Srixon recently launched the new Z-STAR and Z-STAR X Tour Yellow golf balls. According to Srixon, numerous studies have concluded that yellow is the most visible color to the eye. They also claim that green is psychologically calming to the brain. So at address these balls are supposedly helping before you even make a swing.

PGA TOUR professionals Vijay Singh and Jim Furyk, as well as a worldwide contingent of professional golfers are currently playing the Z-STAR and Z-STAR X series of golf balls. Tour victories for the Z-STAR ball series include Henrik Stenson's victories at the 2008 Nedbank Golf Challenge and the 2008 Omega Mission Hills World Cup, as well as Tim Clark's win at the 2008 Australian Open, John Rollins victory at the 2009 Reno-Tahoe Open and Jim Furyk's win at the 2009 Chevron World Challenge.

The Z-STAR and Z-STAR X Tour are Srixon's new premium golf balls, and will cater to all types of players looking to improve distance, spin, and feel. They have the ever popular ultra-thin urethane cover that is easily destroyed by a wedge, but provides great feel. They start shipping to retailers on April 1, 2010 with a MSRP of $39.99.

callaway20tour20proto1The Callaway Forged X Prototype Blade was apart of the Tour Authentic release and cannot be overlooked. They come from a company that has based their goals on forgiveness and not necessarily the workability achieved from a blade, which is why they are only offered in limited amounts.

If you can find a set, they will feature a X-Muscle flighted design which places the center of gravity in the shorter irons at the highest muscle point and progressively moves it to the lowest point in the longer irons. This allows for trajectory control which moves to the lowest in the long irons for high, soft landing shots.

They are also made from soft 1020 carbon steel and are forged by the famed Endo manufacturing facility. All in all these irons offer a good balance of forgiveness and feel when it comes to the blade style category.
