In this video, Alex from GolfMagic takes the new multi-coloured Srixon Q-Star Tour Divide Golf Balls to Mannings Heath Golf and Wine Estate to see how they compared to a traditional golf ball.
Alex has reviewed many different golf products such as clubs, trolleys and GPS devices, but the new multi-coloured Srixon Q-Star Tour Divide Golf Balls could be his most extravagant one yet.
The ball is a well established and popular item in golf, but the design is certainly controversial and it is one that stands out as opposed to your regular white golf balls.
For the traditionalists amongst you, the idea of a duel-coloured, almost luminous golf ball may appear abhorrent but they are definitely worth your time because they can provide a good alignment aid and they are aesthetically pleasing.

The Srixon Q-Star Divide balls come in three different colourways to cater for everyone's preferences: Yellow and Orange, Red and Orange and Blue and Orange.
To many players who go on to try this golf ball out on the course, you will find that it may put you off for the first few holes as your eyes adjust to the colours.
Although this is an uncommon design for a golf ball, similar balls have been made in the past but they weren't exactly met with open arms.
They are interesting to say the least and Alex certainly preferred the Orange and Yellow ball, as opposed to the Red and Yellow design.
You may find that when using these newly-designed balls that the colours are very contrasting and this may be too much for your eyes and concentration to adapt to.
However on a positive note, the urethane cover of the golf ball is easy to get used to and is extremely durable. It should take up to three or four rounds before any scratches appear on the surface.
When you hit a chip or a pitch, you can see your ball spinning in the air which can feel satisfying and pleasing during your round.
For putting, the split in colour provides a distinctive alignment aid which can be very helpful for sinking more putts and hitting long putts closer to the hole.
Although the new Srixon Q-Star Divide balls are a lot of fun to play with, it may just be that they are more suitable for social rounds, rather than competition rounds.
The colours could be just too bright and too contrasting to apply your full concentration throughout the round, which isn't beneficial in competitive conditions.
The feel of the ball and the satisfying feeling of spin is a strong positive, but at £35 a dozen, you may be swayed to just purchase the normal white version of the ball.
