What Kind Of Golf Spikes Do I Need

So, you got a new pair of golf shoes for Christmas and you already warn the spikes down to a point where you are slipping during your golf swing? Did I guess correct?

Now you are asking yourself What Kind Of Golf Spikes Do I Need. You are most likely referring to the receptacle part of the golf spike, which is what plugs into your golf shoe. Well, I counted a total of 8 different receptacle options to choose from. So, if you purchased your golf shoes within that past 20 years, it’s most likely one of these 8 options.

  1. Large Plastic Insert System 
  2. Metal Thread Insert System 
  3. Q-Lok System
  4. Performance Insert System (PINS)
  5. Tri-Lok System
  6. Fast Twist Insert System
  7. Slim-Lok System
  8. Fast Twist 3.0 Insert System

You most likely have one of these types of golf spike insert system on your golf shoe, now the trick is to figure out which one you have.

Don’t worry though, I got you covered. You see, SoftSpikes have created a simple diagram for you to follow. If you go over to amazon, you will see that SoftSpikes posted their diagram in the pictures area.
