SRIXON AD333 TOUR

Golf Asia - - GOLFING GEARGUIDE -

YOU NEED TO KNOW:

De­signed for skilled golfers with mod­er­ate swing speeds who want the per­for­mance and feel of a tour ball. A lower com­pres­sion lets golfers achieve op­ti­mal dis­tance on full shots. A ure­thane cover and Spin Skin (like Srixon’s Z-star) gen­er­ates spin and con­trol.

A tour ball that’s op­ti­mised for av­er­age swing speeds, and un­like some the AD333 Tour’s not gone chas­ing low com­pres­sion at all costs. A 72 com­pres­sion means the Tour feels firm enough with a driver and irons, but soft enough to of­fer ex­cel­lent feed­back within the short game and on the green. It’s no slouch when it comes to dis­tance, ei­ther, record­ing a carry dis­tance within five yards of the long­est on test (the dis­tance­ori­en­tated Titleist Ve­loc­ity). Feels great off

only a wedge, though spin was a lit­tle down.

You won’t find much in golf that’s less ex­pen­sive this year than last. Srixon, though, have dropped the Tour’s price for 2018. We’d say it’s a per­fect ball

Srixon say while com­peti­tor ionomer balls of­fer sim­i­lar dis­tance on full shots as the AD333, their ball dis­tin­guishes it­self with ex­cel­lent green­side con­trol, thanks to Spin Skin tech­nol­ogy. for golfers who like the feel of a tour ball, but don’t quite own the swing speed needed to com­press one fully. A lovely “nor­mal” feel through­out the bag will win over golfers not sold on softer balls.

WE SAY:

Over the last 15 years the AD333 has carved out a fond place among many club golfers, and we can see why based on its solid across-the­board per­for­mance. A great ball for greedy golfers who in­sist on stack­ing ev­ery­thing in their favour. A driver ball speed within 2mph of the fastest on test means the AD333 is pow­er­ful; back­spin was a lit­tle higher which robbed our test pro of a few yards, but wedge back­spin was the sec­ond high­est on test which is in­cred­i­ble for a two-piece golf ball. Our test pro said the AD333 of­fered an al­most per­fect blend of high en­ergy from the tee and good back­spin with the wedges, and all at a bril­liant price.

A very well-rounded, rea­son­ably priced golf ball that comes with an ex­cel­lent pedi­gree for tons of nor­mal golfers. Ide­ally po­si­tioned to per­form for a wide range of swing speeds. The solid sound but soft feel is well suited to play­ers who don’t want to join the march to­wards low-com­pres­sion balls.
