Yes, LG, or some reason I always call it the XL. 300 lbs. Ridge has a stated 400 lb capacity.

Ridge is better for someone between 300-400 lbs, but if you plan on sitting...the LG is better for tall folks.

I like mine, but it weighs quite a bit. I have been using my Zuca Compact lately or carrying with my UPD Rebel.

I am going to drill holes in it to lighten the heft.

Is the weight an issue rolling it?

I was looking at the R3 and Zuca compact. Can you elaborate on why you are using the compact more and what it does better/worse than the R3?

Thanks!

I think he just means it’s a heavy load after adding discs and such, he isn’t wrong. It’s made of all aluminum. After loading it down it can get pretty heavy

Compared to the Compact Zuca, It is very noticeable while rolling in my opinion. Not so much a problem on flatter courses, but you can really feel it with hills and such.

One major positive is that you don't have the tip over problems as I do occasionally with the Zuca.

I can carry about the same amount of discs in both, with storage space left over on the R3 for towels and such on the inside of the cart (and it doesn't require a rainfly).

There is no doubt in my mind that the RR will last for years compared to the Zuca.

Only complaint is weight.

I think they both last as long as the wheels/bearings allow...its the only thing that will take abuse on both. One just cost 400$ more.

I personally can't justify the price tag of the R3.

You’re also paying for versatility, if you want to remove the r3 box you can unbolt it from the roller and throw a bag on it for much lighter weight. But yeah it can be hard to justify the price difference

I am finishing up year 4 on the Zuca disc golf cart, original 2 bay version. The weakest part is the button on the telescoping handle, it just wore out in 3 years which is pretty common.

While replacing that I decided on a new bags and wheels, and basically had a brand new cart 3 year later. The frame is built to last and everything else is replaceable at moderate cost. Handle $35, Insert bag $89 to $99 (depending on color), wheels $25.
