I finally decided to replace my 12-year-old Bag Boy push cart. It is held together with wire and some other repairs, but it is reaching the end of its life. So, just before Christmas, on my birthday, I decided it was time to conduct some retail therapy. I did my research and decided to purchase a Clic 3.5+ golf push cart. Needless to say, I am quite happy with my new wheels and look forward to using it in the summer. How did I settle on my new toy, well let me tell you!
I decided on this particular cart for many reasons: it was assembled in Canada, it is robust, it has three wheels vice four, cost, and reviews. I did my research and this particular cart finished as 1, 2 or 3 in almost all results. So, on an average it had the best value for the money.
My friend Blair has an older Clic model and he is very happy with his purchase. So his opinion was also weighed in on my decision. Nothing like testimony you can trust to help with the decision-making process.
The deciding factor for my was its ability to fold up into a small package for storage in my car. All golf push carts fold up, but most take up a fair amount of room in my trunk. So, I decided to go with something a bit more portable.
My new cart also has other features like a larger storage box, screw in umbrella holder, cup holder, and bungee cord bag straps.
I mention the last feature because my last cart used velcro straps and it was a poor design for odd-shaped golf bags. I was never able to get the straps tight enough to prevent my bag from shifting in the holders. So, I figure the bungee cord straps will do the trick.
Overall, I am extremely satisfied with my purchase. I am looking forward to using it in the heat of the summer. When it has a few rounds under its belt, I will revisit this post and let you know if my perceived value is really there.
Do you use a push cart? If so, what kind?
Finally, I am trying a feature I never use on my blog: the gallery. Let me know what you think.
I am a grateful golfer. See you on the links.
