Srixon zstar vs Titlest prov

Recommended Posts

I interchange Srixon Zstar and ProV1x - the performance difference is minimal. But the deals that can be found for Zstar is what makes it so compelling.

Not for me - chromes feel like a marshmallow, are a few yards shorter off the driver and far more importantly don’t spin as much around the green. The Taylor Made TP 5x works just fine though. I picked up a few dozen on close out and may have my ball for next season there.

If you are looking for a bargain Snell MTB or some iteration of Vice work great.

The Srixon is a good enough ball bridge I’m paying 40 it’s Titleist or TMag.

... I could have written the same thing! I love the TP5x and it is the only ball that is a little longer than others off long irons and woods. I am taking 6 dozen TP5x to Phoenix Monday along with a dozen Snell Black. I should be getting 2 dozen of the new dimple Cut Blues tomorrow and look forward to playing them as well.

That’s odd to me . I like em, and I think they spin fine. Weird how we view them differently, but with that, I haven’t spent any quality time with the tp5x yet. So you guys are saying that they’re longer and spin better too?

played with all the rest a bunch,  but for whatever reason, the tp5 eludes me... I’ll have to make an effort to get some.

... Sluggo I am nit picking. For fun and review purposes, I have played all the balls I could this year including Chrome Soft, Chrome Soft X, Snell Black, Cut Blue, Kirkland 3 and 4 piece,  Srixon Z Star and TP5x . I could probably play the Chrome Soft and score very close to what I shoot with the TP5x and would add I find it a good ball in the wind. Mostly, I don't like the feel which is just too soft for my tastes. Obviously soft is one of the CS main selling points. I don't find the CS shorter than most other premium balls and spin around the green is certainly adequate although a hair less than the others. If I am choosing balls based on playing them this year in the dry Phoenix desert and wet Mid West, I would rank them below:

1. TP5x

then 


2. Kirkland 4 piece
3. Snell Black/Z Star/Chrome Soft X
4. Chrome Soft/Cut Blue (I will be testing the new Cut Blue in the next several weeks)
 
The only ball I will not play is the Kirkland 3 piece that just spins excessively for me

I found the Chrome Soft X to be MUCH harder than TP5X. I bought them based on a statement from a buddy at Callaway, and I hated them from the first time I hit them out of the box.SO hard.

Why the regular z star over the xv? Isn't xv closer to x in performance?

... I have not found X golf performance to be universal. The Srixon XV is a little shorter for me than the Z, which has been one of my favorite balls because I don't think I compress the XV as well as the Z. Yet I prefer the ProV1X and CS X. And the TP5x is a little longer than any ball I have played.

The reason I ask is because I keep going back and forth between the two. Anxious to see what how they changed them for 2019. Should be hearing those details any week now

I’m saying they are longer with the driver (3 or 4 yards) and spin better around the green for me. That combo is entirely possible because you activate different layers of the ball with those swings.

But that’s me and my swing, obviously the chrome soft is a perfectly good ball. I know people who swear by it. All premium balls are good, the question is which do you prefer for your game?

How could I answer the OP? I know what I would prefer - the Pro VIx for sure. Golf is my stress release, the ball is used on every shot, I don’t loose many, it’s the one piece of equipment that I’m willing to pay a premium for. I bought 4 dozen Pro VIxs last March and still have two dozen.

... You have a faster swing speed than  do so it makes sense you could be in-between. I have not played the last few XV generations but the earlier versions were the hardest golf balls I have played and I just felt like I wasn't compressing them. I am sure you know the Srixon Tour Staff is pretty much divided by higher swing speeds with JB Holmes and Matsuyama playing the XV, while McDowel and Knox play the Z.

So I just bought some tp5x on eBay, so I’ll roll with them for a while and see what happens. Kind of a fun little chat here eh?

To me, the TP5x is softer feeling than the XV. The XV almost feels like a CSX to me. TP5x and ProV1x feel almost identical across every club for me, but the V1x just launches so high, I love it. Might try to scoop up more of the 2018 version on the cheap when the new one hits shelves, paying $48 a dozen is lame, but I'll gladly pay $39.99. I loved the stopping power I got with the Tour B XS, and there's the "tiger plays it" factor (yes I'm that shallow) but the ball flight is ugly to me, more of a mid piercing one.

Z Star is a quality ball that for me seems to be a bit longer and is more durable . I played it for a month or two but went back to ProV as I like the feel of it around the greens much better.

Since then I found me an AVX and that is my ball of choice.  

Personal preference that fits your game and budget.

Well I played my first serious round with the tp5x today and I am impressed. Long with good spin. Not too much tho, just good. Serious penetrating flight, great feel. It helps that I played a good round too. Did the ball cause that, or was the ball just the lucky recipient of a good swing today? maybe a little of both. A few shots I thought that were gunna get away from me stayed on line and didn’t hook out, which says to me lower spin, yet they were staying put on the greens pretty well. Less spin than the chrome for sure, but maybe in a good way. One of my buds made multiple comments on my piercing ball flight and good distance. I think it passed the test.
