Great to hear you are back to walking again with your electric cart. Unfortunately, I will out of commission for 4+ weeks. Had to have a medical procedure! It's a bummer, but with the heat being around 95 everyday I am OK to miss a few weeks.

... Dam sorry to hear that. But if you have to be laid up, middle of the winter/summer is probably best case scenario. I hope you get back to normal quickly.

I like the looks of that cart.  Doesn’t look bulky, simple.  Price seems decent as well.

From what I can tell though we cannot get those in the US 😞

I picked up a used Carttec 3 years ago.  I have had questions and user errors, low remote battery .  Called the manufacture they walked me through what I needed to do.  Were very helpful.  I don't have a lithium battery so it is heavy, but is a work horse .  My Course has a high hill on 1 & 10 it handles it with no problem.  Would recommend

My golf buddy just picked up an MGI from costco. He went straight from carrying to this, and he loves it. I have a Kangaroo, and if I had seen the MGI first, I would have bought the MGI.

I absolutely love mine, my health is better from walking. Just waiting on some fall weather and will be playing a lot more golf.

Love it.  How did you attach the sand bottle? Or was that a click gear attachment.  I’ve got a Bag Boy Quad and have always felt guilty for not taking a sand bottle.

Yeah, it’s a click gear accessory, but if your cart has that little button, I bet it would work. The cooler bag underneath is also a clic gear accessory. My speaker and Garmin gps are mounted using a caddie buddy (caddiebuddy.com) clamp. They hav3 a variety of attachment heads for different items like belt clips and go pro Camera screws etc... they are really well made and can be rotated into virtually any position or clamp onto almost anything without slipping. Mine are around 3-4 years old and work like new. Neoprene rubber grips on the inside area that grabs onto any surface.

I got my eWheels V2 last weekend and took it out on Sunday. It was the most fun and easy going round I've had walking since using a caddie. My back has never felt better after walking. Been carrying with a Hyperlite Zero most of the year. My home course has a lot of uphills holes 15-17 and it was getting rough pushing a cart.

I have it hooked up to a BagBoy Tri-Swivel II and it rolled so easy and has pretty much a 0 turn radius. I tested the limits of the slopes it could handle, took quite a bit for it to fall back on the wheelie bars. 

Don't have pics or video on the course. This is just me testing it out in my backyard:

Do the Alphard or the MGI Zip Navigator have easy disconnect to let the wheels free-wheel?  In AZ in the winter, I connect the handle of my push cart to the rear rack on my bicycle, and I pedal to the course with my cart trailing behind me.  I'd love to get a remote electric cart, so the freewheel setting & convenience is important.

... ZIP has a wheel disconnect. You press the tab and pull out a little until it locks into free wheel mode. Still not an easy push though with 2 motors so not sure how it would roll behind a bike.

Mission Royale down in Casa Grande. It’s a nice everyday layout that’s suffering in condition under the care of the current operator.  But it’s in our development and it’s very walkable.
