Aficionado IV, light weighted stand bag introduced
August 27, 2008 (USA)
The Legendary Aficionado stand bag now on it’s fourth generation, continues the tradition of function and durability, while weighing in under 5 pounds. West Coast Trends Inc, makers of the Club Glove, the Number One travel bag in golf, today announced that it has introduced the Aficionado IV, making claim to the lightest, strongest full-size stand bag on the market today.
“PGA TOUR Partners members tested and rated the Aficionado III with the highest score in its history for stand bags and we feel we’ve outdone it with the Aficionado IV,” said Jeff Herold, President, West Coast Trends, Inc. “We’ve added new contoured lines and a more fashionable appearance while still maintaining the function you would expect from a Club Glove product.”
According to Herold, the Aficionado IV is not a scaled down version of a full-size bag like many of the ultra-light “micro-bags” on the market today. “Our bags feature full-size tops, roomy pockets, a patented leg stand and patented modular dual strap. These features combined with other conveniences such as an actual working lumbar pad and removable shoulder mold pads make this one of the most comfortable walking bags available. Numerous Tour Players use the bag for personal play and Gil Morgan actually uses this bag in tournament play on the Champions Tour.”
In the Aficionado tradition, there’s a pocket for everything including your cell phone, water bottle and valuables. With eight pockets and a water bottle holder, we feel there is enough storage for anything you may need on the course. This is a bag that’s roomy enough for any golf excursion anywhere in the world. A patented removable personalization panel makes it easy to customize the bag for tournaments or gifts.
A custom version of the Aficionado IV is also available. Jeff Herold will personally design a custom bag in the colors of your choice and with embroidery options not available anywhere in the industry.
The Aficionado IV is constructed with 210 nylon fabric which is extremely lightweight and durable.
