Equipment news: Stewart Golf’s new X9 Follow trolleyApril, 2014 Equipment
Premium British golf trolley manufacturer Stewart Golf has taken the covers off its latest creation: the X9 Follow.
Stewart Golf engineers have taken the proven X Series chassis and given it a brand new heart: an all-new Bluetooth powered electronics system that allows the machine to follow the golfer at just the touch of a button.
The X9 Follow retains the slick look that consumers will be familiar with. Stewart Golf’s engineers have been able to integrate two additional antennas under the distinctive X Series bodywork, so the only outward indication of change is a new badge and a blue LED that replaces the aerial.
CEO Mark Stewart said: “We are constantly innovating and pushing the boundaries of what’s possible. Our engineering team have worked extremely hard for more than three years to make the X9 Follow just as intuitive as the remote control models we’re famous for.
“The X9 Follow really takes relaxation to a whole new level of luxury.”
To use the ‘follow’ feature, all the golfer needs to do is press a single button on the new rechargeable remote control handset.
Once the golfer starts to walk, the X9 Follow will stay a few paces behind them and match their walking pace exactly.
It even holds its position going down hills, with the patented electronics system automatically varying and braking the twin motors to alter both speed and direction.
Every X9 Follow will be hand-made to order in the company’s Gloucestershire workshop The user friendly design means that between the golfer stopping at their ball to walking away again, no button presses are required.
As well as its “follow” mode, the X9 Follow also comes with full remote control functionality that existing customers will be familiar with.
Golfers will now have the option of keeping the handset on the handle for manual control, using the remote control or activating the follow function.
Every X9 Follow will be hand-made to order in the company’s Gloucestershire workshop, be powered by a high-quality lithium battery, and come with a full two-year warranty covering both the trolley and the battery.
