2017 Srixon Z-Star & Srixon Z-Star XV Golf Balls
The 5th generation Srixon Z-Star and Srixon Z-Star XV golf balls, which replaces the 2015 Srixon Z-Star range, will provide players with greater distance, more spin and excellent consistency when hit in windy conditions.
A new core construction has been implemented, which promises to deliver a “Super-soft” E.G.G. (Energetic Gradient Growth) large-diameter core with enhanced outer hardness and inner softness that feels softer than previous models. These golf balls offer higher launch and lower driver spin.
The Srixon Z-Star XV Golf Balls have a new “High-repulsion” E.G.G. large-diameter dual core, which has been redesigned with a larger, softer inner core with varying hardness and an outer core with more consistent hardness.
These core technological updates are combined with newly-developed dimple patterns. A new 338 Speed Dimple Pattern utilises five different dimple sizes better marry up uniformity and occupancy for more efficient and longer golf ball flight.
Decreased drag immediately after launch helps the golf ball travel through the air with less resistance, while still maintaining its speed. By increasing lift after the golf ball reaches its apex, it helps the golf ball stay in the air longer to maximise distance.
To improve spin control and a soft feel around the greens, Srixon say its latest Spin Skin Coating is 13 per cent softer than the previous model.
The high-durability, ultra-thin (0.5mm) urethane cover provides more consistent spin control on approach shots from any lie, especially from the rough. It is also highly durable, with scuff resistance on wedge shots making these golf balls even more sought-after.
