Push Cart Mafia - What are you rolling with?

Recommended Posts

I'm ll about the organization, and am not too hung up on the weight of what I got. I'm simply starting to look for the best cart to haul it around on and one that will survive.

If you go with a CaddyTek, I'd get the 4-wheel one in your case. The bag sits more upright on these and it'll be easier for you to get your clubs out, since you are rocking a 14-way divider. My buddy has the 4-wheel CaddyTek and has a Hoofer14. While it's not quite as large as your bag, he has no issues. I should try to lay his bag on my 3-wheel CaddyTek to see if I can get clubs out of the "bottom" dividers. I feel like it would give me issues clearing the handle.

Said it before in here, but I'm pretty happy with my Bag Boy Quad XL. This is a 4-wheel type with good features and sturdy construction.

I've read everyone's responses here, and it looks like the Clicgear 3.5 and the Caddy TeK are the two I'll start looking at. I have no plans on getting a different bag at this time, so anyone else using a big cart bag like my PING DLX? Seems the consensus here for bags like mine leans toward the 3.5...

I had a clicgear 3.5, bit of a faff to put up and down and its quite big/wide. Kept pulling left all the time. A point to note is it doesnt cope with carry bags well, a cart bag no problem as its a big trolley.

I got rid of mine after 4 weeks and bought a cheap (quarter the price of the clicgear 3.5)  simple push trolley from a golf shop, easy to put up and down, holds a carry bag firmly and can push with 1 finger- never pulls left or right either👏

Ooo, these are some things a newbe to push carts wouldn't have even thought about-good call!

FWIW, I'm going on year 4, maybe 5 with my Clicker 3.5+

Just washed and tightened it up today. Longevity on this cart is no joke, and should anything break, the Clicgear site has a bunch of spare parts.

I've used it without issue with my Hoofer, Hoofer 14, Nike Hybrid, Ping Pioneer, MGS Vessel cart bag. Just need to adjust the straps and it will fit just about anything. Adding the 40oz hydroflask does cause a bit of twisting. I've actually thought about adding some stick on rubber pads to the bag holders to kill off all twisting.

Love that cart, and I literally had a dozen different cart models in my garage at one point. It's my hands down favorite.

No love for the Sun Mountain Speed carts. It is a great simple cart. It doesn’t fold small but it fit in my civic easily. Now it is in the #golfmobile , My 01 4 door blazer. Everything fits in there.
It is a great cart, reliable, sturdy, well designed and crafted. No lose.

Definitely don't want to deal with any "faff"..!😏 It may be that I simply go to one of our local stores and just play with some-Cheers!

The only issue I have consistently with the Caddytek is folding it back down, it doesn't click into place every time. I think the clicgear folds up way smaller too, which would be a bonus for me since I have a relatively small trunk.

Now that you say this, I'm thinking back and believe I'm coming up on 5 years with mine already. Can confirm this thing is durable. At least 90% of my rounds are walking and I've used it on all different types of courses. This past year I've been mixing in more running during my rounds (to meet SWMBO deadlines) and have found it to be a worthy cart for quick and speedy maneuvers. 

It's taken a few spills and still keeps rolling with no issues. My version of washing it off includes playing in the rain. This past summer I replaced 2 straps (one for the base and one for the scorecard). Other than that, there's been zero issues with the cart. By far the most reliable part of my game 😂

Suffice it to say, the Cliqgear has paid for itself in cart fees and "exercise."

Feel free to mock me for asking this but is anyone using the optional seat with their clicgear?  I have no issues gaming the Launcher HB irons but don't know if I can be that guy that uses the seat.

I'd looked at it - yes, I admit it - as during the Summer there can be looooong wait times between shots and between holes.......

Decided that I didn't want the extra weight, though.

But it is a good idea for "those" days!

my only issue with the clicgear 3.5+ was it's size and putting it up and down, then its size in the trunk of the car.

Eventually I sold it (for more than I paid so it holds its value) and bought a slimmer, lighter American Golf cheapo push cart which does exactly what I need on the course.

Strange decision, pull is far harder than push, and more awkward.

Here it is.. Pic also shows the "tour attachment" to make the bag more upright. 3545.jpg

Nice setup!

Micturition excluded, I've always said - why stand when you can sit? I say this a lot during men's club tourneys.

My padded seat doubles as another storage container. Pic also shows the "Pukka tour attachment" to make it... faster.

Looks good! How do you like the Frogger towel?

Still rolling with my ClicGear 3.5....but I've been considering a Bat Caddy as a few folks at my local course have them and they look amazing. As close as I'll get to a consistent caddy. Definitely pondering....but will probably wait until the new year to decide...especially with starting a new business up.
