Srixon Z-Star Golf Ball Review


A Srixon Z-Star Golf Ball on a tee

You know how in golfing video games, you can control the spin of the golf ball while it’s in the air? Taking into account wind, terrain, and slope is easy to do in a game but not so much in real life. Thanks to the Srixon Z-Star Golf Ball, golfers are given more control of their shots.

Summary

The Srixon Z-Star Golf Ball is another quality golf ball in the Srixon Star line. The most prominent feature of this golf ball is the improved spinability (a new word I invented). Depending on the golf club angle and swing speed, the Srixon Z-Star will adjust its spin accordingly to optimize both distance and control. This new-and-improved technology called SpinSkin manages to increase frictional force by 18% while improving softness by 21% versus the former model. Although it has a softer cover, the three-layer composition is geared towards faster swingers, and golfers who are more skilled at utilizing ball spin.

Our Thoughts

The Srixon Z-Star Golf Ball is geared toward the more skilled and experienced golfer, although most might not realize it on first glance. Although a softer ball, the technology is designed to use swing strength to improve control, rather than to solely create more distance. One of the few downsides of this golf ball is the thinner cover, which might possibly lead to decreased durability. Of course, if you’re someone who loses golf balls frequently, you may never see first hand the lack of durability. Another reason why the Srixon Z-Star Golf Ball is meant only for fast swingers and control freaks (even though the price lends to low budget golfers).
