Srixon Z-Star Diamond

Srixon Z-Star Diamond: The changes

Srixon have worked closely with their tour staff, including Brooks Koepka, to deliver the Z-Star Diamond golf ball. It aims to blend the benefits of the current Z-Star offerings – noticeably the ball speed and distance from the Z-Star XV, and the spin and greenside control of the Z-Star.

It delivers long-game distance, greenside control, and increased spin on mid- and long-iron shots.

This model is designed for the higher swing speed, better player looking for the best performance available.

But those aren’t the only new changes. Srixon have also updated the existing Z-Star and Z-Star XV models.

Srixon Z-Star: The line-up

The Srixon Z-Star Diamond is one of three Z-Star models offered by Srixon. Each have unique characteristics so you can pick the right model for your game.

Srixon Z-Star Diamond: The technology

The FastLayer core starts soft in the centre and gradually becomes more firm near the edges. This gives high-speed players exceptional feel and plenty of ball speed for longer carry distances.

The urethane cover is thicker and features SpinSkin with SeRM. This is a durable coating with flexible molecular bonds. The advantage of this is it digs deep into wedge and iron grooves to maximise spin giving you more stopping power.

There is a new 338-speed dimple pattern which reduces drag, increasing lift and overall carry distance. It also makes the ball fly true even in windy conditions.

The three-piece Z-Star has a 0.1mm thicker urethan cover for even more spin and control around the greens.

Srixon Z-Star XV: The technology

The Srixon Z-Star XV has a reformulated inner core. It has been made more resilient which improves ball speed and distance without sacrificing feel.
