Srixon Q-Star

Now in its sixth generation, this two-piece ionomer-cover ball has a lower overall compression compared to previous versions. That provides better distance off the tee and enhanced feel when approaching the green, particularly for moderate to slow swing speeds. How does it do that? The lower compression reduces spin off the driver, and the revamped core increases launch angle. The dimple pattern is designed for a more penetrating flight off the longer clubs, too. A coating on the cover creates a more elastic surface allowing the grooves to better grab the ball for enhanced friction. Golfers with some short-game skill looking for a ball costing about half of premium balls might take a look.

Performance: 5/5
