REVIEW: Jones Golf Utility Trouper Stand Bag
The second major upgrade to the Jones Golf Utility Trouper Bag is the top dividers. The bag is now more oval shaped at the top and has 5 slots instead of 2. This for me is just about the best divider system for simple carry bags. While 14 way tops might still be easiest, this is the next best, especially when trying to reduce weight and keep the overall size of the bag down. The top well is for the putter, the next wide well is for the woods, the next two which each are half the width of the bag hold the irons divided long and short, and the final well holds the wedges. These dividers are large enough so that clubs come out easily and yet compact enough to keep the bag small and not too much extra space for clubs to slide around.
The third major change to the Jones Golf Utility Trouper Bag is the stand system. The legs are now much thinner (which means lighter) and the mechanism is now a foot pad rather than internal. While I liked the looks of the internal stand system where the entire base of the bag tilts, the new external tab system is as easy at it gets to set the bag down. It takes almost no pressure to engage the legs for the bag to stand on its own. I don’t know if there will be long term durability issues with this, but from an on and off my back to the ground, these legs are much easier to use and retract than the Utility Bag.
