The Srixon Q-Star Tour golf balls are now in a third-generation with the latest model still one of the most popular on the market. Is it worth adding to the bag?
In the current version, Srixon have come up with what is their softest ball of a tour-level performance to combine must-have distance with exceptional spin and control.
A three-piece golf ball available at a very reasonable price, the Q-Star Tour features SpinSkin and the SeRM technology and provides greenside control that golfers crave in their short game.
What Srixon say about the Q-Star golf balls:
“Now in its third generation, the new Srixon Q-Star Tour is our softest golf ball with tour-level performance.
“Get tour-calibre spin and distance from its three-piece construction and urethane cover, along with exceptionally softer feel than traditional tour balls.
“With the largest core in its class and FastLayer technology, Q-Star Tour golf balls are fast off the face and long off the tee.
“Its new SeRM urethane cover delivers ‘one-hop stop’ control for the ultimate combination of distance and spin.”
Srixon Q-Star Golf Balls Design & Features
If you feel like it’s the shots that are close to the green that are hurting you the most, then the Q-Star is a premium golf ball that helps you find the control that you are looking for.
The Q-Star features a Fastlayer core with more give for distance, and a compression of 72 – making it an ideal selection for golfers craving a softer ball than Srixon’s premium Z-Star ball.
SpinSkin and the SeRM technology also help maximise performance and improve your greenside game and add to the soft feel of this tour ball.
The ball features an Ionomer cover that Srixon have managed to make just 0.057″ in thickness to keep the Q-Star as soft as possible.
The outer shell exterior is designed to have the ability to ‘grasp’ the grooves of wedges or irons to put you in better control.
Available in Pure White or Tour Yellow colours options, the Q-Star Tours have a 338 dimple pattern for stability through the air in even the most extreme weather conditions.
Verdict: Are Srixon’s Q-Star Tour Golf Balls any good?
If you like to play a softer golf ball and enjoy the feel they offer around the greens, then the Q-Star Tour is in the ballpark of compression you require.
At 72 compression this isn’t an extremely soft ball like the Callaway Supersoft for example. It offers plenty of distance too, but with the addition of the benefits a softer ball offers around the greens.
The expected greenside impact of this ball on your game means that consistency and accuracy on chipping, pitching, and less-than-100-yard approach shots should improve.
