Can I ask what the $500 gets you that isn't already on the significantly cheaper GoCart?

I have checked both out, priced notwithstanding, the Delta would be the way I'd go between them. Much sturdier seat. No need for a bag. Enclosed. Breaks down a bit easier. Better feel in pushing and pulling. Those are just a few things I notice in difference.

However, price is withstanding is the real world. Is it worth over double the cost? -- that's a subjective call. Although, for all I know, there may be a substantial difference in the quality of the build materials. I know I've had concerns about how long a Go Cart would really last, and I have less concern about that with the Delta Cart. It really does seem like it would last many, many years.

But.... while I'd love to have one, I have no plans to shell out the dough. If they got the price point down to the $250 range, I would run, not walk, to my nearest dealer. In the meantime I will continue to use my $10-garage-sale 1960s-era Bag Boy.

Some of you have no problem plopping down 300+ for a bag. Why not 500 for a cart? The cart is much more useful, and will (should) last forever.

With that being said, it's way too rich for my blood too. Although, I really could have used one yesterday since between my brother and I we drank 4 liters of water, which gets heavy carrying around in a bag. My home course is well suited for a cart, and many guys have them.

It gets you a well designed, ready-to-go cart that doesn't need a bag to carry your discs.

A GoCart plus an average large bag is going to cost 300+ for most people. I think if they could get the price in the 300-350 range they would sell a ton of them, but I don't know the details of production costs. Right now I would imagine the carts are pretty expensive to produce as it's mostly custom and production numbers are probably pretty low.

I realize this cart will mostly get compared to the GoCart since its one of the only other carts on the market. However, I think they are significantly different products and each have their own advantages.

FULL DISCLOSURE: I'm friends with one of the owners and received my cart as a sponsorship. I will do my best to be objective and helpful with any questions.

This is something I would love to have but $500 is pretty steep.
I didn't see any mention of a place to put a golf umbrella. Does it have some way to hold one either closed or open?

I've seen a lot of DIY carts here in MN, most guys claim they can make them for a hundred bucks but they're not nearly as nice as these.

It's in the accessories. Holds one both closed and open.

I haven't seen this in use so I can't comment on its effectiveness.

There is a hole in in the bracket where the pole mounts that the end of the umbrella rests in when closed. You can then strap the handle to the pole if you don't use the special holder.
