...I have been "carting" my bag for several years in our league (9 holes after work on Thursdays). I used to carry, but as I have gotten older, an old knee injury complains greatly if I carry the bag (the back isn't really that happy either). When I play on the weekends all my other buddies want to ride, so I do also, just to keep peace with the rest of the group.

I can relate to the body not performing the same tricks as it used to perform. It doesn't really bother me to carry my bag for 18 holes, but as I said, I've removed a few clubs from the 14 club limit to lighten my load (I carry 10 or 11 clubs - depending on the course). The courses here in Europe don't have drinking water out on the course and don't have beverage stands/carts or snack shops. So when you add a liter of water, an apple, a snack or two - those things add up to some extra weight in the bag. No riding carts in Europe either. It's a pure walking game here.

I still just have a relatively plain old Bag Boy cart, but I have been impressed with the KaddyStroller and the SpeedCart. I just wish the things weren't so darn expensive. I really like that the KaddyStroller has a "parking" brake and it also seems to keep the bag in more of an upright position, making it easier to locate clubs.

Yes, my previous post leads me to the parking brake attraction as well. However, Sun Mtn. seems to be on the right track to change that by this fall according to the representative I spoke with today.

Good luck in your pursuit of one of these, let us know how you like the one you choose...I would be interested in some feedback about either one of these

I'll let you know.
