And they will be offering financing too.

Just $99 down and $10/month for 36 months.

Am I really the only one who thinks these look ridiculous? Would you REALLY want to be lugging this thing around on a course full of rough terrain? Or even in general?

And then once you throw in the 500 dollar price tag....bahahahahah. Looks like MAYBE 50 bucks went into making these things.... Is that a re-purposed Domino's heatwave bag on the bottom?

The designers of these carts are missing the point when it comes to older players, like myself, who want to use a cart. Having the luxury of wheels is nice but we don't want to be bending over all the time to get our discs out of our bags/carts. Bring the disc holder up about 4 feet.
I carry a 3 legged stool with me all the time, that's where my bag sits when I take it off.

And because this is DGCR I feel I need to say:
I understand I still have to bend over to pick my discs up off the ground during my rounds of golf.

You run into the issue of raising the center of gravity though when you bring the weight up. Unless you've got something like a cooler below for balance, I've seen homemade carts with the discs up high tip over really easily.

To your second point, check out the scepter, it's a disc retriever with a suction cup so you don't have to bend over to pick them up.

That is a design issue I agree but one that can be over come when they're selling the cart for $500.00.
I have one I'm working on for myself that will be that high with nothing more than the weight of the bag and discs. A 5lb counter weight at the bottom helps the tipping over issue somewhat.

Thanks for the tip on the scepter. I could also use that for a cane.

I have a jogging stroller I bought 2nd hand that's ready to go as is but I haven't used that yet, it was $50.
I'm still new at being old so breaking out all these gadgets old people use ain't easy.

I guess my disposable income to free time ratio is too low because i just don't see how they could see how they could sell many at that price point.

I'm finding that my back issues are caused by repeatedly picking up and putting down my bag, along with manipulating it as I walk. Bending down isn't so much the problem. I've used a cart similar to this one, as well as a modified ball golf cart, and found this style to be the most favorable to me.
