2019 Ping DLX vs 2017


Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

All of a sudden I have the itch to replace my perfectly capable 2015 Ping Pioneer.  Completely unnecessary.  That said, has anyone compared the NEW 2019 Ping DLX for the prior generation?  It's a $40 difference on BudgetGolf.  Comparisons vs the Pioneer would also be appreciated.

I hate to respond since I can’t do the comparison but I just bought my first Ping bag and it’s the 2019 DLX (Grey, white and scarlet) and I love it so far. Got rid of a perfectly good Titleist lightweight cart bag. Plenty of storage in this one. 15 slots for extras like alignment sticks, drizzle stik etc.... full club separation which is one of my pet peeves from the Titleist. The magnetic closure pocket is the best one I found and I compared them all at Golf Galaxy. It even has pull out shoe or flip flop pockets that come from behind the big saddle pocket and don’t take up any room for your stuff inside. Big wide putter well. I do not run the cart strap thru the pass through behind the big saddle pouches. It’s really not necessary. There’s even a key ring holder in the right side pocket. Glove Velcro on both side to stick a rotating sweating glove. Large drink cooler in the front bottom that I rarely use for that (ball pouch for me) except when I walk. I took the cooler cover off and had my name and club embroidered on it to match the bag colors for only 10 bucks.

I won't be able to offer any comparisons either, but the DLX I have is the 2017(?) model I picked up from Global Golf during their year-end clearance that year around Christmas time. It's black & grey with blue highlights that I believe was geared to match the G-Series stuff they had at the time before the G400 came out. Anyhow, doing my normal diligence of on-line research at the time, MGS had their most-wanted bags article up ( https://mygolfspy.com/2017-golf-cart-bag-buyers-guide/ ) where it was #2 right behind the Pioneer. To me, the DLX (deluxe-?) was simply a Pioneer but with a vinyl shell rather than a cloth-like exterior, and I felt the vinyl would be better at shedding rain, dust & dirt and also stand up to the abuse of a former Marine. So far, so good. This bag is AWESOME! So much storage and so well thought out! Shoe storage, personal affects pouches, clip for keys, Velcro for the glove, magnetic pocket lid for RF, 15-way divider with a big putter well, handles in all the right places, etc., etc... If you wind up getting into one, you won't be disappointed.

I just went to a local Uniform shop here in Tulsa. They sell all of the doctors and nurses and service companies their uniforms. They have a pretty elaborate embroidery system and I brought in the nag and we just matched up the thread colors and I picked some fonts. I bet any embroidery place will do it for cheap. Just unzip that bottom pocket cover and take it to them.

I know this is a wicked old thread now. However, I’ve been on the hunt for this bag, given its not the new version I’ve had a hard time finding it. If you run into another gray one, used even, can you let me know?
