Srixon Z Star Premium Golf Balls The Srixon Z Star ball is not my favorite premium ball based simply on performance, but it does stand out in one particular area. That is economy. This ball is a lot cheaper than my number 1 favorites -- Titleist's Pro V and Pro V1x -- but the performance is not that much different.

One cool thing about the ball is you aren't going to find a thinner cover. The urethane cover is 0.5 mm, or 0.02 inches. The core gets progressively firmer as you move towards the outside. This is designed to improve spin and launch conditions for every club from your driver to your pitching wedge.

Finally, here is something I bet you've never heard of: the ball has a coating on the cover. (Don't ask me what it is.) The idea is to increase friction on short shots around the green. I'm guessing they made sure this passed USGA rules.

I like this ball for those of you with big games but not big bank accounts. This ball is for slower swingers, those with swing speeds less than 105 mph. If your swing speed is more than 105 mph, check out the Srixon Z Star X ball -- it's firmer. And for those of you needing to be calmed by soft amber colors, check out this Srixon Z Star X Yellow golf ball.
