Srixon is launching it fifth generation Q-Star ball, available in Pure White and Tour Yellow, in North America on Friday.
“The new Q-Star maintains the high-quality performance performance that consumers have come to expect with this golf ball,” said Jeff Brunski, vice president of research and development. “We’ve enhanced this generation with the new FastLayer Core to drive more ball speed and distance from Q-Star.”
The new FastLayer Core starts soft in the centre and gradually becomes firmer around its outer edge for more distance, without sacrificing feel at impact.
FastLayer works in tandem with Q-Star’s 338 Speed Dimple Pattern, used to reduce drag for a more penetrating ball flight for more distance off the tee regardless of playing conditions.
The new Q-Star also features Srixon’s proprietary Spin Skin technology with Slide – Ring Material (SeRM), a urethane compound that coats the cover of every Q-Star golf ball.
Spin Skin with SeRM digs deep into wedge and iron grooves, dramatically increasing friction at impact to maximize spin for more stopping power on every shot.
“With the addition of the new FastLayer Core and Spin Skin with SeRM, the latest generation of Q-Star golf balls deliver superior, all-around performance compared against similar offerings in the market,” said Brunski.
