I have used an electric trolley for about 80% of the rounds I have played over the last number of years. I love the freedom of using one and statistics have even proved that an electric trolley will save you not only energy, but shots.
Like most people, I have a bag that matches the trolley I use – in my case it’s a Motocaddy M5 Connect with their Pro Series cart bag. Aside from the fact they look great together, both in terms of colour and design, I chose mine because it fit the trolley perfectly and the Easilock bag-to-trolley connection system kept the bag firmly fixed to the trolley at all times.
If travelling abroad to play, I would have to transfer my clubs to a smaller stand bag or worse still, forgetting to charge the battery on my trolley would lead to every golfer’s worst nightmare, having to carry a cart bag around for 18 arduous holes!
Thankfully, Motocaddy are launching a simple solution to cover me for all situations, with a revolutionary dual-purpose stand bag which has also been designed to fit perfectly onto any Motocaddy trolley.
The versatile AquaFLEX stand bag is 100% waterproof and super-lightweight, offering golfers the ultimate flexibility when deciding whether to carry or fit onto a Motocaddy electric or push trolley.
“Anyone who has ever tried to use a carry bag on a trolley knows they don’t fit very well” said David Wells, Motocaddy Chairman. “Our R&D team have worked hard to come up with a revolutionary top and base design which allows it to fit perfectly onto a trolley without affecting its performance as a lightweight carry bag.”
Weighing just 2.2kg, the stylish bag with a modern design includes a number of standout features including a fully-adjustable quick-release carry strap and a swivel buckle with ‘Smart Fit’ technology, which allows the strap to automatically re-balance when carrying so that weight is always evenly balanced between both shoulders.
The ‘rear stand lock’ holds the legs in place when attached to a Motocaddy trolley and the bag is kept firmly in-place by the brand’s innovative Easilock bag-to-trolley connection system, removing the need for a lower bag strap.
Manufactured from a durable TPU coated Nylon, it includes thermo sealed zips and heat-welded seams to protect the bag from the elements. Easy-open Japanese YKK zips with toggles are incorporated on five spacious pockets, including a garment storage space and valuables pouch.
Other key features include five full-length dividers; waterproof rain hood; towel and accessory hook; internal umbrella sleeve and external beverage pouch.
“We’ve enjoyed a number of years as the UK’s leading cart bag brand and we’ve seen significant demand for a really good lightweight carry bag which can also fit seamlessly onto a trolley” said Wells. “With our knowledge and expertise in producing quality waterproof bags, we’re really excited to launch the AquaFLEX which will be the most versatile bag available to golfers,” he added.
The AquaFLEX stand bag is available in three new colours of Charcoal/Blue, Charcoal/Lime and Charcoal /Red options at an RRP of €269.99.
For 2019, Motocaddy have also introduced upgrades to its existing bag range.
The flagship Pro Series is not only 20% lighter than previous models but packed with a wide-range of premium features including nine spacious pockets – the most in the Motocaddy range – and easy-access carry handles ensuring effortless lifting on and off the trolley.
Manufactured from premium PU and Nylon fabrics, the new Pro-Series also features plenty of club space provided by 14 full-length dividers, plus scorecard and pencil holders. In addition, the jumbo putter well easily fits the popular thicker grips while the internal umbrella sleeve, towel and accessory hook and waterproof rain hood complete the feature-packed bag.
The new Pro-Series is also available in three colourways – Black/Blue, Black/Lime and Black/Red at an RRP €249.99 – enabling golfers to match a bag to a Motocaddy trolley of their choice.
The 2019 Motocaddy cart bag range also features the multi-award winning and 100% waterproof Dry-Series €299.99; the feature-packed Club-Series €179.99 and the most compact trolley bag in the range, the Lite-Series €149.99 which is available with a new Black/Lime colourway.
