What we say...

Technology
The middle-spec FW trolley boasts a Digital Power Gauge and Battery Fuel Indicator, integrated USB charging port and pre-set distance of 15, 30 and 45 yards. Boasts the same Plug ‘n’ Play battery and PowaFrame.

Tested
As reviewed in our Trolley Test 2014, tested by Joe Downes (Handicap 16):
Simple styling and assembly, getting upright in three moves. Once you’ve clicked the battery into place and attached your bag with the two bungee cords, it is just a case of pushing the lone button to start and stop while a twist of the outer dial takes you through nine speed settings. Speeds three and four were most frequently used and the difference between the two could be smaller. A traffic light-style display tells you how much battery life is left and it was still green as I left the 18th on its debut, despite PowaKaddy warning it may only last nine on the first charge. It proved a sturdy companion, riding humps and hollows with ease.

Details: Available in white or black. £390 (standard battery); £425 (extended range); £555 (lithium); £610 (extended lithium). www.powakaddy.co.uk

    Having owned the Clicgear 3.0 for over 18 month I was looking around for a new trolley, with both the Clicgear and myself becoming more tired over the winter months. I decided to go for the FW5 with Lithium in the end, falling for the salesman patter of "you will regret not going lithium after 12 months", any how in for a penny in for £475.00 (deals to be done at AG). Can quite honestly say after 6 rounds of winter golf in some crazy conditions, this is one of the best buys during my short golfing history. The quick fold up and down mechanism is excellent. The styling of the trolley, controls, lithium battery and its plug and play design are excellent. The Lithium Battery easily last 27 holes on one charge, and I recently managed 36 holes of my local municipal course on the single charge. If I had to find fault it would be that I could have saved some money and gone for the FW3 without the USB as 9 times out of 10 I go out golfing with a fully charged GPS so would not normally need to recharge it. Also the size of the trolley when folded is somewhat bigger than my previous Clicgear. Thoroughly recommended.
