Vessel VLX: Club Tangle or Smooth Operator?

Recommended Posts

The GFORE Killer Luxe has caught my attention, where I believe it is a white labeled Vessel VLX.

 - I currently use a Sun Mountain 14-way 4.5lb
 - The top of the GFORE bag looks so small…but I’m a sucker for blue camo and have golf store gift cards to light on fire

 

Question: Vessel VLX
 - Put 14 clubs in it = is it tangle-y? I have standard grips and just an Pistol 1.0 on my putter

Ended up going VLX over the GFORE

  • GFORE (on the right in pics) had more room on the top but also had a fabric base whereas VLX hand less room on top and a hard plastic base
  • VLX also had more space on the grab handle for your fingers to get under, which I liked. The VLX compact size is intriguing after using Sun Mountain 14-Way (on the right in pics) for some time now. My shafts may get dinged up a bit more but it looks like a joy to carry. TBD - still need to try it out.

Any further update on your purchase of the VLX?  Worried it’s too tight for 14 clubs.

Hey guys sorry for the delay. 
 - golfmart San Diego for the store

 

ended up returning the bag. It was FANTASTIC to carry, put in the car, etc. due to the size. Minor tangle but non issue if you make the bag vertical to grab the club. 
 

return reasons:

 - the tighter fit was dinging up my putter grip a little bit

 - that made me worry about my shafts getting worn out etc. 

 - when it was colder I wore 2 layers and it was hard-ish to fit the thicker layers into the side pockets, which don’t stretch all the way to the top like g fore. 
 

I really liked the look and carry feel of the bag but like the more spaciousness of my sun mountain 14.
