Soft spikes (contradiction?) were the invention of a country club manager who could not get his board of directors to YET AGAIN approve a budget for new clubhouse carpets!!! They have absolutely sweet bugger all to do with playing golf, soft spikes are for drinking beer while not wrecking the carpet. Steel spikes...wear em if ya got em.

Here's those pictures IOZ. They are twist-lock spikes and go in any of the newer shoes, I have mine in an older model footjoy.

I wonder how these compare to the real thing, but it sure is better than just plastic...

IOZ, I haven't been fortunate enough to play with real spikes, but you are correct in saying that theses are way better than plastic!

Everyone owes it to themselves to at least play one round of proper golf with proper shoes and steel spikes.

It really is a wonderful enlightening experience.

I believe those are the "Pro Stinger" and are available at www.golfspikes.com

You still see guys on tour wearing this version.
