So I've narrowed down my choice to these two bags.  I know there was another thread like this before but it was a few years ago and I'd like some updated opinions.  I already have a stand bag that I use when I'm riding w/ a cart, so this is just for walking and at the range.  I have an Ogio Grom stand bag now and while I like the looks of it, the materials and the pockets, I really don't like stand bags w/ 14-way dividers.  The clubs seem to always get jammed up.  So which one do you guys prefer?  Which one is easier to get your clubs in and out of?  I like the pockets more on the Hoofer but the Titleist seems to have more room for the clubs.  Thanks for the responses!

I've had the hoofer for 2 months and chose it over the titleist cause I like the strap to be used easier as an individual OR dual. I think the titleist would be better for carts and getting clubs in and out. The hoofer, despite the full length dividers, still has the clubs get stuck going in and out.

This is easily one of my favorite things about the Hoofer.  I love this for making the long walk from the parking lot to the pro shop or from the cart to the range haha.  I don't walk nearly as much as I would like but it is also nice to comfortably walk using the single strap.

Full disclosure, I have almost exclusively played Titleist clubs yet for the past 9 years I have only used Ping bags.  I somewhat have a little experience with both bags since my dad uses a Taylor Made bag that is very similar to the Titleist one pictured (both made by Sun Mountain).  There are a few things I don't like about his bag.  The strap on his droops down and hangs from the side while my Ping bag's right shoulder strap retracts and is easy to grab after a shot.  I have also found the straps on his to be a little less comfortable and that the back plate doesn't add a whole lot in terms of comfort.  Another thing I strongly dislike is the legs.  On the Titleist bag the legs are dead straight vs the Ping's have a slight angle to them.  When the legs are out on both of our bags, his reach out considerably further.

Some of that is just me nit picking.  I think they are both great bags and you cannot go wrong with either one.  I just like some of the smaller features of the Ping bags more.

thanks for the responses, good points I didn't consider.  I'm not too familiar with the strap system on the Hoofer but it sounds like I need to check that out closer before buying either of the two.  also. I do like the slight angle of the ping legs that keep it more compact.  

Anyone out there use the Titleist bag and is there enough room for 14 clubs without getting all jammed up?

Since this bag is for walking I vote neither. I'd start with the Ping 4 Under or something lighter. Every pound shed feels like ten pounds half way through your round.

This thread is hilarious because I too am looking at both of these bags and I have a Ogio Grom as well I want to replace.  I use a ClicGear so I am leaning toward the Titleist since it fits the Clicgear better.

I don't walk with 14 but I bring at least that many to the range and I've had no problems.  The best thing about the titleist/sun mountain bags is that the dividers are sewn to the sides of the bag, so clubs can't sneak around the side and tangle with other sections.  I like the  ping straps more but the titleist dividers won me over.

I have both bags.  They are both great.  I like the TItleist better overall.  The Ping seems to have slightly better quality and might be better looking.  but the titleist has a bigger top which is easier to get the clubs in and out.  The Titleist fits better on my clicgear 3.0 although I walk and push and ride depending on how I feel that day.

The Ping might have better pockets.  The Titleist has a 10000x better strap system. The Ping X Strap sucks.  Gets crossed up and its a pain in the a** to fix.

My Dream bag would be the titleist lightweight 14 way bag with the lightweight (4 way) bag straps.

thanks for the input.  just from looking at the Hoofer at Golf Galaxy the straps look horrible, like they would tangle like you mentioned.  but then there's all these people saying they like the hoofer straps better than the Titleist which is weird.

It seems like the Titleist is the way to go as far as the dividers go.  I'd go with the Ping if the top was bigger, but it just seems too small.  I think either one is going to work out and I'd be happy with both...

Hoofer is amazing for walking, straps are fine for me. I could see the hoofer not being great for a cart as the base isn't as round as most bags.

Once you get used to the Ping straps, they are great. I've had a Hoofer for about 10 years now and am ready for a new bag. It is definitely going to be a new Hoofer.

I use my Hoofer on my Clicgear. The only issue is minor -- the bag wants to rotate a little even while locked onto the cart.  The black Hoofer strap material fades, and the outside leg has an issue with getting caught on the big pocket when picking the bag up if you don't grab it in just a certain way.

anyone have any experiences with the Ogio Woode system?  It seems like it would be the best of all as far as dividers go.  Plus I can get an older model Grom on eBay for about $60.  Problem with the Grom is it's heavy as **** and I'm pretty sure the legs are terrible...

