Do you fall into the realm of high-end golfer? Do you have that $100,000+/year club membership? When you’re not riding around in your cart, it’s time to step up your game and be the talk of the club with the Mantis carbon fiber caddy.
Mantis is made by a German company named Carbon Functions, and they have quite the product on their hands. There are three different versions of the caddy; Sport, High End, and Premium, each with about €1,000 difference (about $1,250 in today’s market). The caddy, made of carbon fiber and aircraft aluminum weigh in at just about 7kg (15.5 lbs).
The design allows the golf caddy to be very stable and lightweight…important aspects when lugging your clubs around.
To be the talk of the club, be prepared to dish out the platimum Amex. The sport model starts at €2,990 ($3,750), and the premium model is €4,990 ($6,250). The Mantis website states that this is available starting in February of 2008, so you’ll have to contact them to get one.
