What equipment are you thinking about?

I may have caught the new bag bug. There really isn’t anything wrong with my current bag. Everything has its place but occasionally clubs don’t want to seat properly. I was looking on the Golf Galaxy website for a cart bag. I walk the course using a pushcart so something slightly larger isn’t a big deal. The MyGolfSpy “Best Value” bag, Maxfli Honors+ is on sale for $179.99. Im leaning towards a bit of color in my bag. The other nice thing about a cart bag is the strap won’t get in the way while on the cart like it does with my stand bag.

I’d love to pick up a very lightweight 14 way stand bag.

I was thinking of the Sun Mountain 2.5 14 way, but the color options are very limited. I’ve always owned plain black bags, but now that I’m feeling adventurous it seems the options are limited.

Any suggestions guys?

BTW the less “branding” on the bag, the better.

I've been sporting the Titleist Hybrid 14 for over a year now and LOVE it! I actually started with the Ogio Woode, didn't like it, so took it back to get the Sun Mountain 4.5 that was just not very sturdy when upright and I just don't like the Sun Mountain stand mechanism.. so I finally returned it for the Titleist Hybrid 14. (Thank goodness for Dick's and their no hassle + teenagers that just don't give a crap return policy)

14 way bags are a tricky one because the lighter ones have to cut back on material to stay light, so you usually find that they don't have full length dividers. IMO, what good is a 14 way bag if the grips get all jammed up at the bottom? 

I wouldn't say that the Titleist Hybrid 14 is the lightest, but I've had full carry rounds with it and if planned correctly, you can get it to a very comfortable carry weight and size. It's not overly bulky and all of the compartments are tucked and designed very well. 

Here is the unofficial MGS review that I did on it

 

 

Another option if you're looking for something a little more budget friendly and want to keep with the black theme is the Maltby 14 way bag. I was looking at this the other day. Maltby makes some top level golf clubs. I'm sure this bag is just a general production bag that they put their name on but I'm also sure they put some effort into sourcing a product that they were happy to put their name on.

I've been thinking about a 5w to possibly replace the 18* hybrid and the hybrid has responded in recent weeks by hitting lasers right at the pin.  I want to keep that going so I moved an Epic Speed 5w into my CPO shopping cart!  😁

There's nothing like thinking about replacing a club to get another club to perform better. 😂 Hopefully having the 5W in the cart will keep the hybrid in line.

I bought the Epic Max Heavenwood to replace my 17º hybrid; I hit it very well.  Then my wife said she wanted a 3W, so went to CPO and got her an Epic Speed 3W and threw in an Epic Max 3W for me too.  I thought the Heavenwood would be my longest FW club because I have never hit 3W consistently.  

Today was my first real test using the 3W and it's outstanding!!  Now I'm thinking that the Epic Max 9W will replace my other hybrid.

I went to a PXG fitting yesterday at Circling Raven... Their driver is definitely not for me(either gen 5 version). but their FW woods.... I really want to grab their 7w and 5w. I was hitting the 7w with a 5w F3 Motore shaft, and the 5W with the 3w version of the same shaft... so good. The extra length in the shafts gave me so extra speed/height on my shots. Super consistent and easy to hit. I was dropping the 7w in a pretty neat group right around the 215-220y mark and the 5w right at 230y's. Not sure it is worth the extra few yards for the 5w.. But that 220y 7w really has me wanting one. Now to come to terms with the $459 price with that shaft(including the veterans discount)....

You know this is all your fault!!!  I came to Portland last May to play 9 holes with you and bought the Epic Max Driver.  Now I end up with the 3W, HW, and likely a 9W.  🤣

Their 0341 Gen 1 3 wood is the best 3 wood I’ve ever used. It came with a Project X Even Flow Blue shaft. I bought it with the veterans discount for $95 which makes it even better. 😁

Contemplating a new bag. I have the C130 which is great for wet and cold weather golf as it has tons of space but very bulky. I also have a small carry bag but doesnt fit my push cart great and lacks space especially cold weather and hot weather as I pack plenty of h20. Really need an in between bag.

Just curious, perhaps you can get a bag that attaches to your cart to hold water? For example, Bagboy sells an insulated bag attachment.

I’m thinking about what grip to try besides a Superstroke flatso on my PLD putter. I putt cross hand and like less taper than the stock pingman grip.

How do you carry the water? I have a TaylorMade cart bag on my cart and I use a 3L Osprey bladder. Similar to a Camelbak  is you are familiar with those. The bladder fist nicely in one of the side pockets.

I’m wanting to add a new blade putter to the bag. Scotty was at the top of my list, but Ping’s PLD and Mizuno OMOI2, in all black are really good looking. I think the hard part is testing these at one place.

Thinking of a ping g425 3 wood or 5 wood. Not sure which to get as I only have sim2 driver and 5 hybrid so wanted to know what would be best in between?

... While there are no constants in golf, most should not have a 3 wood in their bag and that includes single digit index players. So a 5 wood is a good choice. Many are surprised to find they hit a 5 wood higher and longer than the 3 wood they were playing because trajectory and spin are your friends with a fairway wood.

That F425 Max 5 wood has a loft of 17.5 plus adjustability.  Personally, I prefer using a 4 wood of 16.5 loft, so I'd be looking really hard at the 5 wood.  It will be easier to hit off tighter lies than a 3 wood and it's doubtful that you'll lose any significant distance by going with the 5 wood.
