Rover bag quick take.
Pros:
* 2+ lbs lighter than Utility bag.
* holds 14 clubs easily with no grabbing
* has all the pockets of the utility bag meaning: we can be ocd in organizing our stuff. Range tokens in this pocket, wallet/keys here, balls here, tees ...well just don't load it up or you may defeat the purpose.
* double straps are comfy, easy carry.
* looks great.
* always positive comments on all my Jones bags and this one is no exception.

Cons:
* being so purdy with no legs, I hate to lay this one down.  A classic like the players series is meant to hit the ground. This one I found myself at times wanting to prop it up on something.
* you can easily overload it
* made me wish that my Greyson Utility bag was this light ( guess that'd be a SM2.5+ but they are so homely IMHO)

If you don't mind carrying a light, good looking modern bag, I would not hesitate to get one!

awesome, thanks for the review. Do you find yourself using the two straps apposed to just single strapping it?
After using my players series it took a few holes before I realized I had two straps :-).  The bag footprint and straps are similar to my utility bag ( which is obviously heavier) so, to have all those features built into the Rover was pleasant as I really like my Utility bag but appreciate less weight.

ahh just need to sell my extra putter and my bag so I can get one.. was hoping for a 4th of July sale but that sadly didn't happen. Post some updates as you feel because I think you're the only one on the site with one!

Is the bag rigid or does it slouch? Tangle?

Semi-rigid, a bit of slouching but not bothersome. Tangle is non existent with 14 clubs when compared to the Utility bag or ping.
