Looking for some advice. I'm replacing the spikes on my footjoys (quick lock) and have about 4 that are stuck. Busted my wrench and ripped through the spikes. Any suggestions on how to remove?

1. Get a better wrench.
2. Drill out the wrench holes (probably don't need the drill, just the bit).
3. Take it to your pro shop or where you bought the replacements.

I've used a pair of long nosed pliers with a fair amount of success.

Just need to wear a thick leather glove on the hand that is holding the shoe in case your other hand slips.

In the winter i pull my spikes out every 5 or 6 rounds and clean out the cavity in the shoE.

In summer i do it every few months

Then they don't get stuck
