I would get the KR. It has a great warranty (5 years) with unbeatable customer service.. I once called them for a broken handle on a bag that was 4 years old and they send me a new handle free of charge.. That won't happen with to many companies. I will tell you that..

My pro shop guy has had numerous Elite bags come back with handle issues after a a few months use. I don't know if these are isolated incidents or not..

The bottom line is I would stick with KR.. You won't be sorry..

I have the Elite bag that I got as a gift last year and it has held up nicely. That being said I thing the KR bag is the better bag. The warranty is better, it has more storage space and there customer service is the best.

I have a bag I use for back up that I have had for almost 10 years. The handle cracked last summer and I asked KR where I could purchase a replacement. They asked for my address and sent a replacement even though the warranty expired years ago. That's great customer service.

By far KR makes the best bag and has the best customer service in the industry.
