Srixon Q-STAR – A softer feeling tour-style golf ball?

Srixon Q Star 1

Could the all-new Srixon Q-STAR TOUR be the golf ball for you in 2020?

This third generation of the Q-STAR is, in essence, a softer feeling alternative to Srixon’s tour-quality Z-STAR offerings and has been engineered with club golfers in mind.

The foundation of this ball is the FastLayer Core. With its gradual transition from soft inner core to firm outer edge, FastLayer behaves like a core with thousands of layers, delivering distance and soft feel.

Srixon says this is their softest FastLayer Core, which is the largest core in its class. That means distance and short game spin that is seen on tour, but a softer feel that isn’t found on tour.

To further boost distance there is a 338 Speed Dimple Pattern that provides a penetrating ball flight in any conditions by increasing lift and reducing drag to maximise distance.

Also, the new Q-STAR TOUR features Srixon’s proprietary Spin Skin technology with Slide-Ring Material (SeRM), a urethane compound that we first saw introduced in last year’s Z-STAR.

The SeRM urethane cover digs deep into wedge and iron grooves, dramatically increasing friction at impact. That extra friction means more spin and more control on every approach shot into the green.

Finally, a new side stamping design helps aid in alignment for improved aim, accuracy, and confidence on the greens.

“The new Q-STAR TOUR is a tour-calibre golf ball, delivering a softer feel at impact,” said Jeff Brunski, Vice President of Research and Development.

He continued, “we’ve enhanced this generation with the new FastLayer Core to drive more ball speed and distance, while the SeRM urethane cover offers maximum spin and stopping power.”

If you prioritise soft feel but still want to game a golf ball packed with tour-trusted technologies then the Q-STAR is worth your considerations. Plus, at £34.99 per dozen you are getting a lot of tech and performance for a pretty reasonable price.
