Srixon is one of the biggest names in the golf industry. Their Soft Feel model has been one of the most popular golf balls in the game for a long time now.

Srixon Soft Feel Golf Balls

The Srixon Soft Feel golf ball is a two-piece ball, with low compression, designed for golfers with a slow to average swing speed.

As the name suggests, the ball is built to have a softer feel compared to other more budget golf balls.

The FastLayer core, with thin cover, transitions from a soft centre to a firm outer edge, which helps to give it that soft feel, whilst not sacrificing carry distance.

A 338 speed dimple pattern aims to help overall distance and performance, with reduced drag to cut through the wind more easily.

The Srixon Soft Feel comes in a choice of white or yellow for the standard ball. Or if you’re after a bit more vibrancy, the Srixon Soft Feel Brite range comes in a choice of matte green, matte red or matte orange.

Our Verdict

The Srixon Soft Feel is an icon of the Srixon ball range. It’s been a hugely popular ball for many a year and it’s not hard to see why.

For those after more ball speed, with slow to moderate swing speeds, the Soft Feel can provide that. It’s a low compression option, at just 60, which makes it an ideal choice for those golfers swinging it about 90mph and under.

As someone who swings it at around the 110 mph mark with a driver, this ball unfortunately felt a little spinny and I wasn’t able to achieve the ball flight I like to see with a driver.

The distance seemed to be sufficient however and it certainly doesn’t feel as firm off the face as other more budget options.

Around the greens is where I think the Srixon Soft Feel really comes into its own. It’s not the softest golf ball on the market, but it really does offer some good greenside spin for those that are looking for it.

For a thin ionomer cover, it does feel soft. Not quite as much as what you’d expect to feel from a urethane-covered ball, but it certainly can offer some good control around the greens.

For approach shots and chip shots near the greens, the Soft Feel doesn’t jump off the face quite as much as some other balls in the mid-range category such as the Bridgestone e6.

This means it’s a little easier to control the flight of these sorts of shots and won’t have you overcooking the carry distance as much.

When on the putting surface, the Soft Feel has a lovely sound off the putter face which I really like. I think it’s really important to have a golf ball which sounds good to help add a little bit of confidence to your putting stroke.

I also really like the new alignment line design on the side of the ball. As someone that usually draws a line on my ball to help with my putting accuracy, this was certainly a welcome addition.

As for the Brite range of balls, it’s a no from me. However, they do offer the same performance benefits.

So overall, would I recommend the Srixon Soft Feel golf ball? Absolutely yes I would.

It’s a firmer golf ball which has the softer feel to match those slightly more premium golf balls. If you’re looking for maximum distance, you’ll find better balls on the market which can offer more distance.

But for the overall package and at a very reasonable price, I don’t think any mid-to-high handicap golfers can go wrong with the Srixon Soft Feel balls. It’s very good value, provides good distance and incredible softness around the green.

Final Thoughts
