Style, Simple, Compact, Almost Perfect
December 18, 2019
The Clicgear/Rovic RV15 Push Cart was shipped fast and received well packed and protected. I was a little concerned about too many �€œwhistles and bells�€ with it being a new version. To me, more parts, options, etc. just means more things to fix or replace in time. I was very happy upon setting up my push cart, that it is minimalistic in design and features. It includes a generous storage area up top that will fit your gps, phone, keys, etc., The lid has a place for your scorecard and pencil. There is an umbrella holder, a bottle holder, and a clamp unit for storing 3 gold balls (I�€™ll probably remove this).
The portability is awesome. About a third of the size of my 10 year old sun mountain push cart.
Set up and break down is easy - even though just a bit �€œclumsy.�€ You only need 3 steps: The handle lever, the base button, the front wheel button, fold it up and you�€™re good to go.
A nice feature is the option to adjust the cart balance. After you set it up - including your bag w/clubs, you may find the cart �€œfavors�€ the left or right. With a simple adjustment - you can straighten it out.
The front wheel has a swivel or locked option. I�€™m still getting used to the cart but find that the locked option is best for on grass and the swivel option is best for on pavement or cart path. The swivel front wheel is a bit �€œsquirrely�€ for my preference, but it works the way it�€™s supposed to. The locked position is needed when you really want to �€œlaunch�€ the cart - you know, kind of shove it down the fairway 15-20 yards? My old cart would run 25-30 yards. But with the new molded thick wheels on the new model, it won�€™t �€œtake off�€ like the older spoke wheels.
Overall I rate it a 4 because it does the job, has a compact design when folded up, is simple and clean in design and concept, and it is definitely a �€œhead-turner�€ with its tubular frame, sleek style, and bold wheels... people were going out of their way to say; that�€™s so cool, where did you get that?�€
My only hesitation to not give it a full 5 stars is the front swivel wheel seems a little too loosey-goosey for me (but maybe that�€™s how it should be or it can be adjusted), and the bag installation process is a bit of a hassle. While the top strap just gets pulled around the bag and easily attaches to a �€œhook�€ on the opposite side, the bottom strap is �€œattached�€ on both sides, forcing you to bend over, pull up on your bag, pull the strap under, then up and around the bag. Not sure why they just didn�€™t use the same strap concept for the bottom as they did for the top strap.
Bottom Line: �€œSWEET�€ PUSH CART! And it seems well built for many hundreds of rounds of golf... if you love to walk the course, why not do it with a great cart and some added �€œcool�€ factor?
Front swivel a bit loose
Bottom strap positioning kind of a hassle
