With the push cart you'll still at least get the walking exercise.

 

Maybe it's just me, but I personally think you should at least try out a $200 product before deciding to sell it. Just my 2 cents

If you spent good money to buy a good product such as the clicgear, then why wonder if you should use it or not?

I don't want to come across as rude, but if you bought it, then use it. If not, then why buy it in the first place right?

sorry pal, i did not buy it, i won the item at a golf event... overall, i think its a great item but just wondering if its worth keeping it or using the money for something else...

I'm a big fan of push carts. I bought a Bag Boy push cart 3 years ago when I was a "member" at a course that was unbearable to carry at (many half mile hikes from green to tee), and I found that I was much fresher at the end of a round when I pushed instead of carried. I really like the exercise of walking and I think there are advantages to be gained from walking (both enjoyment-wise and in terms of score), and I think the push cart gives you those things without the fatigue.

That Clic Gear is a great cart, but if you walk, and like to carry, sell it and play a couple of rounds at a nice course, or better yet, trade it in on some new shoes!!!

I've never used a push cart, but I think it's a good idea given my limited knowledge on how carrying clubs can effect your shoulders and neck. But, push carts are not as manly as carrying.

 

I don't have to worry because we are carts only (have to with our hilly course). But I do miss walking.

I have a clicgear and I like it. Especially on hotter days. Pack more water without putting the weight on my back. However, for whatever reason I have felt like carrying for the past few rounds. That does make me glad that I have a Nike Sq Tour bag that is great to carry and has removable straps for the clicgear. If you do keep the cart, I would recommend getting the wheel cover and the spike brush attachment. The brush cleans the shoes quite well and the cover keeps the grass on the tires from getting into the trunk.

An alternative to a push cart would be to get a very light weight carry bag - like the Superlight 3.5 by Sun Mountain, Izzo Scout, or the Ogio Vaporlite (although I'm not a huge fan of the stand system on that bag). I carry the Izzo Scout and my shoulders don't hurt at the end of a round as long as I don't load it down with a bunch of crap I don't need.

Another advantage of push carts is that you can use a cart bag. One feature I really like that I only see on cart bags is a putter well (keeps the HC from getting smushed), and I also like the increased pocket space.

Im 25 and no offense to older gentlemen I have a litle machoism in me i guess and want to carry to show that i can or whatever u want to say bad to say but i dont think carrying or pulling a cart going to wear me out anymore than the either of the two, i smoke so lets say im winded walking up hills anyway lol, but i sure when i do get a little older tha cart is there for me and my advice to anyone walking get the lightest bag and carry few things in it to make it light as possible

so far no one has mentioned the best part of a cart... a cup holder... so you don't need to set your beer on the ground and forget it (I've done it before)

I took a bit of crap from my buddies the first time I rolled out the clicgear. Whatever, back was not sore after the round. I gave them the "I'm 40" finger and moved on.

Irony is that I have carried more in the past year than ever before. Maybe it is the midlife thing. Gotta be a dumbass and prove I am still young. Like benching my body weight at the gym.

 

The cart absolutely rules on beer-golf rounds...
