What we say...

The latest version of Srixon’s popular Soft Feel and Soft Feel Lady golf balls are the softest and longest ever.

Srixon Soft Feel and Soft Feel Lady were given an upgrade at the end of 2020 with the brand promising the longest version of their hugely successful two-piece golf balls to date.

The new range of Srixon Soft Feel golf balls.

This is the 12th generation of the low-compression, two-piece ball and has Srixon’s softest FastLayer Core yet.

That core is also more resilient, snapping back into shape more quickly after impact for added ball speed, while dramatically reducing long game sidespin for increased accuracy off the tee and on approach shots.

The Srixon Soft Feel golf ball is available in soft white.

A 60 compression and 0.063-inch cover in the Soft Feel and 58 compression and 0.057-inch cover in the Soft Feel Lady combine to provide distance off the tee and increased greenside spin.

All models feature Srixon’s 338 Speed Dimple Pattern, which is designed to reduce drag at launch and increase lift to help deliver a longer, straighter flight, especially in windy conditions.

The balls, which have Ionemer covers, are designed to suit all swing speeds and, in our opinion, provide exceptional value for money for amateur golfers, especially higher handicappers.

The Srixon Soft Feel Lady golf ball is available in Soft White.

Srixon hope the new models will help build on an excellent year for their golf ball business having seen a 30 per cent growth in year-on-year market share to date.

How the Srixon Soft Feel fits into their balls line-up

Srixon Z-Star (£39.99)

Srixon’s original premium ball, the Z-Star was updated in 2021 and is ideal if finesse around the greens and pinpoint approach shots are your keys to your scores. A three-piece 0.6mm-urethane-covered ball, Z-Star offers 90 compression, long distance through low driver spin, a mid flight and the highest greenside spin.

The FastLayer Core starts soft in the centre and gradually becomes firm around its edge, giving high-speed players exceptional feel and plenty of ball speed for maximum distance. The thicker thermoplastic urethane cover features Spin Skin with SeRM, for maximum iron and wedge spin. 338 dimple reduces drag and improves flight for more distance.

Srixon Z-Star XV (£39.99) 

Srixon’s only four-piece ball, the XV was updated in 2021 with everything from its molecules to its dimples pushed to the limit. Used by Masters champion Hideki Matsuyama and 2019 Open Champion Shane Lowry, it’s longer than Z-Star thanks to a reformulated inner core boosts overall resiliency for a faster snap off the clubface for more ball speed and distance.

Expect a mid-high flight and soft feel (102 compression) and plenty of greenside spin thanks to its 0.5mm urethane cover which uses Spin Skin with SeRM. The 338 dimple pattern reduces drag and improves flight.

Srixon Z-Star Diamond (£39.99)

The newest ball in Srixon’s Z-Star series, the three-piece Diamond is played by Brooks Koepka, and combines the best of Z-Star and XV. The new FastLayer Core starts soft in the centre and gradually becomes firm around its edge, giving high-speed players exceptional feel and plenty of ball speed for maximum distance. The thicker thermoplastic urethane cover features , for maximum iron and wedge spin. 338 dimple reduces drag and improves flight for more distance.

Srixon Q-Star Tour (£34.99)

Three-piece urethane-covered ball that provides premium tech in a model that’s suitable for moderate swing speeds. Uses Tour technologies found in the Z-Star series like FastLayer, Spin Skin with SeRM, and Speed Dimples but with a softer compression (72). 338 dimple reduces drag and improves flight for more distance.

Srixon AD333 (£26.99)

Into its 10th generation, the two-piece AD333 is one of the most popular balls with club golfers. The new FastLayer core lowers compression (72) for better flight with lower-lofted clubs, while the Spin Skin with SeRM found in the brand’s premium models improves spin and stopping power. The 338 ‘speed dimple’ pattern helps reduce drag and boost lift and the 1.45mm ionomer cover is very durable.

Srixon Soft Feel (£24.99)

The Soft Feel lives up to its name with 60 compression and a thin ionomer cover for better spin and feel around the greens, while the FastLayer Core combines softness with distance. The 338 dimple pattern helps reduce drag and improve flight through the wind for more distance.

Srixon Ultisoft (£24.99)

The lowest compression ball in Srixon’s line-up (42), the two-piece has a soft ionemer cover for better feel and more greenside spin. The 338 dimple pattern helps reduce drag and improve flight through the wind for more distance.

Srixon Distance (£17.99)

The lowest priced ball in Srixon’s range, the two-piece distance does exactly what it says on the box – gives you more yards. It has a FastLayer Core, durable ionomer cover and a 324 dimple pattern to maximise distance and help your ball fly through wind.
