2013 Srixon Z-STAR & Z-STAR XV Golf Ball available August 8th, 2013
Just a few weeks ago our friends at Cleveland Golf ~ Srixon ~ Never Compromise were kind enough to send us a couple of sleeves of the 2013 Srixon Z-STAR Golf Ball and Z-STAR XV golf balls with Spin Skin technology. My first impression.. I really believe that people should try these balls! Wow! what a great feeling …you will be impressed with the performance of these new Srixon Z-STAR & Z-STAR XV balls.
The new 2013 Srixon Z-STAR & Z-STAR XV golf balls are the most technically advanced tour performance golf balls Srixon has ever created. The New Z-STAR and Z-STAR XV provides two distinct tour offerings that have been re-designed, re-calculated and re-formulated to produce the best balance of tour performance across all clubs in the bag.
The Z-STAR XV is a dual core construction ball designed to optimize trajectory and spin off the tee for players with faster swing speeds. I used the ball during my round at the Diplomat Golf Course in Hallandale Beach and I can tell you that the ball feels a little bit harder than the Z-STAR and is way longer off the tee but the cover feels soft… I know this is contradicting; but Srixon has designed a brand new, very soft cover called Spin Skin that improves greenside spin, feel and control without sacrificing distance. According to Srixon this new coat increases ball friction by as much as 20%, the end result a distance golf ball that has a great bite and added playability around greens. Out of the two balls I tested this ball was definitely my favorite and it is a ball that I can easily put in my bag!
The new 2013 Z-STAR golf ball is a softer ball with a large core inside designed for slower to average swing speeds. Srixon calls it highly resilient soft energetic gradient growth core and it is the engine that drives the ball as it provides variable high performance specs required with every club. This ball does not have (or needs) the spin skin coating as it is a very versatile ball, easy to spin, soft to contact, highly responsive and all around great ball to play with.
Srixon Golf is definitely looking to position their golf balls on top of the ball rankings and for the first time a serious performance ball that will shake Titleist, Callaway and Bridgestone’s ground. In my opinion Srixon Golf has produced a winner with both the 2013 Z-STAR and Z-STAR XV golf balls. The new Z-STAR and Z-STAR XV golf balls will be available in stores August 8th and I will highly recommend golfers of all levels to try them out. Is a terrific ball, very soft to the contact and very responsive around greens. The Z-STAR golf balls with Spin Skin technology have already earned more than 40 professional wins worldwide. Here is a list of some of the many players currently using the new Z-STAR & Z-STAR XV balls w/ Spin Skin technology…
- PGA Tour: Graeme McDowell, Keegan Bradley, Robert Allenby, Kevin Stadler, Vijay Singh, Charlie Beljan
- European Tour: Miguel Angel Jimenez, Shane Lowry
