Sun Mountain Reflex Cart?

Recommended Posts

Good afternoon, golfers, on this warm and sunny day.

 

After carrying and pulling, i'm now in the market for a nice, funky 'push' cart.

 

To cut a long story short my playing pal has the 3.5+, so no can do on copying that idea! Damn him. Can think of nothing worse than wandering down fairways with matching cart and possibly matching trousers.......

 

He's a degree educated scientist who plunges into the physics of stuff and became obsessed with 3 wheel trolleys. His take on the subject was a large front wheel was better for it's rolling tendencies, less resistance, etc, blah, blah, blah......

 

I'm liking the look of the 'Reflex' with it's 4 wheels.

 

Is there really any difference with 4 wheels versus 3 and do the smaller front wheels make a difference? In other words, will i have half died when i've finished pushing it 27 holes, up hills?

 

Much obliged to you.

 

Also, as an edit, the seeming lack of strap, on top bag bracket, concerns me. Do the 'jaws' take anything securely?

I posted for asking for any reviews on the Reflex when I was looking for a cart last winter. Not too popular around here, maybe the price tag is steep compared to the standard - 3.5+ I ended up with the 3.5+

 

I do like it though, I got to play around with a floor model, you should try it before you buy - the handle config, positions may not work for you. Super easy to fold/unfold. Lightweight so it should be very nimble around the course. Very high ratings on MGS - IIRC one of the top rated carts based on their criteria. I can't post the reviews but google it and you should be able to find it. You do have a bottom strap though, I that better than just all jaws for other Sun Mountain carts.

 

Generally 4 wheelers do fold up to a smaller package and I don't think death is around the corner pushing up hills unless you already have issues.. Other 4 wheelers I considered were the Clic Model 8 and Bagboy Quad.

I recieved my reflex cart today. Got it for a steal from rbg over the weekend. It folds up quite easy to a small size which I'm pleased about. I put my bag on it and with the lower strap attached the bag felt reasonably stable. I may try to get a top strap for it if it seems loose on the course but in the house all seems well on that front. The only gripe I have is that the attachment point where the handle meets the frame is all plastic and it flexes some when pushing down on the handles to lift the front wheels. I guess I expected a little bit more solid construction for the price they get for them. For what I paid, I'm sure my back will be happy and I'm confident sun mountain will take care of it if anything goes awry. I'll have to update once I get some on course time.
