Srixon upgrades Q-Star golf balls for 2017

Published

on

Along with Srixon’s premium Z-Star and Z-Star XV golf balls and the company’s new Q-Star Tour, which offers premium constructions at only $30, Srixon is also releasing an updated version of its Q-Star golf ball. Made for golfers of all swing speeds, and for those who demand balanced performance, the Q-Star golf balls have a two-piece, low-compression design and will sell for $24.99 per dozen.

Like Srixon’s higher-end golf balls, the Q-Star golf balls use the companies Energetic Gradient Growth (E.G.G.) core, which means the core of the golf ball is softer in the center for added long-game distance, and it gets progressively firmer toward the edges for higher spin around the green.

“The Q-Star’s built-in tour technologies should help golfers see great performance in every aspect of their golf game,” said Michael Ross, Senior Product Manager at Srixon. “This is the golf ball for players who seek maximum playability from a more durable, two-piece design.”

The new Q-Star golf balls also have Srixon’s “Spin-Skin” coating, now made with more elastic for more grab around the greens. The outer cover, like Srixon’s higher-end golf balls, has 338 dimples that improve aerodynamics for better control in the wind.

Srixon’s 2017 Q-Star golf balls will be available in stores on August 18.

    Q Star Tour is the same as the Pro V but cheaper, so that makes it way better

    I want to like Srixon, keep trying the Q-Star but it is not very durable for me. I even went to the Q-Star Tour and not much better….my Duo’s and NXT’s hold up way better IMO.

SIM Max vs SIM2 Max – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been comparing and contrasting the original SIM Max with the latest SIM2 Max driver. WRXer “Spaceman1976” is torn between the two and reaches out to fellow members saying

“If anyone can offer their experiences with both drivers, I would greatly appreciate your feedback. I do see more SIM2 drivers for sale on the board than SIM drivers.”

And WRXers have been sharing their thoughts in our forum.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • Yoshimonster: “Very minor difference between them. Go with Max.”
  • philleeeep: “I thought there was a big difference in sound. Hard to explain, but I personally preferred the SIM Max.”
  • tleader: “Love my SIM Max. Very little (if any) difference to “upgrade” to the SIM2 Max if fitted correctly.”
  • Kale_m: “Sim2 sounds and feels softer. Still super hot but just a different sound and feel. I personally like it. Sim2 is more neutral flight to me. I am playing it at a lower loft and in the upright setting. Dead straight bombs. Sim was much more fade biased, even when in the upright setting.”
