Clicgear vs Bag Boy Quad XL?
I have a Clicgear 3.0 that I am not enamored with. In that past 5 years, I've used it about a dozen times and I normally play about once a month (usually riding), but I've joined a league now that will be playing every week and require walking--so I really want to get my push cart figured out.
My complaints with the Clicgear are:
- It doesn't hold my Ping Pioneer bag very well. It works a lot better with my old Ogio stand bag. With the Pioneer, the clubs get squished into the cart handle.
- The umbrella holder doesn't work well--and I have the extra adjustable one. It's just awkward.
- It's complicated to setup and take down. I always have to think through it, and it's awkward.
- While I have the drink holder attachment, again I find it awkward and doesn't hold large bottles.
For item 1, I could purchase the Staff Bag attachment, but it's currently only available directly from Clicgear for $28 plus shipping---which is probably $35-40. I've also heard that it makes the setup and takedown even more troublesome. In addition, it sounds like it moves the weight more forward--and since you have to raise the front wheel to make any kind of turn that would make it more tiresome to push.
I can pickup a Bag Boy Quad for $100, which sounds like it might solve many of the issues I have with the Clicgear. Mostly because they are supposed to be super easy to setup and take down, and they hold the clubs more upright than the clicgear.
What are your thoughts?
On a side note, when you talk about side loading your clubs in your bag for a push cart, do you load your long clubs on the right or on the left (when looking into the bag from behind the cart)?
