Default Best cart currently?

I am looking into getting a disc golf cart. Getting closer and closer to 40 so a little less carrying around certainly wont hurt. Specially since I take 3-4 liters of water on a usual sommer afternoon round.

Anyway, I see lots of different carts coming out lately. Can somebody give me a little overview? I am kinda lost.

I want a comfortable one with built in seat and long lasting production quality. Room for a jacket, a speaker and a cooler are bonus points.

Past edit time: I started thinking about it when i saw a friend use a big hyzer cart. It looked really well made and useful but it seems they are no longer in production.

Only two I know of are zuca and Delta carts. The rest I think are just carts to put your bag on. These two are made to actually house your discs. I've been comparing them lately myself so I'll share my thoughts

Zuca
- backpack style loading, but with two levels
- can hold a handful more discs I think
- has less non-disc storage unless you buy accessories, adding to the cost of the cart...
- but the cart costs only $300 compared to the $400 Delta, so if you don't need the storage you're in the clear, and if you do it brings you to the same price point.
- only real downside is people say the zuca is a bit more tippy because it's taller.
- has two bottle holders that are adjustable and can hold 40oz hydroflasks.
- is a touch taller but has a smaller seat
- has a multi-putter pocket on the side, or you can buy a putter pocket accessory for the handle and use that pouch (which is sizeable) for a light jacket or towels, etc.

Delta
- top loading disc storage
- seems like it holds a few less than the zuca
- has the putter pocket in the hard lid on the disc storage area, so you can only fit one putter in there. Most people I know carry at least two putters. You can get an accessory putter pocket to put on the handle. I noticed that's what a lot of people do and they keep a towel in the lid putter pocket.
- has more storage to begin with for the higher price point
- doesn't have bottle holders. Only has a cooler that can hold I think six cans, so that might be 3 plastic water bottles I'm guessing. Seems like I'd have to add bottle holders.
- is a touch lower but still normal seating height, has a wider seat.

Personally I keep switching which one I'll get, but I think zuca wins out right for me personally. I'm not positive I need a lot of storage so I can keep it at the lower cost if I want. It comes with bottle holders. It holds more discs which I'm more likely to need personally than non-disc storage. It has a better handle in my opinion.

My concern with the whole idea of a cart is how they perform on hills (are they stable enough to not tip over... the Delta seems like it might tip less than the zuca), and that I still need a backpack depending on the course terrain. I have mainly wooded courses where I am, and they usually have a lot of elevation and steep hills. Just honestly not sure how useful a cart will be if it's a big hassle all the time.

I do, however, want to get all this weight off my back...

I haven't had an opportunity to trial the newer carts on the market. I'm still very happy with my Gotta Go Throw cart. The cart/bag combo is a bit heavy if you're having to carry it up and down rough segments of a course but otherwise very comfortable to use. I've had my cart for 3 years now and it's held together very well. I sprayed the fabric cover for seat and backrest in 5-6 coats of rubber coating the first day I had it. I've also loosely stitched bottom of backrest with paracord to increase available storage. Bluetooth speaker sits in mini pocket of bag and iphone sits in card holder of backrest. I don't miss carrying my bag at all. Plenty of room for six pack cooler behind bag when needed as well. Good luck with your search.

Are these really the only two models out there? Seems everything I find online is just about these two.

I have always scoffed at the idea of a cart for disc golf and generally been unimpressed with those i have seen. One of my friends recently got the Delta though and I must admit that thing is sweet- handles rough terrain like a champ and seems very sturdy.
