but not rainhood.

This weight is one of the lightest high-quality bags that we review.  As mentioned in our Buyer’s Guide there is a trade off between weight and features.  Generally, within a product line, the lower the weight the fewer the options.

Getting Clubs In and Out of the Bag

The Sun Mountain 3.5 LS Bag has a four-way top with full length dividers and a diameter of 9”.  Continue reading Sun Mountain 3.5 LS Stand/Carry Bag Review

What Makes a Women’s Golf Stand Bag Different?

Post has been updated with brand new Sun Mountain Women’s Golf Stand Bag offering for 2018. 

When we recently attended the PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando and decided to ask a few of the leading vendors of women’s golf bags to explain what differentiates a women’s golf carry bag form a men’s bag. We received our best answer from Emily the designer and creator of Sassy Caddy. As she walked us through the features of her highly fashionable women’s stand bags she said the difference comes down to three key things :

  • The bags are more stylish and have greater personality
  • The pockets of the bags are tailored to more specialized uses
  • The bags are two inches shorter then men’s golf carry bags to provide a better fit for the shorter length of women’s clubs

In Part 1 of this blog we made the claim that high-quality, single strap golf stand bags were as rare as a blue unicorn. We searched extensively throughout the electronic golf marketplace and discovered that although not quite as rare as the mythical beast, there truly were not many options. It appears that many manufacturers have moved away from single strap models or only offer the option in full-featured caddie and/or staff bags. After looking at about a dozen bags, we found one option that stood out. Continue reading Single Strap Golf Stand Bag — Searching for a Blue Unicorn (Part 2)
