I continue to be impressed with John Iacono’s Zero Friction for their innovative ideas about golf gear and the resulting products. Best known for their gloves and golf balls they also make carry and cart bags but what really showed their creative thinking in spades was the Wheel Pro that was introduced in 2021.

Their latest is the Stride and it too is an all-in-one bag and pushcart but has a quantum leap in usefulness. It is an electric trolley as well.

Iacono’s demonstration at the PGA Show showed how well thought out the design is and running the risk of over enthusiasm I was impressed with features such as the drive wheels pop off for transport on an electric cart and the rough terrain gyroscope is built right into the unit. If you’re like me, bags never have enough storage, and the Stride has seven pockets and the cooler pocket has room for a sixpack.

There are also other handy features such as the side magnets to hold a laser rangefinder and the 14-way full length slot top has clips to hold your clubs plus they send a Zero Friction umbrella as part of the package.
