Which push cart is the best?

Which carts are the most maneuverable?  Which offer consoles with massive storage space? Which carts hand cart bags as well as carry bags? Which fold up light and tight? That's quite a few questions, but don't worry, we have the answers.

Once again we have assembled the available push carts to determine which one is truly the Most Wanted. Like with our club tests, the title of Most Wanted must be earned head-to-head. These twelve push carts were put through a series of #datacratic tests and assessments to determine which one is deserving of the Most Wanted moniker.

Remember, performance is everything. Company names don't matter. Past performance is irrelevant. It's a new year and a new test.

How We Test

MostWantedCart2015-10

Comparative scoring is calculated based upon ten measured characteristics that fall under two general headings: Portability and Playability. Totals for each cart are determined and the carts are ranked on an overall 100 point scale to determine the Most Wanted Push Cart. For more details, visit our How We Test Carts page.

Results: Most Wanted Push Cart

Winner: Most Wanted Push Cart

Bagboy Tri-Swivel 2

BagBoyTriSwivel2-MWL

The BagBoy Tri-Swivel 2 may represent our first ever Most Wanted title defense. The cart just hits on everything that golfers want in a push cart.

It gets high marks for portability, has tons of console room for all of your gear, and it turns within its own footprint.

The ability to lock the front wheel in straight position, or let it freewheel, from the console is key to its versatility. It’s not the cheapest cart we tested, but you definitely get what you pay for with the Tri-Swivel 2.

The Features You Want:

  • Amazing maneuverability from the swiveling front wheel
  • Wide and stable wheel base
  • Huge covered console and under console gear bag
  • Relatively lightweight and compact when folded
  • Velcro strap system securely holds any golf bag

Runners-Up: Most Wanted Carts

Sun Mountain Reflex

SunMountainReflex-MWL

The Sun Mountain Reflex is a marvel of engineering and definitely deserving of its Most Wanted: Runner-Up position. The Reflex has the smallest folded volume, and yet feels quite large and stable when unfolded. It is very easy to unfold and it is the most adjustable cart in the group as well.

You can adjust the console height, front wheel tracking, strap position, and push handle position. The bag fit of the Reflex is better than the other Sun Mountain carts mainly due to the addition of a strap at the base and undulations on the top bracket as opposed to smooth plastic. The Reflex’s folding and unfolding simplicity is only surpassed by the truly automatic folding of the EasyPal.

The Features You Want:

  • Highly maneuverable
  • Tiny folded volume
  • Best of class adjustability
  • Simple folding and unfolding
Clicgear 3.5+

ClicGear3.5Plus-MWL

Yet again Clicgear's 3.5+ earns a top position in our Most Wanted test. This cart hits most of the marks and slips only because it's slightly larger and heavier than other carts.

Folding and unfolding the Clicgear 3.5+ can be initially confusing, but veteran users will tell you that it soon becomes intuitive. Year after year, model after model, the Clicgear remains a top performer in the category.

The Features You Want:

  • Ample console
  • Excellent maneuverability
  • Excellent strap and bracket system fits a wide range of bags
  • Solid construction promotes longevity

Most Innovative Push Cart

GolferPal EasyPal

GolferPalEasyPal-MWL

The EasyPal opens and closes at the push of a button. While one might dismiss this as an unnecessary extravagance, a cart with a complicated folding/unfolding mechanism is likely a cart that doesn’t get purchased.

The EasyPal folds and unfolds automatically via a motor and a rechargeable battery. It also happens to be an excellent push cart. The battery and motor do add to its weight a bit, but it is still lighter than some other carts. Once unfolded, it performs as well as or even better than its non-automatic competitors. Also, should the battery die when the cart is unfolded, it can be folded manually.

The Features You Want:

  • Automatic folding and unfolding
  • Ample console
  • Excellent maneuverability
  • Small folded volume
