I used the excuse of sitting down during long rounds as my main excuse to buy a cart, but deep down, I did it as a fad thing because I wanted to be among the first in my two groups I frequent to have one.

In the end, while I do use it to sit during really long tournament rounds, the primary reason I break out the cart on those non-long round tournaments is to have a steady platform when I film. Otherwise, I still have two bags I use; the Grip for everyday and the Lat E3 for the league, normal tournament rounds, or where the cart cannot go.

I do not regret getting the cart in general, but I would have been served getting the backpack cart instead of the full setup with the AT.

I definitely think that carts are going to keeping gaining in popularity. Obviously a cart can be course specific. The majority of courses that I play, especially for B-Tier tournaments, are cart friendly.

I'd been using different bags since 2004 & have just gotten to a point (& age) where it's been wearing me down. Just got a Crosslap Cubus cart & have really been noticing how much better I feel at the end of a round. The key was really just getting used to figuring how to setup the inside of the cart & keep the weight centered in the right places.

Isn't the sexiest looking cart but works for me.

Carts are a matter of personal preference, whether someone feels like schlepping a bag around, or pulling a cart around has absolutely no bearing on their skill as a player. If someone enjoys the game, and wants to throw some $$ at it, that's 100% their business. I don't agree with the statement that only highly skilled players should use a cart

When did I say only highly skilled players should use them?

I am 70+ years old and have the expected physical issues for someone my age, knees, back, etc, and all I play is casual rounds with friends. I like to keep my number of discs carried down to 12 or less and just really learn how to utilize the ones that I have. I don't think that I will ever get a cart.

They make models of carts that do not have a seat on them, at least 2 from each from different brands that I can think of.

I remember for the longest time even with the odd cart from Gotta Go Gotta Throw, this style you show but modified more for single strap bags was what most people used, until the dolly type pull carts with the removable bag were being made with a seat on them then those started getting used more until actual disc golf carts with seats on them became available.

I agree that 12 is about all anyone needs but if you ever play competitively at all, even amongst friends, it’s a good idea to have back ups.

These days, I either carry a shoulder bag with about 14 discs or roll a cart that allows for back ups for everything and some practice putters.

If I ever went back to a cart, it would be push, not pull.
