Big Max wins Golf Digest recognition

PRESS RELEASE 23 April 2019


BIG MAX, Europe’s No.1 push cart brand is celebrating its fourth consecutive Golf Digest Editors' Choice Award for Best Push Cart after the incredible BLADE IP took the prestigious accolade for the second year in a row.


Following the award winning success of the AUTOFOLD FF in 2016, BLADE Quattro in 2017, and BLADE IP in 2018, BIG MAX decided to allow its impressive stable of carts settle into the market in 2019, before returning with a brand new innovation in 2020. Despite being up against the latest developments from BIG MAX’s leading competitors, the BLADE IP still came out on top with the judges heaping particular praise on the BLADE IP’s unique folding mechanism.

In their summary of the BLADE IP the editors commented, “If storing your pushcart is an issue, look no further than Big Max’s Blade IP. Pushcarts usually fold down to a large cubic shape, but the Blade IP folds down to a flat height of five inches. It can fit behind the driver’s seat, in the trunk, and pretty much wherever else you might want to store it.”

Upon learning of the award, Thomas Reiter, owner of BIG MAX commented, “The BLADE IP is the best push cart we’ve ever designed. It has a smooth, innovative mechanism, it glides along the fairways and it has the flattest fold we’ve ever built. While I do believe, even in its second year, that it’s still the best push cart on the market, it is very pleasing to know that the judges agree!”

The success of all three of BIG MAX’s award winning carts is based around the folded size. And with the BLADE IP coming in at a just 34 ½” x 24 ½“ and an incredible depth of less than 5” it is the Flattest of the BIG MAX carts and hands down, the most easily stored and transported push cart on the market.

The BLADE IP is as practical on the fairways as it is for transport and storage. Multiple features such as double foot brake, integrated drink holder and storage compartment in the handle, along with ball, tee and double scorecard holder, keep all a golfers’ necessities close to hand. Multiple Quick Lok and Quick Fix bases finish the package, ready to take any BIG MAX accessory such as umbrella holder, GPS holder, or sand bottle holder.

The BLADE IP is available in golf stores nationwide as well as on the BIG MAX website. Following this second ringing endorsement from Golf Digest it’s set to get more U.S. golfers walking the course than ever before.

Available in Black, Black/Lime, White, White/Lime, Phantom/Red, the BLADE IP retails at $349.99 and will be in stores from May 2018. For more information please visit
