I really wanted to like them.
I played two rounds with them and lost 2 balls and shot some crappy scores.
Being a fairly consistent misser of greens, my up and down skills are pretty good.
For some reason, mental perhaps, I couldn't get the chrome softs to stop near the hole.
Also, my drives didn't go nearly as far.
Doesn't make them bad balls, just didn't work for me.

The Chrome Soft has less spin off the driver, and the Z-Star spins more on wedge shots for me.

Off the putter, I would say the Chrome Soft is everso slightly softer. Z Star is still amongst the softest balls off the putter. The only one I can think of that feels softer is W/S Duo Urethane.
Your mileage may vary depending on your putter.
Z Star's spinskin is real technology, and definitely adds some spin onto the shortest of chips and pitches. Chrome Soft is a viable performer and a good short game ball as well. But Srixon leads that category for me.
Off the driver...I cant tell a discernable difference in launch, distance, anything. Too marginal.
Irons. Not much difference for me. Id say the short irons, say 8 iron on down, get a few more RPMs out of the Srixon. But for me, Callaway launches higher, so the differences are negligible there as well.
