Lewi- at your age if advise against a pure sprint spike. Firstly it would be good for you to do a wider Dane of things than just sprint (and any jump or md event in sprint spikes is an injury waiting to happen) and secondly they will beat your shins and ankles up. My seniors only wear them to compete in, sticking to md spikes the rest of the time.
At this stage I’d suggest you get some multipurpose allround spikes, or failing that some md ones. At your age the timing of your growth spurts is going to have a monumentally bigger impact on your performance than the slight benefit of having a stiff spike plate.
