The softer of Srixon’s two new premium balls thanks to a less-firm cover and lower compression. Its extremely large core has a soft-inner area, which becomes firmer towards the outside. The latter reduces spin on long shots while the soft-inner area improves feel.
The Z-Star was able to withstand a number of pitch shots with very little damage to the cover, and proved to be one of the most hard-wearing of all the premium balls. It will definitely suit those who don't quite swing it fast enough for other tour balls.
