My pro tells me that the M Project have a new spike system.  The only spikes he carries for them are no good for me.  Can anyone tell me of some spikes for these shoes?  I have had one or two out, and they are not the fast twist, at least I think.

They use any spike that uses the PINS system.  Below is a link to Softspikes Website with information.

I wish they would burn the PINS system. I lose at least one spike a round...they just fall out.

I honestly don't see how this is possible.  I have played 50+ rounds on mine and have yet to lose one.  You must be twisting in a way that makes them come out.  That or they are gripping too much into firm ground?

If it is that much of an issue, call footjoy customer service and complain.  Maybe they will give you a pair of the spikeless.

I agree with them falling out.  Any idea when they are coming with some different cleats than the current offering?

My buddy had them for a couple weeks and a spike fell out. Couldn't find the new spikes anywhere and wrote to customer service they sent him a new set.

In researching buying some M project shoes I came across some comments from a Footjoy employee at the Footjoy forums. He said that with the pins system and this goes for install and taking out, you turn the cleat only for the three clicks and it is in. Same with taking it out, listen for the three clicks and it is out. You do not tighten these cleats like the traditional ones.

my spiked pair are new so I have not yet had to change the cleats.

You can't turn them past 3 clicks without ripping the cleat apart. They still fall out.

I've walked about 40 rounds on my Project M's, yet to have one fall out.  I think you guys are doing something wrong.

I have no personal experience with the new PINS spike system other than what I've seen online. It appears to be a deficiency with the spike design as the Adidas shoes that use the same PINS spikes have this problem too. I predict this system won't last long and will go the way of the Betamax.

The PINS system from what I read is to keep the shoe lower to the ground as it is a low profile system.  The problem if you look closely at the system is that the plastic in the shoe is too fragile and easily destroyed if you've not cleaned the area really well.  Also it's my belief that if you where to stumble and drag your foot the spike would pull on the system and destroy the delicate piece that is supposed to hold the spike.  Anyway they need a more robust socket and they shouldn't have any more problems.  I personally like the system but it needs to be changed.

ive had one of the front spikes come out on my right shoe a couple times.  it was late in the year so the ground was much harder.  since it came out during the round i didnt have time to clean the grove out properly.  after it happened the second time, i took all the spikes out and cleaned everything up and put them back in and havent had an issue yet.  i just put the adidas in them for the upcoming season so those fit just fine.

The originals have certainly been fantastic for me.  How difficult is it to replace these?  Might be the replacement or damage removing the worn spike.

I replaced my project M spikes with Softspikes Stealth Pins system cleats.  My recollection from early threads (no pun intended) is that the spikes that originally came with the Project M shoes were defective and that later Pins ones were a better system.

No problem with these  staying in, though in fairness to longevity I don't wear these all the time, keeping them for dry conditions and sometimes eschewing them for firmer support shoes.
