Srixon AD333 Golf Ball Review
Srixon's AD333 has been the best selling two-piece ball for more than a decade
The Srixon AD333 golf ball is the most popular from the leading brand and a really crowd pleaser amongst golfers of all abilities.
The AD333, with its familiar light blue branding and arrows, is probably best described as the mass-market ball from Srixon and it caters for a wide handicap range of golfers.
The latest version of the Srixon balls features design tweaks aimed at improving performance and providing the perfect blend of distance and spin from a lower-compression ball.
What Srixon say about the AD333 ball:
“The AD333 is a premium, lower-compression golf ball that delivers superior, balanced performance for golfers who demand exceptional distance, feel and greenside control.
“Starts soft in the centre and gradually becomes firm around its outer edge, FastLayer delivers exceptional feel and ball speed for maximum distance.
“A coating with flexible molecular bonds digs deep into wedge and iron grooves, maximizing spin for more control and more stopping power.
“Less drag and more lift boosts overall distance and accuracy, even in the toughest wind conditions.”

Srixon AD333 Golf Ball Design
The Srixon AD333 needs very little introduction as it has been a stalwart of the golf ball market for quite some years now.
It has been the top selling two-piece golf ball for more than a decade and it provides impressive performance levels at a very reasonable price range that makes it an attractive proposition to the vast majority of golfers.
One of the most recent tweaks was Srixon’s decision to make the AD333 text on the ball become blue wording and feature arrows, but there have been technological advances to extract more from the ball too.
Srixon decide to increase the number of dimples of the latest version by 14 with the AD333 now featuring a 338 dimple design for improved aerodynamics, reduced drag and more distance.
The compression now sits at 77, which is not as soft as the Srixon Soft Feel ball, thanks to what Srixon describe as the FastLayer delivering exceptional feel and ball speed for maximum distance. That Fastlayer involves a core that starts soft in the centre and gradually becomes firm around its outer edge.
It has become more reactive around the green with spin levels thanks to the Ionomer Spin Skin with SeRM outer layer which features a coating with flexible molecular bonds to dig deep into wedge and iron grooves and maximum spin and control with approach shots.
The AD333 is available in white and yellow options. Srixon have also released Srixon AD333 Tour balls, a three-piece construction version.
