Srixon Golf has been on a huge run with their golf ball offerings. Earlier this year I had the chance to test and review their new range of tour level golf balls. All of them tested very well and you can check out the review here https://untilthenexttee.blog/2017/03/13/review-srixon-golf-balls-2017/
Recently the Huntington Beach, California company sent out a press release announcing a new version of the two-piece Q-Star. The original Q-Star was an intriguing golf in its own right so it should be fun to see what the new and improved recipe delivers. Spin Skin Technology, lower compression, an attractive price point and a dimple pattern that allows the ball to be easier to control are some of it’s features. Below is the press release that Srixon Golf Marketing Communications Specialist Noelle Zavaleta shared with me.
This ball sounds like it’d be a fun golf ball to put to the test. What say you?
HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. — July 17, 2017 — SRIXON® announces launch of the newly redesigned Q-STAR® golf ball for golfers who demand balanced performance from a more durable, two-piece ball offering. The Srixon Q-STAR is available in Pure White™ and Tour Yellow™ and officially launches in North America on August 18, 2017.
Srixon is a tour-proven golf manufacturer with premium golf balls and club offerings popular with golfers around the world. The Q-STAR golf ball utilizes the same premium technologies found in Srixon’s higher-priced tour balls but offers them in a 2-piece construction that is more durable and affordable.
The new Q-STAR features a lower-compression Energetic Gradient GrowthTMCore, a new third generation Spin Skin™ coating, and a new, more efficient 338 Aerodynamic Speed Dimple™ Pattern. These three technologies combine to deliver balanced performance: longer, more accurate driving distance, better iron control, and improved greenside spin.
“The Q-STAR’s built-in tour technologies should help golfers see great performance in every aspect of their golf game,” said Michael Ross, Senior Product Manager at Srixon. “This is the golf ball for players who seek maximum playability from a more durable, 2-piece design.”
The key technologies inside the new Q-STAR include:
· Lower-Compression Energetic Gradient Growth Core. Q-STAR’s core technology uses variable stiffness to deliver better feel and exceptional distance on every shot.
· Third Generation Spin Skin Coating. This latest iteration of Srixon’s proven ball coating is more elastic with less bonding points so it produces more consistent spin from any lie — especially the rough.
· Aerodynamic 338 Speed Dimple Pattern. Along with more control in the wind, this dimple pattern reduces drag to maximize distance.
The Srixon Q-STAR golf ball officially launches in North America on August 18, 2017, at a MAP of $24.99 per dozen.
