Those are awful, and I'm a huge Hoofer fan. I was thinking of picking up a 4 series and think I better do it now...

Seriously, could they have picked any less attractive colour combinations, and the logo design adopted from the stand bags - not for me.

I really miss the old-school single color Hoofers. Sometimes less is more.

I will be interested in seeing these in person. Some of them do look really busy and I don't like the copper color.

But the new strap system looks interesting. The water bottle pocket on the Hoofer Lite looks to be a nice update. The one on the last 4 Series was awfully shallow and seemed better for a smaller bottle than even a 20 oz. bottle.

I am in the market for a new stand bag. I've had both Ping and Titleist in the past and will probably get one of those again (or Sun Mountain perhaps).

Driver: Ping G400, 9.5, Ping Tour shaft
3W: Ping G400, Ping Tour shaft
Hybrid: Callaway XR 19 degree
Irons: Mizuno JPX-900 Hot Metal 4-PW
Wedges: Vokey SM6 52, 56, 60
Putter: Bettinardi Queen Bee 8 is the most likely option

What does the Hooter Lite weigh? All I saw was that it was “feather light”  (whatever that means)

Are there any major differences from the 2017 Hoofer?  They look about the same to me.

Interesting comment on the water bottle holder.  I actually thought the water bottle holder on the most recent 4 series was the best of any bag on the market.  Even though it did seem shallow, I never had a problem with my water bottle falling out.  I'd stash a 20oz hydroflask in it w/ no problems.  I think the new hoofer water bottle holder looks like it might be perfect.

Also interesting that they point out the deployable rain hood on the hoofer, but not hoofer lite.  Wondering if they went to a more streamlined hood on the lite version.

There are a few good colorways and I look forward to checking these out in person.

I saw last night that my local PGA Tour Superstore had the new Ping bags in stock, so I made a stop out there today to check them out.

A couple of things of note:

- I think the new strap system could be good. It's hard to know until you have clubs in the bag and it's on your shoulders. The right strap and left strap are clearly different and Ping put thought into the system. Much better padding than the Titleist straps.
- That said, one thing I have always liked about Ping bags is that it is easy to just use one strap and carry it on one shoulder if you just have a short green-to-tee walk or something. Will be interesting to see if that is the case with the new strap system.
- One thing I liked about the new Hoofer is the pocket above the main ball pocket. It's a great place to put a rangefinder. In the new model, it actually doesn't have a zipper. Instead it's a magnet closure. On my current 4 Series, I basically never zipped it up until the end of the round and I'm guessing I'm not the only one who did that. The magnet closure is a nice balance between convenience and security
- The apparel pocket is bigger on this Hoofer. There are still two pockets, so the big pocket doesn't take up the entire length of the bag, but it is better
- I still don't love the lines on the apparel pocket of both bags. They are kind of shiny and pretty busy. The ones that are, for example, black on black look better than the contrasting colors, in my opinion
- I said previously that I liked the water bottle pocket better on the Hoofer Lite than on the 4 Series. I changed my mind after seeing it in person. I think it is going to be a pain getting the bottle in and out of there.
- The water bottle pocket on the new Hoofer looks great.

Just a few thoughts. Hopefully that is helpful. I might actually like the Hoofer more than the Hoofer Lite, but I'm not sure.
