Introduction (May 17, 2023)

Greetings, my fellow spies. My name is Chris and I presently live in Omaha, NE. I’m excited to be chosen as a product tester and this couldn’t be a better product for me to be chosen for. I’ve been a loyal golf cart mafia member for over a decade. My original motivation to make the move to a cart came after seeing a friend of mine using one and deciding that carrying a bag in 90+ temps and 80%+ humidity is just really stupid, lol. However, my current motivation for using a cart has more to do with foot and knee injuries over the last couple of years making carrying my bag too difficult.

I am married to a wonderful wife who supports my golf habit, even when she shouldn’t. I have three sons all finishing their freshman year of high school. Yep, triplets. One of my boys has picked up golf and is improving at really fast rate. He went from shooting low to mid 100s last summer to breaking 90 for the first time in his last high school tournament two weeks ago. He has set a lofty goal of breaking 85 this summer and I honestly won’t be surprised if he manages to break 80 at least once.

I began golfing when I was 10 and just celebrated turning 50 in March. At my peak in college I played to a 1.2 handicap but never managed to break par for 18 holes. I’m currently a 5.9 handicap with my scores in 2023 trending into the mid 70s pretty consistently. Although I don’t really focus on the handicap number as much as my overall game, I am hoping to get down below a 3.0 by the end of the season. My goal this year is to play 50 rounds to celebrate my 50th birthday which might be a loftier goal than I first thought considering the golf season runs from Mid March to late October/early November. I have 11 under the belt so far so as long as my knee holds out I think I can make it happen.

WITB:

I considered myself a PING brand loyalist for decades going back to high school when I bought my first set of PING Eye 2 irons. Loved them so much I played them through last fall. Yep, 32 years with that set of irons. Played my PING Anser putter that I bought in 1988 until last fall as well. I even played the original TaylorMade Burner driver as well that I bought around 1992-ish that came out before the graphite Bubble shaft became popular. I took a lot of grief from friends every time we played for using outdated clubs but it was always hard to justify the expense of a whole new set when I could still break 80 on a regular basis. I don’t know what finally happened to make me pull the trigger, tired of getting harassed or a desire to finally break par, but I finally splurged and bought a whole new set of everything. Including a new bag replacing my beat up PING Hoofer that I loved so much. My current setup is  listed in my profile if you want to see the full set up. I’ve always wanted to play Mizuno irons so I’m glad I finally made the splurge.

Now, down to the nitty gritty. When it comes to a push cart, there are several features that are key in my opinion and I will be focusing on during my review. The first of which is ease of opening and closing. My current cart is pretty easy to open and close but it does take multiple steps to get it open and secured. A process which typically takes 2-3 minutes. While this doesn’t really seem like a huge deal, it seems like there should be an easier and faster way to get from open to closed and vice-versa. We shall see if the Nitron delivers in this area.

The second feature I will focus on is how easy it is to load and unload and how secure the bag is in the cart. My biggest complaint with my current cart is the degree of difficulty with getting a bag loaded depending on the shape and size of the top and bottom collars. Once loaded it is pretty rare for my bag to come loose but it has happened. The Top-Lock feature on the cart sounds like an added bonus for securing a bag and could be enough to convince me to buy a new bag based on what I’ve read so far. More to come on this front for sure.

The third key aspect for me to judge is how easy it is to push around the course and its stability on hilly terrain. My current cart tends to turn slightly to the left as it rolls which is rather annoying after a while as I have to continually steer and correct its course as I walk. It also has fair stability on side hills but it is prone to tipping when left sideways. It also struggles to move smoothly through rougher terrain like trees and deep rough when chasing after those random stray shots.

Admittedly, I don’t know a lot about this product other than what I’ve read online. If there are other aspects or features you want to know more about during this review process please let me know in the comments. My ultimate goal is to help everyone else make an informed decision if this product is on your short list of golf carts.

I've had some variation of a Top-Lock bag in different shopping carts on multiple occasions over the past couple of days! I just love my Sun Mountain bag a lot, I'd hate to change it out.

Awesome intro @edingc, I think I might need to track mileage when it comes in!

had a question on your caddytek, does your top arm fall down like this:

Really looking forward to the bagboy coming in. I think alot of the features are going to work really well for what I am interested in.

Not while I'm using it, but yes the top arm tends to fall when trying to load the bag into the cart. I tightened it up with a screwdriver and that has helped some, but it's definitely a wear part.

