Over the past several seasons, Ping developed a reputation for building extremely stable and forgiving drivers. Clubs such as the G, the G30, the G400 and last season’s G410 Plus blend a high moment of inertia with custom-fitting features that help protect ball speed on off-center hits and keep shots from curling outside the fairway.
With the release of the G425 Max, G425 LST and G425 SFT, that reputation is being solidified even further.
Ping G425 irons: Smaller and faster for 2021
If you looked up “forgiving irons” in the golf dictionary (not a real thing, but it should be), you would be greeted with pictures of Ping G Series irons. Since the initial launch of the G2 in 2003, Ping has continually innovated and improved its most popular and best-selling iron family, and the company is doing it again with the all-new Ping G425.
Chances are you’ll already have caught sight of some of the new Ping G425 range as it enjoyed a fast start to life on the world's professional golf tours.
Long-time Ping staffer Lee Westwood captured the European Tour’s Race to Dubai in December using the new G425 LST driver, G425 Max fairway wood and G425 hybrid and was full of praise for the new line-up and the distance gains he’s enjoyed from the new gear.
PING G425 DRIVER KEY TAKEAWAYS
- The PING G425 Series of drivers is finally coming to North America and Europe.
- The 3 models, MAX, SFT, and LST offer exceptionally high MOI, slice correction, and low spin performance, respectively.
- Retail price is expected to be around $500.
Given the consistently excellent performance of PING drivers in Most Wanted testing over the last several years, expectations for the G425 lineup should rightfully be among the highest of any models hitting the U.S. market this year.
