Lots of excitement built around these new PING G25 irons this year. Every year the G-Series iron is one of the easiest buy golf clubs au to hit. While what the 2013 G25 irons outweigh the previous G-series irons is that this year’s model is the total package — it has all the benefits of a game-improvement iron without the usual bulky soles that are inherent in the GI class.
I think one year we really should do a blind test. We close our eyes when we swing and I bet the Ping G-Whatever would win. Over the years, many PGA Tour players have used Ping “G” series irons as cheap Ping G20 Irons and G15s because of their forgiveness. I believe G25 Irons will come to top now. Marty Jertson, a senior design engineer for Ping, said the company wanted to re-align the size of the new iron to be more in the sweet spot of the game-improvement category.
With the PING G25 irons you’ll hit the ball long but with distance control. Perimeter weighted with a deep cavity design, the 17-4 stainless steel heads are highly forgiving. Support bars align with the impact area to ensure a solid feel and distance control throughout the set. Elastomer cavity badge improves feel. The Ping G25 Irons produce a high ball flight and are easy to stop on greens with good spin control. They are forgiving and tester see in increase of distance by a half to one club compared to older Ping models.
The G25 irons feature thinner, more progressive sole widths, thinner top lines and moderate offset, which will appeal to golfers of all skill levels. The sole widths vary (wide to narrow) from the 3-iron through pitching wedge to provide higher-launching, more forgiving long irons, and short irons with added playability and control. The G25 irons have a more traditional look compared to the G15 and G20 lines and look like the Ping I20 Irons cheap.
Structural reinforcements in the crown, sole and skirt provide a solid feel and sound. The variable-thickness face delivers a powerful energy transfer for faster ball speeds and greater distances. Re-engineered Custom Tuning Port integrated low into the sole to lower mass and position the center of gravity for high-launching, forgiving results. The grinds will reduce the working or “effective” bounce on the sole, meaning the club head will rip through the turf with more ease. That will give lower-handicap players an exciting opportunity to experiment with a more forgiving irons without the typical drawback of wide soles.
