Planning on walking a lot this year to get in shape, back problems so a push cart is the only way that is going to happen. I am definitely going to pick up a Clicgear 3.0 as soon as the new ones are released and I was wondering if anyone has any experience using the Clicgear seat?

I regularly play a course that can get pretty slow and often times there are long  waits in the middle of the fairway (some of this will be mitigated by the fact that I will be spending time walking to my ball instead of zooming to it in a cart) but there will still be a wait. Rather than standing there waiting for my back to hurt (tall guy and standing for long periods starts tweaking my lower back) sitting on a little seat seems like it would be nice. I know I could just sit on the ground but if it is wet I would rather not have to choose between back pain or wet pants.

So after that long winded explanation, can some folks that have used the seat chime in and give me some reviews? How does it mount to the cart and does it work decently with a stand bag on the cart?


Thanks!

I can't attest as to the Clicgear, as I have a Sun Mountain V1 cart. BUT....

The seat option on the pushcart is about the best option you can get. It's perfect for slow rounds (and shoe tying). When I fold the cart, the seat folds as well.

The seat attaches to the axle, and is spring loaded. When you sit down the post hits the ground, when you stand up it retracts.

Don't even think twice. Get the seat.

If your thinking about a Clicgear, they will be coming out with the 3.5 in the early spring.
I have a 3.0 and absolutely love it. I don't have a seat so I can't comment on that aspect.
I wonder how they are going to improve on the 3.0.

I don't own one a Clicgear yet.  I have a tour Trek, but I'm getting a CG 3.5 after they come out next month.   Hadn't really thought about the seat.  Did look at the one that Tour Trek has and it sucks.  The CG looks to be much better made.  Here's some video's if you haven't seen them.  Might help you a bit:

I've got a CG3.0 and about the only add-on I am thinking of putting on is the shoe brush.
The more crap you've got attached to the side of it is the more stuff in the way.

If there is a long wait in the fairway I just walk around, go over to someone else's ball and have a chat, enjoy the esthetics of the course,,,
I think sitting mid-hole would put me off more than help.
Like yourself I don't have the best back in the world, but typically mine only acts up when out and about in the city, walking on cement sidewalks for hours. Walking on grass - even links courses - provides enough give.

I bought the seat for my clic gear 3.0 a few weeks ago and have used it for about 3 rounds.  I waited for sports authority to have a 30% sale and bought both the seat and the cooler bag.  Both are worth the money IMO but the seat has been priceless.  It is well made, and easy to install.  When you first receive it you have to remove the wheel and install it which the clicgear youtube video shows in step by step instructions. After that every time that you want to put it on and take it off it literally takes 5 seconds.

On a slow playing course, yes it is very worth it.

I have one and absolutely love it. You can sit and lean your back on your bag. It is quite comfortable especially if you have the umbrella on a hot day. Also I notice that the bench at the tee box usually fit only three people so a seat helps the group even waiting at the tee box. I would highly recommend getting it.

The seat is useful especially if the course is slow.  However, you need to take the seat portion off of the post every time you fold the cart.  I use it once in a while since I rarely have a long wait in the fairway or on the tee box if I'm walking at the course I usually play at.  If playing twilight at a muni, the seat is worth it's weight in gold.
