    Sun Mountain Golf Bags Rise to the Top of the Golf Bag Charts

    7 November 2015 No comments

    According to Golf Datatech, Sun Mountain is the #1 golf bag company in the UK so it stands to reason that many of the best selling golf bags for 2015 / 2016 are Sun Mountain bags.

    Golf Datatech’s ranking is based upon the quantifiable factor of sales. Golf Digest Hot List, on the other hand, is a more subjective, qualitative ranking based upon the expert opinions of a panel of highly regarded golf equipment writers.

    Some of the top rated golf bags for 2015 recently recognized on the Hot List include the Sun Mountain Three 5, H2NO waterproof and Front 9 golf carry bags, the C-130golf cart bag, and the XCR hybrid golf bag.

    Every year since 2007 the Hot List has recognized the Sun Mountain C-130 as a best golf cart bag. Recent award winners are the C-130 cart bag with 14 individual club dividers and the new C-130 7-way with just seven club dividers. Both models offer sturdy top handles for ease in picking up the bag and forward-facing pockets so all pockets are accessible when on the cart. C-130 also offers a hidden cart-strap channel tunnel so the cart strap goes through the bag and behind the pockets instead of crushing or blocking access to the pockets. Some prefer 14-way tops, some don’t. Now both options are available. As well as a C-130 model with a stand for cart-golfers who like a stand bag for the practice range.

    Several Sun Mountain bags were recognized as the best golf carry / stand bags. The ultra-lightweight Front 9 carry bag has made the Hot List the last two years. Golf Digest said, “This small bag earns high marks for performing big. The top is flared to make it easier to pull clubs out and put them back.”

    Along with the C-130 cart bag, the Sun Mountain Three 5 carry bag has been a regular on the top-sellers list and in the Hot List. For the 2016 Three 5 the writers at Golf Digest said, “The increased mobility of the strap allows you to put it on and take it off with ease. The top of this light bag was also updated: there’s a slight flare at the top to make it easier to put clubs in.”

    Sun Mountain’s line of waterproof H2NO golf bags remains popular as well. Long the top-selling bag in Europe, more and more Americans are appreciating the benefit of having a waterproof golf bag. The H2NO Lite was awarded Hot List Gold, there is also a H2NO Lite with a 14-way top and a cart bag model. For even lighter weight, try the H2NO Ultra Lite.

    XCR is a new bag for 2016. Much like the C-130 S, XCR is a cart bag with legs. As Golf Digest said, “So you like to ride in a cart, but you still want to be able to take your bag to the range without it falling down. The solution: a cart bag with a stand. This bag is built to fit in your cart, but it has a stand, too. “

    Mizuno MP-25 Golf Irons - Mizuno Review

    By Aslan Golf 3 November 2015 No comments

    The New Mizuno MP-25 Irons are infused with Boron Steel allowing greater ball speeds and more strength and depth to the forging art.

    Mizuno have consistantly used Grain Flow Forging as its process to produce the purest forging of steel possible in Golf Club Design.

    Now, Mizuno has taken this process and further enhanced the Forging process by using 1025 Boron steel utilising its High End finish and Alloying Properties.

    So what do we get for our money?

    Sun Mountain 2016 2Five Stand Bag

    By Aslan Golf 31 October 2015 No comments

    The new Sun Mountain 2Five golf bag is coming soon to Aslan Golf. 2Five is the lightest, full-featured golf bag on the market weighing in at the scant two and a half pounds. Sun Mountain 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.

    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
