Wheeleez followed by C-Tug followed by no brand Chinese would be my recommendation of course the budget starts high and goes down too...

a tall glass of cement and a back brace? :lol: ?

i'd avoid anything that goes through the scupper holes.

get something thats suitable for the beaches you launch from.

Wheeleez for me too.

I think the best "trolley"of all is a 4WD. I get envious when I see a 4WD park right up to the edge of the water and unload their kayak.

Having repeatedly watched a huge Hobie get pulled effortlessly up soft-sand beaches on a wheeleez by my retiree fishing mate, while I struggled with a C-Tug under a fly-weight Phoenix (although in my defence it did have fish onboard) I would have no reservations in recommending the Wheeleez, and would order one today if I could afford it.

Got arguably the first Wheelez trolley in the country.. before they were available locally... expensive.. yes.. but never regretted it for a minute !

I bought a Wheeleez Cart last year after similar recommendations and its been amazing!!! I used to really struggle getting my Kayak back to the car after a hard day on the water. Now doesn't seem to matter what the terrain it's always super easy even for someone tiny like me. Would recommend these carts to anyone. Wouldn't be without mine now :)
