Pull back the cover on any golf ball and you’re guaranteed to find several different components and layers. We only see the cover but the most prominent component is usually the core and how it works together with the other layers unlocks performance.

As Srixon’s softest tour-level performance ball to date, the all-new Q-Star Tour features a reformulated FastLayer Core, softer urethane cover, and Spin Skin* technology to give moderate swing speed players more distance and control than ever before.

“The new Q-Star Tour is a high-calibre option for players wanting to hit the ball farther, see more spin around the greens, and have more control across the course,” said Joe Miller, European Product Manager, Srixon Sports Europe. “Players can work the ball tee to green with confidence and with an updated FastLayer Core, they can generate more ball speeds and distance without compromising feel.”

Creating a faster golf ball while still maintaining great feel begins with the Q-Star Tour’s new FastLayer Core. This generation’s reformulated core has a slightly higher compression rating than its predecessor. This new core promotes better ball speed off the tee, while also reducing long-game sidespin in Woods and Irons shots for more accuracy and control.


Around the greens, the Q-Star Tour packs serious spin and control thanks to its ultra-thin, premium urethane cover that’s now even softer than the previous generation. Srixon’s specialised Spin Skin coating increases friction on every strike by digging deep into club face grooves, maximising spin for more control and stopping power on approach shots.


To help maximise distance, Srixon’s 338 Speed Dimple Pattern increases lift and reduces drag for a more penetrating ball flight, even in the toughest conditions.

Srixon is also set to release the second generation of the Q-Star Tour Divide. With its 50/50 premium urethane cover and 360° alignment, Q-Star Tour Divide lets golfers see the game in a whole new way.

“The new Q-Star Tour Divide helps golfers align more accurately on the putting greens and see the way the ball spins on pitch and chip shots for more visual feedback,” said Joe Miller. “It’s a great way to see the game.”
