question for all of the push cart owners out there


Recommended Posts

Caddytek makes a nice cart, though I've never used the umbrella or drink holder. 

The foot brake is OK. Kind of annoying, but it's functional. I don't use the brake that often as it usually is pretty good about staying in place on it's own. I personally wouldn't have spent more at the time (or now) just because of the handbrake. 

I now have two full seasons on it and well over 500 miles walking. Everything is still in great shape minus a few loose stitches on the cooler pocket. My Sun Mountain bag has a better cooler, so the cart's cooler is rarely used anyway.

We have one ClicGear 3.5 in my household that's about 5 years old and has several hundred rounds on it.  It's been used at various times by me and both of my daughters.  I bought my youngest daughter her own ClicGear last fall.  And when both girls were playing quite a bit with me in the Spring and I got tired of carrying a half set, I got a Rovic (another brand from ClicGear) with Alphard eWheels.  So we're a three ClicGear family now.

They are absolutely indestructible.  I just finally replaced the bungee cords on the old one a few months ago.

i don’t know that i’d get the seat, but the array of attachments for the clicgear is pretty impressive. most are probably overkill but i could see myself using a couple of them. 

He didn't think he would, but the school plays a lot of tournaments July & August.

They get all kinds of grass in their shoes, and sometimes they have to wait to hit.

At first he didn't want it, but his grandma bought it, so he put it on.

A lot of the other kids use it if they take their shoes off for some reason.

that's what it seems like, plus im sure it keeps the handlebar section of the cart a little cleaner without the brake lever there.  have you had any experience with clic gear to make a head-to-head comparison?

No I haven't mate and I don't see a ton of them on my course. There's a lot of different brands but not as many Clics as you'd think.

Absolutely love the costco caddytek golf cart. It rides so smooth and I love all the spots I can store things in. The footbrake has never been an issue; and is surprisingly easy to get at. Good luck with you decision

i've got a push cart on my christmas wish list for the wife.  i'm bouncing back and forth between a refurbished clic gear 3.5+ at around $209 and one of the costco caddytek carts which is about half of that price right now on sale.

all other things being equal - the big difference here is that the clicgear has a hand brake(which i believe i'd prefer) and the caddytek a foot brake.

my question - is the convenience of a hand brake worth the extra cost of the clicgear cart? or is the clicgear built that much better than caddytek that the cost is well worth it?

thanks in advance

My days of wanted too and freely lugging around that Ping Hoofer packed with my normal golf gear are soon behind me.  Frankly it's just too much as you get older.  

I haven't yet invested in a pushcart, but definitely have been eyeing up the Clic Gear and a few other brands.  I wasn't aware that Costco had one.  I definitely will be looking into that today.  Just kills me to think I'm spending $200+ on a good bag with legs and then putting out another $200 for a push cart.  Just seems like overkill, but you can't really argue with the convenience and functional pieces it brings to walking the course. 

I'll definitely have to do some more research and see what other MyGolfSpy'ers have to say for input. 

Play Well!!

My old buggy has a foot brake and swivel front wheel and I found being able to lock the front wheel was more important that having a brake particularly on a hilly course. My wife now uses it and she finds the foot brake better than the hand brake she had on her old buggy. I also find that I have know issues with not having a brake on my GolfKart electric buggy, as mentioned all you need to do is turn it sideways on a hill as the front wheel is fixed, just do not do this with the Caddyteck if the wheel is not locked as it will take off down the hill.

One last thing to the umbrella holder on the Clicgear have an issue with the retainer rubber band thingy. They do not work very well.

My bag isn't necessarily large IMO, but it is almost on the last notch. Not sure if I had a passthrough that it would fit, but I'm super pleased with these new straps. It's so easy to secure my bag down compared to the Caddytek, I wasn't a fan of their drawstring things.

Bag Boy Quad for me. Went the four wheel route because of side hills.  Better than a brake (though the hand brake was just fine). 
 

But the number one issue for me was how small it would be when folded up. The guys at the store let me take three different carts out to my car to see how they would fit.  Gotta love living in Iowa...

What I thought was a frivolous purchase - a bag to store it in. Keep the wet grass clipping stuck to the wheels in the bag and the car truck clean, well, if not clean grass free...

Check out the Rovic rv1s. It's sold by clic gear and all their accessories are compatible. I got mine new for $219 shipped from the clic gear website. It has both a hand and a foot brake. The hand brake is for the front swivel tire and the foot brake is for the back tires. I've had no issue even on down slopes with just using the front brake.

For all you push or pull cart owners, here is something I came across years ago. I used to play a course that had a severe goose problem. Thus the resulting mass of goose droppings. I mean really bad.  All the walkers used to put women's shower caps over their tires. Then when you were done playing you would just toss them. Clean tires going into your trunk.

+1 for the Rovic RV1S.  I have one with the gen 1 Alphard eWheels on it, and I love it.

And if you get an eWheels, you want a swiveling front wheel.

If you ever plan on getting eWheels then go with the Rovic RV1S.  The front wheel makes all the difference in maneuvering on the golf course.   The eWheels did not work nearly as well on a ClicGear 3.5.  My family has two ClicGear 3.5s and the RV1S and love them.  They are more money when purchase but they work round after round without any maintenance.
