Srixon Z Star and Z Star XV Golf Balls
In the mail for testing recently were a dozen each of Srixon’s Z Star and Z Star XV Golf Balls.
These are the sixth generation of the Z-Star series golf ball. They feature a new “FastLayer Core,” which starts soft in the center and gradually becomes firmer around the edges. This, Srixon says, greatly enhances ball speed while maintaining exceptional feel at impact.
Meanwhile, the cover features a new “Spin Skin technology with Slide-Ring Material (SeRM)” This urethane compound is designed to take “unprecedented”levels of shearing force without breaking its molecular bonds. This, Srixon says, Spin Skin with SeRM is able to dig deep into your wedge and iron grooves, dramatically increasing friction and maximizing spin for more control and more stopping power on every shot.
The 338 Speed Dimple Pattern on each Z-STAR Series golf ball improves overall aerodynamics for better flight performance, even in the toughest wind conditions, with drivers, woods and irons.
The sixth generation Z-STAR XV features a softer urethane cover and Spin Skin with SeRM, which significantly increases greenside spin for more short game control. It features a four-piece construction with a smaller inner core and larger outer core for more distance off the tee.
Similarly, the new Z-STAR golf ball features Spin Skin with SeRM, which increases greenside spin and short game control, while maintaining that soft feel. In addition, the 2019 Z-STAR employs a three-piece construction and slightly increased compression with a harder mantle layer for more ball speed, reduced spin and more distance.
· New FastLayer Core: The FastLayer Core starts soft in the center and gradually becomes firm around its edge, giving high-speed players exceptional feel and enhanced ball speed for maximum distance.
· 4TH Generation Spin Skin with SeRM: A new coating with flexible molecular bonds digs deep into wedge and iron grooves, maximizing spin for more control and more stopping power.
· 338 Speed Dimple Pattern: The 338 Speed Dimple Pattern offers less drag and more lift to boost overall distance, while flying straight even in the toughest wind conditions.
