golf bag?

Postby kitepamlico » Tue Dec 14, 2010 1:56 pm

Which golf bag should I get? Gets through cheap and carries the most? Durability, cost?

I just traveled with the Slingshot golf bag, it has a hidden area where boards go to only show kites, however i was blown off, when the lady at the counter went ' is there anything else in your golf bag?'
I responded 'NO', and went 'charge free', hell yeahhhh! scored!!! :jump:

I used Mystic golf bag domestically (USA) over the summer - packed one lightwind TT, a 17m and 11m kites, wetsuits, etc. Hit the 50lb limit before I overstuffed the bag.

No questions no issues when I checked it in.

I went through with two Dakine bags that can clip together... I separated them, one was "mine" and the other was my friends and I really think the best trick here is to check in curbside and have a fat tip in your hand that you give to the guy before he starts checkin ur bags.... I paid just 30 each for an extra bag as opposed to the 200 per board bag that was stated on Delta's website...
Good luck

My feeling is that most airline personnel now knows about the fake golf bags

A friend of mine always packs a golf club in his bag, just in case there is any doubt about whether it is a golf bag or not :)

The Liquid Force Gold bag is really cool and not too big in size like most of the golf bags out there.
It looks more like a golf bag than most others do too.
It has a cool logo spelling: GO-LF , so it looks like golf but the Idea is LF=Liquid Force.

Dakine also came out this year with a nicely padded gold bag.

The NSI is the most common golf bag. I worked in a kite shop , and that was a big seller.

Slingshot golf bag is the best its been and worth a look! Totally stoked on how much it can carry and all the detail pockets that make a bag legit. Have been using it for the past year and all zippers and buckels, straps are still going good. ALSO a big improvement has been the YKK zippers standard on all bags. :cool2:
