Against…mainly as my only experience was with the plastic tubes from years ago.  Saw some shaft wear with those and increased overall bag weight.

Haven't really been in the market for a bag, but my preference is a stand bag…not sure if there are any 14 divider stand bags out there (they may exist, just haven’t looked as I love my Ping Hoofer).

Nike Air Hybrid 2 14 way and love it.  No club tangles is the main thing I like.  And I like the organization, i.e. I know where each club is.  I used a Ping Hoffer 6 way I think.  But club tangling drove me nuts, particularly when at the range and the bag was tilted on the legs.  No such issues with the Nike.

I have a full length 14-way SM C-130 for my Clicgear/Alphard V2 - easy in/out for the inclined setup and muffles bag chatter. But that’s about all it seems good for and I switch to my trusty Ping Freestyle if I’m carrying, practicing or traveling. It’d be nice to find a lightweight 14-way carry setup that wouldn’t constantly twist sideways on the Clicgear so I could stop swapping gear between two bags.

I had a 5 way stand bag, and I felt that’s all I needed when I started playing. Then I started riding in a cart more cause let’s face it, I’m not going to walk when it’s 94 with a heat index of 101 or when it’s 60 and below. I had an oogio stand bag and when I finally got a cart bag I got a Subtle Patriot tier 1 cart bag and it’s a 14 way bag. I love it cause I only have 13 clubs so I have a spot for my extra driver shaft(which I would be ok with getting rid of), alignment sticks, and my orange ball warm up stick.

I prefer the 14 way bag and the organization of it. With 5 ways bags I had in the past the clubs in each spot would always bunch in one corner, tangle up and meanwhile there is a big empty hole next to it.

I have been looking at 14/15-way hybrid bags. I have a Taylormade  7-way carry/stand bag that I chose for my work 25th anniversary gift 18 months ago (just after getting back into golf). I mostly use a push cart or ride now (only carry occasionally for 9) and club bunching is frustrating, as is snagging on the fabric divider covers when removing clubs. I have a mix of midsize, jumbo and JumboMax oversized grips (trying a few out) and it's getting a little snug in there.

I have a list of 'must haves' and 'would likes' from a new bag and having full length dividers with space for a full set of oversize/ Jumbomax grips is a 'must have'. I would ideally like a bag with ClickLock to connect properly with my BagBoy Nitron push cart, but I'll take a hybrid bag that works with the clubs I use, a drinks cooler compartment, removable carry strap, cart strap pass-through and that looks good. Ha ha.

I'm a 14 way fan. But they have to be done right. You need full length dividers for each slot. You need an oversize putter slot and a decent cooler compartment. 

The Cobra bag I received during the Cobra Challenge would be perfect if it had full length dividers for each slot. But I'm living with it because everything else is very good.

I also have the Bag Boy Chiller. Everything is really good except it is just too large for my Club Glove Pro travel bag.

I have a MotoCaddy 14 way but the club slots are too tight. Spacing is tight and it is difficult to get the clubs in and out and it does not have a cooler pocket.

I've tried several other bags that did not have 14 way top and I found that my clubs always got tangled. Tacky mid size grips need to be separated.

The Bag Boy chiller has my attention, mainly due to the Top Lock compatibility with my Bag Boy Nitron cart. I like the idea of it being stable and not twisting at all during the round!

I'm on my second 14 way bag.

I bought a HotZ bag about two and a half years ago, because it came with a logo that I wanted to sport - an Air Force branded bag to drive the Navy guys nuts.  The bag was alright, I did like the way it layed my clubs out, but the dividers did not go all the way down and after about a year and a half - probably better than 150 rounds - there was no way to keep the shafts/grips from migrating.  It also started to collapse when it was on the cart, making it difficult to get clubs at that side of the bag in and out.

I just bought a Sun Mountain bag.  I gained two pockets and the existing pockets are larger.  The valuables pocket is a much better pocket, with a protected and water tight zipper, and for the few times to date that it's been on the cart it has performed very well.  I do miss how the HotZ bag layed my clubs out, and I'm still getting used to this layout - I keep the Cleveland Launcher next to my driver because I put the head cover on it when I'm at the tee, and I keep my 2 iron next to my Hybrid because that head cover will stay on the 2 iron when the Hybrid is in use - so I've had to do some re-arranging, and that means once in a while double-checking to make sure I've grabbed the correct club.

I strongly prefer a 14 way bag.  When this one wears out I'll buy another.

14 with club separation and external putter tube, will be my next bag for sure!

Recently saw these Ram bags and love the concept! Unsure if they are full-length dividers or just a topper.

Than saw this one today in an ad

And the AskEcho bags have been getting alot of attention lately tool. But they are not cheap

For me it depends on the purpose of the bag. I have a lighter stand bag that I use for walking/push cart, and then I have a cart bag. The stand bag has only 4 dividers and it's great for that purpose. The cart bag pictured below I picked up for Christmas and it has 15 way individual dividers that extend the length of the bag. It makes it easier to pull clubs out of a cart and put them back in. I love it.
