Unless you’ve been living under a rock—and by that we don’t mean a Top Flite 2000—the past two weeks, you have no doubt seen the results of the most detailed in-depth ball study ever conducted published by My Golf Spy last week.  Read it Here

So were you able to determine what ball might be best for you out of the results? Well MGS along with Srixon is going to give four My Golf Spy Forum members a chance to test two of the top performers of the study themselves and see what their results show.

Srixon Z-Star XV

Testers Wanted

Srixon has gained great ground in the balls wars over the last five years. Increasing its presence on professional tours across the world, and making its way into the bags of everyday golfers, by way of Srixon’s very popular ball demo days at green grass shops.

Offering two models the Z Star and Z Star XV you will get one dozen of each to play and practice with and report back to the forum with your findings.

Srixon Z-Star

The Z Star is in its 6th generation and provides maximum green-side spin for unmatched control and stopping power. It’s 3-piece construction gives players complete tour performance tee to green.

While the Z Star XV also in its 6th generation is a premium 4-piece ball that provides maximum distance and gives players complete tour performance tee to green.


How to Apply

As you know, MyGolfSpy takes its product testing very seriously. All of our reader reviews are published in our Community Forum (click here to read some Insert Review Link).

Honoring the OEM request this testing is available to any US Resident.

That's it, we'll be selecting our testers next week, so check back to see if you've been selected for the opportunity to conduit your own Srixon Ball Test. 



Jerry / Virginia

85mph SS / Handicap 12

TM Project (A) & Pro VI X

I have played Srixon Z Star Brands in the past.

I am a retired 53 year old male that has played Golf for more than 25 years and at 1 time held a 

5 Handicap.

Due to an on the job injury with the Government I was retired after multiple operations on my knee to repair the damage which is why my Swing speed dropped from 115 mph to 85 mph and my handicap ballooned from 5 to 20.

After working at it I have managed to drop it to a 12 and expect it to decrease even further.

My Strongest part of my game is without a Doubt my Short game as it was always the first thing the Doctor would allow me to do after surgery long before I could do anything else.

I'm not bragging but I am stating facts and that is this, From 100 yards in I will put my short game up against ANYBODY.

If I was able to get the type of distance I once did I would be a + handicap by now for sure.

I have plenty of time to practice and will give honest reviews on any Ball, Glove, Club ect that I test as I don't want to get taken for a ride no more than anyone else as o know money can be tight for sure.

Thanks and keep em in the short grass guys.

For the better part of the last couple of years up until last weekend when I read your golf ball test I played the Chromesoft and to a lesser extent the Chrosmesoft X  I started playing the Z Star yellow last week.

A couple of years ago I played the Z Star most of the time and dabbled with the XV a little for the better part of a year.

Previously played Z Star or XV? I've messed around with the XV. I like a firmer feel, but would love to try the Z Star, along with the yellow as well to see if I got different results in testing like you guys.
