Push cart bags

We have carry bags. And we have cart bags. But most cart bags do not work well for push carts. You need to reverse the woods and irons to get to the pockets and if the bag has a slant to it, that doesn't work well.
I have a BBC Maxfli cart 4.0 which works ok. No slant. But if I have to carry it anywhere, the irons flop the wrong way.
Maybe we need a whole new catagory.

    I use my Ping Traverse on a push cart all the time and it works fine. I don't have any issues accessing clubs or pockets.

    My Ping Pioneer bag fit just fine on my Clic Gear 3.5+ the other day. If you want a bag to fit perfectly to a push cart buy the cart bags that those push cart companies sell.

    I have a Sun Mountain tour series and pair it with a Sun Mountain Speed Cart. Don't have any issues with having to switch woods around or accessing pockets.

    Went through a phase of trying to walk more using a push cart. Bought the cart and SM sync bag which is specifically made for push carts and have yet to use it. This was like e years ago. Lol. I should probably just sell it.

    Bagboy Chiller. Best bag I've ever had; has a stand, great pockets, meant for a push cart, and far cheaper than other hybrid bags.

    I have two SM bags, a 4.5 and a Sync. Both work well on push carts,

    Sun Mountain C130S does the trick for me. If I'm not riding then it easily goes onto my Clicgear for when I walk. Full length dividers, plenty of pockets and sturdy legs for when you need them.

    I have a 4 wheel Clicgear (dont remember model). It works great with both my carry bags and ogio Silencer cart bag.

    Perhaps you need a better cart and not a different bag???

    Lol. Sounds familiar to me. I had a SM C-130 and it was just too much bag. Bought a sync and it was perfect. Had a bright idea that I wanted to walk a bit and bought a BB quad. Used it once at a local par 3 and that was it. Sold it and never looked back.

    The one strap only matters if you are going to carry, right? I don't carry anymore, though I walk 90% of my rounds, and using one strap to get from the car to the range is not a problem. It's a great bag.

    It's not the cart. Most cart bags are designed so it goes on a riding cart with the ball pocket and the irons facing out. Am I wrong? Then when you go to put it on a push cart the irons flip back toward the woods. Right? So I reverse the irons to the non ball pocket side and the woods to the ball pocket side. But this is impractical on most of the bags due to the slant of the bag.
    Maybe I'm too particular.
    I will look into the models you all suggested.
    Thanks.

    I think you have to decide what you want.

    If you are going to carry at all, then get a carry bag and by all means get the adapter(s) that Clicgear makes to keep carry bags in place when you use them on a push cart.

    If you are never going to carry, but still want a stand for the parking lot and the range, then the two best on the market are the Bagboy Chiller and the Sun Mt. C130 version with a stand. I'd add that with the Bagboy, you can put the long clubs in the middle and the irons down the two sides; it goes on a push cart exactly the same way that it does on a motorized cart.

    People are not understanding OP's desire. He is saying something that is true, that a bag top configuration for a push cart/trolley is the opposite of a good configuration for a riding cart/buggy. The way I deal with it is to get a bag top that is not slanted, set the clubs up for the push cart, and live with it on a riding cart.

    Once you get your push cart going 95% chance you're never going back to carrying. Get the back that works best for that. Even if you spend a fair bit of time at the range.

    Comparisons are odious.

    Correct! Exactly what I want. I never carry. Push 95% rise 5%. And I have done w by at you suggest. Use a bag with no slant. Now if I could get someone to put the carry strap back where it should be...I'd be set.
    I need to find cheap medium sized STAFF bag. Perfection!!

    I believe both Sun Mountain and Clic Gear have bags you can use on their push carts that reverse the lay out of the clubs so that your woods are on the top when the bag is installed on the push cart.

  • MPSgolfsMPSgolfs Members Posts: 76 ✭✭

    Clic Gear 3.5+ is what I use. Currently have an old stand bag that definitely does not suit the push cart set-up. In the market for a new bag. Have read that SM Sync and Ping Pioneer both work. Curious about srixon z85 cart bag and a few others.

  • CatoctinCatoctin Members Posts: 40 ✭✭

    Sync does work great, I have one. Problem is no legs for when at range that doesn't have bag stands. I recently bought a Ogio Alpha Convoy 514 RTC (Range to Cart) bag. So far really liking it. Flat top so works well in riding cart and also on push cart. Don't have to turn woods/irons around like I did in my Sync bag. Its a little odd having the wedges near my back when riding instead of by the putter, but honestly its just not that big a deal and you want them in those places anyway for when you are using the stand on the range. You don't want wedges hitting your graphite shafts, etc. Also love the magnetic carry handle that allows you to easily detach it so you can stow the strap when riding or when on my powered push cart. TGW runs a sale every few weeks on these. List is $300 but got mine for $240 on sale.

    Are you selling your Sync? What colour is it?

    Thanks for the info. I'm going to mull over my options. My two main ranges have bag stands. But I'm sure the stand feature is one of those things I'll only need once I don't have it.

  • cxxcxx Members Posts: 3,089 ✭✭

    I've always had push carts and stand bags and never had a problem accessing clubs or pockets. Carts have been lay down trikes, like the speed cart, and bags have been mostly Sun Mountain. The valuables pocket works great for the range finder.

    I do find that most carts are now more upright but that seems to be a design flaw. I'm not opposed to catching a ride up the hill with 5 switchbacks and the simple trike carts work much better for that.

    It is kind of a category of bag that doesn't seem to exist anymore. I bought my current bag almost 10 years ago before a time away from the game, and I guess its a "mini" staff bag, but its all synthetic material, and lightweight. But its perfect for the pull cart, and is **** on a drive cart, I have to turn it sideways when we ride because the carry handle is right on the back, and it has pockets on all 4 sides. Its almost designed only to be run on a pull cart. Or be carried by a caddy cause it has no legs on it. My pal has a drive cart specific bag, and when he puts it on the pull cart, all his irons fall over towards his woods which are then on the bottom, I guess he doesn't mind but it drives me nuts to even look at lol. I dont think theres really a do it all perfectly bag, I'll likely buy a proper drive cart bag eventually, because mine really sucks in the car but is perfect on the pull cart and I walk most of the time but dont really wanna carry.
    So in conclusion, I have no helpful suggestion for you haha

    Heres what I mean......

    check out Tour Edge Exotics. my model is the Xtreme 3. fourteen slots, a dedicated umbrella sleeve.
    had it going on three years, perfect for pushcart or the odd times I have to ride.
    almost as much storage space as a C130, plus the big third pocket in front has a drain hole if you want to pack it with ice for drinks. still pleased with how its held up after thirty to forty rounds a season.
    super value.

    Steelhead III , FT-5 - D
    Warbirds, 3+, 4
    Hogan BH-5, 3-PW

    it works

    when I need a change, there are 12 bags full to choose from .

    Bad photo but you should get the idea. I got this Bennington Quiet Organizer 14 cause i hated the clubs clanking crazy in the riding cart, but now that i'm mostly walking with a push cart it has worked out great. The angle issue that you spoke about isn't really present here. The tilt goes the opposite way and is very easy to find a club, no tangle in the bag. I don't think i could go back to a standard bag at this point.
