Can anyone chime in on how much it weighs? Nothing shows in the website.

Disc Golf Nerd on youtube has his review up...didn't seem like he would recommend it other than for flat golf courses. Also said he had concerns about its wear long term due to plastic and lots of moving parts when it folds up. I was about to pull the trigger and get one soon but this has me rethinking it.

Me too

Are the other Rovic models made about the same?

I am pretty sure the RV1D is just their ball golf model modified to hold a DG bag. There weren't many reviews for the disc golf version so I read reviews on the original and didn't come across anything about it not holding up. My cart should be in this week or early next week. If the weather holds I will try to get it out and get a review up.

It is the ball golf cart. They modify it in house per order.

I have the Rovic.

It is a ball golf bag cart modified to carry disc golf bags and it is what I'd expect from a well-made golf bag cart.

It is extremely stable, I've took it on a course that had 45 degree slopes and extremely tight trails and it is a bit wide but fit reasonably well on narrow trails except when I had to carry it down about 100 feet on stairs (we were throwing from a tee on a ravine to other end).

The seat fits loosely like another poster mentioned - it is because it has to be loose in order to operate smoothly (without sticking) but it is stable enough that I wasn't concerned about falling off. I have Grip AX and it didn't interfere with the seat when I was sitting on it.

I loved the fact that I would be pushing instead of pulling it like Zucas because I'm 6-2 and have extremely long legs. My buddy has Zuca and has given up on it because he's as tall as I am and he constantly bumps his cart with his legs while walking.

The umbrella holder was slick but I was too tall (so I ended up being unable to see while pushing the cart because the umbrella was blocking my sightline). It was easily remedied by readjusting the handlebar. If you paid extra $25, you could get an adjustable umbrella holder which you could then adjust the angle.

All in all, I'm extremely happy with the Rovic. It felt sturdy and well-built. It handled very rough trails without any issues whatsoever. Ultimately, I decided that I wouldn't be using it on certain courses due to the steepness of hills that would kill just about anyone who attempt to bring a Rovic/Zuca/(fill in the blank) that are found in around Seattle area (Steillacoom, NAD Park and few others).
