Powakaddy FW7 wins award

PowaKaddy’s FW7golf trolley has been voted the best model on the market by Today’s Golfer magazine. In a series of comprehensive tests that put 11 of the most popular electric trolleys through their paces over a number of rounds, the flagship FW7 came out on top to take the Gold Award, edging out Motocaddy and Stewart Golf in the Silver and Bronze places respectively

The test – which took into account weight, folded size, ease of storing, electronic features, aesthetics and accompanying batteries – was revealed in the December issue of Today’s Golfer, on sale from 1 October.

PowaKaddy UK Sales Manager David Howse said: “We’re delighted to win this award and would like to thank both Today’s Golfer and all our trade accounts that’ve helped promote the new Freeway range superbly this year. It’s also recognition of the further improvements that have been made to all our Freeway trolleys in 2015 and the corresponding growth the brand has enjoyed in recent years.”

As with the FW3 and FW5 trolleys that make up the PowaKaddy Freeway range, the FW7 has been enhanced for 2015 with new, larger 11 inch wheels with low-profile tyres and a completely redesigned front wheel to enhance the stylish and sporty look. The lightweight-yet-strong PowaFrame, which is a key piece of technology in allowing each Freeway to fold into a car boot-friendly size, has also been reshaped in order to allow the handle to be raised by an inch, enhancing use for taller golfers.

PowaKaddy recently announced a 54 per cent increase in trolley unit sales across the UK and Ireland from June 2014 until  June 2015. A surge in product sales has been helped by the Kent-based brand adding another assembly line to its Sittingbourne factory in March this year, which allowed the company to increase production capacity by 50 per cent.
