C130 Gunmetal Gray FlashBest-Selling Golf Cart Bag Gets Even Better

Missoula, Montana – The Sun Mountain C-130 continues as the company’s best-selling golf cart bag. The 2017 C-130 offers the abundance of pocket space and golfer-friendly features that have kept it in the top spot for eight years plus some new features such as Smart Straps that offer a new way to secure the bag to a golf cart, more velour-lined valuable pockets and an easy-access range finder pocket. The 2017 C-130 will be available on-line and in stores in August at a suggested retail price of $229.99. For the nearest Sun Mountain retailer call 800-227-9224 or visit www.sunmountain.com.

What helped the C-130 become the best-selling golf cart bag is being designed to work optimally on a riding cart. All pockets and zippers are accessible when the bag is on a cart and the reverse oriented top positions the short irons in the front and driver and woods in the back, so you don’t need to reach over a driver to get to a wedge.

unnamedWhat has kept the C-130 at the top is continual improvement. New for 2017 is a Smart Strap system offering two Velcro® straps to secure the bag to the cart and eliminate the need for the traditional cart strap. The challenge with the traditional cart strap is that, if left too loose, the bag can twist sideways and if tightened too tight, the strap can restrict club access. The Smart Straps will keep the bag from twisting while still offering full and easy club and pocket access.

Also new for 2017 is range finder pocket positioned at the top of the bag for easy access and three velour-lined valuables pockets, one offering protection from rain.

By the numbers, C-130 offers a 10.5” diameter, 14-way top with full-length individual club-dividers plus an integrated putter well. For pockets, C-130 offers ten pockets: two full-length clothing pockets; a cooler pocket; three velour-lined valuables pockets, one is water resistant; an easy access range finder pocket; plus several ball and accessories pockets. Other cart-friendly features on the C-130 include the three handles integrated into the top that offer multiple hand-holds for picking the bag up to take on and off of the cart.

For 2017, C-130 is available in 11 different colors ranging from the standard Black to the head-turning Gunmetal-Gray-Flash.

Additional models of the C-130 available in 2017 are the C-130 5-way offering a top with five club dividers instead of 14 and the C-130S stand bag version.

Lamkin Introduces Z5 Grips

Five scientifically engineered zones provide functional playing advantage

(SAN DIEGO, CA) – Lamkin Corporation – the original manufacturer of premium golf grips – introduces Z5, the most advanced multi-compound grip on the market with five distinct zones that feature texture and color technology designed to deliver the perfect grip for maximum control, comfort and consistency with every swing.

Each zone of the Z5 is uniquely designed for a specific performance-enhancing function. The horizontal pattern and soft cord weave under the upper hand augments grip stability and traction, while a shallow micro texture at the bottom improves feel and comfort for the lower hand. Carefully designed color patterns and a simulated rope texture in the middle zone promote proper hand pressure and placement, creating a fluid backswing to better position the club head for increased speed, distance and control.

“This is the most advanced grip Lamkin has ever produced, as our team of engineers scientifically broke down the key characteristics required to properly support the top and bottom hands during the swing,” says Bob Lamkin, President and CEO of Lamkin. “We developed unique patterns, compounds, and textures for the Z5 that enhance feel and incorporate alignment aides to increase confidence and consistency on every shot.”

The high-performance Z5 grips are made from a proprietary rubber compound that ensures maximum durability, feedback and torsion control while making the grip an excellent choice for all-weather playability. The functions of the five zones include:

• Zones 1 and 2 consist of a soft cord weave designed to provide the top hand with exceptional traction, enhanced comfort and slip-free confidence in all weather conditions.
• Zone 3 includes two FingerLock panels to ensure the thumb is in an optimal position, while a simulated rope texture offers a tactile response to enhance club control without the need for excessive grip pressure.
• Zones 4 and 5 provide an exceptional feel for the lower hand thanks to the shallow micro-texture and a V-shaped dividing groove that promotes consistent hand positioning.

The Z5 is available (starting at $7.99) in red, black and blue color combinations in standard size models at select golf retailers and at Lamkingrips.com. The midsize models will be available in late August.

Offering the widest assortment of performance-enhancing golf grips, Lamkin has been an industry leader for more than 90 years. In addition to the legendary Arnold Palmer, the company’s famed products are preferred by PGA Tour superstars Justin Rose, Keegan Bradley, Brandt Snedeker, Miguel Angel Jimenez and many others.

Lamkin grips are unrivaled in quality thanks to world-class engineering, premium materials and handcrafted, repeatable production techniques. Other Lamkin offerings include the new SINK, Wrap-Tech and UTx models, as well as the iconic Crossline, the popular R.E.L ACE 3-Gen, and Tour Van options crafted according to Tour player specifications.
