Clicgear 3.0 PushCart

21 posts in this topic

Hey Fellas,

I am in the market for a pushcart.  I have been researching a few models (Sun Mountain, Bagboy, and caddytech) but it appears the clicgear is the grand daddy of them all.  If you have any experience with this model let me know and if you could post the pros and cons I would appreciate it.  Hit em straight!!!

Use a Sun Mountain Speed Cart. Local course can be rough on equipment but so far the cart looks to be as tough as a coffin nail. Easy to unfold, nice bag clamping system and very easy to push.

I just had to go through this myself.  I'd purchased one of the TourTrek carts from Golfsmith about a year ago.  Last Saturday was making the turn and the rear tension cable snapped and the cart collapsed.  It didn't surprise me too much since I'd noticed the cable had begun to wear, but man, was hoping the cart would make it at least a year.  Guess that's what I get for spending $80 on it.

Anyways, after digging and digging, decided on the Clicgear.  Love the accessories, the one year warranty is good, and there are tons of replacement parts available from Clicgear if something does break.  I love that the drink holder goes on the side of the cart as apposed to the center console.  That was a pet peeve of mine with the old cart.  My bag always sat right in front of that slot, so couldn't really use it for anything.  I also wanted a cart that included an umbrella holder.  Playing in 100 degree weather with no umbrella sucks.

Sun Mountain MicroCart here. I wanted a cart with tiny dimensions to fit into the car boot but also fancied trying a 4 wheel. Also came in at half the price of a CG. Very happy with my purchase indeed!

I just ordered a new 3.0 cart for $170 shipped.  PM me if you want the seller details.  I saved over $40+ bucks when you consider the sales tax I didn't have to pay onto top of the $199 MSRP.

After much research I have ordered the Clicgear 3.0 golf cart.  I have seen that there are countless accessories that you can buy for this model cart.  For any of you that own or have owned this golf cart, are there any of these accessories that have helped you out or are worth the extra money?

Thanks in advance.

I have Clicgear 2.0 and the one accessory I love is the adjustable umbrella holder. The cart comes with a basic umbrella holder but the adjustable one sits an inch or two higher and the angle is, well, adjustable. I'm a big fan using an oversized golf umbrella on sunny days. The only other add-on I got was an hanging insulated drink holder which I use for a water bottle but if I didn't have it there is a place for the bottle on the handle so it would get warm faster.

I just purchased the same push cart on Rockbottomgolf.com. They have a name your own price going on. I got it for $180, added a few more item, got the total over $199.99 and got free shipping. Not a bad deal.

Purchased a Clicgear 3.0 on clearance at Dick's Sporting Goods last winter and have used it twice now.  I have to say I love it and enjoy using it more than riding in a cart (or carrying a bag).  I lost the umbrella holder and the ranger brought it out to me the only problem I had with it.  From reading everything I could on these carts (I even had the salesman at Golfsmith hold the front wheel on both the Sun Mountain version and a Cligear 3 they had in the store while I spun the wheels to see which one spun the longest to check the bearings).  I would take either one of these carts as they are very well built but sales price was what made my decision to buy  I almost lost it in the lake but caught it as it began to roll so now I make sure to set the brake on a hill.  Pushing a heavy bag with extra water and snacks included is near effortless and going down the hill I let it loose and it comes to a gentle stop at the bottom.  I walk 9 holes and run across balls the folks in front roll right on by without seeing them and just enjoy the sceanery while pushing the thing around.  Watching the guys on my league pulling their carts and having done so in the past I will say this is the best investment I have ever made next to my golf clubs.  I will be back out Monday morning and can't wait.

I love my ClicGear cart.  I bought 2 of them and my daughter uses the orange one. Anyway, mine probably has about 1,000 miles in it without any issues, Some items began to show a little wear due to age and use, nothing that would make it nonfunctional but, I decided to "pimp my cart". I installed new grips, a steering knob that screws into the umbrella mount (This does make it even easier to maneuver) and I installed matching colored wheels...

Good job on the customizing.  What do you think about adding one of those seats?  I am also thinking of buying one of those folding Golfsmith seats and a cooler for those hot days ahead.  Glad to hear you have so much use on this cart and hoping to get out three days a week (retired) and enjoying life with mine.

Thanks for the compliment.. Nah, I don't need a seat, we move along fairly quick and I'd be wasting time deploying it and putting it back. Plus, my playing partners and most of the other club members would make fun of me for using it and I'd probably pick up a new moniker. LOL

Most courses around here don't allow coolers but, I can store 4 bottles of water in the insulated pocket of my bag and carry two in the holders on the cart. For those hot days I freeze two or three to keep the ones in the bag cool and while I "nurse" a cool one on the cart the other on the cart is thawing out. Once thawed out a bit I drink some off that one and dump the warmer water of the other in it to let the ice cool it down again.

Our foursome normally play 5 days a week early morning and I'm the only one not retired (I can though). At times I'll also play a round or two late in the afternoon on the weekends.

