I have another 5 rounds with QST and without question, this is the highest launching ball I have played off the irons. Higher than the DUO U, Chrome Soft or even the regular DUO. I'm a mid 90s swinger with the driver.
Frankly, I'm struggling to flight it down when needed. Not necessarily a deal breaker, but the Zstar might be a better fit.
I tend to think the compression and swing speed really does apply to Srixon balls. I like them all, but like the XV, them Z and them QST.
For me nothing beats the XV right now. Nothing. Even though my SS is 100-103 I so have an aggressive transition and release which imparts a lot of spin on the ball. Off the driver and mid irons the QST spins a little too much , which keeps it straight but shorter.
I can see why people love the ball though. Really Srixon has the best overall line up on the market
I didn't like the XV found it a little harder than my Bridgestone B330 RXS. I like to play the QS Tour (probably similar to my B330RXS), we don't get it here in Asia,
but we do have the Srixon Tri - Star, which I think is the equivalent to the QST & AD333 Tour.
Here is the lastest ball in Asia released by Srixon - its a 4 piece ball!
The XV is not going to be comparable to your B330RXS... It would be comparable to the B330. The Regular Zstar would be more like the B330S. you are right about the QST being closer to the RXS...
I actually meant the Z-Star ball not the XV in my original post.
That being so I found out the hard way. The problem is you cannot get B330RX/RXS in Hong Kong anymore there is no distributor. So when I went to get the RX/RXS my usual shop suggested the Z Star as an alternative and I was thinking it would be similar. The Z Star is different ball all together probably more suited to the swing closer to 100mph+ swinger (I'm mid 90s). The Z-Star just didn't work for me just that fraction a little to hard. So now I know. I like to play a 3 piece ball and QST, Ad333 Tour or Tri-Star should fit the bill, but are harder to get in Asia so I got to give the QS a shot as a back up ball.
I eventually got some RXS. I still have the Z-Stars in the bag. When I payed them i had 3 crappy rounds and my game was really off. Maybe I should give them another try.