Walked today (of course) and at the end of the round a few guys were at the clubhouse and the patio overlooks the 9th hole (started on 10) and one of them said "did you walk all 18?" and I said "yea of course" as he replied "Jesus you're an animal". Tough course to walk for sure but I LOVE IT!

I would really like to walk a few rounds this summer. It’s a no go when my little guy tags along, which is nearly every time, but if I get the rare chance to play alone (not going to lie, I LOVE early AM solo dew sweeper rounds), I will definitely be walking.

While tempted, the owner was not outside. As a newer club member, I thought it prudent to try to avoid any incidents potentially involving law enforcement 🚔👮‍♂️🤣

Had some free time today so decided to get some pics of my current cart and provide some reference for what some of the comparisons will be made against.

IMG_2172.jpeg.0a179e687fbf449bb6dd51f73febfb41.jpegIMG_2175.jpeg.9cd3992ee247e4d9de54e03914146821.jpeg

This is the cart in it's fully closed position. The front wheel folds under and the batwings fold in and screw down to stay closed.

IMG_2178.jpeg.f1ad0a1d37a91a0f4e932b555863cd92.jpegIMG_2177.jpeg.e03aa3ba32666abe187726b763f3d261.jpeg

After untucking the wheel, unfolding the handle, and opening the batwings, you tighten down all the screws to secure it in place. This took just under a minute. While this doesn't seem like a long time, it is a bit tedious. Being ten plus years old the screws don't tighten as well as they used and they never really tightened down really in the beginning. This is an area I really want to see improvement in in both time and ease. The handle has both a covered case that can hold my wallet or phone or keys and a netted basket that can also hold items that aren't too heavy. The cup holder is in between the covered case and the basket and works great. I found using a coozy helps secure the can to help reduce spillage.

IMG_2180.jpeg.a80e628d3e5be6f55b043a835ae61754.jpegIMG_2182.jpeg.ec3eec78a513168562c47fb30af89e74.jpegIMG_2181.jpeg.d694d008b6f89547f68b15b4919f50fa.jpeg

Getting my bag on the cart isn't that hard but does take just over 30 seconds, when it goes smoothly, to get all the bat wings tightened up around the sides. This is an area I am hoping for improvement in with the Nitron as I have had occasions where my bag can bounce loose, or even off, when going over bumpy terrain.

IMG_2184.jpeg.fda599e46199f0f5eeea102aec481df3.jpegIMG_2183.jpeg.91ebec143847f102198ca03a2ab4174a.jpeg

As you can see in the pics, the bat wings don't go even half way up around the the bag which is why it can rock loose over really bumpy ground, or even fall off if the cart tips side to side. This hasn't happened a lot over the years but it usually happens in the most inopportune times, lol.

I know nobody is following this thread to see pics of my old cart but all this waiting for my shipping information is driving me stir crazy. Plus I wanted to share what my baseline will be for judging the performance of the Nitron. Feel free to shoot any questions or suggestions for what you want to know more about on the Nitron.

My introduction has been posted! And I woke up to a great email this morning:

I don't know that the other testers have received a shipment notification just yet, but it won't be long until mine is on my doorstep!

Really rubbing it  in on us here Cody! I need to update my “shop” app which seems to stay really up to date on orders. Still no notification here!

I'm a big walker and do so whenever possible; I've been using a push cart since before they came with 3 wheels!!

one of the more frustrating annoyances for me with the 3 and 4 wheelers is how steep of an angle the clubs 'lay down' if you know what I mean.

I actually looked for a cart that held the bag perfectly upright but couldn't find one. I then tried to create something for my cheap caddytek to elevate them and that didn't work.

That's one of the things I like about my clicgear 4; it has an adjustable upper saddle that can accommodate any bag and changes the angle at which the bag sits in relation to the handle.  You can get a perfect fit and the clubs tend to be more upright which makes sliding clubs in and out of your bag easier.

Morning-

I will be interested to see how the selected testers feel about this cart.  I have had mine for the last year now and love it, had a caddytek before but really was intrigued by the top lock system.  I roll with the bagboy chiller bag that sits nicely into the cart.  The opening and closing of the cart is really nice compared to my old caddytek, rolls nice and the brake function is fabulous.  The only thing that I have not liked is the location of the cup holder, for my bag setup it is right in the way of the putter well....  Other then that though the phone lock is nice and the large storage bag is great.  Looking forward to see what you guys think.....Enjoy!!
