Bag Boy Makes Travel Easier
BY JOHN STEINBREDER
Those of us who take our golf games on the
road know that travel bags are essential pieces
of equipment. Protecting our metals and irons,
our wedges and putters is a big part of their
job. But they must also be easy to tote around
airports, hotels and rental car parking lots.
The folks at Bag Boy, which was founded in
1946 and is known for designing, manufacturing and distributing lines of golf bags, push
carts and travel covers, are now trying to meet
the needs of peripatetic players with its T-2000
travel cover. Released earlier this year, it features a patent-pending Pivot Grip handle that
rotates 360 degrees.
“Our testing shows that the Pivot Grip sig-
nificantly reduces strain on the arm and wrist
as compared to travel covers with traditional
handles,” says Craig Ramsbottom, president of
the golf division for Dynamic Brands, the Rich-
mond, Va.-based company that owns Bag Boy.
He also points out that the technology of the
T-2000 makes it possible to change directions
while lugging the bag without ever having to let go of it. The ergonomic Pivot Grip is built into the top of the T-2000, which is made of 1680D nylon and includes a wraparound padded top and a PVC back with an extended ABS base designed to provide maximum club protection. In addition, the bag boasts two oversized gar- ment pockets, a shoe pocket, dual lift handles, a wraparound main zipper that locks and an inter- nal compression strap to stabilize the bag during travel. A set of in-line skate wheels is geared to make the T-2000 roll smoothly and quietly, and the cover is made to fit a 48-inch driver. Available in three colors – red/black, silver/ black and royal/black – the Bag Boy T-2000 comes with a one-year warranty. l
