Played the Q-Star Tour Divide for one round last week and I just couldn't get used to it. I'm sure it has it's benefits, but I wasn't a huge fan. Went back to the Chromesoft LSX triple track pretty quick. Didn't know what to think of the matte finish either, I'd like to try the Z-Star sometime and I think this is an interesting concept it was just too distracting for me and my already messed up head (when it comes to golf). LOL.
I am curious How did you use it to tee off? I always pick 1 color to tee off. I think the Red side go farther!:ROFLMAO:
I do putt with it sideways but that lets me see how my roll is.

Honestly I didn't tinker with it much and that's on me. I've played Callaway exclusively all year, but my wife bought these for me for Christmas and when I was getting low on CS in the bag I gave these a shot. I didn't really pick a side on the tee and that was probably a mistake and i played the Blue/Yellow so maybe that wasn't the best choice either.

On the green I did line it up sideways, but after a year of using Triple Track it just messed with my noggin.

I'd definitely like to spend more time with them because I've really enjoyed the Q Star Tour in the past, it's a great ball.

Later this year I'll try them again and see if picking a color off the tee helps and see if I can find some red ones.

Ha! I'd forgotten all about these. I'd bought a couple boxes just before I took my golf hiatus.

I wonder if the red is harder to find than the orange would be. It certainly stand out more in hand.

I always thought red from other MFGs was super hard to find in rough.

You wouldn't think so, but, oddly: It is. Or can be. Particularly in fall leaves.

I did a test two autumns ago, comparing the visibility of various ball colors in a mix of rough and leaves. Much to my surprise, the ones easiest to spot were bright green, green/yellow, and bright yellow, IIRC. Even the almost fluorescent red ball I had was less visible than those. And that was really bright.

The worst, of the colors I had, was pink. White wasn't much better.

I think I posted that test here. I'll see if I can find it.

Here we go: Fall Golf Ball Color Test

Purely subjective but I’ve lost more red/yellow than orange/yellow. To my eyes the orange/yellow stand out more in most golf ball hiding places at the courses I typically play

I play the Q-Star Tour and love it. I found one of the Red/Yellow divides and now use it on the par 3's when I'm sure I won't lose it. I like them a lot and will be buying a dozen. I wish you could buy a dozen white with one sleeve of divides.
