What we say...

The fifth version of Srixon’s Q-Star Tour Divide is going to be one of the best balls of 2024 for club golfers looking for alignment help or feedback from their short game.

Srixon says the Q-Star Tour Divide lets golfers see the game in a whole new way – and we’d agree, especially after it did so well in our robot golf balls test last summer.

Each Divide cover is yellow on one half and red, blue, or orange on the other. This high contrast, matte finish makes spin visible and putting alignment easy.

Plus, Srixon used a slightly softer urethane material for this generation for even more tour-level spin and stopping power.

50-50 cover design

The 50/50 matte cover delivers a high contrast while providing the same tour-level spin and stopping power you’ll find in the new Srixon Q-Star Tour.

But instead of being painted on, Srixon have infused the Divide with bright pigments which really stand out against the green grass.

The Q-Star Tour Divide shares lots of technology with Srixon’s Z-Star line-up, which is played on tour by the likes of Brooks Koepka, Shane Lowry and Hideki Matsuyama.

But while the Z-Star targets Tour players and faster swingers, the Q-Star Tour is very much a Tour-quality ball aimed at the club golfer.

How is that possible? Srixon say that Tour performance starts around the greens, which is why the updated ball uses a 0.5mm premium urethane cover that’s coated in Slide Ring Material (SeRM).

Srixon’s Spin Skin with SeRM coating increases friction and bite for more spin and control when attacking flags.

New FastLayer core

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.

The new FastLayer Core sees a gradual transition from soft inner core to firm outer edge and behaves like a core with thousands of layers, helping to deliver distance and softer feel.

It is Srixon’s softest core that still delivers Tour-grade performance, while also dramatically reducing long game sidespin to help your tee shots fly straighter.

You’ll also find 338 dimples on every Q-Star Tour ball, a pattern used in the Z-Star balls and designed to deliver less drag and more lift for a long and true flight, even in strong winds

Around the greens, the Q-Star Tour packs superb spin and control thanks to its ultra-thin, premium urethane cover, which is now even softer than the previous generation.

Srixon Q-Star Tour Divide: Key Technology

50-50 Matt Urethane Cover

Each Q-Star Tour Divide cover is yellow on one half and red, blue, or orange on the other. This aids alignment and offers feedback on spin with wedges and putter.

FastLayer Core

The reformulated FastLayer Core offers distance and soft feel without compromise due to a gradual transition from soft inner core to firm outer edge.

New Alignment Aid

New longer side stamp helps align those critical putts.

338 Speed Dimple Pattern

Providing a penetrating ball flight in all conditions, the optimal dimple design increases lift and reduces drag to maximize distance.

What Srixon say about the new Q-Star Tour Divide Golf Ball

“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, European Product Manager, Srixon Sports Europe. “It’s a great way to see the game.”

What we say…

We know the Q-Star Tour is a brilliant ball for club golfers, and last year’s version was an outstanding performer in our massive robot test… it’s even better for 2024. The addition of the Divide option just gives a cool, useful look.

It’s finished really well – the matt colours are vibrant and make the ball glow. It doesn’t have Srixon’s Spin Skin, but that doesn’t seem to hugely affect the amount of spin you can get.

We particularly like using it around the green; you can instantly see how you’se struck a chip or putt, as the spin feedback is so obvious as the ball’s equator rotates.

It’s great to practice your short game and putting with, too.

If you’ve lined a put up using the divider line, that line tracks to the hole when you’ve hit it properly.

Another thing we like is that when you’re playing in a group using white balls, you always know which ball is yours!
