The Big Max Autofold FF push trolley is most notable for its ability to fold completely flat - we took it to the course at Royal Cinque Ports to see how it performed

Tech Info

The ‘FF’ in the name Big Max Autofold FF stands for fold flat and this is the key technology that separates this push trolley from others on the market. In one simple move, it folds completely flat and is just 12.5 cm deep. The trolley also features a height adjustable handle, footbrake, a storage compartment in the main console and the base is adjustable to accommodate different-sized bags.

GM Verdict

The precision engineering on offer both from the Big Max Autofold FF and Blade + push trolleys is about making this as easy to store as possible. The fold flat mechanism is truly impressive and means these push trolleys will fit into even the smallest of boots. Likewise, if you don’t have a large space at home to house a golf trolley, this is a fantastic option. The way in which it unfolds in one sweeping move – it certainly doesn’t require excess force – reduces the faffing that can put some golfers off using trolleys. The trolleys themselves look great with the Big Max Aqua bags, both of which are very lightweight and make transporting your clubs around the course extremely easy. If you haven’t used a modern-day push trolley yourself, you’ll be shocked by how easy they are to use. The combination of a lightweight frame and handle that’s height adjustable, makes both the Autofold FF and Blade + trolleys incredibly simple and easy to use. If you are someone who has always loved carrying his clubs but perhaps is now looking for a trolley that in no way interferes with your enjoyment of 18 holes, the Big Max offerings will not disappoint. This is modern day push trolley innovation at its very best!

Neil Tappin
Digital Editor

In his current role, Neil is responsible for testing drivers and golf balls. Having been a part of the Golf Monthly team for over 15 years and playing off a handicap of 3, he has the experience to compare performance between models, brands and generations. For 2022 he thinks the main trend in drivers is: "In a word, consistency. Whilst all the brands are talking about ball speed (and the new drivers are certainly long), my biggest finding has been how much more consistent the ball flights are. Mishits don't seem to be causing the same level of drop-off or increase in the spin numbers. This means that more shots seem to be flying the way you want them to!" As far as golf balls are concerned the biggest development is in the, "three piece, non-Tour, urethane-covered section. For regular golfers, these models offer superb performance at both ends of the bag without denting your wallet quite as much as the premium Tour-played options."

Originally working with the best coaches in the UK to produce instruction content, he is now the brand's Digital Editor and covers everything from Tour player interviews to gear reviews. In his time at Golf Monthly, he has covered equipment launches that date back well over a decade. He clearly remembers the launch of the Callaway and Nike square drivers as well as the white TaylorMade driver families, such as the RocketBallz! If you take a look at the Golf Monthly YouTube channel, you'll see his equipment videos dating back over a decade! He has also conducted 'What's In The Bag' interviews with many of the game's best players like Rory McIlroy, Dustin Johnson and Jon Rahm. Over the years, Neil has tested a vast array of products in each category and at drastically different price-points.
