    Tad softer it sounds like. The PERFECT ball.




    Compression is still the same though I believe?



    My thoughts echo yours. If there was a Z-Star "X" between the standard and XV, game over for me. I'm really excited to try the new Z-Star, my club has tiny greens and shots around them require loads of spin.




    Compression has actually been tweaked up a little on the ZStar, and down a touch on the VX to bring them a little closer together. Even Srixon guys (employees) have told me there was a bit too much of a feel gap between the two models. Trying to close that up a bit.

    If the XV's just a touch softer and still has the same other characteristics then it'll be a very, very hard ball to beat in 2019. I don't think anyone ever doubted the performance of the previous XV. The only real con was some people thought it felt like a rock--myself included. Excited to try the 2019 version!

    Excellent news that ref compression.



    I felt (sic) the gap between non-X and X was often "quite vast" across most Brands. Primarily in terms of feel / sound, but for sure also in terms of spin from 50 yards in. And that a firmer non-X or softer feeling X would be a ball i would love. If i could find it.....



    I was and still am banking on the new TP5 to fill my void. But i have no brand loyalty (Check my bag out !) and owe it to myself to try both new Srixons by the sound if it.







    Is it just me or do this years offerings across 'all' major Brands sound really exciting / a quite big leap forward / promise much more than in previous 'changes'. It almost feels, sounds and is like we are being promised Revolution not Evolution. Unless i'm just being sucked into some hype as intended.....

    Played the '19 XV version vs '17 XV yesterday on the range with wedges and 9 holes. Didn't notice any difference in length off the tee, but hit my short irons and wedges much tighter to pins. I'm a big fan of the softer feel of Tour B XS and the '19 XV feels equivalent to me. Putting was short and less clicky on everything so the cover must be softer. Pitching and chipping tended to be great but did notice it's easier to scuff when you nip one off a bare, tight lie. Good improvements on an already great ball that shouldn't be underrated.

    Yeah thought I saw them there last weekend, selling for $15 I think? Memory’s a bit fuzzy as I wasn’t there looking for balls.

    Bought all of them at PGA Superstore in MN. Hit them side by side at home against the 5th generation and there is no doubt that the new model definitely feels / sounds better than the last model. Still not Chrome soft feel, but a decent improvement. We'll see how it performs in a few weeks in Scottsdale.

    100% truth. It’s a bit like Bed, bath, and beyond. Does ANYONE actually shop there without a 20% off coupon??



    The only reason I even discovered the XV and love it is the $9.95 6 ball trial packs.



    I’ve got 20 dozen in the closet at $20 a dozen. I would NEVER Pay $40 a dozen....for any ball...ever.
