Q & A
Srixon has enjoyed incredible success over the course of the last several years with its two premium golf balls, the Z-Star and Z-Star XV. Since being launched in 2008, Z-Star series golf balls have accounted for more than 450 wins on professional tours around the world, including more than 225 in the last three years alone. Despite all of that success, Srixon has continued to make research-and-development advancements in an effort to deliver even better performance from each ball. The fifth generation of the Z-Star and Z-Star XV has just been released by Srixon, and significant improvements having been made to each. In terms of the new Z-Star, its Energetic Gradient Growth Core features a slightly lower compression, which gives players a softer feel on all shots and improved launch conditions off the tee for more distance. Additionally, the 338 Speed Dimple Pattern has been made more aerodynamic to improve flight conditions for more consistent distance and enhanced control. Also back for the Z-Star golf ball is third generation Spin Skin Technology, as the coating has been made softer and more elastic to improve feel and greenside spin.
