Srixon has announced the release of their next generation Z-Star series of golf balls available February 1st.

The new ball is the sixth generation of the Z-Star series and it features several new pieces of technology.

Beginning with the new FastLayer Core. It starts soft in the center and gradually becomes firmer around the edges. The core design is meant to produce greater ball speed, while still maintaining feel of the ball at impact.

The new balls are also built with a new cover Srixon is calling Spin Skin technology with Slide-Ring Material (SeRM). No other ball manufacturer has implemented this type of technology into their golf balls.

Spin Skin with SeRM is a urethane compound that coats the cover of every Z-Star. It’s purpose is to be able to take unprecedented levels of shearing force without breaking its molecular bonds. In english, that means the ball is able to really dig deep into your wedges and iron grooves, dramatically increasing friction and maximizing spin for more control and stopping power on every shot.

At the same time, the Z-Star is still a four-piece ball with a dimple pattern that offers less drag and more lift to continuing helping with distance off the tee and with your approach shots.
