MotoCaddy S3 electric trolley - silver

5.0 out of 5 stars Great trolleys, 21 Dec 2011
Of the two, the S1 and S3, I think the S1 is the better bet. The digital information on the S3 is not very helpful but, for those who want to know what speed they are walking at, the temperature and the distance they have just hit the previous shot, this will do it all.

The S1 and the S3 have the same basic structure, so all that is missing is the digital information; the built-quality of the trolley is excellent, very cleverly thought out and designed. I have the Lithium-Cadmium battery which is so light, picking the trolley up effortlessly with one hand is simple; it is also a powerful, 36-hole battery without question and I have used it for over 36 with no problems. In fact, with this battery, the trolley is so light, I often find myself pushing it without realising. Regular cleaning and oiling obviously helps but it is a very cleverly designed and built trolley.

I was fortunate to get mine after a compeition win but, knowing what I know now, I have no hesitation in recommending it.

4.0 out of 5 stars This is one of the cheapest remotes, 21 Dec 2011
Although I have moved on to a Motocaddy, I had this for two years but at a considerably cheaper price Knowing what I know now, I would not pay the full price for this unless, of course, they have up-graded on the last two years.

It is a robust trolley and seriously heavy because of the two motors servicing the remote systems, motors which always worked well. In the time I had it, one of the wheels cracked and fell apart (£50.00 replacement) and one of the tyres came off three times and I had to glue it on (a messy job). STrangely enough at the same point on the same golf course!

The remote control was a little fiddly to use because the controls are small, especially in the winter when gloves (or in my case, mitts) are the order of the day.

However, I paid £150.00 for my caddy three years ago and I played a lot of golf with it. For that price and the use I got out of it before re-selling it, it would be churlish to complain. However, if it has not been upgraded, I would think very carefully about paying the price they are asking.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great way to keep everything dry, 21 Dec 2011
During the winter, rain is a constant opponent, making good golf difficult. This is a simple solution to the problem, at least as far as the clubs are concerned. It stretches tightly around the bag itself, keepIng everything drier, not dry, just drier. The hood fits around the clubs and, although it is a little challenging to get clubs in and out because it is effectively tight, it does prevent the clubs getting too wet.

Nothing is easy in wet weather but this helps. Worth the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars An absolute winter essential, 21 Dec 2011
Even if readers are not fortunate enough to own a Motocaddy, this cover is excellent. I play a lot of golf courses and, in winter, all of them are muddy to some degree but this simple device solves the problem very effectively. There are few caddies which will not fit into this cover and it simply zips up to seal in the mud, allowing it to be put into the boot without anxiety. Once in the garage for a quick-charge, the mud dries and can just be tipped out later.

Carrying and lifting the caddy couldn't be better or simpler with the two effectively placed strap-handles.

5.0 out of 5 stars The big puffer, 16 Dec 2011
Dust has always been the photographer's enemy and it has always had the ability to attach itself to the trickiest of places. DSLRs are no different and dust can be even more annoying on the sensor than in some other places. Anyone who has been temped to try the "obvious" puffer method, i.e. blowing, probably knows how ineffective that can be and also, in the exasperation of not shifting the specks, the temptation to blow harder usually is accompanied by another airborne enemy - water or, in this case, worse, siliva. Not a sensible move.

This rocket air blower is well named; not only does it look like one, it blows like the Space Shuttle at lift off and its distinctive nozzle gets the air to places no other puffer can. Not a lot more to write really - it would just be hot air.

5.0 out of 5 stars In case readers need one, 16 Dec 2011
I bought one of these to go with my Canon outfit and it has been great. It is relatively solid and robust, although, since I take care of equipment, it did not have to be bomb-proof. It holds eight cards securely in numbered sections, all of which are easy to see when the case is open. I always turn used cards a particular way in the case and so can see instantly which are available for use.

It is an ideal companion for any camera case and, at this price, a bargain. There are many more expensive cases on the market but this sensibly-priced case does everything I want.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Crystal clear guide to children's language acquisition, 16 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Since the big debate in 1957 between Chomsky and Skinner and the academic explosion of interest and research it engenderd, a great deal has been learned about children's language acquisition, knowledge which makes a parents time more joyful and interesting. Giving them real insight into what is actually happening and the various stages involved, Crystal has managed to write the essentials from all this research in a style and language understandable by the "average parent".

Language and its acquisition are such vital elements in life and David Crystal has provided a invaluable guide for parents who also want to travel thoughtfully on the journey.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bryson's individual story on English, 16 Dec 2011
Bill Bryson is a journalist by profession and a writer of very humorous travel books in a style which is all his own. From my knowledge of his many books, he is highly-intelligent, erudite and, coupled with his journalist's training, he is able to turn his mind to many subjects, e.g. his book "The Short History of Nearly Everything" is excellent, full of detailed information about a wide range of differing disciplines.

I am sure he would not claim to be an expert on the English language in the David Crystal league and he would probably be the first to admit the errors in the book but, what it does reveal is divergent roots of our language and the ways in which it has developed; obviously researched well and skilfully crafted, Bryson obviously enjoyed writing it and his interest and pleasure in using language comes trough the words. For serious linguistic students looking for a reference text, this is probably not it but for anyone with a passing interest in and enjoyment of language, it will be fascinating - despite the inaccuracies picked out by various reviewers.

I may be wrong, but I think this book was a companion to the radio series of the same or a similar name. I have the cds and the programmes are very enjoyable with interviews with a wide and knowledgeable group of experts. Unfortunately, I have looked for the cds on Amazon without success.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not ideal but a good idea., 16 Dec 2011
I bought one of these for my wife and it is a very cheap solution for nights when the garage is not availablee is invoved. It needs to be fixed inside the doors and pulled taut across the windscreen to be most effective and can be tucked under the windscreen wipers to avoid their sticking to the screen and tearing their edge of with the ice.

This is just a simple solution to a common problem and, for the price, it is ideal. When it is wet and frost is forecast, it is best to avoid putting it on because it obviously freezes if it is wet.

We have used it and it has been quite helpful. Ours came with a plastic bag which is very handy just to fold it quickly and get it out of the way. For three pounds, it is just what is needed.

3.0 out of 5 stars This is a wide shovel - not a spade., 16 Dec 2011
This review is from: Bulldog Snow Shovel (DIY & Tools)
Obviously made just for the inclement weather, it is a useful tool in the snow. The handle and the spade blade are plastic and the wooden handle is quite short but it does the job when no real leverage is required.

I have had several of these and found that it is all right in lightish snow but it is not really a digging tool for heavier, packed or icy snow as the straight, in-line angle for pushing does not suit the blade. In lightish, newly-fallen snow, it is ideal and soon clears away a good path. It is always good to know there is one around and, in bad snow, it is small enoug to fit into the car just in case but I hope readers never have to use it.
