  1. The EASILOCK function is great for the Motocaddy bags. It does not have any negative effects on non-Motocaddy bags. My Bagboy bag strapped down to the cart with no problems and stayed centered through the entire round. On my Sun Mountain reflex cart it would spin sometimes.
  2. @Motocaddy Prez any plans on including a follow me feature in future models? I am in the Tacoma area for business sometimes...
  3. Haha @Motocaddy Prez we appreciate it! It's not your fault!
  4. Oops forgot to include my round this weekend for the Grint Tour. Next one for sure!
  5. Now if only the dockworkers and the unions could come to an agreement so we could unload the containers and get our accessory packs that would be great...
  6. Unfortunately that will be up to @Tpoole22. Our rainy season has pretty much ended here in SoCal! I could spray some water on the screen and try lol. As for traction, if the grass is wet, the wheels can slip depending on the grade of the terrain. Going uphill i did have a few wheel spins but downhill seems to be fine. The tread pattern on the wheels seems able to handle terrain well.
  7. Lol I think I got your bag then. I ordered blue but got red! But just like you said, no complaints just glad I got the bag! First round with it tomorrow. Will report back on how the clubs go in and out of the dividers. Sometimes the Shotscope tag on the butt end of my clubs would get caught in the threads of my old bag.
  8. Quick video and picture of the Easilock function. The studs fit into the slots on the "tongue" of the cart and really do keep the bag from moving. It is still easy to remove the bag if you lift straight up. Good function and I will have to test on rough ground to see if the bag stays on without the lower bag strap. 20210415_175305.mp4
  9. Yesterday I let the cart go up a fairly small but steep hill at my range. It actually flipped up like the scene in Cars with the tractors in the field. First time that happened but as @Tpoole22 mentioned, we don't have the wheelie bar in the back like the remote unit does as it is expected that you will be hands off with the remote units. I think it was because the speed was too fast going up. I think I had it on setting 5. As I was picking it back up, I noticed there is some sort of differential or other feature that makes the wheel on one side stop while the other side kept spinning. May be
  10. Noting here since I am testing the Motocaddy for MGS. Current weight 184.
  11. Either way dealer should pay for all repairs since you just bought the car or take it back as a lemon.
  12. So this is turning into as much a bag test as it is an electric push cart test! Haven't had a chance to test the Easilock function but will be on the range tonight and will just mount the bag to the cart for testing purposes. Moved my entire bag over and found a few differences from my Datrek Light II bag. The valuables pockets are deeper so more space for bigger phones. I have a Note 20 Ultra so fairly large phone that I will test the fit. I use my phone for the Grint during rounds so not that it would stay in there. The cooler pocket is really big. I can fit a 6 pack of seltzer water with ro
  13. getting better with that 3W off the deck. 225 was about the distance I was looking for at the start of this test last year! smashing it off the tee for sure! Goes almost as long as if not longer sometimes than my driver!
  14. As someone who wore glasses all my life then had LASIK performed a few years ago, it would be interesting to see if this truly helps! Thanks for being the guinea pig @GolfSpy Dave though I am sure no actual guinea pigs were hurt in the testing of this product...right?
  15. We're going to need to see videos of this race! I was thinking I could race the GPS unit against a golf cart with the automatic distance control set to max (60 yards) but in that mode it automatically sets the speed to 5 so it wouldn't work. I could run behind it at speed 9 but that would be a 60 yard sprint! Yep, also Roger mentioned that they are trying to focus on rental fleets at courses so having a detachable piece like a remote would be a liability. My buddy's dad who is retired plays with a remote cart (not sure of the brand) but I think after a while you just get used to having
  16. Any SoCal spies want to get in a round together for the Grint tournament? I know we have a thread for that already but thinking with this Grint collabo it would be fun to get groups going!
  17. For sure. Roger mentioned that this is the feedback he is looking for from the test so that they can use it for future models. Apparently the UK and US markets are a bit different in terms of customer wants and needs. I asked why the GPS and remote functions could not be merged into one unit and he said that in Europe most consumers have shown they don't really care much for a remote.
  18. Nice videos @ole gray! I have been opening both latches and opening the unit in one go and not in 2 steps but either way works! One thing I did find is when closing the unit back down, the front wheel needs to be lifted slightly for it to fold down or else the friction between it and the pavement keeps it from folding down. Anyone else having that issue?
  19. @Tpoole22 I used your link to enter good luck!
  20. @B.Boston does the Arccos app consume a lot of battery? The Grint itself doesn't really consume much battery for me if you don't keep it on the whole round. Just start the app and then turn it on only to enter scores or look at GPS for hazards and stuff. I just claimed my free set of Arccos sensors from TM for being a Birdie rewards customer lol. They wanted 129 more for the wearable but I am just going to try for a few rounds and compare to my Shotscope. Will probably give them away to a friend or family member after I have tried them. This is such a great idea. Now every round I play i
  21. Took the M5 out for a spin today (lol sounds like I am talking about a certain German performance sedan) to test the battery life. Last time the battery was charged was last week after my second round. Battery has been sitting disconnected since then. Plugged it in today when setting up the cart and at first the battery indicator showed full. Then immediately dropped down to about 75% but still green. 35 minutes in, the indicator had not changed. It went down to 50% and yellow then bounced back up to green for bit. I would say about 1 hour into the round, the indicator stayed at 50% and yellow
  22. Congrats to the testers! Let's see that big stick data!
  23. Been working from home since last March. My office was about 5 minutes from a muni operated by American Golf where I had a players club membership so lunch breaks were for hitting the range. After the shutdown and WFH transition, I bought a net but really only used it twice as I live in an apartment and I still have to go and find a space to set it up etc and the courses and ranges opened up not long after I bought the net. I canceled my players club membership at the course near my office and joined one closer to home. Definitely playing more rounds during the week with the flexible hours but
