Equipment Update: Srixon, XXIO and Cleveland at the forefront
Srixon Z-STAR Golf Balls
The all-new, sixth generation Srixon Z-STAR golf balls are built for distance. Offering maximum distance, maximum spin, and exceptionally soft feel, the Srixon Z-STAR and Z-STAR XV golf balls go far and feel soft for complete tour-level performance from tee to green.
Developed with the close support of our tour staff, new Z-STAR golf balls signify another era of remarkable performance for the Srixon tour ball family. Built for the best and proven on tour, discover the exciting technologies within the most powerful tour balls Srixon has ever created to date.
It starts with the new, revolutionary FastLayer Core, which offers the ultimate combination of distance with soft feel. FastLayer is firm enough to deliver explosive distance, yet soft enough to produce that exceptional feel which defines a tour-caliber golf ball.
The FastLayer Core gradually transitions from a soft inner core to firm outer core delivering exceptional distance performance and a soft feel without compromise. This unique combination of soft inner core and firmer out core gives high-speed players exceptional feel and tremendous ball speed.
The all-new Z-STAR golf balls are the first golf balls in the world to use Slide-Ring Material (SeRM), a urethane compound that coats the cover of every sixth generation Z-STAR golf ball. By taking unprecedented levels of shearing force without breaking its molecular bonds, SeRM is able to dig deep into wedge and iron grooves, dramatically increasing friction and maximizing spin for more control and more stopping power on every shot.
The latest Z-STAR golf balls feature 338 Speed Dimples on each golf ball to improve overall aerodynamics for better flight performance with drivers, woods and irons. With the right combination of dimple uniformity and dimple occupancy, the unique Speed Dimple Pattern boosts distance and flies straight, even in the toughest wind conditions, ensuring consistent distances regardless of playing conditions.
The Z-STAR XV golf ball provides maximum ball speed for unmatched driver and iron distance, while still offering incredible spin, feel and control. Its dual core construction offers maximum distance and tour-level performance for higher swing speed players, such as tour professional Cameron Champ, who ranks in the top-five in driving distance on Tour this season.
“Distance is one of the major strengths of my game, and I trust the performance of the Z-STAR XV like nothing else on Tour,” Champ said.
Meanwhile the Z-STAR golf ball offers maximum greenside spin for unmatched control and stopping power. Its softer overall compression is perfectly tuned to deliver absurd greenside spin and control to high-skilled players. Its premium construction produces complete tour performance from tee to green.
The latest Z-STAR XV golf ball brings a slightly lower compression compared to the previous model, while the sixth generation Z-STAR features a slightly higher compression. The Z-STAR and Z-STAR XV golf balls are available in Pure White and Tour Yellow.

As a global leader in premium lightweight golf equipment, XXIO is proud to reveal their latest line of high quality golf clubs designed specifically for moderate swing speed golfers, the all-new XXIO Prime. XXIO Prime delivers easy distance and easy accuracy for players looking to produce high-launching shots that carry far and fly straight. XXIO Prime achieves this performance with specialized technologies that cater solely to moderate swing speed players along with astounding craftsmanship and attention to detail.
It starts with an unprecedented lightweight construction, which allows XXIO Prime to deliver more speed for moderate swing speed players. The SP-1000 shaft, with TORAYCA® T1100G carbon fiber and NANOALLOY resin, is strong yet extremely lightweight. That, along with weight savings in the grip and club head, produces woods, hybrids and irons that are remarkably fast and remarkably easy to swing.
Since lighter clubs are faster clubs, XXIO Prime ensures that more club head speed and more ball speed can be generated every time these clubs are put in play.
With the latest generation of XXIO Prime, it encourages a draw-biased trajectory without having to change a thing with the golf swing. Also, the tip section of each shaft is extremely soft, helping square the club head at the moment of impact.
Here is what Chuck Thiry, Vice President of XXIO USA had to say about the benefits of the new XXIO Prime. “The speed increases, higher launch angles, and draw bias of the new Prime will show immediate results from swing one,” Thiry said. “It’s legit lightweight power for the players that absolutely need it the most.”
