Soft Spikes
« on: April 24, 2018, 02:54:30 PM »
I have two pairs of TW14 golf shoes. They’re super comfortable and waterproof and durable as hell. They have tons of rounds on them and when cleaned up could pass for new. Problem is the spikes are shot (I replaced them 2 years ago the first time) and some of them I couldn’t get out then so I just left them. Now they’re completely gone and the ones I put in 2 years ago are shot. 

But now I can’t get hardly any of them out. The wrench twists the base material in the holes and “strips” them basically. The shoes have some molded cleats in the soles so I don’t find them too slippery but they would definitely benefit from new spikes. We had our first league round (rained the entire time) last night and found myself sliding a bit more than I’d like.

Anyone else ever bad any trouble like this? The shoes are too nice and comfortable to just scrap plus I don’t want to spend $200 for new ones when these are in such good shape.

Not sure what locking mechanism they have but you could try drilling them out?

Maybe with a judiciously applied drop or two of PB Blaster or your choice of penetrant?

My main pair are Tiger '13 still and they are still in relatively good shape.
I've switched out the spikes 3 times already and every time it is a chore.   Some of them required some assistance with with a pair of vice grips.
Clamp the entire base and turn it hard.   They come off eventually.

I used to be good about twisting off my spikes after each round, cleaning them in soap & water, and putting them back in the night before a round in random order like tire rotation on your car. Then I got lazy...

I think I’m going to put some penetrating oil on them and then take blow torch to the thread area so the heat can loosen them up.

Stay tuned!!!

Almost all my golf shoes are Nike's...preferably the older (actual real leather) TW and Zoom Air models, before they went to the sneaker/soccer type shoes.  Nike uses the Q-Lok/Q-fit (purple color code).  I've never had problems with the spikes like you've described, but I don't play tons of rounds.  Not sure what's the best way to extract those worn spikes.  If it was me I probably would end up mauling it with some needle nose pliers or pull out my Dremel.

Did a little more research on spikes for Nike shoes.  It seems that all styles before 2010 Nike used the Q-Lok system.  All styles after 2010 use the Tri-Lok/Fast Twist system.  The TW '15 shoes uses the PINS system.

So I tried dales trick of putting them in an inch of hot (and soapy) water and let them sit for a couple hours. They came right out and I now have all new spikes!
