Walker Trolleys — The Upper Class Push Cart

Recommended Posts

Walker Trolleys - https://walkertrolleys.com - launched a Kickstarter today for their "minimalist" push cart. It's a great look, classic and pays homage to the push carts found in Scotland, made from high quality materials and so on.

I was the first backer of the project when it launched earlier today, and I encourage everyone here to check it out.

No, this isn't a push cart for everyone. If you're interested in the best all-around push cart, get a ClicGear (my daughter and I have three). This is a push cart that says something about you as a golfer, that you're refined, that you have taste, that you appreciate throwbacks and muscle backs and Hogan. That you contemplate playing with hickories (or actually do from time to time). That you appreciate the smell of fresh cut grass as much or more than winning $20 or drinking a beer while you play.

This push cart does look really stylish. Sturdy and well designed. It is missing a key function for me, an umbrella holder. I play nearly 40% of my rounds with the threat of rain or in rain so an umbrella holder is a critical function. 

Still, if I was in the market this would be near the top of the list.

Very classy looking trolley.  I will say that the console seems a bit lacking for today’s market.  Spent many years with 2 wheel pull carts where I stuffed everything in the bag.  My current cart has a closed console and I have come to really like the convenience.

i can see where umbrella and cup holders could be pretty easily added accessory (clamped or whatever).

It's a good looking trolley. It's not really my style. They'll have to pry my bright blue ClicGear 3.5+ from my cold dead hands. I don't think my bright blue Nike bag would look right on the back of a Walker Trolley. 

Even still, I may head over to kickstarter and support them. It's always cool to see a company you've supported make it. These guys seem like they have a pretty cool vision.

Yeah, they have a few other levels even if you don't want to buy a cart.

I've met the guy behind this company - briefly, but I have met him. Seems like a really good guy and very passionate about these. I love the look of the cart, and I would be very interested if I was in the market for a new cart at all. Right now, I have two of them at home, so I'm not really in the market. I will probably end up supporting the kickstarter without committing to the cart itself.

The ball markers are nice, and I have plenty of polos.

These guys got a nice little write up in this month's issue of Golf Magazine. 

I read this and was like "Hey I remember way back in October when  @iacas first told us about these guys on Kickstarter.

I’m the first customer. I’m waiting my trolley.

Really looking forward to it.

Totally cool. I assume of course that you will let us know when you get it and give us a full review. 

My guess is it might take a while to get it as all "non-essential" personnel are being asked to stay home these days. Not sure what that means from state to state, but I would imagine that it will delay your trolley at least to some degree.

Do I just need to write a prescription for them to stay open? I consider golf to be essential, especially at this time.  At least for me.

Just kidding.

Sort of.

$399 for a push cart, personally don't see that from the pictures, and don't know if it is really elevating style and functionality, but that's just from my perspective.  Not something I would push around the course, but I'm sure others will like it, and I hope the company does well.

If you got into the Kickstarter it wasn’t $399. 🙂

Nice looking cart. What's the width of the wheels? Looked on their website but don't see it.

Just about 2", maybe a tiny bit wider.

    • Much appreciated. Doing the list the way you did is perfectly fine, just add the link to the post next time 
    • The younger generation equivalent of this is probably 15 signs you watch too much golf on Instagram/TikTok, but it kind of doesn't make sense because the videos are so short.
    • Okay, I was just trying to spare us all the slideshow. But, I'll be sure to include the link in the future. 
    • So you can do what you did and add head weight to counter the grip weight. You can find lighter midsize grips, which obviously isn't always a viable option. You can also find shafts with more tip heavy balance points. You could also add a little length to the club to get that weight back. All these options have pros and cons. My personal feeling on SW is that it's mainly about getting a consistent feel through your irons and wedges. I don't care about matching woods, hybrids, putters to an iron SW. Most important for me is a smooth weight progression through the set so each club is getting heavier moving from driver to wedges. The simplest option is start out with just the new grips and no additional weight at the tip. Use whatever iron you want, and hit some balls with impact stickers, foot spray powder, dry erase marker on balls, launch monitor, etc, to look at your impact pattern. Then start adding some lead tape to the back and repeat the process. At some point you should find your consistency is at it's best and adding or taking away weight from that point is detrimental. Then just add the same amount to the rest (remembering head weight influences longer clubs more than shorter so you may want to shave a gram or two off in the longer irons vs. the shorts). Only other thing to look out for if you add weight to the clubs is how you hit them at the end of the round when you are tired compared to the start of the round. Most people can handle an 130g shaft for the first 5-10 swings, but not necessarily by the end of the round.
