Any thoughts on the Clicgear Rovic?

I have narrowed my search to clicgear or the TGW 3 wheel player push cart. 

After more research I like that if something brakes on the clicgear it can be replaced. As unlikely as it is a wheel brakes(a cart once ran over an broke one) you can replace. Basically the lure of clicgear is the body will last a very long time and you can purchase other parts. That is huge considering you don’t need to throw it out. 

Was not able to edit. RVC1 to be specific for the Clicgear Rovic.

I don't find that to be true at all.

I wonder if something was up with the axles or something on the CG.

Thing is, I've had the same experience with multiple (4+) Clicgears. I'm not knocking it as a quality unit, it's just that I feel it's clunky and heavy compared to Sun Mountain Speeds. Subjective, but to me very significant.

I pulled the trigger on the Rovic RVC1 3 wheel cart. Poking around on Amazon and it was at $124 today.  Worst case if I do not like it, i will return it. Thoughts on the Rovic? Anyone use it or know someone who uses it? Thanks for all the replies.

The Rovic cart arrived today.  A nice small cart. Not sure I like how the c130 bag fits on it.  
 

i will have to take another look at it. The top part of the cart where the bag goes in seem too small.

Here it is. Honest opinions does the bag fit? The height of the cart I think is throwing me off. 
 

Umbrella holder is in an odd spot.

Yes. The adapter where the umbrella goes is in the middle if the cart.  Once it is up it seems like it could be a bit annoying.

That’s where it is on many carts. The middle protects the most.

Is that umbrella holder removable?  After my cart blew over twice in a rain/windstorm with the umbrella up, spilling all my clubs, I removed the holder and never went back.  So much easier to wear a beanie, rain jacket, rain pants and a pair of rain gloves.  If I want to put up a sail to catch the wind I'll buy a darn sailboat.

Yes it screws in.

1st round with the Rovic. Initial thoughts. 
 

solid cart, 3 wheels are the way to go. The cup holder is a bit of a pain, hopefully it expands a bit. I will say due to the size of the holder no fluids spill. 

I am not sure I like the bag size for the cart but will get over it. 
 

Still no cart repels geese shit on the wheels. Ha

I ended up returning my C130. Did not like how big it was. Unnecessary for me to have that many pockets. Picked up a Sun Mountain 5.5 stand bag. It fits well on the RVC1 push cart.

@jmanbooyaa I'm glad you found a system that works for you. Personally, I love the C-130. It is soooooooo much better than my carry bag when I actually take a golf cart. That strap system really really works well. I don't even use the golf cart strap and my bag always stays pointing front and center. Love it.

Walking, however, is a different story. Since I bought my ClicGear 3.5+ though, I've wanted a cart bag. The C-130 fits perfectly on the Clicgear 3.5+. Here's a photo. If you look closely you may notice that I do have both the regular and the XL cup holders on the trolley. I actually like to use both. (Some things fit better in one than the other.)

The C-130 fits so well, I can actually access all of the pockets, yes, every single one of them while it's strapped to the Trolley. My old bag (a Nike carry bag) worked fine, but a couple of the pockets would have the zippers pinched off by the ClicGear straps. See photo here:

As I've mentioned before, I never had a clearance issue with the front wheel. But I guess other people have so you may want to confirm your bag does fit correctly if you are looking into getting a ClicGear 3.5+. … Which may be on sale soon, as the 4.0 is coming out.

Overall, I don't think there could be a better system for me. The C-130 is perfect for using a golf cart, riding a Finn Cycle or using the ClicGear 3.5+. Plus, both the C-130 and the ClicGear 3.5+ come in blue.

The bag only has clearance issues with the front wheel on some models where the "stand" mechanism is weird and the bottom of the bag can hang a decent bit lower because the bottom metal piece is "up" higher into the "stand" part of the bag.

I have a CaddyTek four wheel and am envious of one of the guys in my foursome that has a 3 wheel ClicGear.  It's all about the seat.

We play Torrey Pines often and for some reason they removed all the benches at the tee boxes.  For me it's a fairly stout walk (I'm 62) and we both got the seat attachement for our carts.  My seat is heavy and I have to realign my cart everytime I put it on.  The ClicGear seat is much lighter and less cumbersome.  

I've been waiting for my CaddyTek to breakdown to justify buying a ClicGear, but no luck on that so far.

Out of curiosity you should ask why they removed the benches. And that's a good testimonial for your CaddyTek...

    • Pretty large buck just chilling by the tee box...
    • 9/27/2020 - Pebble Beach Golf Links View this round on GAME GOLF Bucket-list stuff here.  I mean...this pic says it all: Some highlights: 1st Hole The tee shot is nerve-racking!  Lots of folks milling around watching...and it's awkward because you can't hit driver.  I NAILED it...smooth 3-hybrid, 226 yards, into the first cut on the right.  :)  Got a few "nice shots" from onlookers.  I hit into a deadly steep bunker but got it out and saved the bogey.  Whew.   4th Hole The first hole where you're right up next to the ocean.  It's seriously hard to concentrate.  I crushed my drive, right down the middle...my pitch shot was a little chunky but my lag from the fringe was within 5' and I sank the par putt. \   7th Hole Pictures don't do this one justice.  Standing on the tee...the temperature must have dropped 10 degrees just from the cool breeze...and it feels like you're on the edge of the world.  According to our caddie, we had a very odd breeze (towards the ocean) so it was playing like a 75 (!) yard shot.   I pulled my wedge a little, and hit it long...but managed to get up-and-down for one of the most memorable pars I'll ever make.   8th Hole This was my favorite hole on the course.  I mean...seriously...this was the view of my approach shot: I hit a perfect iron off the tee...but I got scared of the water on my approach and pulled it way left.  Hit a GREAT pitch shot from way above the hole and two-putted for bogey.   18th Hole After a 45 on the front nine, I sorta fell back to earth.  Played really badly on the "inland" holes.  My drive on 18 made up for it: I hit my best drive of the day.  271 yards, with a little draw, and almost carried the tree on the fly (from the white tees, but who's counting).   Even a topped 4-wood couldn't ruin it (I had to go for the green!)..and I sunk a 10-footer to end the round with a bogey.    
    • Yes it will help. Without being able to fully shift left and straighten the leg, it's going to be tough.
    • 9/26/20 - Spyglass Hill    View this round on GAME GOLF Spyglass is every bit as good as it's cracked up to be.  We teed off at 11am, and the marine layer still hadn't burned off, so the first few holes were surreal. The first tee shot is semi-blind (especially into the fog): I hit a great tee shot, and converted it into a par after CRUSHING a hybrid from the right rough and sinking a 7-footer.   The 4th hole was probably my favorite on the course. I was happy to save a bogey after pulling my approach to the left and getting lucky to even find it in the dunes. On #12, I made my second birdie in two days on a tough par-3...by drilling a 40-footer.  :)
    • 9/25/20 - Links at Spanish Bay View this round on GAME GOLF Absolutely amazing course.  This is the first hole...and it got better from there. I played OK.  I couldn't control my driver, and this course punishes you for that...so I took a lot of penalty strokes. Highlight of the round was a birdie on #13.  Tricky short par-3, with a tough pin.  Knocked it to 5', and sank the putt.
