Srixon, a leader in golf ball technology, is pleased to announce the launch of the new Z-STAR and Z-STAR X™ golf balls. The Z-STAR and Z-STAR X are designed to offer best-in-category performance for players seeking the improved distance, spin, and feel preferred by Tour players and competitive golfers worldwide. The Srixon Z-STAR and Z-STAR X golf balls use ultra-thin urethane cover technology, a larger core and a softer cover to radically improve distance, spin and feel.
The new Srixon Z-STAR ball line is now being played by PGA TOUR professionals Vijay Singh and Jim Furyk, as well as a rapidly growing contingent of professional golfers worldwide. Tour victories for the Z-STAR ball line include Henrik Stenson’s victories at the 2008 Nedbank Golf Challenge and the 2008 Omega Mission Hills World Cup, as well as Tim Clark’s win at the 2008 Australian Open.
“The new Z-STAR and Z-STAR X balls have been tested on tour by our entire PGA and Nationwide staff and the feedback has been tremendous,” said Greg Hopkins, President / CEO of Cleveland Golf / Srixon. “If our tour staffers are as pumped up as they are about these new balls, we can’t wait to get these into the hands of golfers everywhere. Besides, with a money back guarantee, they’ve got nothing to lose by comparing them against what will instantly become their former ball of choice.”
The Z-STAR golf ball is designed to be the best-balanced golf ball for the low-to-mid handicap players, seeking a combination of long distance, spin control and soft feel. The Z-STAR X golf ball is a distance-oriented tour-performance ball for players looking for explosive distance and high-spin performance around the greens. The Srixon Z-STAR ball lines both feature new Energetic Gradient Growth core technology, which promotes increased ball speed, as well as high launch and low spin. Srixon’s newly developed 324 large seamless dimples also help reduce wind resistance for increased distance, while the new coating on their super-soft urethane cover significantly improves spin performance from the rough, allowing players to go after the pin from any lie.
