GM Review

Looks The FW7s is a stunning piece of modern-day kit from every angle. The graphics and colours give it a cutting-edge look and feel while the colour screen enhances this further.

Performance If you enjoy using a variety of features during a round, this is the model for you and they’re easy to navigate. Getting it in and out of your car isn’t a problem thanks to it being surprisingly lightweight and relatively compact when folded down. The assembly process is incredibly simple, clicking into place in just two swift movements, and the lightweight and compact Plug ‘n’ Play lithium battery slides in effortlessly.

We were impressed with how long the lithium battery lasts – after one round from a full charge the meter had barely moved and we’re confident you’d get 36 holes from one charge on a relatively flat course. It feels sturdy and stable, which improves with the key lock base on PowaKaddy’s own cart bags. Little details like the chrome bezel are the perfect finishing touches to what is a very smart and sophisticated electric trolley offering.
