Well, being that I am actually miserable using them, it's pretty much true.

The only time I've ever been miserable using my OG Ridge Roller is on super hilly/heavily staired courses. (and that one time I got a flat just before my tee time on a tournament)

Not having to heft a bag all the time and having a place to sit outweighs any of the negatives that I keep hearing.

Did you switch to solid or foam filled tiers after the flat?

Nah. I'm way too lazy for that kind of sensible thinking.

Something must have been wrong with your set up, because a properly loaded/balanced cart (Original Zuca in my case) can be pulled with 1 finger. If there is tough terrain like big rocks, etc, I just grab the handle in the seat and carry it. Literally from the first time I pulled my Zuca it was a game changer. Shoulder/arms never fatigue on the course anymore.

Don't know what to say. I simply hate dragging a cart. I could possibly push one, but I'll quit before I pull.

This is a cart that will work for disc golf too I think if you can modify the cart just a tad, if your bag is not the right size for the cart, price is not bad either. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01G8KTZJC...NsaWNrPXRydWU=

There are courses I play where you'd be carrying it the entire 27 holes of up and down hill travel

I don't have a cart at the moment, I want one for longer (flatter) courses, but I think you're stuck having both if you every play anything that doesn't really resemble a ball golf course.

I agree if you live somewhere that disc golf courses are both flat and hilly. I do not but I play thanks to a family reunion a course that is a bit rooted in a few woods holes and can be muddy in parts so a cart is not the best for the course. I see people using carts but more a modified golf cart by removing the straps to hold a golf bag but most use the kind with seat over the one wheel with wide wheels to solve the low clearance issue and the mud issue as well. This not just a price thing with the carts as one local person I saw at a league had a modified Zuca backpack cart with larger 20 inch tiers and 2 pieces of angle iron so cart will work and have more ground clearance.
