Best Bags for Pushcarts

Best Bag for a Pushcart

I recently acquired a Rovic rv1s to go with an Alphard V2.  I have a Sun Mountain SCB that was made for my Speedcart, but it doesn't pair as well as I'd like with the Rovic.

Any suggestions on bags that work great specifically for a Rovic?

The Rovic rv1s seems to be made for a stand bag by the design. On the website it states compatible with most stand bags. Have you found your current bag is too big for it? If so as you know sun mountain makes great stand bags. Figure you couldn’t go wrong with a sun mountain 4.5 14 way bag.

I have a SM SCB as mentioned.  I also have a SM C150 that I was looking to replace AND a Ping Hoofer.  C150 for when I ride, SCB for push and Hoofer when I carry, but really for vaca golf with a caddy.

Clicgear also states standbags for their bigger "flagship" cart. The hoofer would obviously work, but not enough storage, and I'd still have the handle issue.  I put the C150 on the cart and it pretty much dominates the cart with it's size.

I got the Rovic for three reasons: swivel front wheel for Alphard V2, MGS "Most Wanted" cart AND I got it for "free" through work using points.

Unfortunately, I think the handle is a design flaw on the Rovic. I can lower the handle to solve the problem, but then it's not at the optimal pushing height.  HOWEVER, I'll have the ewheels, so how much pushing will I be doing any way....

I prefer a bag with 14/15 individual slots with plenty of storage, large cooler pocket, dedicated range finder pocket.  The SCB doesn't have a laser pocket, so I use the valuables pocket.  No biggy - valuables go in my valuables pouch.

I really don't want to put a STANDbag on PUSHcart even if it's just for the principle of it!  🙂

I'll probably get a new C130 anyway and try that out.  I want one for riding anyway.  I COULD use my current SCB, but I want more storage.

I was just hoping someone had a perfect setup that they could share - not too big, not too small.

Looks good, Chip!

I did buy a 2020 SM C130 at Dick's tonight.  I was returning a Bushnell Pro XE that I bought yesterday.... might start a new thread about that laser.

The C150 was $249 online, and Dick's had one in the store. I wanted the black, grey and white one, and fortunately that's the one they had.  Even better it was marked down to $199.  I ended up getting another $20 off at the register.

It looks good on my charcoal Rovic.  I have to flip the clubs, putting the woods on top otherwise the irons would bang into their graphite shafts.  Plus, woods on the bottom would crowd the storage compartment on the cart.  ...I'm able to put the cart handle in the most upright position without any issues.  

Still not sure if this will be the bag I use for the Rovic.  

Sidenote: I found out that my umbrella handle doesn't fit into the cart's holder.... great.

that’s a good deal on a nice bag!

i mostly use the storage net for my phone, so i don’t worry about my driver and 3w blocking the net. 

i prefer to use the storage that’s already on my bag for balls, tees, my rangefinder, etc.

The Rovic storage compartment has a cover that snaps shut.  I keep my phone in there as well, but I check it often for music selection (Yes, I'm one of THOSE guys.).  I also used the Bushnell GPS app, so I'm in and out of that compartment quite a bit.  My GPS use will wain, I'm sure, but I do like the shot distance feature.

The Rovic storage compartment is much bigger, so I'll probably keep my wallet (quicker access for cart girl) in it as well and possibly fey fob.  ...I'll figure it out

The real/bigger issue is the irons banging into the graphite shafts of the woods.

This post us most timely. I’m in the market for a new bag as well. I have a Clicgear 3.5+. I saw a YouTube video that McGolf Custom Clubs did featuring a Sun Mountain rep. She showed a bag called Sync that was specifically designed for pushcarts. It looks interesting and worth checking out.

The Sync doesn’t even fit a Sun Mountain cart very well. I had one on a SM and now have an MGI Navigator battery operated cart that it’s just OK on. Not sure what it’s supposed to “sync” with.

When the Sync first came out, the bottom of the bag had an indentation that matched the support of the SM MicroCart.  It locked the foot of the bag in place; no straps needed.  I may be wrong, but I think the Sync no longer has that feature.  I had the original Sync and the SM MicroCart, and it was a good combo.  I still have the cart, but the bag wore out quickly and I now put a W/S stand bag on the cart.  Works fine with no straps.  When just going to the range, the stand bag is nice.

The only way to be super sure it works is to put it on the push cart to see. Or at least if online check dimensions.  Have a SM Bag with a Sun Mountain push cart that does not fit, requires a few pull ups during round to get in better place - only slightly annoying.

I picked up a Bag Boy Quad XL a few years ago and used on older Sun Mountain C-130 bag. I was fortunate to be chosen this last year to test the Bag Boy Chiller bag. Works well with the cart, as it should, and locks in to place with a Bag Boy specific system. I think you main objective is to get bag and cart that work well together. As is mentioned above, some bags require a few in-round adjustments.

My friend had a ClicGear and the Sync and fit wasn't perfect BUT it seems to have nailed the angle that club are presented while in the bag on the cart.  I've had similar experience with Ping Traverse bags.  But some standard Cart bags don't have the right angles for a bag sitting on a cart (on an angle) vs standing upright on a power cart.  I didn't realize this could be an issue, but it for sure was with an older BagBoy cart bag.

I've never really found any stand bags that work well on carts although my Jones classic stand bag strangely comes closer than most for me.

When I was a public player (20-30 rounds per year) I didn't notice the impacts very much, but when I became a member at a club (50-80) rounds per year, I started to better notice these details - for what it's worth

 

Also, the sunmountain speedcarts seem to take any bag quite well since they simply cradle on the cart - even stand bags seem OK enough on those carts - and they are decent carts - a bit big when folded etc, but super easy in practical use

Well, I got a Cobra Ultralite a couple years ago so when I got my caddytek pushcart I tried it out and was very surprised that it fit perfectly.

I am a fan of the Bag Boy system. Have the Nitron plus the new Revolver bag and love the lock in mechanism.

I'm particular enough to use a different bag when I push, than when I ride, and yet another when I carry (rare)... However all are Ogio. Here's how it looks when I'm pushing the sticks around.

It's puzzling why none of the big name bag manufacturers (that I can find) makes a bag optimized for pushcarts. Cart bags with slanted tops won't work, and stand bags are typically too small and the legs can get in the way. The PING Traverse is the closest I can find that will work pretty well on a pushcart and a riding cart - but you still have to swap woods versus irons to avoid shaft damage and to keep bag pockets easily accessible. I'm swapping woods for irons and vice versa using my old Ogio cart bag, but it's not a good solution for a pushcart.

I have a ClicGear bag that was made for my cart, but I don't think it sold well, as it's not offered any more. Sun Mountain does have the Sync, which is made for their carts.
