I have been playing the AVX all season and was given some ZStar (regular version) this week.  I was a little disappointed but decided to play them and I went out and shot a 73 (good round for me) in my club championship.  Was it a lucky day or do others really like this ball?  I cannot find much positive about this ball.  It all seems to be the CV or nothing.  I do like a softer feeling ball.

Played Srixon for 3-4 years, mostly the Z-star. Also played the XV. Still play them sometimes. Really liked them. I don't think they spin as much as ProVs but you just have to get used to that and allow for a little more runout on chips. Also Srixons are really good in the wind.

I have a 94 mph golf swing, and really like the Sri on line up. Which ball do you think would better suit that swing speed, a qst, or a z-star?

I recall a Titleist area manager saying they regarded Srixon as their biggest rival. The Z-star is a match for any V1 and their lower priced balls outsell everything in the UK.

Z Stars are perhaps my favorite ball, especially the yellow, er, TOUR Yellow.

Last week I won my league championship using 1.

ProV1's are great balls, but IMO Z Stars are better.

I'm a big fan of the Z-Star and am back on them now after running out of original K-Sigs. I like the feel, green side spin is excellent and distance seems similar to most other balls (I'm not a human trackman).

This will be my ball for the next few months without question. Canít argue with the result and they are certainly cheap at the moment.

I’m a fan of the Z-Star myself. I used to play them and then went around trying other brands with varying success. Last season, I went back and picked up a dozen of the Z-Stars and have been very impressed. I am really enjoying the current version in particular. Great in the wind and just the right amount of spin for me.
As a tinkerer, part of me is curious to see what else is out there, but right now I have decided to stay put with the Z-Star. I did not play as much this season as I would have liked but this ball just performed when I needed it to. I have built a lot of trust with it so “Why mess with a good thing?”

Z-Star is a 5 star ball.  Does everything well.  Honestly Srixon's entire line-up is best in class.

   XV gets more hype and is equally awesome depending on your needs. Z-Star will give a tad more greenside spin and softer feel while XV is longer roll out and firmer feel.  Honestly they are really similar and I LOVE both.  

    When they are on sale or previous models you cannot beat the value vs performance.

The Z-Star is the most underrated ball on the market... Just as good of a ball as the Pro V1 in my opinion.
