Srixon Announces Newly Redesigned Q-STAR Golf Ball for Better Balanced Performance
HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. — July 17, 2017 — SRIXON® announces launch of the newly redesigned Q-STAR® golf ball for golfers who demand balanced performance from a more durable, two-piece ball offering. The Srixon Q-STAR is available in Pure White™ and Tour Yellow™ and officially launches in North America on August 18, 2017.
Srixon is a tour-proven golf manufacturer with premium golf balls and club offerings popular with golfers around the world. The Q-STAR golf ball utilizes the same premium technologies found inSrixon’s higher-priced tour balls but offers them in a 2-piece construction that is more durable and affordable.
The new Q-STAR features a lower-compression Energetic Gradient GrowthTM Core, a new third generation Spin Skin™ coating, and a new, more efficient 338 Aerodynamic Speed Dimple™Pattern. These three technologies combine to deliver balanced performance: longer, more accurate driving distance, better iron control, and improved greenside spin.
“The Q-STAR’s built-in tour technologies should help golfers see great performance in every aspect of their golf game,” said Michael Ross, Senior Product Manager at Srixon. “This is the golf ball for players who seek maximum playability from a more durable, 2-piece design.”
The key technologies inside the new Q-STAR include:
· Lower-Compression Energetic Gradient Growth Core. Q-STAR’s core technology uses variable stiffness to deliver better feel and exceptional distance on every shot.
· Third Generation Spin Skin Coating. This latest iteration of Srixon’s proven ball coating is more elastic with less bonding points so it produces more consistent spin from any lie — especially the rough.
· Aerodynamic 338 Speed Dimple Pattern. Along with more control in the wind, this dimple pattern reduces drag to maximize distance.
The Srixon Q-STAR golf ball officially launches in North America on August 18, 2017, at a MAP of $24.99 per dozen.
