Srixon Soft Feel Golf Balls
This item has been discontinued.
Swing speed is a measure of velocity, in miles per hour, of how fast the club head of a golf club is traveling at the point it makes impact with the golf ball. Swing speed can be recorded by a launch monitor or other electronic radar devices.
any swing speed

Balls designed for higher handicap golfers generally have harder covers that result in lower spin rates with irons and drivers. Balls designed for low handicap golfers tend to offer your more control and spin.

Trajectory is a term used to describe the flight characteristics of a golf shot. It considers the height of the shot as well as it's launch and landing characteristics.
Feel is a term that considers the firmness or compression of the golf ball. Typically the softer the golf ball feels, the lower the compression rating. A general rule of thumb about golf ball compression is that players with a lower swing speed should use a lower compression ball to take advantage of the added spring affect.
9 iron spin is regarding the backward rotation of the golf ball in flight or the measured rate of that rotation. Most golfers think of backspin more in relation to shorter irons and wedges. Backspin is what causes some wedge shots to "back up" on the green, or roll backwards after hitting the green.
The Srixon Soft Feel is ideal for a wide range of players, especially those with average to low swing speeds. Its soft core is designed to maximize energy transfer, resulting in greater distance from tee to green. The Soft Feel's higher trajectory and greater lift force, provide golfers of all abilities with a higher, longer ball flight.

User Ratings & Reviews
A few months ago I bought 3 dozen soft feel srixon golfballs, Just 2 weeks ago I opened the first dozen and started using them, after the first week getting used to the feel of the ball may handicap has gone from 13 down to 10. The ball really feels around the green, my chiping and putting accuracy has improved immeasureably, also a week ago I had my first hole-in-one on a short par 3, then one week later I had another hole-in-one on one of the toughest par 3's on our course. I would not have believed that a ball could make that much difference, but I am now a believer because this ball did just that.

People get way too caught up in the choice of balls. I'm a senior, hit driver if I nut it about 240, 6 iron 150. I can chip and putt. I've used a ProV1 for about 5 years and my low index is 1.9, currently 3.4. I played today with a Srixon soft feel for the first time. My score was one over par on a hilly course with soft greens playing to about 6100 yards. The ball performed great. I've scored in the 70's with a rock hard Top Flite and broken par with soft high spin expensive pro line balls. If you lose a lot of golf balls by all means don't play expensive $50/dozen balls. Good scoring comes from hitting fairways off the tee, playing the correct set of tees for your ability, and having a good short game. Oh yea, the ball....if you play a course with hard greens and/or courses where you don't have access to the front of greens with run up shots you would benefit from softer higher spinning golf balls. The course today had soft greens after a rain so the lower spinning Srixon soft feel worked great. At about $20 a dozen retail you won't find a better ball for this sort of course condition. If you play courses with hard greens and want to have a chance at lower scoring and successful chipping and putting consider softer cover higher spinning golf balls. Srixon has golf balls of every type for every golfer's needs. They make a quality product. One other thing, because the soft feel Srixon doesn't spin as much as a multipiece urathane cover pro line ball it will not curve off line as much if your tend to slice or hook the ball. It really likes to fly straight.

Starting using these this winter for the low compression. The ball is soft, but not too soft. Trajectory is mid-low and the spin is low. Surprising distance and superb feel on around the green shots including putting. As far as a cold weather ball goes, this is certainly the best I've tried so far (in my 40 years of golf).

The Soft Feel would be a better ball for you based upon it being a lower compression ball made for slower swing speeds. Thanks.

I am a senior citizen carrying a 15 handicap from the gold tees using a soft feel Sirxon. My driver is good for an average of 180 to 200 yards.
Should I consider moving up to the lower compression Z-star? I would say I have medium swing speed.

I don't believe that the Z Star has a lower compression than the Soft Feel. Historically it has not. Is it worth a shot, absolutely just don't expect the same soft compression feel from it. Thanks.

Stick with the Soft Feel. Your specific information about yourself matches me, and I think you can't go wrong it.
