In launching the new products, Srixon said science has proven that yellow is the most visible colour in the visual spectrum, while psychology has correlated green with calming and stress relief, which is why it combined the two colours.
The Z-Star and Z-Star X Tour Yellow golf balls also use ultra-thin, urethane cover technology, a larger core and cover to improve distance, spin and feel.
“The new Z-Star and Z-Star X Tour Yellow golf balls are currently being tested by numerous PGA and Nationwide Tour players, who are oresently playing the Srixon Z-Star series of balls,” said Chris Beck, brand manager for Srixon®.
“The response from our tour staffers has been overwhelmingly positive,” he added. “We understand that players at all levels of the game want to lower their scores and the Tour Yellow balls have definitely peaked the interest of our tour players, as well as consumers.”
The Z-Star Tour Yellow ball lines both feature Energetic Gradient Growth core technology to promote increased ball speed, as well as high launch and low spin.
The newly-developed 324 large seamless dimples are in place to reduce wind resistance for increased distance, while the new coating on their soft urethane cover is designed to improve spin performance from the rough.
