As good as you can get

This is my second zip x5 previous one got damaged in car accident. Noteable improvments are 1. Stronger axle 2. Usb slot 3. More tread on tyres. Speed control button sensitivity and selection could be better but still probably best buggy available in australia if you dont like remote control version. Show details

Smooth sailing!

The Zip X5 operated as promised. Once I got used to which walking speed was best (5, BTW) it was all smooth sailing. I also really like the distance measuring facility Thanks MGi.

Very useful golf accessory, especially to senior golfers!

I should have invested in one of these e-buggies long time ago. It's been a great relief for me especially on longer distances between boxes and undulating fairways. Easy and fun to operate. Show details

Great on the course, poor on repair

Zip X5 is very good on our golf courses which are mountainous so we have a lot of up, down and side hill traversing. Unfortunately, the gear box seems to be a weak link. The nylon gears don’t standup to any misuse at all. Show details

Makes my time on the course so much more enjoyable

My MGI X5 has made my golfing journey a better and more relaxing experience. Without the X5 I struggled on our hilly course, but now do with ease. A sturdy well designed product. Show details

It’s quite good almost perfect!

My Zip X5 really helps with my game, is well balanced, folds up easily and fits neatly into my car. It covers the ground smoothly and easily. I would have liked a bit more tread on the tyres for the steeper slopes especially when they are wet or uneven. Show details

A perfect piece!!

Great ergonomic design with easy folding system. Wheels come off and turn around to make the buggy compact for storing in the boot of your car. The standard battery will complete more than 2 rounds in any given day on a hilly course!
Great lit up display and counter.
Only negative is between speeds settings 5, 6 & 7, there needs to be half speeds to match walking pace.
Overall - a fantastic product!! Show details

Great to assist me to walk up hills as i get older

Great machine. Delivers beyond expectation. Battery life supposedly one round, but i can get two and a half rounds. Be careful not to drop a club on the screed as it can crack. I did this. Expensive to replace. Very happy with the buggy. Show details

Golf made easier

My home course in Victoria is regarded as being quite hilly. I never realised how much effort it took me to push/pull the clubs around 18 holes. With my X5 I found that I was fresher at the end of the round and my golf was better in the final holes. The downhill control is fantastic as is the stop function on hills. Don't know why I waited so long. Show details

Golfing with less fatigue

I generally play at a hilly and undulating course and since buying the MGI Zip X5 buggy I have found that I have more energy at the end of the round.
I find that I am not as stiff and sore as when I was pushing and pulling my previous buggy.
The big surprise is, I am able to get 3 rounds of golf out of the battery before charging it up.
Can highly recommend the MGI Zip X5 Show details

The best golf purchase I have bought

The energy I save not pushing my clubs around allow me to have more energy for the back nine and able to do more holes if I like. Great product Show details

Love my MGI

My Zip 5 now has over 800 kms on the clock- without a single blip.
Like a car, I figure it needs to be serviced at regular intervals so at 500 kms it went for a check up and freshen.
Care for your MGI and it will work well for you! Show details

My x5 buggy is only six months old. I was caught in the rain 2 weeks ago in a comp.
The next time I went to use it the screen pad had moisture in it. I parked it at the pro shop to go inside & when I came out it had taken off & was in the flower garden 20 meters away, still trying to drive. I took it home & tried to let the screen dry out but it did not.
Taking it back to where I purchased it I was informed by the manufacturer that it was not covered by warranty as it was water damage. It has since been checked & dried out by a servicing agent. I have been told by all just to put a plastic bag over it rains!
Surely there has to be a better answer & it should be water proof as it rains quite often while playing.

Hi. Is it ok to pull the buggy backwards when turned off, or do I need to change the wheel position into idle?

Another issue with my zip x5 is it suddenly stops for no reason, this can happen at any random time. As much as 3 or 4 times for 18 hole. What would cause this as you almost injure yourself with this sudden stop.

Tommy

You can easily bump the button with your tummy, especially when pushing the handle without hands, and it stops the buggy.
There is really no risk of injury ..... Just a surprise that the buggy stops.
