Alphard Duo DX: Excellent compromise for a bag / cart combination
May 31, 2014
I've used the Duo DX for the past 10 months; originally bought to combine a cart & cart bag into one unit to reduce storage fees at my country club (i.e. one stall for both versus having to pay for a separate cart and bag). Overall the design works well, providing ample storage for clubs and gear and it takes up less space than a separate cart & bag in either a trunk, garage or basement. Cart is not as solid as a Clicgear or Sun Mountain cart (I own both the 3.0 & Speedcart) but it gets the job done; in short, I can live with the "flex" and occasional course corrections as a tradeoff for the compactness and ease in setup & breakdown. I expect the follow-on version will correct some of the initial minor flaws of the model I own.
Pros:Quick setup, compact size for a cart & bag combo
Cons:Some flex in frame, no ability to "tweak" the alignment
