    Yup, I got them. They look nice. 3*F here with winds at about 25mph....I'd bet if I hit one I'd think they felt like rocks.
    Haiku as a sig?
    They may be overrated
    But I'm rocking one!

    My buddy is on staff with srixon and he gave me a couple sleeves of the new z-star XV's. I play the current version and I have to say the new version is better. I noticed it to be a little better into the wind, and dare I say maybe even more durable

    I still play the original Tour Yellow without spin skin. Still the best all around ball IMO. Love the yellow sheen. Are the 2015 balls the same yellow color or did you get white?

    More durable? How is that possible. The yellow Z-Star XV's I have played are impervious to almost any known golf course hazards. I have even bounced a few off of the cart paths with barely a mark on them.

    The feel to me on both the z and xv is better,it def compares to the provs, as for durability the xv is better but the z is still good, i was spinning the z better than the prov1

    Loved the non spin skin xv.. Switched when the spin skin came out cos I felt like spin increased slightly off driver and irons although it did help around the greens. Any comparison to the non spin skin version? I'd switch back if it performed similarly off the driver and irons

    Srixon solicited for volunteer testers via social media a few weeks ago, I'm guessing that's where these guys got them, short of being on staff or having an account.



    I can't say that this "review thread" is any good though, haha.

    One of my good friends is on staff with them and he hooked me up because he knew how much I loved the z-star xv's
