What are the surprises in the 3rd generation Q-STAR TOUR golf ball?

By: January 9, 2020

In the past, I had the chance to write about Srixon Q-STAR golf balls. But somehow Srixon Q-STAR TOUR golf balls escaped my attention.

This is what I would like to complete with the introduction of the 3rd generation Srixon Q-STAR TOUR golf balls.

Probably the biggest innovation in the 3rd generation Srixon Q-STAR TOUR golf ball is the FastLayer Core.

The new Q-STAR TOUR features our softest FastLayer Core, which is the largest core in its class. That means distance and short game spin that is seen on tour, but a softer feel that isn’t found on tour.

With its gradual transition from the soft inner core to the firm outer edge, FastLayer behaves like a core with thousands of layers, delivering distance and soft feel without compromise.

The new Q-STAR TOUR golf balls feature Srixon’s proprietary Spin Skin technology with Slide-Ring Material (SeRM), a urethane compound that coats the cover of every Q-STAR TOUR golf ball.

The SeRM urethane cover digs deep into wedge and iron grooves, dramatically increasing friction at impact. That extra friction means more spin and more control on every approach shot into the green.

Just like in the 5th generation Srixon Q-STAR golf balls here we can also find the 338 Speed Dimple Pattern.

The Srixon Q-STAR TOUR golf balls officially launch in North America on January 17, 2020, at a MAP of $32.99 per dozen.
