Taylor Made launch two new golf bags

3.22pm 13th July 2000 - Corporate

At 4.6 pounds, the new Helium bag is Taylor Made’s lightest bag ever, and weighs in at 25% lighter than the average carry bag on the market. Designed to reduce fatigue, the Helium bag incorporates a variety of weight-saving components. These include the 70-denier “rip-stop” nylon, which is the same durable fabric used in outdoor packs and tents, and also the cored-out aluminium legs with I-Beam construction.

The Helium bag, however, is not just lighter than the average carry-bag. It is also built to provide superior comfort, with its ergonomic lumbar support and its symmetrically balanced Izzo® double strap carry system.

“Any golfer who carries their bag will appreciate the lighter weight of the Helium bag, because it reduces strain on the back and shoulders, enabling them to concentrate on playing better golf,” said Ryan Lauder, European Product Manager for Taylor Made-adidas Golf

Taylor Made has answered the needs of over 50 per cent of the UK golfers with the introduction of the ultimate trolley bag – the new Vor-Tech Bag. Engineered to fit most trolleys, the Vor-Tech is designed with a V-shape top, allowing it to sit comfortably and securely on the trolley cradle. All the pockets on the Vor-Tech are accessible from the front.

Spacious ball, tee and clothing compartments are designed to enable the golfer to carry the maximum amount of accessories, whilst maintaining an ease of access system and optimal weight displacement through the unique bag design.

Access to the pockets, however, is not the only concern that trolley users have. Finding the right club is also a factor, particularly with the putter that often gets hidden underneath other clubs. Taylor Made claims to have addressed this problem by dividing the club-well into six main sections, with a seventh, patented putter-well, exclusively designed for holding putters.

“The Vor-Tech will have great appeal to the majority of club golfers that pull a trolley and are interested in maximum comfort and convenience”, said Robin Gibson, Taylor Made – adidas Golf’s European marketing manager. “It is the ultimate in organisation.”
