After the recent ball study, I did go out and purchase a sleeve of the XV and just played a round with them this past weekend.  I really enjoyed them and want to play them more as well as the Z star.

Testers Chosen! @Reesedw @pulledabill @ChasingScratch @golfertrb Join me in congratulating these four members and looking forward to their evaluation of the Srixon

Testers Chosen! Hang around MyGolfSpy long enough and you'll get two messages: 1) some golf equipment is objectively better than others, and 2) knowing what equipment is best for your game is ess

Golf Spys, ball testing is a really awesome experience not to be overlooked! No it's not a new set of clubs or a driver.. but that's not what it's about. We're just wrapping up the Bridgestone e12 rev

Jacob- Louisiana

8.8- ~100mph

Titleist ProV1X

I have been toying back and forth with swapping from my trusty ProV1X to the Srixon Z-Star. I loved the original yellow Z-Stars. Firm, long, and spun like crazy with short clubs.  Played them exclusively until they were re-designed to be softer. Didn't like the feel as much so went back to the V1X which I've stayed with ever since. Bought a sleeve of Z-Stars and XV's to check on the SkyTrak and have been pretty happy with the results.

Juan Diego, New Mexico (will be moving to Illinois soon). And yes, New Mexico is a state in the USA for those who don’t know...

12 hdc, 95-100 mph club head speed

Srixon Q-star

I haven’t played these balls but as my game is improving I want to transition to one of these premium balls. My experience with the Q-star has been phenomenal, it does roll out a bit more on chips than a ProV1, but it has enough stopping power for me on full shots. It is quite impressive considering it’s a two-piece ball. That is why I’m eager to test the higher range models of Srixon.
