Well today was supposed to be the day.  But it seems the weather across the country is going to cause some delay.  My bag "left" Texas on the 12th, but I haven't seen a scan or update since, and as of last night the tracking is telling me to check for an updated delivery date tomorrow. 😞

Completely understand from UPS's side of things, but its frustrating because OGIO had told me they were going to ship it overnight air for me and it went out ground.

the wait continues! 

I hate to hear they didn't ship it air like they said they were going to, but the delay is understandable considering the weather in Texas. At least they are sending it UPS and they seem to get product out and delivered quickly. Hopefully it'll be arriving on your doorstep soon, I know you've been excited about the Woode.

Yeah I have zero issues with UPS making sure their people are safe. I know it will get here before Spring, so it’s all good... my clubs are just a little cold. [emoji23]image-2021-02-17-12:45:48-177.jpg

Bags in! Looks like it will work very well with my CaddyTec v8 push cart.  Seems like there’s enough room in all the pockets and they open pretty far.

it’s not perfect though, the valuables pocket is lined, but it’s just the snap pocket so it’s not waterproof, which is a little weird.  Don’t mind the missing 56* wedge. I haven’t picked it up from the store from my shaft swap yet.

the top organizes clubs so nicely so even if I don’t love the other features this may stay with me. After setting this up I grabbed the 8 and 9 irons a few times and didn’t notice any binding so it seems like the dividers are working well enough even if they aren’t full pocketed dividers. They go basically all the way down and are anchored in the corners of the bag. 
 

will this be the bag for 2021? I’ll sleep on it, but that top might just seal the deal

I'll be taking mine out for its maiden voyage this weekend. I should know within 1 round being strapped to a cart if it's going to stay or be taken back to swap for another bag. Luckily here in AZ, we don't have issues with moisture otherwise that side snap pocket would be a concern for sure. I'll keep the group posted on my thoughts post-round.

Sorry if you mentioned it before... are you a walker, push cart mafia, or riding dirty?

So I do a little bit of everything. probably about 60% riding dirty and 30% push cart and every once in a blue moon I'm feeling healthy and I'll strap up.

I’ll be interested to hear how you like it on a cart. I’ve always still just left my clubs in the “carry” configuration with the Woode top since they’re on the side and out of the way.

I've been really interested in this bag. I love my Grom with the 14 way diamond top. Checked it out at the PGA Superstore today and I'm sold. Then I saw this color pattern and there are no doubts anymore.

Played a round yesterday but only 9 holes. I did have a chance to zip through quite a bit of different terrain... well mostly just hills and bumps and various turns. The jury's still out on the bag as a whole but I didn't have any clubs jumping out of order. In fact, they all seemed to hold a straight line up the left side of the bag. I forgot to take a pic but I'll reenact what I'm referring to and snap a pic in my garage. It is really nice having all of the long clubs lined up on the right. I'm not disliking everything so far but I'm not sure how much I'm loving it either. I'm playing 18 this weekend on a full-size track so that will be the true test. 

Pics to come

I have an older Woode bag. The quick summary on the system...

Amazing for carrying and push carts, terrible for "riding dirty" as they bounce around all over the place and clatter each other.

Currently deciding what shaft to use in blank cells...

It is intriguing to say the least, just not priced right.

I never had any issues riding on a cart with my old one... at least no more than an other bag.  I find my irons would bang around in a cart in anything from a 4-way to a 14-way bag.  I didn't try a silencer bag or anything that locked them in place.  Have you found something that works really good for carts as well as push/carry?

No, in the UK carts are pretty much the exception rather than the rule. 95% of the time i will be pushing or carrying. If I know its going to be a cart day ill use a 14 way instead so there is less movement. The heads will still clatter, but the entire clubs wont be jumping about in the big openings. If you could load the bags at an angle that would be ideal.

Did they market the prior as a  "Hybrid" too? I've always known hybrid bags to be designed for both cart and carry functions. Maybe they've made some tweaks that seem to pair a little better with a cart this go around? 

Again, I've only had about a half a round but the clubs all seemed to stay in place and in order pretty nicely. I do know that my arrangement is probably different from what OGIO intended. All of the marketing pics I've seen show the shorter irons placed toward the back or the side the stand is on. I think maybe in general this is a setup that many might use. I like to have the clubs that I use more frequently toward the front of the bag so not sure if this aids or hinders in the way they naturally sit in the bag. I do want to try and arrange the clubs sitting in the slots with the shafts at an angle in the bag and see if they still naturally all fall to the outside again or stay put. 

Below is pretty much how the clubs fall naturally in the bag and stayed through the round and when the bag is on its side in the car, etc. The only thing I'm not too sure about being a + or - is having to be more aware of how I'm putting the clubs back in the bag as to make sure I don't put them back out of place in the lineup.

So I'm so very sad to report that the Woode has gone back to the store 😢

When I bought the bag, I had intended to use it for about 75% "riding dirty" and 25% carrying. Living in AZ, I do play a fair amount of summer golf in 90 - 110* weather that just isn't conducive to walking without passing out dead. I was hopeful that the "Hybrid" title meant that equal thought was put into the riding as it was the walking. The first 9 hole round was played on my little exec with very little undulation so the arrangement of the clubs through the round didn't seem like much of an issue. 

This past Saturday however, I put the bag through its real test at Gold Canyon on the Dinosaur Mountain course. This is a very classic AZ hills type course. Lots of elevated tees and greens, forced carry, uneven lies, etc. What I found was that with nearly every hole, the clubs seemed to be bouncing around each other and were just jumping out of order. This immediately punched my OCD square in the jaw. 

I will say this that aside from the cart riding disfunction of the top, the rest of the bag is a total winner IMO. I was actually getting on with the quick-access snap pockets pretty well. The rest of the pockets, material, build quality and thought put into the placement of the pockets, zipper pulls, etc all checked the boxes for me. I really like the square-ish shape of the top which did seem to sit and stay locked into the cart pretty nicely without shifting or rotating as bags can do throughout the round. Colorways, and aesthetics are awesome! The function and build quality of the legs and opening mechanism was top-notch too.

I will say that if OGIO decides to make a 14 slot bag inspired by this bag, I'd buy it in a heartbeat! OGIO if you're listening (probably not), please make this bag with the same plastic/rubber top, the wood slots down the right side, and individual full-length slots for each club. You would have a homerun bag for us dirty riders!

Can't blame you for trying.  I'm still on the fence because of the snap pocket for the valuables... still just goes against my logic as much as the top seems perfect for a push cart.  I also got spoiled by the quality pockets and feel of the Vessel bags with the Speedzone stand bag last season... while that one had a 4 way top I didn't love, the players 2.0 6 way looks pretty damn tempting... good thing they're out of stock right now. 😆

I'm going to browse around PGASS Friday, but it seems I'm going to need to start my own bag company to get what I want... 🙂

you, me, and the rest of the golf world 😛 It seems there will never be the "Perfect" bag. 

In case you cared to know, this is what I ended up swapping the Woode out for.. It was listed was the MGS best "Hybrid" stand bag for 2021. Not sure who it was in the ring with but it won nonetheless. It should be arriving sometime next week.

That does look sharp, and funny enough was one of the ones I wanted to look at.  I haven't seen that colorway yet, that looks fantastic.  Looking forward to your comparison next week!
