Srixon Q-Star

Hot List Gold 2023

On the surface, Srixon’s two-piece Q-Star appears to be a relatively basic ball. Its playing attributes, however, suggest far more. With a low overall compression compared to previous generations, the Q-Star delivers better distance off the tee and enhanced feel when approaching the green, particularly for most average golfers with moderate and below-average swing speeds. The benefit of lower compression is reduced spin on tee shots, which can lead to slightly straighter, slightly longer drives.

A new core is designed to increase launch angle, but the real hero is the cover coating that creates an elastic surface that allows the grooves on wedges and short irons to grab the ball because of enhanced friction, leading to higher short-game spin.
