What we say...

SILVER AWARD

 

It was always going to be a contender for the number one spot, and the Freeway II certainly gave it a good crack. In terms of assembly, it was a piece of cake… out of the box, three steps later and we were ready to go.

 

The frame proved incredibly stable and the padding that helps to hold the top of the bag in place does just that and the FW II made light work of any hills it encountered. Looks-wise, golfers can buy the trolley in white or black – we tested the white version and it certainly turned heads.

 

Although we didn’t mark the bags out of five, it’s worth noting that the quality of the Powakaddy was exceptional and it really added to the look of the overall product. When it came to the actual test, Fergus was entrusted with the FW II first and he wrote that it had set a very high standard and he wouldn’t have been surprised if it had been more expensive.

 

It also did the job in the functions department – it features a distance measuring facility that not only calculates how far you’ve hit the ball but also the distance travelled during your round. The Digital Distance Function also allows golfers to set the FW II to go off on a set distance – either 10, 20 or 30m which is another nice touch.

 

Dave loved the bright display too, commenting that it was easy to see, whether in bright sunlight or in darker conditions, while Ian noted it was incredibly easy to manoeuvre.

 

The one thing that let it down a little was the price – Fergus was in the minority when he said he expected it to be more. We tested an FW II with a lithium battery, making the overall package just shy of £700 – we think this is a little too much but if you like the sound of it and want the lead acid battery this is available for the more-affordable £429.

Functions: High colour, 2.5in display, digital speed guage with nine settings, battery indicator, distance function.

Battery options: 18-hole lead acid £429, 36-hole lead acid £459, lithium £699

Size when folded: 57.5cm x 82cm x 39.5cm

Weight: 9kg
