    LOVE my cart. Battery easily lasts 36 holes, could push it for another 9 if I really tried but usually can't handle it as I'm gassed . Plenty of options to add storage, folds up nicely to fit in the back of my car and even have myself a fancy storage bag to keep my trunk clean and organized.

    Fits a carry and cart bag with ease, also has an attachment so you can put your tour bag on if you have one. They also make a B3 that's designed for this cart, the newest one is a big improvement over last years.

    Even better, it takes AA batteries.

      24 AAA batteries actually, but I get them at Costco.

My handle has broken three times but that was by back shop who tried to drag it by the fragile handle. It is not intuitive to others that the handle is not really to be used other than very gently. So don't leave it where others might want to move it out of the way. Without remote, it can't be moved without knowing how to release the wheels.

        I had a Lectronic Kaddy before and it was not reliable enough to use in Florida where there is no support. You can order parts for X7 to do most things yourself, such as changing handle or wheels. I don't think I have ever seen a Caddy Trek.
        This is the CaddyTrek. It can either follow you or be in front of you which they call marching mode.

          Hmmm... a couple of guys at my then club had a follow me that they returned after a few rounds. Said it was unreliable. Said one problem was parking them around green requiring you to walk to parking spot and leave remote with cart. I would think that follow me is a great marketing concept but not so practical on anything but a rare flat course. Would suggest you try to get personal reviews.

            +1 ^ some of the guys at my club say they are a pain in the butt as your always have to be aware of your movements and placement of the remote, the hand held remote is really the way to go, a lot to said about simple technology

              Agree 100%. The follow me feature sounds great but once you get around the green, bunkers, shortcuts from green to next tee, etc., the "feature" in my opinion turns into a PIA because the cart is controlling you, as opposed to the other way around. I can't think of how many times I approach green with putter in hand and remotely steer the cart to the back of the green. I would find it a pain to have to walk to a point, drop my remote and then walk back to my putt.
