The brackets work, but it's annoying, yes. Usually my bag will get askew when I first lay it on the cart, or on the first hole. I always find a position for it though that keeps it in place, and thus, it's not really an issue. It is a bit annoying at times, I'll admit that, but overall, it's fine I think.
I think a lot of this depends on what type of golf bag you have. Obviously certain bag designs will fit better with the Micro Cart's "one size fits all" mold.
For me, it's a slight issue, but nothing big enough to make a big stink about.
2) Magnetic scorecard holder. Sounds nice, but there's a space right below for valuables, which, to me, means my cellphone.Since magnets aren't very good for digital storage and/or screens, does the magnet affect your phone?
thanks for the help!
I've never had an issue. I think I actually keep my credit cards and stuff in my golf bag, but I tend to leave my phone in that compartment near the magnet. I dunno, someone correct me if I'm wrong, but this has never been a problem.
I bought the 2012 Micro for my dad as well, and he really loves it. I admit he's easy to please when it comes to golf related gifts, but he's never complained to me about the cart.
Here's my review of the cart: http://thesandtrap.com/products/sun-mountain-2012-micro-cart/reviews/4806
Perhaps not the most in-depth review ever, but maybe that'll help a bit.
