Official Forum Member Review - Srixon Q STAR Tour 3-Piece Golf Balls


Recommended Posts

Ok, so I skimmed a little through all your reviews. First great job. Second I was mostly focussed on durability because on a golf trip in June I found a QStar and played it. It seemed great. I figured I give them a try. I bought some and the durability didn't seem the same as the one I found. After one shot I took with my 9 iron, I found pieces of the ball in the grooves. Up till then this ball had only gotten wet from the grass. So I was disappointed. Your reviews seemed to like the durability. No one had any similar problem like mine?

You still using the illegal square grooves?  LOL  

 

I haven't had this experience either.  Just marks from cart paths, which every ball is going to do.

I actually purchased this ball from my local pro shop to try at the beginning of the year.  They were having a sale trying to introduce their new products for this year, 6 balls for $10.  I normally play the Z-Star XV as I perform the best when my swing speed for my driver stays right around 108.  I thought that with it being a little colder out still I would give this a shot.  I wasn't disappointed!  The ball performed just as I wanted it with it being a little colder out at the beginning of the season.  I was seeing nice grab around the green.  Putting felt great and it felt good off the driver.  Once it started to warm up, I noticed that I was losing a bit of distance on it.  I ended up switching back to the Z-Star XV.  I do really feel like Srixon tapped into a market for slower swing speeds looking for that tour quality.  I

I had great experience with durability. Unlike a few times I have used prov's and scraped them with my wedges these held up great. Only scuffs came from something that warranted it (path, railroad equipment etc)

Thanks for the write ups, guys! I'm really interested in these, the price is just so good on them. I have an opportunity to get 6 dozen for $100 which is a great deal but not if they are balls I don't want to play. So, here's my question; do they really compare to a tour ball? I saw some guys saying they are designed for slower swing speeds? Is this the case or are they ok for someone in the 105-110mph range?

I think you just sold 6 dozen golf balls for Srixon, commission check should be in the mail!  :D  Thanks again for the reviews, without them, I think I would have settled for tried and true/less value.

My swing speed is right there and I've switched to gaming these. These are easier to compress for sure but I wouldn't say for "slow swing speeds" just not tour level. I for one don't lose distance and do not feel like the ball is too soft.

Ok I'm a huge fan of these now!  I bought a dozen a couple weeks back and have been putting one in play now and then.   I love the feel and distance off the tee and these puppies bite like they're after the mailman. There were two approach shots today where the ball even hopped backwards a couple or so feet.  I was thinking dayuuuuuummmm  my old arse spun em back!   That's pretty much a kin to me eating a cannon ball melon in one sitting.  :blink:

My swing speed is right in the same range and i've tried a sample sleeve from Newballcoach and i have to say they are a nice ball. I do see a little bit of distance loss vs my usual Project A's and the Vice Pro's that i'm currently testing, but durability wise they are excellent and the spin in the green is great too.

I swing around the same speed. You will be fine driving the ball. IMO when I tested these, the spin does not compare to a tour ball. I would call it a tourISH ball, where you will get some characteristics of a tour ball but you won't get the very high spin numbers of the best balls. Like I said in my review, it's a good ball, but not tour-level

When I found the first one, I did not have this problem either. It's possible, one of the new one I bought got scuffed and had some skin hanging off and a little wet conditions, it got wedged in the grooves or I'm just a powerfull beast and killed the cover off. But, I'm betting it's the former, not the latter.

Have to add another pro to this ball. Had a terrible ball striking round the other day and our group wanted to play 18 more. I'd already lost a few Chrome Softs so I decided to game the QST ''I've only lost 2 since I got them". Ball striking was still terrible but the QST was at least staying in play. Shot 90 the first round with the CS and shot 83 with the QST. As bad as my swing was that day, the ball definitely helped me score better.

 

"Oh and I didn't lose a QST that day either 😉"

Love the feel of this ball off every club in the bag.  Irons are crisp, driver is great .... but off the putter is where this ball shines for me.  It has given me the utmost confidence in my putting.  I have averaged putts per round the last 3 rounds I have played with it.  26, 28, 26 .... draining putts from everywhere.  And the one's I miss are not far off either.  A lot of lip outs.  It just seems to hold it's line really well ... no wobbling.  I haven't done anything different in my setup or stroke either ... that's what's strange.  I'm definitely not complaining.  This ball will definitely be in my bag for quite some time.

Thanks again to MGS for introducing me to it & allowing me to put in play for review.  Srixon made a great ball!
