PrideSports, maker of Softspikes, has launched the new Black Widow Tour (BWT) golf ball retriever, 15 years after the revolutionary introduction of the first plastic golf cleats.

Softspikes launched the Black Widow and redefined the plastic golf cleat category, and now the number one cleat on tour is set to revolutionise another sector of the market with the launch of the BWT golf ball retriever.

The device is the first of its kind that enables golfers to reach and recover with more ease. The BWT features a unique eight-leg design that securely grabs golf balls which guarantees that they can be easily captured from various locations.

“The Black Widow Tour golf ball retriever is yet another exciting addition to the Softspikes family of golf cleats and accessories and once again demonstrates our position as one of golf’s most innovative brands,” commented Louise Roe, business unit manager.

The BWT also has a 12ft extendable pole and protective head-cover. For more information, visit
