The Pro Sport is my third Powerbug trolley over a period of ten years. During this period I had three - the original with L handle; the Sport and finally the Pro Sport. Other than two speed control switches (takes 5 mins to replace even for the lease mechanical of us) all three have been 100% reliable.Also during this period at least 25 of my golfing pals have bought various Powerbug models and again, no breakdowns whatsoever - speed control switch being the exception, in some cases.
The Powerbug, Motocaddy and Trooper are all made by the same company in China. This company specialises in the manufacture of light aircraft and these trolleys reflect that company's exceptional design and manufacturing standards. Powerbug and Trooper have less gizmos than Motocaddy and the price reflects that.
IMO steer clear of Powakaddy (and derivatives of which there are lots) as they are significantly more expensive, are structurally and mechanically inferior and are plagued by design and quality issues. If you don't believe me just have a look on ebay and see the number of mechanical spare parts therein. There's a good reason for that.
For the record I have no association with Powerbug. I've posted this review for the benefit of others who might be swithering about which trolley to buy.
