SRIXON Q-Star Tour

Srixon has been gushing about this ball since we met with them at the PGA Show in late January, the company couldn’t contain their excitement before launching the Q-Star Tour to the marketplace in late spring. Earlier this summer they sent these over for review. A urethane cover ball for the masses that offers tour like performance.

Is your driver swing over 90+ mph ? If it is, than check out Srixon’s Z-Star series golf balls (shown above – XV and standard Z-Star model), but for the majority of golfers the Q-Star Tour just might be what you’re the answer to what you’re looking for.

Srixon’s pure white urethane cover looks every bit the part, finally a ball that offers tour like performance for the recreational player with moderate swing speeds. Perhaps the best thing golfers get here is VALUE, at right around $30 you get a premium 3 piece soft urethane ball that offers low spin off the driver and shortgame spin (usually to get this combo it’ll cost $50 a dozen retail).

Unlike many of the new premium high value golf balls you can buy only online, the Q-Star Tour is available at your local pro shop and big box golf retailer.

Along with the 324 speed dimple soft urethane cover with SpinSkin coating, Srixon’s low 75 compression energetic gradient growth core allows for easier compression off the driver.

Features:

Performance: 

If you’re a player of the Titleist NXT Tour S or the Wilson Duo Spin then you may want to check out the Q-Star Tour. According to Srixon the Q-Star Tour has longer distance off the mid irons and tighter dispersion off the driver. We can confirm that the Q-Star Tour held it’s line better in the South Florida crosswinds than many of the premium tour models we’ve tested. For shortgame control the Q-Star Tour spins just slightly less than the competitors tour urethane ball that cost around $50 per dozen, but spins significantly more than ANY of the competitors ionomer cover models in the comparable $30 per dozen price range.

Summary:

If you’re a player who swings the driver under 90 mph and likes the performance of a tour ball, than the Q-Star Tour may be the only ball of its kind (other than the TaylorMade Project a) that offers such a thing. The Srixon is $5 less per dozen and does have a slightly firmer feel (75 compression) than TM’s 40 compression Project a. As a legitimate 3 piece urethane cover ball, Srixon’s Q-Star Tour provides a level of performance that exceeds just about everything at the $30 price point. A virtual slam dunk for the mid-high handicap player.
