I'm looking for a push cart. Finally decided to actually get some exercise out of the game and start walking.
Probably helps that I've been practicing a lot and can actually make a fairway most times, preventing me from losing time hunting for a ball and needing the cart to make it faster...

I've looked at the Clicgear 3.5+ but it's about $300 in Australia. The axglo came up as a pretty solid alternative for the features I was looking for (storage, lightweight, etc).

It's $179 for the 3-wheel and $199 for the 4-wheel in Oz.

Any advice? 3- over 4-wheel? Will not having a swivel wheel make it that much harder to push on fairways? I've only ever used the buggy you rent at courses and hose are two wheel and not the easiest to maneuver, especially in wet grass.

I have the 4 wheel Axglo flip and go. Pretty stable and folds up quite nicely. No issues pushing it up fairways or through the rough generally (My home course has kikuyu grass which can be a bit of hard work, but my mate who has a clicgear complains on that course as well).

 

The build quality of the pouch cover on the top is not as good as clicgear. I had to have mine replaced as mine broke. But was promptly given a replacement and no issues since.

 

I got it for about $100 cheaper from GCO as there was a sale going on at that time. For the price, can't really fault it. If you arent in a rush, keep an eye out for sales or check if anyone has one that they want to sell.

Yeah I think I got my Flip and Go for about $130-$140 from GCO and couldn't justify double the price on a Clicgear.

If you are looking at the Clicgear then you should also look at the Smoothy's, they are a good buggy as well.

The other one is the Rovic RV1C by Clicgear. I have it and is fantastic. Top handle storage could be better but I am ok with it as I have made it work with what I do and love it. Best move I ever made and is middle of the road Clicgear model and not as high end as the 3.5 or 8.

+1 for the Rovic. Excellent buggy and I've had Clicgear 3.0 as well but prefer the Rovic.

 

Each to his own. The Flip n Go is great too. Bro-in-Law has one and loves it.

Listen to what ever bazinoz says. His buggy clocks up more klms in a round than most normal people in a month. And it usually has a lot of time off the fairways.

I've got a slightly worn clicgear 3.5+ for sale if you're interested at a similar price

Damn straight. Like to get my money's worth out of a game Jay :)

 

Besides, when you're up the fairway i prefer to get out the way of the bl**dy incessant pommy-bashing :rolleyes:

 

Bit of peace & quiet...

Thanks for the tips guys.

Have any of you come across the caddytek ez? It looks really nice and is about $200 on so,e sites including eBay. Still $100 cheaper than a clicgear for a casual golfer like me

Went with the 3-wheel trilite. Planning on taking it for a spin next week along with the new 60° Cleveland rtx I just picked up :D.

Will post pics and a review of the buggy next week. I found detailed photos of it lacking.

For the time being I find it pretty nice. It could be a bit more solid but we'll see what she's like on the fairways (or rough) next week.

Thanks for the tips!

What's the longer term use verdict on these buggies? On special ATM at GCO, curious if they are worth considering.

I've had mine for years. Probably clocked up 150 rounds. Great buggy. I've had to do a few running repairs (brake cable replaced) but it's been more durable than I thought it would be. It is so light and I use a lightweight cart bag as well. Easily the best buggy I've had and cheap is a bonus!
