HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. — January 8, 2020 — SRIXON®, a global leader in golf ball technology and innovation, announces the launch of the third generation Q-STAR TOUR golf ball. The all-new Srixon Q-STAR TOUR is available in Pure White™ and Tour Yellow™ and officially launches in North America on January 17, 2020. “The new Q-STAR TOUR is a tour-caliber golf ball, delivering a softer feel at impact,” said Jeff Brunski, Vice President of Research and Development. “We’ve enhanced this generation with the new FastLayer Core to drive more ball speed and distance, while the SeRM urethane cover offers maximum spin and stopping power.” The foundation of the third generation Q-STAR TOUR is the FastLayer Core. With its gradual transition from soft inner core to firm outer edge, FastLayer behaves like a core with thousands of layers, delivering distance and soft feel without compromise. The new Q-STAR TOUR features our softest FastLayer Core, which is the largest core in its class. That means distance and short game spin that is seen on tour, but a softer feel that isn’t found on tour. Additionally, the new Q-STAR TOUR golf balls feature Srixon’s proprietary Spin Skin technology with Slide-Ring Material (SeRM), a urethane compound that coats the cover of every Q-STAR TOUR golf ball. The SeRM urethane cover digs deep into wedge and iron grooves, dramatically increasing friction at impact. That extra friction means more spin and more control on every approach shot into the green. Finally, Q-STAR TOUR features a new side stamping design to help aid in alignment for improved aim, accuracy, and confidence. Key Technologies: New FastLayer Core: The new FastLayer Core offers distance and soft feel without compromise due to a gradual transition from soft inner core to firm outer edge. New Spin Skin with SeRM: SeRM, a new urethane coating with flexible molecular bonds, digs deep into wedge and iron grooves for increased friction and maximum spin. New Alignment Aid: New side stamping aids in alignment when standing over those critical putts. 338 Speed Dimple Pattern: Providing a penetrating ball flight in any conditions, the 338 Speed Dimple Pattern increases lift and reduces drag to maximize distance. The Srixon Q-STAR TOUR golf balls officially launch in North America on January 17, 2020, at a MAP of $32.99 per dozen.
12 Testers Wanted! It's not often we have Forum Testing opportunities during the winter time.But then again, It's not often we have an OEM present us with an opportunity for our members to participate in "White Box Ball Testing", and that's what we have here. Many of you as devoted golf geeks probably are well aware of that companies from time to time send out a yet to be released ball with no information about it, and ask you to play it, and report back what you think about it.These are called White Box Testings, as the balls come in non-descript white sleeves. There is no marketing info on the ball of what it's features are. That's what Bridgestone will want you to provide back to them after playing the ball for several weeks. Here's what you'll get and what you need to do. Each tester will receive two sleeves of balls, you will be asked to put these balls in play at for at least 3 to 4 rounds between early January and early February. So due to the need to get ample testing in during that time, we are looking for testers in geographical locations that will allow you to fulfill the amount of testing asked.We won't limit to certain states, but just know if you are already buried under a foot of snow, we'll probably look somewhere else How to enter: Follow the instructions below, and PLEASE DO NOT quote this post when doing so. Also. This testing will not keep testers from participating in other testings in 2020 as it is a special edition testing. Provide the following information: First Name/City State Ball Used as your Gamer Driver Swing Speed That's it, we'll pick the testers sometime next week, so check back to see if you've been selected.
I own the Search N Rescue ball retriever. Its a great retriever albeit expensive. The lever popped off the head of the retriever and I cannot find it. Because it is pressure fit, it did not break off rather just popped off. I tried to find a replacement part and cannot find who to contact or if I can even get a part. I would hate to replace the entire retriever because of one small part. Any ideas or help out there? Otherwise, beware of this retriever.
Big news for TaylorMade and their Project [a] launch along with their push to be a serious player in the golf ball market: Based on last night's equipment counts, for the first time EVER, Titleist is not the #1 ball in play by amateurs. Amateurs is the reason why I put that '*' up there in the headline. As you might expect, Titleist remains the #1 ball (and likely by plenty) in use by the actual professionals on the course, but being able to claim #1 at anything, especially when what you're trying to push is a better ball for amateur players is actually something...maybe not a huge something, but something. You think we'll see any commercials this weekend? Here are the quick stats: Project (a), played by 53% (83 of 156) of the amateur field. Overall, nearly 60% (93/156) of the amateur field played a TaylorMade ball By comparison, last year TaylorMade's golf balls were played by only 20 amateurs. Also...TaylorMade is giving away 10,000 sleeves of the new Project [a] ball. Click here if YOU WANT.
