as a caddy, i do not have fond memories of caddying for golfers with
"tubes" in their bags- i suggest getting a sturdier bag and limiting
the # of clubs you carry.
those tubes suck. they get all "tangled" too. also, when you're putting
a club into your back, you've got to search for an empty tube instead of
just tossing the club in there. i had the worst bag made. it was a
spalding with those tubes and those tubes connected to holes in the
top of the bag. needless to say, the tubes came loose from the holes
in the top of bag. i had to wiggle the bag around to get the tube lined
up with the hole again to put my club back in the bag. i finally had
to cut the side of the bag open so that i could get "inside" the bag
to remove the stupid tubes.

I did buy anew bag with 6 "sections" instaed of the 3 that I initially
had. I have found that this works about ten times better, so if you only
have 3 sections, i would suggest getting something that can divide them
into 6 sections instead.
the tubes do pop up once in a while, but they do make life
easier. makes it very easy to count your clubs if you worry
about losing them like i do...
I see folks spend minutes looking for the club they just used on the
last hole. What section is it in??? Shake, rattle, & roll!!! While
others are trying to hit. (Any chance they'd do that on purpose?
I now have a Taylor Made bag with the putter compartment and five areas
for clubs. If I could find a bag that used tubes that did not mar my
graphite shafts I'd switch in a NY minute.
I hate the way the grips of the clubs become entangled even with 5
compartments. Select one club; get many. Not to mention the damage to
To each there is a season......
Not that tubes matter very much in the overall scheme
of golf....we're wallowing in minutia.
They'd be looking for a REALLY big tip too...

Steve Stricker used plastic tubes until this year. He was playing at a course
that I play some times, and he was paired with me and two of my friends. His
bag had tubes.

Useless. You'll fight with 'em every time you go to pull out a club.
Buy a bag in which the dividers go all the way to the bottom. Problem
If you have graphite shafts DON'T USE TUBES. They will ruin the finish
on the shaft. It takes the paint right off. I have 2 bags. One is a
small carry bag and the other is a 10" diameter staff bag. I find that
the small bag does tangle the clubs. But this doesn't happen with the

Waste of time......
I disagree. I use them to separate my irons and it works fine. The
woods and the putter fit in one section of the bag, and are easy to
find/remove without tubes. If you don't wish to buy a new bag or one of
those "caps" with the holes that fits in the top of the bag, tubes might
be the way to go.
I keep on speaking of the unattainable earth.

How much does your bag weigh now???????
Tubes don't weigh that much, I worked in a sporting goods store at one time
and we got shipment of tubes in boxes of 50 and the total weight was like 20

I used to have graphite shafts, now I don't.
I've been using tubes for a long time now. They work very well because
I can keep them sorted and they don't get tangled up. I also use
tube-connectors which keeps them in groups of four, so they don't slide
around. Caution: graphite shafts will not like tubes, they will wear
off very quickly on the edges of the plastic. I found this out the hard
way and had to replace 6 club shafts when the heads kept falling off.
Also, head covers for woods do not fit into the tubes, so some clubs
will not go all the way down.
Hope this helps!
