Ping G425 irons are the new release for 2021 to replace the G410 as the number one option from the manufacturer. GolfReviewsGuide.com takes a look at what has changed.
Ping have made the blade length shorter than it the predecessor the G410 irons and produce a more streamlined and compact set for irons with a higher MOI than in any G-Series model.
The irons, which are joined by new G425 drivers, G425 woods, G425 hybrids and G425 crossovers, have a variable thickness face to produce the fastest ball speed Ping have ever managed to extract from this series.
What Ping say about the G425 irons:
“A variable-thickness, Hyper 17-4 stainless steel face in the metal-wood-style design delivers our fastest ball speed ever in the G-Series for generating higher, longer results with stopping power.
“The metal-wood-style, variable-thickness face and internal geometry increase ball speed and flexing for launching shots higher and farther with stopping power to hold greens.
“Expanded perimeter weighting in this smaller head design sets a new standard in forgiveness for an iron its size.
“A patented cascading sole and top-rail undercut combine to perform like a hinge, flexing to launch the ball faster and higher with green-holding precision consistently and predictably.”
Ping G425 Irons Design & Features
Ping have exactly ripped up the design of previous models, but have opted to move in a different direction when it comes to the face of the G425s.
Ping has redesigned the face of the new G425 irons and introduced a variable thickness face made of heat-treated 17-4 stainless steel to unleash even more ball speed and distance that the G410 irons.
More subtle improvements have been made to the shape of the club head too with the heel and toe length shortened for a more compact look at address.
With a slightly smaller head, Ping’s design team have been able to move weight to the edge of the club head via a hosel weight and tungsten toe score to help add to the forgiveness this model offers.
With increased MOI as a result, the loss of power from off-centre ball strikes has been reduced for a consistent performance from fairways, the rough or even the tee.
Part of the design is a patented cascading sole and top-rail undercut for a faster and higher ball flight, while the cavity has a multi-material badge (as Ping call) for improved feel and sound.
The G425s also have a Hydropearl 2.0 finish to give the irons a seriously appealing and attractive look.
The irons are available in 4-iron to pitching wedge as well as utility wedge, sand wedge and lob wedge.
