Srixon Z-Star XV Golf Ball Review
I remember the first time I ever went golfing at my local course, I got paired up with a man who looked at least forever years old. In the time it took him to bend over and tee up his golf ball, I could write a six novels. But to my dismay, this guy would stick every shot exactly where he wanted to, especially approaching the green. If I had to guess, he was using Srixon Z-Star XV Golf Balls.
The Srixon Z-Star XV Golf Ball has many similarities to other options in the Srixon Star line of golf balls, but has a couple important differences. This golf ball’s cover is one of the softest and thinnest on the market today, with improved friction control for iron shots. It also has a very low compression, making the Srixon Z-Star XV Golf Ball an overall very soft ball.
To sum up, the Srixon Z-Star XV Golf Ball is a solid golf ball, but not for everyone. Since the golf ball is incredibly soft, it makes for a great option for slow swinging golfers. On the other hand, one of the main advantages of these types of Srixon golf balls is the stopping power of the SpinSkin cover, which lends itself most valuable for more accurate golfers. As someone who swings relatively slow but has good accuracy, the Srixon Z-Star XV Golf Ball makes sense to maximize my distance and optimize my short range accuracy via stopping power. Before I was accurate with my wedges, I found myself hitting golf balls on the front of the green, only to watch them set me up for a three-putt. In our opinion, amateurs would be better served using golf balls with less stopping power to quickly learn about the lyes of different greens and force them to improve accuracy. So while the Srixon Z-Star XV Golf Ball is a pretty niche option, we think any golfers with slow swings and great accuracy can be greatly served.
