CHAMP Spikes at 2008 PGA Fall Expo

CHAMP Spikes today announced its presence in booth 745 at the 2008 PGA Fall Expo, August 25th through the 27th, at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, NV. CHAMP Spikes has teamed up with one of its biggest west coast distributors, AMA Golf Company and will display the extremely popular line of CHAMP ScorpionStinger™ Spikes.

CHAMP Spikes revamped the top-selling ScorpionStinger™ line in 2008 proving the best can get better. The top-selling men’s ScorpionStinger™ used exclusive material and technological advancements for a more supportive spike as the yellow traction legs are thicker, yet softer, for better cushioning and longer lasting performance. The black traction legs have been slightly elongated to help improve both traction and durability, while reducing clogging.

CHAMP also redesigned the Lady ScorpionStinger™ keeping the same tour-tested structure, but reducing the spike by 15% to better fit the soles of a lady’s shoe. The change eliminates over crowding and solidifies the Lady Scorpion Stinger™ as the only true women’s spike on the market. This spike has also undergone a compositional change, reducing the hardness with the same technologies as its male version making it more comfortable to wear.

Along with the Scorpion Stinger™ line, CHAMP representatives Marty Greenwald, National Sales Manager and Jessica Aversa, Marketing Manager will also be at booth 745 to answer any questions and explain the advanced traction technologies utilized in the different CHAMP Spikes models.

“This show is something CHAMP always looks forward to,” said Marty Greenwald, “The Mandalay Bay Convention Center provides a great atmosphere to interact with customers who you might not deal with on a day to day basis.”

 

CHAMP and ECCO Announce New Partnership

CHAMP has added another partner to its growing list. When ECCO introduces its 2007 Golf collection of classic and casual men’s and women’s golf shoes, it will now also be available with CHAMP spikes.

In addition to the spikes, the two new ECCO product groups Women’s Casual Pitch and the Men’s Flexor Series will come equipped with CHAMP’s patented Q-LOK® system. Q-LOK is the industry’s quickest and easiest receptacle system to use. The spikes can be removed and replaced with just ¼ of a turn of the wrench.

CHAMP and ECCO are both known for their innovation, quality and comfort. CHAMP has long been thought of as the industry leader concerning the design and performance of golf spikes for golfers of all levels. Similarly, ECCO has that same reputation in the footwear industry. Both companies put design and high performance at the forefront of their core values.

“We saw this as a perfect match for both companies” said Harris MacNeill, president of CHAMP “ECCO has built a reputation for being an innovator in the use of advanced materials, high performance and styling. That’s how we see ourselves in the traction technology industry”

“We have great expectations for our new partnership with CHAMP.” said Henning Schlaikjer-Petersen, Division Manager, ECCO Golf “When it comes to styling, quality and durability, CHAMP and ECCO are a perfect match. That’s why we decided to team up with them. Their Q-LOK system is comfortable, and the spikes are easy and quick to change. Our customers have come to expect the best from our shoes, and they should get the same experience with their spikes.”

Both companies also share the distinction of longevity. CHAMP is celebrating their 75th anniversary this year, while ECCO celebrated their 40th in 2003.

Currently, CHAMP spikes and their Q-LOK system are original equipment in all Nike, Dexter, Hi-Tec and now ECCO shoes.
