Do you even check your spikes? The Lady Scorpion Stinger
by Carly Frost
September 26, 2011

I'm ashamed to say that after a hectic summer of golf my shoes are in a terrible state. And it was only when I received a new pack of pink and white 'Lady Scorpion Stinger' soft spikes from Champ in the post last week that I even bothered to look at the damage that had been done to the underside of my shoes - and what a shameful state the spikes were in!

Half of them were missing and those that remained were badly worn and broken - no wonder I've been struggling to stay balanced in my swing in recent weeks.

Now if you, like me, would rather go out and buy a brand new pair of golf shoes than change your spikes then the Zarma spike might just change your mind. The beauty of this spike is that it literally twists and clicks into place - no need for one of those awkward spike keys to remove and replace your spikes. So if your shoe is actually still in good condition and it's just your spikes that are worn then take my advice and save yourself some serious money. Simply purchase a pack of Champ spikes and replace them. It's really easy!

Champ Lady Stinger spikeAs for the benefits are wearing this spike Champ say the spike has been designed to stay clean and not clog with grass and dirt so that you maintain maximum traction in your swing in any weather, plus it's environmentally friendly. It's 15% smaller to fit womens golf shoes and made from a soft material that means you'll feel like you're wearing a new pair of shoes just by changing your spikes. And thanks to a wear indicator (pink C-shape in the centre of the spike) you'll instantly know when the spikes need replacing so no excuses!

The Lady Stinger costs under £10 for a pack and is available in three models to suit every shoe type. For more information visit
