In another pioneering move in the powered trolley market, top-selling brand Motocaddy has introduced a full 5-year warranty* on any new Motocaddy Lithium battery purchases.
From 1st January 2017, all Motocaddy Lithium batteries sold – including those purchased with a Motocaddy electric trolley – will be eligible for the new warranty which replaces the previous ‘limited’ cover and adds three additional years to the existing all-inclusive, two-year period.
The initiative comes a year after Motocaddy became the first trolley brand to close the price gap between models sold with Lithium and Lead-acid batteries to just £100 – a drop of £50 on previous price points. The move has seen demand for Motocaddy electric trolleys sold with a Lithium battery reach a record high, accounting for more than 90% of overall Motocaddy trolley sales last season – compared with 63% in 2015 and 24% in 2014.

KBS, the fastest-growing steel shaft golf brand that built its reputation on precision iron shafts, is adding a graphite hybrid shaft to its 2017 range to offer golfers a seamless transition from irons to fairway woods.
The KBS Tour Graphite Hybrid shaft has already been adopted by players on the PGA and European Tours, including multiple major winners and every leading club manufacturer since testing began earlier this year.
“Unlike other graphite hybrid shafts on the market, the new shaft design is based on the specification of a long iron, offering a more solid hit through impact and a consistent tighter dispersion,” said Kim Braly, R&D and Tour operations director. “We’ve also created the Tour Graphite Hybrid shaft to provide the feel of a premium KBS Tour steel iron, but in a graphite version,” he added.
