Hi All,

 

I've been frequenting the threads trying to find a stand bag for me.  The two main bags I've used the last several years are Ping Hoofer (2016 or so) and 2020 Sun Mountain 2.5.

 

I love the Hoofer - it's obviously heavier, but the thing that gets me is the club tangle.  I know people talk about putting clubs in standing up, but even so and especially when on my Clicgear 3.5, I have trouble with snagging and clubs not sitting well (I love the look of a clubs sitting beautifully in the bag, descending from iron to iron). However the pockets, water bottle, glove velcro on the corner of the water bottle pocket are all beautiful little wrinkles.  Also, it seems to twist a lot on the 3.5.

 

I like the 2.5.  My main complaint is that I wish it had one more pocket, and the top compartment gets too crowded (4 headcovers + mallet putter).  Also, the material seems flimsy.

 

I'm really interested in a 5 way top with the putter-well style.  The only two bags I've seen like this are the Nike Air Sport Lite and Jones Utility Trouper, neither of which seem to be too highly thought of by the frequent posters here.  On the other hand, I read a forum where someone suggests the Hoofer tangle is better on new models -- any truth to that?  Seems unlikely to me.

 

I know this is all nitpicking and it may just be a matter of accepting the best trade off for, but does anyone have any input on the Jones or Nike?  Or any notable changes in Hoofers over the last 5 years?

 

I appreciate any input.  It's easy to look at bags in the shops, tougher to gauge what happens when you get them out on the course!

No complaints from me with the Nike.  I bought a 2020 Hoofer and I’m leaning to sell the Nike.   I was in the same boat with really liking the putter well on both the Jones and the Nike,  the Jones shoulder strap system is a nightmare if you carry.  The Nike straps are perfect and easy to adjust

That's good to hear -- I like the looks of the Nike and the price is great.  But it seems like the reviews are only so so.  Thanks!
