2Five Golf Bag Reviews

The Sun Mountain 2Five lightweight golf bag continues to receives positive reviews from the golf media.

Weighing only 2.5 pounds, it’s the lightest full-featured golf bag on the market. To put 2.5 pounds into perspective, that’s about the same weight as two wedges, or a pair of golf shoes, or three cans of a soft-drink. When you lift up the 2Five, it’s more like lifting off as the bag seems to launch off the ground.

The bag is made up of carbon fiber legs, lightweight nylonfabric, and high density foam, while featuring a comfortable X-Strap Dual Strap System. The 2Five doesn’t skimp on conveniences, either, offering four pockets including a full-length clothing pocket, velour-lined valuables pocket, water bottle pouch, and ball and accessory pocket.

Along with winning the Golf Digest Editors’ Choice for best lightweight golf bag, it also won the best Sunday bag (and it’s not even a Sunday bag, it’s just as light as one) in the yearly awards by MyGolfSpy.com.

Below are two mentions of the bag in June issues of Golf magazine and Golfweek.

Golf Push Carts are Gaining Popularity with Young Golfers

Sun Mountain’s Speed Cart V1 Sport was mentioned in Golfweek’s story about the rise of interst in  golf push carts  by youth and college golfers.

The article said, “Not so long ago, golf carts were almost more of a hassle than carrying your clubs. They offered no storage, tipped over on slopes, and would have to be dragged across the course on two wobbly wheels. Worst of all, they didn’t look cool. But thanks to recent upgrades and innovation, push carts are finally making their mark in the golf world, especially in millennials.”V1_Speed_Cart

The newest version of Sun Mountain’s category-changing Speed Cart® golf push cart, the V1 Sport, combines the most popular features of past Speed Cart models with new colors and graphics plus it folds and unfolds easier than ever, has an improved brake system, and mag wheels.

When folded, the Combo cart fits into a car trunk flat, and can also be stored vertically in a clubroom; occupying about half of the space of a separate cart and bag.

When on the course, Combo offers the added bonus of a built-in seat that stores flat to the bag when not in use and then folds down for a secure and comfortable seat including a back pad.

MC3 Micro-Cart is Sun Mountain’s newest entry into the four wheel golf push cart market. MC3 is compact and lightweight, folds in two simple steps and has a small folded footprint so it’s easy to pack in and out of your car.

The MC3 is light at just under 17 lbs., the four wheels come standard with low maintenance solid foam tires and the front axle is adjustable, so the space between the front wheels can be widened to accommodate larger golf bags. MC3 folded size is 26.5″ X 14.5″ X 13.5″.

2Five Ready for Lift-Off

The new Sun Mountain 2Five golf bag is now shipping. 2Five is the lightest, full-featured golf bag on the market weighing in at the scant two and a half pounds. We were able to keep the weight so low thanks to the use of ultra-lightweight and durable fabrics like those used in mountaineering tents, carbon-fiber legs, and high strength-to-weight plastics. 2Five is available in 11 different colors at $219.99.

To put 2 ½ lbs. into perspective, that’s about the same weight as 3 cans of the beverage of your choice, or 2 wedges, or a pair of golf shoes. When you lift up the 2Five, it’s more like lifting off as the bag seems to launch off the ground.

As one might imagine, building the lightest weight, full-featured golf stand bag on the market requires meticulous attention to detail. Some of these details on 2Five are:

• ultra-lightweight and durable 70 denier fabrics like those used in outdoor equipment applications such as mountaineering tents
• super light, highly durable carbon fiber legs instead of the normal aluminum legs
• high strength-to-weight plastic top and bottom

Golf Push Cart versus Pull Carts

The question: “What is the difference between a golf push cart and a golf pull cart?” came up in a discussion the other day. Once recovered from the ‘really?!’ look of surprise it was decided that maybe others had this question, too.

So, golf push cart vs golf pull cart. One obvious difference is that a push cart is pushed and, you guessed it, a pull cart is pulled. The biggest difference in the products is the number of wheels. The traditional pull cart, or trolley as they’re called in the UK, is a two-wheeled cart used to carry one’s golf clubs around the course. Golf push carts added an extra wheel to allow it to be pushed, and then later generations sometimes added a fourth wheel.

The purpose is the same, to carry the weight of the clubs so the golfer doesn’t have to.

The two-wheeled pull carts were the only option for decades. In the 1990’s the founder and owner of Sun Mountain Sports, Rick Reimers, saw someone jogging with a baby in a three-wheeled jog stroller and thought, “I wonder how that would work for golf?”

Well, it worked quite well as a matter of fact. Pushing is way easier than pulling and is less taxing on the shoulder muscles, muscles better used on the swing than on pulling a cart.

ClubGlider Technology Expands to Luggage

ClubGlider® revolutionized the golf travel bag with the introduction of extendable legs that support all of the weight. That same technology is now being applied to a line of wheeled-luggage that includes a suitcase and a carry-on. ClubGlider Suitcase offers the same ease of use as the golf travel bag thanks to the extendable leg that supports 100% of the weight and then simply retracts away for travel. The suitcase is constructed with the same highly durable, ballistic-style nylon as the ClubGlider Meridian golf travel bag. The ClubGlider Carry-On coordinates with the suitcase and is sized to fit in airplane overhead bins. Both pieces are available now at $349.99 for the suitcase and $239.99 for the carry-on.
