What we say...
Srixon promise more distance, more spin and more consistency in the wind with their fifth generation Z-Star and Z-Star XV golf balls
What we say: The new Srixon Z-Star XV has an enhanced dual Energetic Gradient Growth core and Speed Dimples for long penetrating distance, and the new SpinSkin coating provides exceptional control. Srixon is supporting Prostate Cancer UK this year, donating £1.50 for every dozen Z-Star XVs sold.
Z-Star XV's 4-piece construction means maximum distance with a firmer feel.
Srixon's 3rd generation Spin Skin is 13% softer than the previous version. Srixon say it's more stretchy too, so the ball stretches across more of the face creating more friction and spin.
4-piece construction sees a two-piece core tuned to lower driver spin and increase launch, which delivers maximum distance.
A newly developed 338 dimple pattern. There's five different sized dimples which Srixon reckon lowers drag right after launch and increases lift after the ball reaches its apex. Which helps the ball stay in the air for longer and means exceptional performance in the wind.
The Srixon Z-Star XV's compression comes in at 105, and Srixon reckon you need a sufficient swing speed to compress each Z-Star fully to ensure maximum performance.
While the Z-Star XV performs well at 100+ mph swing speeds, and delivers a mid-high launch and high greenside spin
