PING G425 Family
PING has been a popular brand with golfers for decades. To continue that trend, the fashionable company has released the G425 Family—it’s a range of drivers, fairways, hybrids and irons gaining tremendous admiration.
There are three drivers on offer—G425 Max, G425 LST and G425 SFT. All drivers are engineered with a multi-material construction that includes a cast Ti 8-1-1 body to improve acoustics for a solid sound and a forged T9S+ face to accelerate face flexing for more distance. Other features include a high-density tungsten back weight and a lightweight aluminum/thermoplastic adjustable hosel with five loft settings. For faster swing speeds and ball speeds, G425 drivers are fitted with turbulators to reduce aerodynamic drag.
G425 Max is the primary model, which PING says is the most forgiving driver in golf! The 460cc driver head with dragonfly crown technology elevates the moment of inertia to the company’s highest level in history. It features a 26-gram tungsten movable weight that can be positioned to shift the center of gravity lower for higher launch. To offer more forgiveness and a variety of shot shaping options, the center of gravity weight can be set to neutral, draw or fade.
G425 LST uses Low Spin Technology to reduce spin by around 200rpm when compared to the G410 LST model. Crafted with a pear-shaped 445cc head, G425 LST contains a 17-gram center of gravity movable weight that can be adjusted to draw, neutral and fade.
G425 SFT is engineered with a draw bias. This driver model is best suited to golfers who regularly strike their tee shots to the right. The 460cc head with Straight Flight Technology features a fixed 23-gram tungsten back weight that moves the center of gravity to the heel. This positioning of the back weight combined with a lighter swingweight promotes a right-to-left shot shape.
G425 Fairways and G425 Hybrids are constructed with 17-4 stainless steel body and a maraging steel face. They are crafted with two PING innovations—Facewrap Technology and Spinsistency.
Facewrap design increases clubface flexing for greater distance and higher launch. PING achieve faster ball speeds by extending a thin, high-strength maraging steel face into the crown and sole.
Spinsistency technology helps increase ball speed for greater distance—especially from miss-hit shots struck low on the clubface. The faces of the fairways and hybrids are designed with a complex face curvature to achieve more consistent spin performance.
For better alignment, G425 Fairways and Hybrids contain a new 3-dot visual cue on the crown. And, for added forgiveness, these models are fitted with a strategically positioned high-density tungsten sole weight.
The G425 Fairway is available in LST (Low Spin Technology and SFT (Straight Flight Technology).
G425 Irons were created with a new face design after PING engineers used a metal-wood-style variable face thickness strategy. This increases the flexing in the face to produce faster ball speeds. Other benefits include gaining a higher launch with improved stopping power to stay on the greens.
The beautifully shaped irons are built with a more compact head. Savings in total mass allowed PING to re-allocate weight to the toe and hosel, which expanded the perimeter weighting for more forgiveness.
A multi-material cavity badge covers more of the face to diminish objectionable frequencies. Players will enjoy a superb feel and pleasing sound from every well-struck shot.
G425 wedges have precision-milled grooves for enhanced touch and control around the greens.
G425 Crossover offers golfers long-iron-type performance off the tee or off the ground. The versatile club features a thinner face and internal geometry to help players strike high-flying shots. Toe and hosel weights expand perimeter weighting for more forgiveness. G425 Crossover is available in three loft options—2 (18º), 3 (20º), 4 (22.5º).
