Ping G425 Fairway Woods feature three redesigned models new for 2021. GolfReviewsGuide.com takes a look at the successors to the G410.
Part of the G425 family featuring drivers, hybrids, crossovers and irons, the new G425 woods have some notable changes from the G410 woods.
The G425s include the Max, LST (Low Spin Technology) and SFT (Straight Flight Technology) models, and the tweaks a significant from previous woods from Ping.
In the new fairways, as well the hybrids, two new design elements – Facewrap and Spinsistency – are key to increasing distance and providing more consistency on spin levels.
NEW FOR 2022: Review of the Ping G430 fairway woods
What Ping says about the G425 woods:
“In the G425 fairways and hybrids, two shared Ping innovations known as Facewrap and Spinsistency combine to deliver more distance and spin predictability for carrying trouble and hitting greens.
“A tungsten sole weight increases the MOI in the stainless steel heads for added forgiveness.
“Thinner, high-strength steel wraps into the crown and sole to increase flexing for faster speeds that result in greater distance and high-launching shots.
“A complex face curvature modifies the roll profile, mainly low on the face where loft decreases, to bring more consistent spin performance and increase ball speed for added distance.
“On the crown, a new 3-dot alignment feature provides golfers a visual cue to address the ball to best match their eye.”

Ping G425 Max Woods Review
The G425 Max fairway has the highest MOI of the three models and Ping believe they have added significant distance from this wood than the G410 fairways.
It is the Facewrap and Spinsistency technologies which combine to deliver more distance and spin in the new design.
The Max model features a tungsten sole weight increases the MOI to improve the forgiveness in this latest fairway design, while the new three dot feature on the crown is to help with alignment and aim.
The G425 Max woods are fully adjustable with eight positions on the hosel to help dial in the perfect lie and loft to suit your game.
The G425 Max woods are available in 3-wood, 5-wood, 7-wood and 9-wood lofts.
Ping G425 LST Woods Review
The G425 LST fairway is known as the Low Spin Technology model and is suited to golfers with higher than average swing speeds.
The LST driver has the smallest head of the three models with the more compact club head helping to increase speed and ball speed.
It is extremely forgiving, boasts a deep penetrating ball flight and produces less spin off the club face to maximise distance.
Again, the Facewrap and Spinsistency technologies are the key design element in the LST, which is only available in a 3-wood loft. It is fully adjustable with up to eight positions.
Ping G425 SFT Woods Review
Straight Flight Technology is what the G425 SFT woods have been design with, helping you find more fairways.
If you struggle with a slice, the SFT is the perfect options with the larger club head boasting heel-side CG to provide the forgiveness that all golfers with a fade or slice shape will love.
The weighting is designed to promote a right to left shot shape and to straighten out the fades or slices.
Like the Max and LFT models, Spinsistency and Facewrap are again the key elements to both ball speed and consistency spin levels off the face.
The SFT woods are available in 3-wood, 5-wood and 7-wood options with up to eight adjustable positions.