I've used Ping since my first Hoofer. What makes the X-Straps so difficult to use? I see people say this all the time but come on, they are retractable where the right arm strap is retracted, you pick it up by putting your arm through it and putting it on like a backpack from there....

They get tangled perhaps once a round for me, I'll pull the retractable strap, loop the left strap either under or over, and at fixed. I mean if it is tangled more than once what did you tumble down a hill or something?

I have a 2012 Lightweight I bought from my Alma Matter bookstore but its more of a garage queen, I walk 90% of my rounds and I use my Ping.

I've used ping bags now for over 12 years and as time goes on they have gotten better.  Now currently use the Hoofer C3 which I love.  The placement of the pockets is great and a slight bend of the legs is far better than previous ping bags.  After a few weeks you will get used to the strap system.

Ping bags are the most durable on the market in my experience.  I have like 5 hoofers.  I bought an Ogio Sprint last year due to the weight and the double strap - shock absorbing neoprene straps.  The straps are elastic that kinda of bounce with you when you walk to reduce shock.  I don't think the bag will last that long but it's been a nice little find.

I love the durability and quality of Ping bags, I'm currently on the same Hoofer 2 I've been using since 2003, and it's seen lots of course time since then. High quality materials and the leg system is better than most around. That being said I'm in the market currently for a new bag and haven't considered the new Ping bags due to their looks. I can't quite put my finger on it, but there's something about the new styling that doesn't look right to me. I know it's the worst reason out there, but to me a bag is a bag and if I'm getting a new one I want something that looks good to my eye.

Once they switched from the Hoofer Vantage line to the C1 line I just lost total interest in the bag due to its looks.  As soon as the brought out the C1 I bought an older model Vantage in White/White to have as a backup.

I have the Ozone with the same Woode system. It is the absolute best. I have individual wells for my putter, drive, 4 wood, hybrid and sand wedge (which is what I chip with, so it gets its own slot). The irons then go 3 each in the three larger wells. To me, this is vastly superior to a 14-way divider or something like a 5 or 6 way divider.

Both are great bags. Just bought the new hoofer after 2 years with the titleist. The hoofer seems to fit better in the cart for me. I haven't had the chance to walk a round with it yet however. I haven't had any problems with clubs getting stuck with the hoofer either. The titleist bag didn't last as long as I would have expected as it got a couple rips and the color really faded fast. I don't think you can go wrong with either bag though.

My Ogio Sprint has it.  It's pretty nice, not going to lie.  I like the looks of Hoofers 10x better, but you can't knock Ogio performance.

I chose the 2013 hoofer over the titleist because of the lack of split dual straps. Even as far as contacting sun mountain and seeing if I could buy the split straps separately. I chose the hoofer over the 4- series because my father and I both have mid size golf pride VDR grips on all our clubs and he has trouble with space in the bag and grips getting stuck on each other.

I might be the perfect person to ask about this topic since I've used both bags this year. I started with the Titleist Bag which was stolen out of my car - and I replaced it with the Ping Hoofer. After using both bags, I would say there are pro's and con's to both.  I found the Titleist bag to have a slightly more comfortable carry strap system out of the box. I had to fiddle with the Ping bag quite a bit to get it to fit right, but it works just fine now. I rarely encountered club tangling with the Titleist bag, but with the Ping, it's fairly common because of the 6-way compartment instead of the 14-way Titleist offers. That being said, it doesnt really bother me much and it's much easier to get the clubs in and out when the bag is sitting upright. When you have the stand deployed, for some reason the clubs tangle easier going in and coming out. Overall I prefer the design of the ping bag. It has more pockets, the drink compartment is better designed, and the small things like zipper pulls are easier to grab.  I would score the Titleist bag an 8.5 and the Ping bag a 9+.

I have used a Titleist Japanese carry bag for the past four years.  I recently replaced it with a 2013 Hoofer.  I walk and ride.  The Hoofer works well for both purposes.  I find the straps comfortable.  While I wish there was another divider in the bag, I really have had little trouble pulling or replacing clubs in it.  The Hoofer has a lower, trimmer profile than the Titleist, which I prefer.
