Reader Review Powakaddy FW7

By: Golf Shake | Thu 06 Aug 2015 | Comments


Powakaddy have been at the fore front of the electric trolley market from the very beginning. They have enjoyed huge success and maybe most of all with their FW range. We recently got our hands on the new and improved FW7 trolley. Golfshake reader, Ian Pilkington headed out on the Brabazon Course at The Belfry to test.

What Powakaddy say about the FW7:

Golfers who aspire to own the best electric trolley on the market will be suitably impressed by the FW7’s perfect combination of 21st century engineering, modern design and cutting-edge digital functionality. With PowaKaddy’s robust and reliable performance attributes resonating throughout this highly-desirable model, users can be guaranteed a memorable experience from the moment they push the on button and head out on to the course. Headline features of the FW7 encompass the innovative new Plug ‘n’ Play Battery System, the lightweight PowaFrame as well as being fully-loaded with an array of the latest user-friendly digital technology, clearly displayed on the integrated full-colour LCD widescreen. 

Those wanting to charge their phone and GPS devices can now do so through an integrated USB Charging point and for the security conscious, PowaKaddy has also integrated an Anti-Tamper security pin lock, which automatically locks the trolley until you need to use it.

The FW7 comes in a stylish Titanium Silver frame colour with the choice of a Carbon Fibre or Brushed Silver trim. Recommended retail prices start from £445.

Ian tested the Powakaddy FW7 on The Belfry's Brabazon course

Looks & Feel

The Powakaddy 7 was impressive with sleek and modern and modern looks and felt incredibly lightweight and mobile when using on the course. 

Performance

Easy-to-use, it maneouvered around the course very easily, even up , down and across hills/ It also did not struggle for life in the battery at all despite us being out on the course for over 5 1/2 hours! 

Pros

Long lasting battery, easy-to-use, detailed digital display with facility to track shot distance.

Cons

The speed 'knob' can be accidentally caught and switched to a speed that may leave you running after it.

The Bottom Line

As a golfer who does not have an electric trolley I can see the benefits of owning one, particularly walking down a fairway 'hassle free', but I'm not sure the £450+ price tag is worth that luxury. 

Ian's Rating - 7/10
