Srixon® is pleased to announce the introduction of the new 4th generation of Z-STAR™ series golf balls favored by world tour professionals, as well as other competitive golfers worldwide. The new 2015 Z-STAR series is the most technically advanced tour performance golf ball Srixon has ever developed. The new Z-STAR and Z-STAR XV provide two distinct tour offerings that have been re-designed, re-calculated and re-formulated to produce the best balance of tour performance across all clubs in the bag.
The new Z-STAR golf ball combines next generation SpinSkin™ and Speed Dimples™ innovation to give golfers unmatched feel and control, and the Energetic Gradient Growth™ core delivers incredible distance. The Z-STAR’s new 2nd generation SpinSkin increases frictional force by 18% and overall cover softness by 21% compared to the previous Z-STAR golf ball, leading to more greenside spin and touch. Next generation 324 Speed Dimple™ technology combines uniformity of dimple design with higher surface coverage, creating increased distance and wind resistance. The Z-STAR’s Energetic Gradient Growth Core’s advance construction also optimizes S.T.A.R. Performance™ (Spin, Trajectory, Acceleration, and Responsiveness).
The new Z-STAR XV golf ball has an enhanced dual Energetic Gradient Growth Core and Speed Dimples for long penetrating distance and the new SpinSkin coating provides exceptional control for golfers. The Z-STAR XV’s new 2nd generation SpinSkin increases frictional force by 18% and overall cover softness by 21% compared to the previous Z-STAR XV golf ball, leading to more greenside spin and touch. Next generation 324 Speed Dimple™ technology combines uniformity of dimple design with higher surface coverage, creating increased distance and wind resistance. The Z-STAR XV’s Energetic Gradient Growth Core’s advance construction also optimizes S.T.A.R. Performance™ (Spin, Trajectory, Acceleration, and Responsiveness).
“This new 4th generation Z-STAR series highlights our quest for real innovation,” said Chris Beck, Brand Manager for Srixon. “Validated by our tour staff, the new SpinSkin technology is one of the first “Short Game” specific innovations that create great stopping power greenside without negatively effecting distance or control.”
The Z-STAR and the Z-STAR XV will carry a MAP price of $44.99, and are both available in Pure White or Tour Yellow.
