Bag Boy Nitron Push Cart Review

For those who don’t want to fork out for an expensive electric trolley, one of the best golf push carts is a brilliant alternative. Not only will it ease the strain on your body, but it also keeps your clubs secure and won’t take up too much space or be too heavy. Bag Boy might not be a household name to some but don’t let that fool you, its Nitron Push Cart is packed full of performance. Suitable for golfers of all levels, the mechanism to fold and unfold is lightning fast, while it’s also one of the most stable push carts I’ve ever used.

One of the drawbacks of trolleys and push carts is that they can be a little cumbersome and difficult to transport to and from the course. However, I found no such issue here. It’s extremely lightweight and, when folded down, it’s very compact, making it a dream in terms of storage. With some pretty neat packing I managed to fit the cart and my clubs in the boot of my medium-sized hatchback, albeit with not much room to spare.

As for initial construction, it took me just over ten minutes from opening the box to having it ready for use and being up to speed with the various features. The wheels clip on very easily and the instructions are clear and concise.

When taking to the course, I was really impressed with the speed at which the patented nitrogen-powered opening mechanism worked. It opens up in one smooth action and then folds closed again just as easily at the end of a round. And during my round, the bungee straps did an excellent job of tightly securing my golf bag in place from start to finish.

While it nails the basics, it also comes with additional features that improve the overall user experience. There is a scorecard holder, a beverage holder, a mobile phone holder, an umbrella holder, as well as a handle-mounted parking brake. 

It does feel quite wide compared to others I’ve tried and the fixed front wheel is not as manoeuvrable as some but this is the key to the extra stability on offer. You soon get used to steering it and I’ve not found it an issue having used it over several rounds now. And however inconsequential, it’s without a doubt one of the better looking push carts on the market.
