Srixon AD333 Golf Balls

The new Srixon AD333 two-piece ball takes a lot of its new design from the more premium Z Star range, including a new FastLayer Core for a better feel and control around the greens.

The Srixon AD333 compression has been reduced from 77 to 72, to help produce a better ball speed and flight for more moderate swing speeds.

The 338 Speed Dimple Pattern has also been included to help cut through the wind and reduce drag.

The 2-piece Ionomer core features Spin Skin with SeRM technology, a coating which bonds into wedge and iron grooves for maximising spin performance.

The AD333 golf balls come in a choice of white or yellow and will cost you less than £25 for a dozen.

Our Verdict

The Srixon AD333 golf ball has been a classic in the Srixon range since 2006, and one of the brand’s top performers in terms of sales.

It’s been a hugely popular choice of golf ball for many golfers, looking for a ball that can do it all, but won’t cost too much money.

And having taken the ball out for a few rounds, there’s certainly a lot to like about it.

When you take them out of the box, they look really good. I love to newly improved alignment line for help with lining up putts. The cover also looks more reminiscent of the Z Star family.

Performance-wise, they do feel really nice off the clubface. Certainly not as firm as I was perhaps expecting and they made a nice sound whilst on the putting surface.

For my golf swing, the compression is a little low, so I wasn’t able to get the maximum distance and flight out of them. However, it was still a more penetrating ball flight than the Soft Feel, which had less drag and was not quite as spinny.

On approach shots, the AD333 does deliver a decent amount of control. If the strike is good, stopping the ball with short irons and wedges is certainly possible.

Around the greens is where I struggled to get to grips with how the AD333 feels. Srixon claims the new FastLayer delivers exceptional feel, and to be fair, there is a noticeable amount of spin control. For me, it’s a little firmer than I’d like off the face, so I found I was always overhitting chip shots.

The durability of the AD333 was also very impressive. Having used it for 2 complete rounds, there were very few signs of wear, despite multiple shots out of bunkers.

So is the Srixon AD333 golf ball a good choice for your game this season?

If you’re a golfer with a moderate swing speed and who wants the most bang for your buck, the Srixon AD333 is one of the best options on the market. For the price, you get a complete golf ball that is good (not great) in all departments.

Yes, there’s balls that go further or have greater feel around the greens. But those balls will either cost you much more or will drastically sacrifice other areas of golf ball performance.

Srixon AD333 Golf Balls Pros

  • One of the best all-around golf balls
  • Lower compression for slower swing speeds and more penetrating flight
  • Enhanced alignment line
  • Nice feel off the putter

Srixon AD333 Golf Balls Cons

  • Further and softer golf balls are available
  • Not enough greenside control

Final Thoughts

It’s clear to see why the Srixon AD333 golf ball has been such a popular ball choice for many years.

It’s a good ball for distance and control, two of the key factors important in a golf ball.

If you’re looking for slightly more distance, the Callaway CXR Power could be a good choice or the Bridgestone e6.
