Z Stars on sale at Academy


Recommended Posts

My wife needed to pick up a few things for church camp so I stopped at Academy for her to run in and asked her to grab a dozen Srixon Z Star XV Yellows for me. They are typically "on sale" for $29 there. She came out and told me that they were only $19. I was so stoked that I ran back in and grabbed another dozen. I even asked the cashier if she was sure about the price.

 

Just thought I'd pass on the info to any other Z Star players with an Academy in their town.

OK, given the probably limited time for this sale and the fact that I don't have the time to look for reviews/comparisons, how does this ball compare to the 2012 ProV1X? I stocked up on 6 dozen last year and still have 4 but I have no problem stocking the XV up again for next year . I played the Srixon Z-Star and loved it but I switched to the ProV just because I had $250 in proshop credits and decided to stock up on balls.

If they are pretty comparable in terms of length/spin/feel than you can't beat this deal.

They are interchangeable balls, as long as you are not funny in the head about the switch. Some people are very opinionated about what ball they use, and there is no convincing them that one or another is better/worse. For the rest of us, minor differences between balls such as the ProV1(X) and Z-star(XV) make little or no difference.

Glad to hear that they had the same price online. I might snag a few more since I live in the boonies and won't be near the store anytime soon.
I like the XVs just as much as the Pro V1x's but prefer a yellow ball because they are easier for me to track in the air and easy to identify since no one in my regular group plays a yellow ball.

Most major golf stores, i.e. PGA SS, Golfsmith, Dicks etc, will price match since Academy is brick and mortar store with a website.

I was actually thinking the same thing. I know PGASS does price matching (I think even online sites too) so I was thinking about going in there and seeing if they would. Two problems I have though: 1) I already have about 12 dozen golf balls (TP5s and Chrome+) to go through and I don't think I need anymore; 2) Illinois Sales Tax would bring these right back up to $40/ea so it would probably be best to just get them online anyway.

Huh? Illinois Sales tax would add $3 max on a $30 item - pretty sure it's 9% now in cook...My god, if it was 33%...

But it does make sense to order them from Acadamy - especially if you get many - the free ship and no tax is great. They ship quick too...my order placed on Saturday should be here tomorrow.

Yeah, I was being sarcastic/facetious. It would without question make more sense to buy from Academy if they gave free shipping and no tax.
