Default surf carts

I was looking at surf carts, They look pretty cool. You can carry a cooler, bucket, rods. They cost about $160 to $229. How good are they, Has any one used them. Please pros and cons.

You ever tried to push anything with wheels through soft sand?
I suppose it has its moments on harder sand or pathways.

I made one several years ago when I lived on LI out of an old handicap walker, plans was in the Fisherman mag. It worked very good. Research some of the old Fisherman mags for plans, very easy to build with very little $$.

I made this cart from a Golf bag cart for 8 bucks, the cost of the cart from a thrift store the whole thing weighs about 6 lbs and glides over hard or soft sand. It holds three rods , spikes and a bucket. I can plug the water column without changing plugs, or fish three bait rods no problem. It folds up and fits in the back of my little wagon..It makes moving down the beach in search of fish pretty easy.

I made one that is basically a WonderWheeler. I love it for long hikes along the beach slingin bait. I broke down and bought Wheeleez and it was the best investment I ever made. They do NOT sink into the sand. I've used them from MA to FL so they have taken me from fine sugar sand to broken shell to rocky beaches and they have not failed me.
The worst day of fishing is better than the best day at work.

Question Re: surf carts

Does anyone own a Fish-n-Mate cart? How do you like it? I'm considering the Jr. 105 model...
