I think the Q star Tour feels and sounds better. I actually think the new Bridgestone ball is worse than last year's ball.

Yeah, the 2016 RX is a great ball

Anyone considering the customization option on the QST's right now, beware it ads about 2 weeks to filling the order.

Q-Star Tour, to me, is a little better around the green, very similar off driver, hybrids and irons. A touch softer than the RX, and both are very durable. $30 for a urethane cover ball is the difference. Very close to Z-Star performance.  Both balls are outstanding, but the Q-Star Tour exceeded my expectations and are at the right price point.

I have had some great rounds with the Q Star Tour golf ball. Srixon has made a great ball and put it out at a great price. Going to play that ball for as long as Srixon keeps making them.

Did a comparison between these two balls on course today.  I think they were pretty close but I think the RX was the winner for me personally.  I was hitting a bunch of practice shots and when I drove up to the next shot, it just seemed like the Bstone was usually the longer/straighter shot.  I'm a long time e5 user, so maybe I just get along with the bridgestone better for some reason.

I think at 30 retail for Qstar vs 40 retail for RX330, I would choose the qstar.  But for 35 or maybe even cheaper, the RX probably takes it for me.  Part of me wants to reward Srixon with the business for bringing such a high quality ball to market for 30 bucks.  

I'm personally interested in trying the RX vs the RXS.  Has anyone compared these two balls?  I choose to give the RX a shot first, thinking the lower spin might be straighter off the tee.  Now that I like the RX, i'm intrigued by the RXS

I find the 2016 RXS is softer off all clubs, has more greenside spin, and distance is every bit as long as the RX.

I don't know if its my Srixon Z565 irons or the Q-star Tour...but the ball feels so soft and it has great spin.  I used to hit with Bridgestone E6 that felt a bit harder...It at be the ball/club combo too.
