I believe it's just a updated dimple design change and maybe a tad lower compression. The big deal is getting the color in tour yellow for the first time. They are up on their website today. Still $29.99 or buy 3 get 1 free personalized or not. It's a awesome ball imo.

    I got 4 dozen last year, and have hardly played them because I have quite a stash of balls. I've become partial to yellow balls......Wish I would have waited to buy to get the yellow version. Oh well, that's the price i pay for being an equipment junkie and couldn't wait to buy 4 dozen (for the price of 3). The ball is good but the Z Star is outstanding, and I have plenty of those in yellow. Curious to read the reviews of the new version.

    Once my Q-Stars and Tour Softs are gone, QST are a great price point for urethane, will probably be my next ball next season. image/wink.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=';)' />

    I would be interested to see these compared to the AVX performance, feel, etc. QST is a similar ball at a lower price point.

    This is a great move. The QST is an underrated gem and the yellow is a stunner Love playing the yellow Z Stars. Will definitely be buying some.

    The version that I tried last year spun a good deal too much for me off the tee.



    I’d be interested in a lower spin variant but I’m a bit hesistant to jump in since the RX is working so well. The best of all worlds for me would be RX performance with a slightly softer feel.

    It would have been nice if they came out with the 6 ball pack deals to introduce the new Q-Star Tour.



    The first time I tried them, I didn't really care for them but just played them again the other day and they are a good ball. I also just purchased a couple dozen of them since a store was selling them for only $17 a dozen (previous gen) which I thought was a good price even though I didn't need more golf balls!

    Srixon still may do that. The new version of the Q-Star Tour was just introduced in the last couple of days. The previous Q-Star Tour was sold in the 6 ball packs.

    I bought a dozen qst golf balls and thought the world of them until I realized that they suffered distance issues on off-center hits more so than other golf balls I play. I have heard others complain likewise, and hope they have fixed that issue. Although I won't play them anymore I don't think, cuz I like the z-star golf ball much better.

    QST is unlikely to have the rather oddball [pun intended] combination of traits that AVX has. QST is going to probably spin a bit more and fly higher.

    Overall construction and dimensions look to be the same. Looks like a slightly lowered overall compression (supposed softer core and firmer mantle) and new dimple design to align with the ZStar/XV.



    1st gen (2017) - 75 compression, 324 dimples, 2nd gen spin skin

    2nd gen (2019) - 72 compression, 338 dimples, softer core/firmer mantle, 3rd gen spin skin, yellow added

    I found the original QST to be a very good ball for my mid 90's driver swing. Nice performance around the green, too. I'll be very happy to buy the original version at close out prices!!!

    AVX feels a little softer and has a little more spin on short irons.

    Tell me, who doesn't have off-center hits with their driver? My point was with the qst the off-center hits seem more extreme then say the Z star or other quality golf balls. It is on the ball, in my opinion , because it has greater distance issues then other golf balls that are hit off center. That isn't just my findings, but also some other folks as well.

    Was playing a QST for an evening 9 last night. Zero complaints w this ball. And, trust me, I suffer from “off center hits”. The ball has a nice shape off the driver, goes long for me, and stops fairly well on the greens. Short irons go high with it. Best in its price gap from what I know. Interested to see the details on the reworking of this ball.

    I ordered two boxes of each color as I find the QST to be the best ball for the price out there. I played one of the last version yesterday and it was great all around. I've been using the CS Truvis Merica ball which I also love and the QST is every bit as good for my swing and game. Now, compared to the new Ksig its not even close, the QST is tons better. I have a very low opinion of the new Ksig Rock.

    same here, i am playing the AVX, but if these are close in performance and I cant get 5A AVX's, this could be a good cheap option...the snell black is just a bit to hard for my liking, but incredible ball

    I recently got a couple rounds in w the AVX and play the QST often. I’m a 14 index and am very happy w the QST FWIW. If I was a +2, who knows? Point is that many would like the Srixon for the price.

    Any feedback on the QST in yellow? How do you care the spin against let's say a Project A?

    BPH, it looks like your preference and the game level is similar as myself. With the previous version of qst, I suffer so much from side spin off driver, of course "off center hits." new version is so tempting in terms of price. I could get 1.5 dzn for $20 with coupon. How do you compare it against MTB Black?

  • hardcaliberhardcaliber Members Posts: 732 ✭✭✭✭✭
    I agree with the comments about too much side spin off the driver, miss hit or no. I really felt like the ball accentuated hooks and slices over competition such as RX or AVX. I would really hope to like the new version based on price point. Waiting to hear real world feedback.

    +1 on real world feedback on QST in yellow. Anyone take these for a ride yet?
  • KmacKmac Members Posts: 755 ✭✭✭✭✭
    I'm pretty shocked to see the comments about a lot of side spin with the QST. Not calling any of you liars or anything just surprised is all. I played the QST quite a bit over the last year or so along with some AVX, new Ksig and the new Titleist balls. Loved the AVX but not the price. Specially when for me and my swing the QST was just as good if not better. I'm a 15 cap and one day can shoot a 82 and the next 102. That being said I have two boxes showing up in each color this week and cant wait to see if they go straighter since they were already pretty straight for me. Sounds like I'll never miss a fairway! lol - IF it ever stops f*cking raining!

    Sounds like we have similar games. Did you really not feel like the QST had a lot more side spin than AVX? Not calling you a liar either, just interesting how much our experience can vary.

    No, not at all. I thought it was one of the better balls for driver spin that I played, in all honesty. I still have a box of them so I'll probably play them this Saturday and see if I see something different from my past experience. Think I burned through my box of AVX but I did find them to be a really good ball.
  • BeerPerHoleBeerPerHole Members Posts: 1,265 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    Yeah, I can sidespin any ball off the driver like nobody's business. But, this ball is one of the better balls for me - for whatever reason. I am really happy with how I can put this ball where I want it to go off the clubface. It's funny how different people form different impressions of different balls. For some reason, for example, I found the Gamer Soft to be really short off the driver, which I would guess is very unusual.
