Srixon has released the Srixon Z-Star premium golf ball range, promising golfers long-hitting performance and increased spin around the greens. The Z-Star and Z-Star XV feature a number of key technical advancements to improve upon predecessors, with a newly developed Speed Dimple Pattern, enhanced Spin Skin, new Energetic Gradient Growth (EGG) core and a urethane cover for an even softer feel.
The new 324 Speed Dimple Pattern features a more uniform surface area for lower aerodynamic resistance. Srixon says this gives even more airflow around the ball during flight, providing the Z-Star and Z-Star XV with a powerful trajectory and longer distance.
Srixon Z-STAR also features a new super-soft EGG large-diameter core. This offers a greater contrast between the hard outer region and soft inner than the previous model, meaning higher launch angles and lower spin rates are produced from the tee, while crucially still maintaining the new Z-Star ‘s soft feel.
In the new Srixon Z-Star XV, a newly developed, high-resistance Ionomer ultra-thin mid-layer has been added. This increases mid-layer hardness, further improving the contrast between the hard outer and soft inner for high launch angles and low spin, resulting in a firmer feel and even more distance than the Z-Star.
Srixon’s newly developed Spin Skin coating is now 21 percent softer than the previous model. This, combined with the seven percent softer ultra-thin, super-soft neo-urethane cover, gives golfers a 25 percent increase in interaction with clubface on impact than the previous model to offer a softer feel and consistent spin performance. The Z-Star and Z-Star XV RRP £45 per dozen.
