The new 12th edition of the Srixon Soft Feel ball was released in 2020 with the upgraded version providing increased distance and forgiveness.
Modifications have been made by Srixon to create a two-piece ball that improves on previous models and provides better accuracy from tee to green.
Affordability of the Srixon Soft Feel adds to its appeal for a range of golfers, while the forgiveness makes this model makes it one of the most attractive low-compression balls.
What Srixon says about the Soft Feel ball:
“Whether off the tee or around the greens, the new Soft Feel lives up to its namesake. With it, you’ll experience a solid yet comfortable impact on every swing, giving you more confidence as you address each shot.
“With a soft centre that gradually transitions to a firm outer edge, the FastLayer Core gives Soft Feel incredible softness and great distance off the tee.
“To get more distance overall and better performance in the wind, Speed Dimples reduce drag at launch and increase lift during descent.
“Soft, thin cover provides more greenside spin and softer feel on all pitches, chips and putts.”
Srixon Soft Feel Balls Design
The presence of a FastLayer Core gives the Srixon Soft Feel a featherweight touch that makes the ball smooth upon connection.
Additional distance is provided from the Soft Feel when it core snaps back into shape quickly after leaving the clubface, preventing sidespin and providing forgiveness.
The two-layer ball may be soft on the inside but the outer lay provides more of a firmness to provide more bounce and less spin, helping to increase shot length.
A 338 Speed Dimple pattern makes the Soft Feel more aerodynamic than its predecessors, providing less drag and more distance through the air with a more penetrating flight than in previous models.
Despite being designed for more distance with a harder than usual cover, the new Soft Feel actually has a thinner outer-layer (0.063-inch) than similar models from other competitors brands.
The Soft Feel balls are available in white, yellow and green colours.
Srixon Soft Feel Balls Verdict
The Soft Feel is an affordable option for players of all abilities seeking extra distance from the tee and in their longer game.
