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

Never played the Z or XV but always have been tempted to pick some up and try them out (especially for the quality/price). I have played the Soft Feel (absolutely hated it) and the standard Q-Star (surprisingly decent).

I have played the Z Star for a few rounds before, and liked them. After reading the golf ball testing article, I’d be really interested in switching to these balls.

I just bought a couple of Srizon Z Star sleeves to test after your results.  Only played one round with them so far.  I would be happy to share any/all thoughts in the test.  Great work as always!

Don, California

7.4- 115 MPH driver

Talyormade TP5X/Z star yellow

I have played the q-star and Z starXV as my main two balls for all of last year.  I get great performance out of both and love how straight they are compared to other models I try.  I use arccos and get pretty accurate data on my game and real yardages for each club.
