How much?
Unfortunately Mark, a lot of people have bad backs and/or knees and having to carry your discs on your back can put a lot of stress on an already fragile back. I can see how they would be unnecessary in ball golf for the fact that you can drive a golf cart around, but we don't have that option in disc golf. All the people that I see with cart all have a pretty good reason why they do that. Also, for those who do choose to carry more than a bags worth of disc, and a cooler full or goodness, a cart can be very helpful.
I have bad knees and a bad right ankle, as well as a bad back. Bad knees and ankles and such are NOTHING like a bad back.

I'm just trying to figure out why my body is such a train wreck at 36 years old. I mean I've been rough on it but damn! My Grandpa is 93 and gets around better than me sometimes.....
Think back 10 to 15 years. You are just paying the price now. That's why I cringe when I see those X game people. Man O man will they be in a world of hurt in 15 years!
I can attest to that statement. I won't be 34 until next month yet my knees and back are screaming 50+. I was one of those X-gamers that liked to do all his own stunts. I have had 4 broken ribs, dislocated hip, broken chins numerous times, cracked knee cap, 4 broken elbows, torn rotator cuff, 5 broken noses, numerous severe sprains in wrists and ankles, and here is the best one 7 concussions while wearing a helmet! BMX stunts are fun till 15 years later, LMAO!!!!!! Sad part is if you rolled out a bike right now and pointed me to a ramp I would still do something crazy at my current age!
Same with me, I was a lower pro series skateboarder at one point, and then spent 8 years in the military as well as snowboarding a lot. I think I'm paying for all of that.
I think that's pretty cool. It'd be easy to get an eye on and pull a disc. I can see myself tipping it over and spilling my discs all over though. I'm agile as a mountain goat, yet I get my head in space and trip on roots when I play lol.
Maybe when I'm in my eighties. Till then I'll carry my bag. Now - if I lived somewhere very hot and played lots of tournament rounds - I'd think about it. For the average player, especially up North with tight, wooded courses - no way.
Nice cart...I would change the spelling of Disk to Disc though....jmho.
Don't take offense at this but just another business man making 500% profit on something. It couldn't cost more than $10 to make that plus say a few hours of his time and he is charging $89.99? Thats about as ridiculous as the cornhole boards that go for $100+ and all they are is a sheet of plywood with a spray painted stencil on them.

I have a cart that has been modified to hold my actual bag. Like Rev. Bob said you just can't take them on some courses. So I designed mine to hold the bag and have it removable. The cart cost me $2 at a yard sale, some scrap metal off a 78 Chevy truck hood, some scrap aluminum square tubing and wallah pull cart modified for disc golf!!!!!!!! Total cost $2 and 2 hours of my time!!!!
I clear $8.00 Per.
