I’m currently gaming a Bridgestone JGR that I got through a promotion WITH MGS. It has a bonded head. I agree that if your Driver etc are adjustable, remove the heads, and insert the shafts adapter down. However, the addition of a Stiff Arm or similar (saw hockey stick shaft here somewhere) is NEVER a bad idea.

The Ogio is the cheapest of our three options, coming in under $150. As far as travel bags go, you don’t want to go much cheaper than this. Your clubs are worth a decent amount of money, so you want to protect them as much as you can for what fits your budget. The Straight Jacket weighs 7.6 lbs – three pounds less than the Club Glove option – and thanks to its construction, it won’t be quite as durable. But since it’s a bit lighter, you can pack some extra shoes in. The bag has the same protective features – reinforced base, padded top, secure zippers – as the other bags, but it’s definitely less structured. 
The Titleist Players 14 Stand Bag can only be described as “heavy” if you’re talking about the features. The lightweight design uses a proprietary stand system to achieve the optimal leg position and …
To protect your woods, take the heads off (if possible), put inside headcovers, then put in side pocket of your golf bag. No stiff arm needed and the shafts can take more of a beating from bags stacked on top without breaking
The Titleist 2017 Players 4 stand golf bag does everything different so players get the best bag. Quality construction, design and materials make this TItleist’s lightest premium bag for dedicated gol…
Lightweight and portable, stand bags are designed for golfers who walk the course and they provide the most versatility. While made for walking, with back-back straps to help shoulder the load, these can always be strapped to a pull or push cart if necessary. Two retractable, built-in legs allow for these bags to stand upright while you set up and hit your shot.
The sun Mountain club glider is hands down the best travel bag. With its four wheel configuration you never have to reach down to pick it up and you simply pulled it. You do not have to support any of your clubs weight so it is effortless to move. You can strap a full size suitcase to its handles and pull your golf clubs and luggage like a train through the airport.
Cart bags are meant to be attached to the back gas or electric golf carts. They are usually heavier and have minimal or uncomfortable straps as they are not intended for extended carrying. They feature increased storage space for extra accessories, drinks, clothes, etc, while most feature all forward facing pockets that can all be accessed while strapped in. Many, but not all cart bags can be utilized with a push or pull cart.
14-way top with integrated top handles (not the actual color of the bag, just a representation of the top). Trunk handle. Includes matching rain hood. 2 water resistant valuables pockets. 10 zippered …

I am on my third Club Glove… wouldn’t even consider another brand. Never had a club damaged (always use the Stiff Arm). I average 25 plane trips a year with the sticks. These covers last years, outlasting golf clubs and bags. I have tried the SKB hard cases, but they really don’t offer much more protection, they break and are a pain to fit into a rental car frequently. Then it takes up a big patch of real estate in your hotel room…

Club Glove’s name exudes confidence. Naming your travel bag “Last Bag” means your customers aren’t going to have to replace this bag for the rest of their golfing life. Granted, the price is $319.99, so it better be resilient. And the Last Bag lives up to the name. It weighs 10.6 lbs on its own, so it feels hearty and strong right out of the box. It’s made out of Cordura water resistant nylon, has YKK zippers and comes with an extra padded handle at the top and bottom. Also, the 2016 model has extra reinforcement on the back of the bag towards the base that was easily strained in older models. For $59, you can buy a “No Questions Asked” warranty, where Club Glove will replace your bag for free if anything happens to it. Otherwise, it has a limited lifetime warranty. Club Glove offers three sizes: Last Bag XL Pro Tour, Last Bag Large Pro and Last Bag Collegiate. Our pick is the Large Pro because the XL Pro Tour is huge and the Collegiate is small. The Large Pro is just right.
The ClubGlider Tour Series features a 4-wheel design that performs exceptionally under the stresses of the airport. The top half of the bag offers outstanding protection. There is adequate storage space for both golf clubs and travel supplies.  The Glubglider Tour provides all the necessary features of a travel bag with the maneuverability of a standard suitcase.
Also referred to as a tour bag, this is the top-tier bag used by pros in tournaments, large and able to showcase branding. These bags are heavy – meant to be carried by a caddy or strapped in a cart – and provide the most storage of any bag to fit in rain gear, extra clothing, an umbrella, food, drink, and plenty of balls. If you will be playing in tournaments or just need more storage than the average player, this is the bag for you.
For travel bags, our scoring centered around the protection of clubs and the durability of the bag. The possible storage within the bag and the storage of the bag after use were also considered. Maneuverability – especially through airports – was tested too.
Travel bags are meant to protect your gear, including your regular bag, while traveling. They’re not meant to be used as a replacement for the one that you use when you play golf. Some of them are designed to be hard-case luggage, while others are malleable bags that are made from durable material. If you use a travel one only 15 or so times a year, you will have saved yourself hundreds of dollars in club repairs because of how well they work.
I’ve been using the A99 hands down the best travel bag. It had a full length 9 in diameter PVC tube as the inner liner. The exterior looks like s normal golf bag. Two full length side pockets fit shoes raingear. Bottom has room for balls etc. Two wheels on bottom and s handle on the top make pulling in easy. It stands up on flat bottom. When you arrive at resort you remove the protective tube shaped head cover and it’s a gold bag you can carry by strap it place on a cart. These easily fit a trunk and weigh the sane as most carry bags. Priced under $200 can
