Srixon is launching the seventh generation Z-STAR Series golf ball.
Srixon’s Z-STAR and Z-STAR XV are available in Pure White and Tour Yellow and officially launch in North America on February 26.
The seventh-generation Z-STAR features a 0.6mm cover that is thicker than previous generations for enhanced spin and control around the greens. When paired with the FastLayer Core, used to dramatically increase ball speed for enhanced distance, the new generation also offers improved feel.
“The new Z-STAR and Z-STAR XV golf balls are specifically designed for better players and they feature advanced technology to add performance from tee to green,” said Jeff Brunski, vice president of research and development.
“The Z-STAR XV is played by some of the longest hitters on professional tours around the world and this new generation features a reformulated inner core to add even more distance,” he said.
“The new Z-STAR produces the highest greenside spin of any ball in our line-up, thanks to its super soft urethane cover and Spin Skin coating. If you demand the absolute best performance, the new Z-STAR and Z-STAR XV are made for you,” h added.
For 2021, the new Z-STAR XV features a reformulated inner core for heightened resilience for improved ball speed and distance without sacrificing feel.
Both of the new Z-STAR Series golf balls feature new Spin Skin technology with Slide-Ring Material (SeRM) and a urethane compound that coats the cover of every Z-STAR Series golf ball.
By taking new levels of shearing force without breaking its molecular bonds, Spin Skin with SeRM is able to dig deep into your wedge and iron grooves to increase friction and spin for more control and more stopping power on every shot.
The new Z-STAR Series golf balls also use Slide-Ring Material.
“Engineered for more spin and control, the Z-STAR Series features a Spin Skin coating enhanced with SeRM, an extremely flexible material,” said Brunski. “Never before has Srixon combined so many technologies in one golf ball to produce more friction for more spin around the green.”
The 338 Speed Dimple Pattern on each Z-STAR Series golf ball is used to improve overall aerodynamics for better flight performance, even in tough wind conditions, with drivers, woods, and irons.
Srixon is distributed in Canada by the Mint Green Group.
