Got my brand spanking new 2019 Srixon Z Star balls with SeRM!!  Going to give em a ride tomorrow.  The cover definitely feels different and it looks a little brighter.

SeRM?   

According to Srixon: A coating with flexible molecular bonds digs deep into wedge and iron grooves, maximizing spin for more control and more stopping power.

 

SeRM according to Google:  Selective estrogen receptor modulators are a class of drugs that act on the estrogen receptor

 

Which one came first?   Estrogen receptor modulators or golf ball coating?   And if the balls are coated with estrogen what issues will it cause (I'm not going there...I'm married!);-)

Maybe the SeRM are intended for women only? Seriously though, every Srixon ball that I've found has felt great when I've hit it, and seemed to carry a good distance. I honestly don't know why I've never bought any! Maybe I'm stuck in a rut.

You owe it to try the Q Star tour one time. Dick's usually has sample packs and you can get them online too. Moderate feel, 30 per dozen, comes in yellow and they spin on the green! They usually run sales on them too.

I like the Q Star Tour. It would be my second choice after Z Star

Umm, all covalent bonds are "flexible". :-P

Ya but it's all about the advertising.   Who marketed it first.

After using the Z Stars today, I really like them! Softer feel than last year but a ton of distance. The short game spin isn’t as good as a prov1 but it’s still good. Didn’t notice any scratches after the trees I hit today. 😉

Maybe they improved their design. I tried their high end golf balls about 4 years ago and found a significant difference in distance from the ProV1, MTB, and the Penta. It was like 10 yards or so.

My father played Srixon (Z star xv) a long time .. Now switched to balls called "Softfli", Maxfli I guess. I can´t understand but he feels better with them

He must prefer a much softer and cheaper ball. I do as well. But, there's no green side spin with the softfli's.

Last year when Srixon discounted the ZStars and QStar Tour, I bought some  of each to see which I liked best.  I liked the regular ZStar.  The XV was maybe a touch longer off the tee but the feel and the action on the green that I got from the Zstar really convinced me.  I hope they mark them down again this year.  I will buy a truck load.

Thinking of gaming either the Z-star or the Q-star... Anyone know their swing speed ranges for optimal ball performance?

I consider myself a slow swing and really enjoy the Q Star. The Z star is firmer and a quicker swing speed would good.

If you have a slower swing speed (under 100 mph) I would highly recommend the Q-Star Tour.

I have a driver swing speed of ~105 mph. Will Q-Star still work?

    • Here are my top five favorite and least favorite players currently on the PGA Tour. Favorites------------Jason Day, Phil Mickelson, Rory McIlroy, Rickie Fowler and Francesco Molinari Least Favorites----Dustin Johnson, Bill Haas, Billy Horshel, Rory Sabbatini and Hunter Mahan                                                                                                                                           I don't really dislike the last five as much as I just catch myself pulling against them when they are in contention. (Also, I realize Haas and Mahan are not in the top 125 right now). Who are your favorites and least favorites?
    • Well, it's not an absolute, of course.  It's just a tendency to fare well in the long game and crap out in the short game.  (BTW, the 7-iron over the green was pretty useful information for me.  It is the result of my fiddling with the swing.  Looks like I am getting about 20-30 yards extra off my irons with this hips-first swing.) BTW, on the 7 you quoted, I hit a 2nd shot off the tee since the right shoreline is tree-lined and I did not think I could get a decent drop.  I should have put that part in there.  Naturally that faded some and ended under a tree anyway. pfft Klineka, we are so far off the topic now that I have nearly forgot the point. Actually, this thread has been off point for a long time anyway.
    • made some changes and have a few DTL videos to share. noticed inconsistent ball position was causing some previously unexplained mishits. using a couple of alignment rods to fix this. widened stance and feeling more centered foot pressure. just feels more solid. keeping chin higher at address and throughout backswing. much easier to get a full turn and had the unintended consequence (along with wider stance) of reducing lateral head movement when i load up (à la henrik stenson). using a neutral grip now. most frequent miss has turned into a pull. neutral grip helps prevent pull hooks. first video is a drill (7-iron) i'm using to improve tempo and separation. it's the drill i love to hate: challenging and significantly reduces power but very helpful. this particular swing is acceptable but i want to try to get more separation. 1) i need better core strength and to do more pelvic exercises. and 2) i need to trust the top half will follow the bottom half. feedback or questions? second video is about 80% tempo with a p-wedge. there's a clear difference between this and the drill swing. i hit this ball dead straight but it could've easily been a 10-yard pull if my timing was slightly off. i want to fix this so i don't rely on timing and i think that starts with a more consistent path on the backswing (like in the drill) and getting better separation so i don't jump at the ball from the top before sliding/turning with the lower half. feedback or questions? third video is an example of how much more drastic this swing flaw looks with longer irons. here i'm hitting a 16.5* driving iron. saved the shot with good timing and roasted a baby pull fade but it could have turned out badly. i want this club to be my fairway finder. have made solid progress in the last few weeks but still have a bit of work to do before i'm comfortable bagging it. feedback or questions?  
    • I wear jeans to work, and thus find myself on the driving range wearing jeans quite frequently.   No real positive or negative to swinging in jeans.  a bit hot in the summer.   kinda nice in the fall.   
    • I second what @billchao says. You want someone to take a look at your swing. But if you're going to look on YouTube, just for general knowledge on the swing, I would check out Eric Cogorno. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UClOp9ASmFYATO1zFfpB7QlA Or Athletic Motion Golf https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCvtpTGbGiMgI8gWlsMUmdLA
