All major brands have their Aisa-spec (Japan spec for you). In here you can only play golf with caddie+cart. A bit annoying to have these huge bags. I can't fit the bag in the backseat of my 911.

Why must people worry about what someone else is doing? If they want to spend THEIR money on a huge staff bag, with THEIR name embroidered on it, then I say that is THEIR business.

Only reason to have one is its bigger, so no cramming your clubs in then you have a smaller bag. Cart bags are far more functional (tho I hate the C-130 just as much as staff bags) and often have far more pockets.

Wasn't a great golfer himself but did not bother me a bit what kind of bag he had.
I am just busy to get up and down most of times so don't really care what others have as their bag.
However I pay attention to people with different putters and their putting strokes!

But seriously, it's their money, their clubs, their back. They can go into a store and buy whatever they please. It's not like they need a license or certification to get a golf bag. It has no bearing on anyone else's game.
If I knew that I was playing against someone who was bothered by amateurs with staff bags, I'd be hauling the biggest baddest staff bag I could find. I'd probably also throw on a white belt, break out the blades and covers, and iron a few logos onto my shirt and hat. I might even get a caddy and make him wear my name.

Seriously - I have a Callaway staff bag and used it for a long time, but I got tired of carrying the thing around. I love the bag, though, and I got it very near cost, so it was cheaper than any carry bag I could've gotten. I can't imagine why anyone would have a problem with what I use.
As for belts - what's wrong with having a little fun? My buddies and I play for the same goal - even if we have the worst rounds of our lives, we at least want to LOOK like we shot par. It's OK to have a little fun once in a while.

LOL, i started one of the threads stating how much it bugged me that a buddy was carrying a staff bag around. Fast forward to today and I could care less. More power to him. I even have a staff bag now, but she hasn't seen the course yet. I just store my extra putters in it.

Others equipment choices are not my business. But if I see something nice I'll
pass along a compliment. Everyone enjoys a positive comment about their equipment.
I'd had some nice rounds with complete strangers that started out with me offering a
nice comment about something they have. I have always found golfers to be the
friendliest sort of people. Camaraderie is part of the game for me.
"Indifferent" people are not usually good company. And judging by what I read on here
Most WXRERs are not indifferent, but rather extroverted when it comes to all things
equipment. Look at all the signatures and WITB picture threads. I don't buy that people
don't care what others might have. It's just that good manners keep us from being
negative about other golfers choices.
Sorry for the threadjack.

Not sure we can start a thread that "eveyone" cares about, but there must be those who care about this one which is apparent by the fact that there are responses. Strangely enough, there even seem to be responses from people who dont care. Not sure I understand that.

WHY DO YOU CARE IF SOMEONE _____________________?
a) plays blades and has a 12 Hdcp
b) carries a staff bag and shoots in the 90's
c) has a circle T putter
d) has "tour issue" equipment
fill in the blank with your ridiculous example.
Get over it. If we all did everything like you do, used your accepted clubs, etc., it would be one BORING world.