The all-new XXIO Prime Woods feature a redesigned hosel structure and reduced stiffness at the tip of the driver shaft, making it easier for moderate swing speed players to shut the face at impact for longer, straighter drives.
Also, the new XXIO Prime Woods are lighter, making them faster while still remaining extremely easy to swing. A new forged cup face, made from Super-TIX® PLUS Titanium, is thinner, lighter and stronger for maximum COR across the entire face for more ball speed and enhanced distance.
Meanwhile, reach more greens in fewer shots with new XXIO Prime Hybrids. With expanded COR across the face, a lower center of gravity, and a straighter ball flight, the latest XXIO Prime hybrids greatly enhance distance from any lie on the course. Each Prime hybrid features a new, forged maraging streel cup face, which is thinner around the edges to boost COR across the face for more distance on off-center strikes.
XXIO Prime Irons provide more distance and stopping power with a higher launch thanks to a forged, Super-TIX® Plus Titanium face and CNC milled speed groove. Both of these technologies within Prime Irons increase ball speed across the entire face for easier distance and easier accuracy. High density tungsten weights and a shorter overall blade profile lower the center of gravity, making it easier to hit high-launching iron shots.
Revel in the luxury performance that comes solely from the world leader in ultra-lightweight golf equipment. Experience the all-new XXIO Prime today and indulge in distance.

Cleveland RTX 4
For more than 40 years, Cleveland Golf wedges have defined the wedge industry, constantly pushing the envelope with score-dropping innovations. With our latest face technologies, tour-preferred shaping, expanded grind offerings, and the most popular components used by Tour professionals, RTX 4 is the most versatile and most tour-focused wedge Cleveland Golf has ever produced.
The foundation of the all-new RTX 4 is Cleveland’s proprietary Rotex Face Technology. Now in its fourth generation, RTX 4 consistently delivers more spin across all conditions, providing better distance control, improved accuracy, and as a result, lower scores. Sharper Tour Zip Grooves, more durable laser milling and centered Rotex Face milling all combine to help you generate more spin on all full, pitch and chip shots.
The RTX 4 brings more versatility to the short game with four tour-developed sole grinds that provide more options and less bounce. The classic full sole design is stable on full shots and adds extra bounce on open face shots, perfect for the sand or thick rough. The mid sole (●●) features a v-shaped sole that cuts smoothly through the turf and its trailing edge relief keeps the leading edge low on open face shots.
Meanwhile, the low sole (●) is a low bounce, C-shaped grind that features relief on the heel, toe, and trailing edge for superior versatility around the greens. The all-new XLOW sole is a specialty grind with just three degrees of bounce that is unmatched for high, soft flop shots off the tightest lies. With the RTX 4 and the abundance of sole options, execute any shot you might encounter on the course.
The RTX 4 incorporates new Progressive Feel Balancing Technology, which moves the center of gravity closer to where you strike the ball, providing even better feel, consistency, and short game control. RTX 4 features a more compact blade shape with a straight leading edge in lower lofts, while higher lofts have a traditional wedge shape for pitch and chip shots around the green.
RTX 4 comes in three different confidence-inspiring finishes: Tour Satin, Black Satin, and Tour Raw. Tour Satin provides less glare and a premium finish for the look and performance avid golfers demand. Black Satin features our new PVD process, which is ultra-durable for a longer lasting finish with the least amount of glare at address. With Tour Raw, each head is baked to a whiskey brown that naturally rusts over time.
Finally, play the exact components preferred by the world’s best players as the RTX 4 comes standard with the number one wedge shaft and the number one wedge grip on the PGA Tour.
Wherever you find your ball, there’s an RTX 4 to help get you up and down. Any lie, any surface, and any short game shot, utilize the versatility of the RTX 4 for your best wedge performance. Get more from your short game today with the all-new RTX 4 wedge from Cleveland Golf.
