What Srixon says about the Z-Star balls:
“From its molecules to its dimples, we’ve pushed every feature of the Z-Star to its limit. We stopped at nothing to achieve ultimate performance because we know you’ll do the same on every tee shot, chip, and putt.
“Maximize your greenside spin and enjoy ample distance performance, all with an exceptionally soft feel.
“Choose Z-Star if finesse around the greens and pinpoint approach shots are your keys to record low scores.
“A re-engineered cover is more elastic for more bite at impact and even more spin and stopping power when hitting into greens.”
