Golf Monthly Verdict

If you want to use a golf trolley but don’t have enough room to store it either in your car or at home, the Big Max Blade Quattro could be the answer. The fold flat mechanism is easy to use and makes this incredibly compact and easy to store.

Reasons to buy
  • +

    The Big Max Blade Quattro fold-flat mechanism is an excellent piece of engineering that makes this ideal for anyone with limited storage space. The trolley is also light and travels very easily around the course.

Reasons to avoid
  • -

    The only downside to this trolley is the hefty price-tag. Let's be honest, this is expensive for a push trolley but what you are paying for is that impressive fold-flat engineering. If you want a hassle free trolley that is easy to store, the price-tag shouldn't put you off.

In this Big Max Blade Quattro review, Neil Tappin takes the company's latest fold flat trolley design out to West Hill to test the performance on offer

Big Max Blade Quattro Review: Tech Info

The Big Max Blade Quattro trolley is notable for its four-wheel design. This should help the trolley offer extra stability on more undulating golf courses. Importantly, the Big Max engineers have been able to incorporate a fourth wheel without affecting the fold-flat nature of the trolley – this allows it to be stored in the smallest of spaces. Other helpful features are the footbrake, organiser panel and height adjustable handle. It is also available in four different colour combinations: black, black and lime, white, white and red.

Big Max Blade Quattro Review: GM Verdict

The first thing to talk about in the Big Max Blade Quattro Trolley review is the fold flat mechanism. As with the previous Big Max AutoFold FF and Blade +, this is the key selling point and it works beautifully. If you have limited room for storage, this could well be the answer. With just two clicks it folds completely flat and will easily sit on the boot of your car with your clubs on top. As far as the performance on the course goes, it is very light and easy to manoeuvre. The fourth wheel that has been added to this version of the trolley added extra stability – something you’ll notice if you often play hilly courses or in windy conditions. If you want to use a trolley but don’t want any of the added hassle attached to electric trolleys, this is well worth considering. From the boot of the car it requires two clips and you are up and away. A superb performer.

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.
