Are you a golfer who likes to carry their bag? Do you scoff at players racing their electric trollies down the fairway? Do you often defend golf against people who believe it is not a sport? If so, then Wilson Staff may have designed the bag for you.
The Wilson Staff NeXus bag brings an innovative, lightweight design to the stand bag for avid golfers who prefer to carry their equipment round the course.
The key feature of the NeXus is the modern Exo-Frame. The lightweight, aluminium frame is built independently from the bag and with its "360° integrated mechanism", it is easy to operate, durable and sits your bag flat on the ground. Whilst the frame is constructed separately from the bag, golfers will not be able to remove the bag from the frame. We thought the same thing!
Unlike other bags that tilt forwards when placed on the ground, the NeXus base sits flat on the fairway (or rough!). As well as being easier to use, the design is also less impacted by wind. By sitting flat on the ground, it has more contact with the ground and less area to be impacted by wind, so whilst your game might collapse in the wind, your bag won't.
“Thanks to the smooth and quick stand activation, helped by the innovative frame design, the neXus provides golfers with an easy and effortless carrying experience,” said Jean-Pierre Degembe, Wilson Golf’s Global Director of Softgoods.
“The biggest advantage is how stable the integrated structure is and how light the overall bag is. Golfers will never have the problem of the stand giving way when putting it down and once the bag and frame are connected, it’s hard to believe they’re two different components,” added Degembe.
Whilst the Exo-Frame takes the attention, the rest of bag is packed with features and performance designed to suit the modern golfer.
The entire bag weighs less than 5 lbs or just 2.2kg. All the materials, and especially the aluminium frame, make the bag extremely lightweight and easy to carry around the course. Should you wish to put the NeXus on a trolley or buggy the prominent TPR, or Thermo Plastic Rubber, handles atop and on the spine of the bag make it easy to lift or move.
As you know a carry bag needs to be more than just easy to carry. That is Wilson have paid extra attention to offer pockets and functionality within the bag to suit the modern golfer.
The Wilson Staff NeXus features a total of six pockets and two pouches, positioned to offer refuge to whatever equipment and supplies you may carry on the course. Three pockets on the front of the bag give you space for clothing and waterproofs, a small pocket for scorecards etc and even a heat-sealed water-resistant valuables compartment.
The NeXus even features a Velcro pad near the top of the bag (see image above) where you can easily attach your glove between shots or whilst you putt.
The lower portion and backside of the NeXus features pockets for balls, tees etc as well as GPS/range finder sleeve and an insulated beverage pocket to keep drinks cool.
Wilson Staff offer the NeXus in four new and striking colour combinations - an FG Tour inspired black with gold trim, blue with red trim, red with white trim and white with orange trimming. All four bags are in shops from today and available with a RRP of £119.
