shoe features a square shape instead of a curve, allowing for a wider gripping
area for flip pitchers than a traditionally shaped shoe. With a generic U-shaped shoe, the turn pitcher has an advantage over a flip pitcher
in that they have more room along the blade of the shoe to adjust their
grip. As you can see by its shape, when pitching with the CHALLENGERS, no one has
that gripping advantage.
Challenger was designed to compete directly with the Gordon Horseshoe when it
was made in the US by Queen City Forge in Cincinnati, OH. Manufacturing
rights of the Gordon shoe were sold by Queen City a few years ago and it has
since been revived by Omega Horseshoe Company in Utah, who has shipped the
manufacturing overseas to a forge in China.
The body of the Challenger shoe
is nearly the same as that of the Gordon, but it has improved hooks and
sharper points so that it holds the stake better and measures better than
the Gordon shoe. It feels just about the same, but should throw even
better because the tips are even heavier than what was on the Gordon.
You really can't go wrong with the US made Challenger!
This is the
perfect professional styled shoe for clubs to purchase in quantity for use in
league play. It has the universal qualities of the Mustang due to the
unique double sided heel cleats-- You can throw any turn or flip equally
well. It is priced to be sold in quantity and the two pair sets are marked
so that you can tell each pair apart even if the paint is worn off!
shoe is designed to be pitched effectively by amateur pitchers. It has
excellent balance and is easy for just about anyone to pick up and throw with
little or no practice in advance.
edges of each shoe are smooth and nicely rounded, allowing the shoe to
"pull" out of your hand with ease. This also helps reduce
fatigue and blistering, which is common when using sharper edged shoes.
Great for team play when one player throws
a flip & the other throws a turn.
Some of this might be a bit
redundant, but it's all worth saying again...This shoe is
manufactured from the highest quality, most durable alloy on the market and
carries our famous one-year no hassle factory warranty... If they break under
