The main goal for 2018 is to walk my golf rounds as often as possible, and ride as little as possible. I have several reasons. First, I need exercise. Second, I’m training for an epic trip to Bandon Dunes Golf Resort this July. Third, and not least, riding costs a lot more money. I’m saving about $15 per round by walking.
Slinging my bag on my shoulders is not much of an option because I have a bad back. Thankfully I have a Big Max Blade Quattro 4-wheel push cart, or “trolley” for my friends across the pond. I’ve been gaming this push cart for six months now, 3x/week now that spring is here.
The Blade Quattro features four wheels, which fold to a nice flat “blade” shape for storage, as seen in the photo below.
The wheels can be removed easily for more storage and transportation options. The frame is solid but the wheelbase is a little narrower and shorter than some carts, so balancing the bag properly is important for a good and easy roll.
Folding is easy. Undo two latches, one being the height adjustment for the handle, and bring the frame together. The wheels automagically fold under as seen above.
The handle area has some nice features. First there are mounts for GPS devices as well as an umbrella mount (see photo below with umbrella). There is a beverage holder on the right, which perfectly fits a water or sports bottle.
The storage area in the handle is massive. I’ve put tons of stuff in there. At one time I had the following in there, with plenty of room to spare: 4-5 balls, wallet, phone, gloves, hat extra score card, car keys, pocket camera, umbrella mount. See photo below.
The lid of the storage compartment holds a scorecard with a strong clip.
There are also a few tee holders and a pencil holder in the handle area.
Here’s a little video showing the Blade do its thing, in spring golf conditions in Utah (meaning some snow on the ground).
The Big Max Blade Quattro 4-Wheel Push Cart is a terrific push cart. I just wrapped up my 2nd round in as many days with the Blade, just about an hour ago. It was a solid round and I was once again thrilled with the Blade’s performance and convenience. She’s now folded nicely in the trunk of my car, ready for action on a moment’s notice.
