What we say...

The 2021 Srixon Z-Star golf ball has had every feature pushed to the limit with a new core, cover and dimple pattern.

Now in its seventh generation, the three-piece premium ball has been redesigned from the ground up to create, alongside the four-piece Z-Star XV, what Srixon say is their best-ever Z-Star series.

A new ‘FastLayer Core’ starts soft in the centre and gradually becomes firm around its edge, designed to give high-speed players exceptional feel and enhanced ball speed for maximum distance.

The new Srixon Z-Star 2021 golf ball.

The golf ball uses fourth-generation ‘Spin Skin technology with Slide-Ring Material (SeRM)’, a urethane compound that coats every cover.

The Z-Star balls are the first in the world to use SeRM, with the coating designed to take unprecedented levels of shearing force without breaking its molecular bonds. Srixon say this allows the balls to dig deep into your wedge and iron grooves for dramatically increased friction and maximised spin, giving more control and stopping power on every shot.

And there’s a new ‘338 Speed Dimple' pattern, designed to create less drag and more lift to boost overall distance and maintain a straight flight even in the toughest winds.

The 2021 Srixon Z-Star's cover is 0.1mm thicker than its predecessor, the 0.6mm cover providing enhanced spin and control around the greens.

The brand say that when it is paired with the revolutionary FastLayer Core it dramatically increases ball speed to deliver maximum distance and offers unparalleled feel. 

The new Z-Star also produces the highest greenside spin of any Srixon ball.

Should I play the Srixon Z-Star or Srixon Z-Star XV golf ball?

Both of the premium golf balls are aimed at better players seeking either maximum spin (Z-Star) or maximum distance (Z-Star XV).

The three-layer Z-Star feels softer than the four-layer dual-core Z-Star XV and is designed for a mid-height flight as opposed to the XV's mid-high flight.

The Z-Star spins more than the XV and has a thicker urethane cover having been increased by 0.1mm from previous generations to create even more control around the greens.

While the Z-Star is still long, the XV is designed to be the longer ball with its newly-formulated inner core adding resiliency to help create even more ball speed.

The 2021 Z-Star and Z-Star XV golf balls are available in white and yellow.

What Srixon say about the seventh-generation Z-Star series

“Engineered for more spin and control, the Z-STAR Series features a Spin Skin coating enhanced with SeRM, an extremely flexible material,” said Joe Miller, Srixon’s European Product Manager.

“Never before has Srixon combined so many technologies in one golf ball, to produce more friction for more spin around the green.”

“The new Z-Star and Z-Star XV golf balls are specifically designed for better players and they feature advanced technology to add performance from tee to green. 

“The XV is played by some of the longest hitters on professional Tours around the world, and this new generation features a reformulated inner core to add even more distance.

"The new Z-Star produces the highest green-side spin of any ball in our line-up, thanks to its super soft urethane cover and Spin Skin coating.

“If you demand the absolute best performance, the new Z-Star and Z-Star XV are made for you.”