I just retired my clicgear 2.0 with about 3000 miles on it.  I went with the sun mountain micro cart as its replacement only because I had a pro shop credit and they had one sitting there.  You will not be disappointed with that purchase

    • There are several statements that I disagree with which I feel are important to discuss: All golf balls do not go about the same distance.  A low compression, 2-piece Surlyn covered model will launch higher and with less spin than a 5-piece, high compression urethane covered model which will result in a noticeable difference in distance off the tee.  Dean even stated in another answer "The soft golf ball market has taken off due to the lower spinning balls means players can be longer in distance." Regarding balls for different swing speeds and compression:  3) Bridgestone (and I think Callaway) has come out with tour caliber balls for players who swing under 105mph. Is it possible to design a tour caliber ball for a specific segment of swing speed or is this just mostly a marketing thing?  DEAN: The whole swing speed story to me is one of the most over-rated stories in golf. Companies force or teach golfers to play low compression balls so their low swing speed can compress the ball. The problem with this is that low compression balls have the lowest spin in all shots, so they are pushing players to play a ball with no performance at all… and when you need that spin around the green, it's not there…            I almost don't know where to start on this one.  The concept of designing golf balls based on swing speeds doesn't teach or force players to use a low compression ball...it's about using a ball that has the appropriate compression for your swing speed.  Some players will have better results with a higher compression ball, others will have better results with a lower compression.  Keep in mind, there is a difference between "lower compression" and "low compression".  Most of the urethane tour balls have a compression rating somewhere between the mid 70s to mid 90s.  Tour models like the Chrome Soft, B330-RX and B330-RXS are in the mid 60s, which is lower.  Balls like the Supersoft and e6 are in the upper 30s and 40s, which is considered low.  Dean's statement that "low compression balls have the lowest spin on all shots" is somewhere between a little misleading and flat-out wrong.  It's true that a lower compression ball will spin less (and launch higher) than a firmer ball on full shots.  But on short game shots around the green, the ball is not compressed.  On pitch shots, chip shots, and greenside bunker shots for example,    the only part of the ball that is being activated is the cover. Notice on this chart that the lowest compression ball is very close to the highest spinning, and the lowest spinning ball has almost the same compression rating!  The point is, compression has little to no affect on short game shots...the cover is the main factor.  All 4 of these models have a urethane cover, but the two that provide the most spin have softer covers.  To put this in context, the chart below was a test Golf Digest did in 2015 which shows the performance on a partial wedge shot (I think it was 40 yds) with most of the balls on the market at the time The different colors represented the price point.  These results don't match the first chart I posted exactly which can happen when player testing (this one shows the B330 has higher spin than the RXS). Is there a difference between the lower spinning "red dots" and the highest spinning?  Sure.  There should be though.  Golf balls are designed to have different types of performance for different types of players.  The B330-RX has the lowest spin among the red dot models, but that doesn't mean it's lacking in performance...it spins exactly how the ball designers intended it to, because not everyone wants/needs maximum spin.  Notice the e7...this is a high compression ball very comparable to the B330, but has very different spin characteristics. So again, higher compression doesn't mean higher spin around the green and lower compression doesn't necessarily mean low spin.  About the only thing that I could agree with Dean's comment on would be that all the ultra-low compression balls are Surlyn covered models designed for distance, so it's true that these balls have low spin on all shots and will not offer the same level of performance around the greens, but again, that has more to do with the cover than the compression.  The fact is, there are lower compression balls that perform at the highest level. The B330-RXS is the same type of ball as the Pro V1 in many respects, and performs just as well as, or even better for many players, so I'm surprised by his comments that fitting for swing speed is over-rated and lower compression balls have no performance.  That's like saying getting fit for the correct shaft flex is over-rated, and softer flex shafts don't perform as well as stiffer shafts!  Does anyone consider the Dynamic Gold S-300 to be a lower performing shaft than the Dynamic Gold X-100?  No, of course not. They are designed to do the same thing, but because some players don't swing as fast as others the softer flex will give them better results, just like the B330-RXS is the equal to the B330-S, but will fit players who don't swing as hard better. I'm also not on-board with the opinion that fitting with a driver is a "mistake" and when testing to choose a ball based on 100 yds and in.  I'm not saying that short game performance isn't important, but wow...to claim that testing with a driver is a mistake is ridiculous.  I'll make a simple point on this...anyone can hit good wedge shots with a Pro V1 or B330 or Z-Star.  Fast swingers, slower swingers, high handicappers, low handicappers...it doesn't matter, they can all get good results on wedge shots.  Does that mean that's the ball they should play, and it will work equally as well for the other aspects too?  No.  A wedge can mask any issues in performance because of the loft and backspin, but the driver exaggerates issues.  The same players who hit respectable wedge shots with various tour balls might struggle to keep shots in play or lose potential distance. And before anyone tries to use the old "the driver is used 14 times a round, but half of the shots are inside of 100 yds" argument...save it.  If you play a high spin ball and you're struggling to hit the fairway with your tee shots, that ball will not help you save shots around the green.  Too much spin for players who can't control it is worse than a lower spinning model. Sorry Dean...not trying to blast you or anything, just putting in my two cents.  Ok, maybe more like four cents!
    • So......Is this your point @Jack Watson?
    • https://thesandtrap.com/b/clubs/titleist_716_ap1_review My review for the site is above. I've been using them since writing this review. Excellent clubs. One watch out is with short game shots with the PW and GW. They will go a bit farther than a corresponding chip or pitch with the equivalent wedge. The ball feels like it jumps off the face with good contact. So be careful with that.
    • Thanks for all the comments. I realize change is always hard but single length, lie and weight make so much sense to me. I am going to build a set of Value Golf clubs and see what happens. As improve I may go back to normal but who knows.  I think it will be better for learning the overall game. Which in my opinion and observance needs a lot of help. In my other hobbies that required learned skills it was easy to find groups to help you with the skills and drills to improve them. Businesses that the hobby supported held seminars and workshops covering all aspects. Trying to find help, other than paid lessons, is impossible, at least in my area.
