Black Widow Ball Retriever from Softspikes

Fifteen years ago, Softspikes launched the first plastic golf cleats, changing the game forever, while saving golf greens and billions of dollars in golf course and clubhouse maintenance.

Ten-years ago, Softspikes launched the Black Widow and redefined the plastic golf cleat category, forever. Today, PrideSports, maker of Softspikes – the No.1 Cleat on TOUR, is set revolutionise another sector of the market with the launch of the Black Widow Tour Golf Ball Retriever.

The Black Widow Ball Retriever is the industry’s first-ever golf ball retriever that grabs the ball, enabling golfers to recover their golf ball from ditches, ponds and stream with more ease than ever before.

Featuring a unique 8-leg design that securely grabs golf balls and flexible legs that form a mold around the golf ball, the BWT Golf Ball Retriever guarantees that the golf balls can easily captured from a multitude of locations around the golf course. This fashionable and extremely useful device also has a 12ft extendable pole, designed to reach even the trickiest of 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.
