Posted 07 November 2017 - 10:55 AM

I'm looking at buying another ping golf bag and while I was looking through my collection, I was realizing how many different styles I had and how great they all were. Then I got to thinking (yes it's scary for me too) what is the best Ping bag made to date? I think the Hoofer really changed the game and I think we would all agree with that but I'm talking about what style of Ping bag was the best?

My gut says the 4 series. Plenty of room for clubs, pockets are awesome, light weight for walking and fits in a cart really well. But I do love the Voyage which was the precursor to the 4 series I guess.

Hoofer 3 was amazing and the pockets were great but it was a bit on the heavy side.

J-Bag was a big winner too. The mesh pocket near the bottom was a great idea for larger water bottles and it was just the right balance between weight and size for walking and riding.

I think we can all agree that the Ping Hoofer Xtreme was a dud with that retractable strap that looked super goofy.

I don't have any experience with their cart bags but please weigh in on your experiences!

I voted cart bag. My Pioneer has everything I need for riding or Clic Gear 3.5 which is most of my rounds... . I also have Hoofer 14 way for walking quick 9 (or more) and it's perfect for that....  There is some club tangle with the 14 but it doesn't really bother me as I usually only have 7 - 8 clubs when using it......

I think the Hoofer 2 is the Best of All time. Great classic bag, it is still a great bag.

OG Hoofer. Iconic, and for good reason. It really was/is a spectacular bag. The straps are perfect; you can backpack it or carry it single shoulder like a looper. Plenty of room but not too much to be heavy.

Perfect

The L8 was also an awesome bag, just a tiny bit too small to compete with the Hoofer.

I think you need to add a choice for the Hoofer 14 because the standard Hoofer only has a 5 way divider.

The original Hoofer was the GOAT. Had it in college and for several years afterwards but basically shifted to SunMountain/Titleist water proof bags when I moved to Portland. PIng's waterproof bags couldn't hold a candle to the SM/TItleist StaDry bags unfortunately.

EDIT: When I said original Hoofer, I did mean the ones from the 80-90s like this one: https://www.ebay.com...KIAAOSw22lZ0rIA

I have been wanting a Hoofer bag for a while as I never really got along well with my Callaway Chev bag. Finally found a deal I couldnt pass up and snagged a Limited Edition Digital Camo for $145. I was a little hesitant to get a camo, as I always felt they looked odd on the course, but the colorway on this one is really slick. Doesnít look cartoony, and truly looks like a salute to military. Plus it looks like the most durable color I could find. The cool US Flag morale patch was a nice touch. Looking forward to getting years of use out of it. I finally have enough pockets and a strap system that I donít have to fight.4F4797BE-24EB-47CB-874F-BB7D1AB8DFB6.jpeg F4AC476A-BE49-4150-862D-83C48080882C.jpeg

I just picked up 2016 4 series and it's a wonderful bag.  Overall it's light, roomy, great shoulder strap systems, plenty of storage and minimal club tangle.

Have had most of the carry bag models, used the Hoofer 2 and J bag as our team bags while in college, for me the J bag was probably my all time favorite. Good weight but lots of pocket options.

I love PING carry bags, the strap system is just the best ever!

Currently using an all white 2017 4 Series and absolutely loving it

I also still have an immaculate condition all black J-Bag in the attic that I love but have lost the rain good so it’s relegated to back up bag right now

Wish I could find a new hood for it and I’d bring it out of retirement

Traverse Cart Bag.

I like my Traverse cart bag, it's just the right size and weight for a push cart.  The Pioneer is a great bag, but just a bit too big IMO.  The OG Hoofer is iconic.  But that camo hoofer is crazy cool tho, it has molle on the bottom pocket!  You can swap a back up holster from your chest rig onto it for courses in disruptive environments.

I currently carry the newest Hoofer. However, I prefer the Hoofer circa 2006ish. For me it's a more comfortable bag to carry.
