Can't play anything else.. Best combo of feel of putter, shots around the green, wind play, and low spin off the driver

Fantastic ball. Ideal spin, huge distance, and great durability.

Agree with zerofade, don't want to play anything else now. The only thing I've found to be comparable is the Bridgestone B330-S.

Overall great ball:
  - really nice distance
  - pretty low spin - helps straighten those drives
  - a little bit firm, but acceptable
I am almost convinced to switch from Pro V1-x ball to these (I switch back and forth depending on sale price per doz)

Very durable ball.  I have been playing Callaway Tour i(s) for several years now, and I think the Srixon is going to be taking its place.  I was impressed with how well the cover held up to very agressive wedge shots, as the Callaway would get lots of cuts from the grooves.  Played 18 with the same ball yesterday and it looked as good after the final putt as it did with the first tee shot.  Felt great off the irons and putter.  I did notice a decrease in spin off the driver which is quite welcomed..

Great all around ball.

My #1 ball is Prov1X but always very disappointed with their durability.

XV is long and do well in windy day.

I still think Prov1x is a bit longer IMHO.

The XV is a firmer ball that will spin less. Many of the above posts mentioned less spin off the driver, but you will also lose green side spin. The normal z stars will spin more.

I love this ball, especially the tour yellow.  I haven't liked a ball this much since the TP Red.

My favorite is still the Cally ix, I really like the hex black too, but you can't beat the durability of the xv. It performs almost as good as the hex around the green, but doesn't shred a bit.  The hex lasts 1-3 holes before looking horrible.  The yellow xv will play until you lose it.  I have some that are going into their 5th round and still look good.   I'm a convert!

Nothing but praise for the XV, as already noted by others it is low spin off the driver but has enough spin and feel around the greens for most, AND is durable. My usual ball is the Callaway i(S) and this is just as good, maybe better, but feels so much softer off the putter and doesn't get shredded by my wedges.

By far the best performing ball for my swing. Play only the tour yellow version, and hate when I have to play anything else. There isn't another ball that even compares.

XV is 4 piece, normal zstar 3 piece. XV is also firmer and lower driver spin. Best ball on market imo. I only started using them cause of price, but use them exclusively now.

I havent played this ball yet, but am very curious as to if its the right one or me. I dont have a Srixon ball fitting in my area (Lakleland, FL), so like the most of us its a trial and error type of thing. The last ball I played and really enjoy was the Q Star... At the time I was hitting my 9 irons 150 yards, with a club head speed of 89.4 and ball speed of 104. These past several months Ive noticed that my swing has gotten faster and a lot more balanced. Havent been able to see it on a simulator yet though... Do you think I should try out/switch to the Z star? All suggestions highly welcomed...

The 2011 XV is right there with my all time favorite, TM TP Red LDP. Both are great wind balls and take some spin off my driver, but still spin the perfect amount on all wedge shots.

Great ball.  Played 72 holes with one with zero wedge groove scuffs and barely a mark from where it hit a cart path.  Put a Pro V1x in play and it had wedge "hairs" after just a few holes.  Love the feel off the putter as well

This ball has everything.  Durability, Feel, Spin, Length, and Straightness.  At first when I got this ball I was a bit skeptical, however, I have fallen in love with it.  The price is probably the best part about this ball.  29.99 beats a ProV1 and i believe they have way more durability that the Pro V1's (unless you destroy a cart path).

My favorite, my go to. I play on a course with elevated greens, with tucked pins. This ball allows me to get to the tucked pins. No huge TV back spin, but it performs!!!!!

JShaw - agree with you about the yellow XV. A couple of the players on the senior Tour, including Peter Jacobson, can't say enough about the XV, which has the best shade of yellow on the market, and a premium ball, as well. For whatever reason, you'll never see a yellow B330 or Pro V.

Srixon zstar xv is the best ball I've ever played. Great off the driver. Nice boring trajectory that doesn't balloon. Very nice and crisp off the irons. Enough spin to hold long irons into most greens. I can spin it as much or as little as I want off the wedges. I actually prefer the firmer feel off the putter.

I won a couple dozen pro v1x in a tourney a few weeks ago. I tried one sleeve and gave the rest away. Still spin way too much for my game. Wedges zipped right back at me off the greens.

The srixon tour yellow color can't be beat. I won't use anything else as long as this ball is around.
