What we say...
PowaKaddy have upped their game when it comes to the styling and design of their trolleys over the last few years. The FW7s GPS looks really good gliding down the fairway.
And the simplicity of having a GPS built into the handle (rather than a phone) means setting it up couldn’t be easier. Simply select “play golf” and the system finds the course and off you go… it is that easy. The screen is a bit bigger than the Motocaddy, but it doesn’t mean you get more info. While the Motocaddy will (if you want) push notifications or call alerts to the handle, the FW7 lets you keep score, count the miles you’ve walked and keep track of how many calories you’ve burnt.
Weight: Trolley: 9.4kg Battery (18 hole lithium): 1.8kg Motor size: 230 watt
Warranty: Trolley: Three years. Lithium battery: Five years Folded size: 385mm x 860mm x 570mm
It’s so simple to set up, and finds the course you’re at within seconds.
It’s a scorecard, too.
It’s has a lovely sleek upmarket, premium chassis design.
It counts your miles walked and calories burnt.
You don’t need your phone on the course.
We didn’t love…
Having the GPS tracker in the handle, rather than your phone, ramps up the price.
Can’t take it to a back tee/no other way of getting a course map to see what hazards are out there.
We’d say the PowaKaddy is a little more stylish than the Motocaddy, but only you can decide whether this is worth the £200 price difference. The FW7s is Powakaddy’s premium trolley so by combining it with GPS tech means it’s possible to buy an electric trolley and GPS system separately for less. If price isn’t a consideration, this a great looking, top spec machine which works brilliantly.
