Go yellow with Srixon's Gold-Medal-winning Z-STAR line of golf balls
The golf ball with the funny name and weird color keeps getting more attention.
I’m not going green like everybody else. I’m going yellow. I’ve fallen hard for the new Srixon Z-STAR Tour Yellow golf balls. For whatever reason, I just strike them with more consistency. Maybe I see them better on the downswing. When they do land in the rough or the woods, they are definitely easier to spot.
My first choices for golf balls have always been Titleist Pro V1 and Pro V1x and Bridgestone, but Srixon has me rethinking that strategy. Seems I’m not alone.
Srixon had eight models - six Z-STAR and two Q-STAR golf balls – that were named Golf Digest “Hot List” Gold medal winners in 2012 (They are listed below).
The SL Pure White and Tour Yellow – two Gold Medalists - are designed for golfers that don’t possess tour-level swing speeds like me, yet still demand the precision and feel of a high-end ball. These balls boast the best balance of each aspect of Srixon’s STAR technology (Spin, Trajectory, Acceleration and Responsiveness). The thin urethane cover increases greenside control and the large core improves distance.
Pink balls still aren’t cool for dudes, but yellow? That’s another story. Most of the high-end Srixon balls cost $44.99 a dozen, not a bad price for better scores and fewer lost balls.
“We are very proud of this accomplishment for such a relatively young brand here in the U.S.,” Chris Beck, Brand Manager of Srixon® - U.S.A, said in a statement. “Srixon has been manufacturing golf balls for over 80 years, and this experience has led to a heritage of ‘Top in Class’ manufacturing, which translates to ‘Top in Class’ products.”
