Not everyone likes the Clicgear, myself included. They are very well constructed but they feel like tanks instead of sports cars. Someone mentioned the maneuverability and I agree. The weight is irrelevant, it's more of a feel thing. Don't take it personally.

But if we’re constantly in bunkers, shouldn’t we have tanks!😜 Personal preference is key with all golf equipment. I’ve had Sun Mountain, Clicgear and others. They’re all a bit different. Quality construction and personal feel are the most important factors.

They're built like tanks, right. They last, and last, and last…

Sports cars break down all the time.

Also, the listed sizes on the site are…

  • The ClicGear 4.0 is 21 pounds and folds down to 13" x 15" x 24".
  • The ClicGear Rovic 17 pounds and folds down to 13" x 15" x 24".

Here's one of the selling points:

I dragged the family out last night to go look at push carts. Here's an interesting data point. They had a pair of refurbished CaddyTek carts for a really good price. (But not the style and color I wanted.) I asked the guy if they had any refurbished ClicGear carts. His quote "Oh we never get refurbished ClicGear carts. Once and a while a Sun Mountain, but never a ClicGear." Apparently they just don't fail, so there just aren't any to refurbish. 

That's from the other topic, of course. You can click through to it. I linked to it earlier.

Personally I quite like my BagBoy Nitron for the main reason of me being lazy and wanting a push cart that's quick/easy to setup and takedown in the parking lot before and after rounds. The Nitron can be unfolded or re-folded in less than 5 seconds, and so far for me (over two years of use) has proven to be plenty durable. The only things I wish were different really would be slightly larger wheels like the Clicgear (makes pushing a bit easier) and perhaps a little bit larger diameter for the cupholder.

@Pretzel thanks for reminding me. I need to order the XL beverage holder for my Rovic.

If it hasn't been mentioned yet, TheGolfWarehouse (TGW) has a branded cart that i've had for 4 seasons of 2-4 walking rounds per week and its held up well.  I have the 4 wheel version.

My new Sun Mountain Speedcart GX arrived today.  First impression, it’s nice, rolls around well, easy to put up and takedown.  Seems to have a little more plastic than my old Micro Cart, but still seems like really good quality.  It definitely rolls better than my old cart, but I think the one downfall is the bag seems to lay a little flatter (bag is a tad more upright on the old cart).  I’ll also state it seems it’ll be more stable (the positive from being less upright I guess).

 Pretty sure I’m going to be happy with it, and be fine with the trade offs between the two.  I’ll share if any major disappointment arises after a few rounds.

Although not really a push/pull cart, I went with the Mack daddy of electric carts, bought the Stewart Golf Q Follow.

I own a clicgear 3.5 as well for a few years and am really happy with it.. friends had other brands and they broke over time (partly their own fault), and they moved to the CG as well and like them since.. I did buy some of the accessories and especially when playing in winter or rain, the wheel-cover can be really handy to not get your car dirty..

cheers Chris

Here is a pic, the other one was too big to upload.  One thing I found odd, the strap to hold the umbrella next to the cart is a tad too small.  So I had to just put it in the umbrella holder on the handle the whole time.  I’ll put a bigger strap on there at some point.  Other than that, the cart was great and fits the new bag much better.  Lying flatter was no problem either, just had to organize my clubs a different way and it is fine.

Agree on TGW. I admit the Clic looks great but I could not pull the trigger on the price. I found a TGW Tour Pro for a bit less than $150 on sale that is apparently a knockoff of another known name. Has worked great into year 3 playing in all conditions at least 2-3 times a week.

Sooo… update.  I’ve been using the Speedcart GX about 2 months now, and there are a couple things I’ve noticed with the cart that I’m not thrilled about.  I’ve been paying really close attention to the differences in this cart and my friend’s Clicgear 3.5… and ultimately wound up with a Clicgear 4.0 for Father’s Day.

- Speedcart falls backwards pretty easily when going up hill.  If I let it run free a little, when it comes to an upslope it falls backwards onto the ground.  And not with a ton a speed either.  This didn’t happen with my MicroCart.  I frequently use an umbrella, so it does of course add weight to that side of the cart.  But… for me the resolve of not using an umbrella doesn’t work (I need the relief from the sun).  And I’m not going to add a 5lb weight to the front of the cart either.

- the umbrella holder on the Speedcart constantly comes loose.  The thread is no longer built into the handle, it goes through the handle and can be removed.  I guess the benefit is you can replace it easily if it becomes stripped (which didn’t happen in all the years with my MicroCart), which is good.  But a giant pain in the rear to bring a screwdriver with you in order to tighten it throughout the round.  No issues with the Clicgear umbrella holder coming loose.

- adjusting the handle height down on the Speedcart, it adjusts the entire base of the cart.  With the Clicgear you can adjust only the handle and it doesn’t impact the rest of the cart.

- the top bag rest of the Speedcart is not very adjustable.  Bags fit, but not as nicely as you’d want them to.  The top bag rest on the Clicgear 4.0 is very adjustable, I’m pretty impressed how much they put into it.  The Clicgear would definitely fit a much larger selection of bags.

Now for the initial thoughts on the Clicgear 4.0 that are maybe not as good as the Speedcart.  I will disclose I’ve only used the Clicgear one time, on Father’s Day, on a pretty flat course.

- the 4.0 is definitely heavier than the Speedcart.  That said, it’s not extreme and pushes through the grass just fine.  We’ll see how the weight shakes out on hillier terrain.

- the 4.0 put up and takedown isn’t quite as fast as the Speedcart.  But it’s still easy and quick once you get used to it.

- the 4.0 doesn’t seem as stable on side hills.  I have yet to see if there is the same issue as the Speedcart going up hill.

Initially, the Clicgear 4.0 has benefits over the Sun Mountain Speedcart GX.  After I get a couple more months in with the Clicgear, I’ll share any additional thoughts.  After one round, I do feel pretty good about it.

    • Day 2: Did some work on priority piece with 7-iron, and then some work on driver, just static setup stuff and some slower rehearsal swings, no balls.
    • I really got caught up writing today -- that's most of what I did from lunchtime until about 9.  That's good news for me professionally, since I got a lot of writing done, but not great for me in terms of my club championship that begins on Friday   But hey, I had a few minutes to practice, I made use of them. Day 155.  A half dozen each of quarter PW, quarter 8I, full swing 6-Iron.  Real balls, indoors, off a mat, into a net. 
    • Day 14: Today I practiced three times, each about 10-15 minutes, in the morning, before dinner, and before bed. Each time it was the same thing, swings from A2 to P6 or whatever the club horizontal after impact is. It's extremely frustrating to do this and continue to have a shut club face. I tried presetting at the delivery position, where I _know_ the face is correct, and I still find some way to shut it coming to impact. My belief is that it's excessive arm or forearm rotation that I do without knowing it, but I'm not sure. I need to record some of these swings and look. When I swing in a mirror, I know I do it "correctly," but those aren't real swings where I'm hitting a ball. There is a parasite in there somewhere, and I have to find it.
