Unless you’ve been living under a rock—and we don’t mean a Top Flite 2000—the past two weeks, you’ve no doubt seen MyGolfSpy’s Golf Ball Buyer’s Guide, the most detailed and in-depth golf ball study every published.

While some of the results may have been eye-opening, it certainly came as no surprise to ball junkies how well the Srixon Z-STAR and Z-STAR XV performed. That, of course, is how it performed for us, but what we want to know is how it performs for you.

Testers Wanted

Srixon released its 6th generation Z-STAR and Z-STAR XV’s earlier this year, with the four-piece Z-STAR XV the slightly harder and lower spinning ball, while the three-piece Z-STAR is the slightly softer, higher spinning version.

We want four of you to try out one dozen of each ball, and report back to us – and your fellow GolfSpies – how each ball works for you, which one you prefer and whether one of Srixon’s Tour Balls will be your new gamer for 2019.

As per the OEMs guidelines, this review opportunity is open to any avid and detail-oriented golfers who hails from the USA.
