I just started using a backpack for mountain courses, after I once said I'd never use more than a shoulder bag, so maybe a cart is in my future.

I am in the minor bad shoulder club then.

I still need to convert what I have into a backpack ability Cart, it is a fishing backpack with seat currently. I have the handle from an old metal broom, now I need a way to attach the handle and have it swivel or come off when done, and then buy and put on some training wheels made more for gravel roads, then finally put on some kind of posts in the front. It would help with my shoulder and in really bad parts of a course those few holes that some seem to have, I could backpack the cart.

I have the same thought. Since i don't play many tournaments, I choose not to waste garage space on a cart and I just sit on the ground at tourneys.

That is what I thought but I bring or used to bring a stool for tournaments. Now with my modified fishing seat with built in backpack, I no longer have to worry about leaving the stool which I did at a tournament that had the small burrs so bad that the socks I had for the tournament went in the garbage after, Clash at the Corn Palace in 2008. I was playing with a group and left stool at one hole and had to run back to get it electing to tee of last due to my problem. Now I have a stool all the time not having to worry about needing a stool if I ever play in a large group or need to wait for some reason on vacation.

Love my UP Rebel! So comfortable. However, one of my regular playing partners has a Zuca and he swears by it. As you say, each to his own.

I think the market will continue to grow. Disc Golf growth really accelerated in the 2000’s. A lot of those players (like me) are now old enough to feel that bag getting pretty heavy through a full day of tourney play.

Plus: the quality of carts has gotten way higher, and there’s not really any stigma attached to it anymore. I think it used to be an exclusively old guy thing so there was a hesitation for people to get one. Now they’re everywhere.

I still don’t have one, but I could see getting one in a few years especially for long league and tourney rounds.

Part of that is Pro players like Ricky using carts when sponsored by Innova when better carts came out in 2010's and the Dynamic Disc carts as well as then other pro's on the Dynamic disc /Latitude 64 teams to show that even younger players can use a cart and it is not a weakness. Also seeing cart styles get better so nobody has to have the stigma of using a homemade cart or that odd Gotta Go Gotta Throw thing.

That being said, I love my cart for competitive rounds
I hear ya. i carry the same amount for either, maybe 1 more specialty disc depending on the course (ie. roller, thumber, super understable, extra throwing putter)
