Ogio bags have always intrigued me and when the shling system was released, that was the clincher . . . I had to have one.


Long story short, I was greatly disappointed in the Ogio Vision . . . and I've only owned two Ogio bags in my lifetime and between the two of the combined, they've seen exactly ONE round of use. The first bag was returned to the store and the Vision sold before it ever saw a course.


Most will confirm that they are HEAVY and that was probably my biggest complaint too. Other concerns were the features they include in their bags can either be viewed as innovative or gimmicky, depending on who you ask. I wasn't crazy about the overall ergonomics of their bags (probably just used to many years of using Pings). Lastly, I was always annoyed with their slopping stitching - but that's probably just me being anal.

I've played Ping bags for a long time until earlier this year. Picked up a Hoofer Xtreme and wanted to like that bag, but it was terrible. I've checked out the new and improved version a couple weeks ago, but it seems the grips will still get stuck with the crappy full length dividers they use and there isn't a separate putter well. Now I use an Ogio Grom and it has been a great bag. It is a little heavier on paper, but a 1lb difference is hardly noticeable.

NOTHING IS BETTER THAN THE HOOFER VANTAGE I HAVE PERSONALLY TESTED THEM OUT THEY ARE SO LIGHT AND EASY TO CARRY ITS INSANE!!! They have a laser finder pocket, tee pocket , h2o pocket and plenty of other space.


Check out this Vantage

I have an '06 Hoofer Extreme and like it well enough . . . but you should check out the other thread in this section about the new Nike bags coming out at the end of this year.


The Sasquatch Tour Carry Bag looks awesome!!!


I still have their older Tour Air Carry Bag, which I consider one of the best bags I've ever had . . . but it's just hard for me to use anything for over one year straight!!! Always tempted to get the new stuff when it comes out!!!

Ogio. The woode top is the best. I hated how with my old hoofer the clubs would always get tangled and it was a mess. My vaporlite is like there cheapest model and it still has all the stuff you need and some. There nicer models are insane with pockets and stuff. The zipperless ball pocket and the ball silos are cool on the nicer models.

Im gonna have to say the Sun Mountain Lightning ES would be my current favorite. Very light, comfortable, and holds everything I could want. the top divider where I put my woods/putter is a little cramped though. That would be the only bad thing I can say about it. I will have to try the Hoofer one of these days, in which case I may have to convert to the GolfWrx Hoofer :idhitit:

I have many stand bags and the one I get the most complimants on is the new Cleveland Tour Stand bag. You can pick them up for about $160. Here is the picture of the bag. I have the matching red white and blue launcher head covers. I also have a red white and blue Jan Craig headcover that looks great with it. I will try to post pictures of my bag later but here is the bag.
