Like all clubs in the new G25 range, the most striking thing about the Ping G25 irons is the looks.
They have a more traditional look compared to the G15 and G20 lines. 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 other key enhancement on the G25 iron is the repositioning of Ping’s trademark elastomer custom tuning port lower behind the face. Designed to improve feel, the port is notched near the sole and aligned directly behind the impact area to help lower the center of gravity and help launch shots higher.
The Custom Tuning Port (CTP) is integrated into the sole to lower the mass and position the CG for high-launching, forgiving results. The CTP aligns directly with the impact area, allowing for a lower CG and a high MOI. Support bars in the cavity stabilize the 17-4 stainless steel face to ensure a solid feel and exceptional distance control throughout the set. A multi-material cavity badge further enhances sound and feel.
The progressive sole widths provide higher-launching, more-forgiving long irons, and short irons with added playability and control. A sleeker design featuring thinner top lines and moderate offset offers a look that will appeal to a wide variety of golfers looking for a high-launching, extremely forgiving game-improvement model.
In short, Ping have kept all the performance benefits of previous G irons but added to the aesthetic appeal. The attractive new dark, non-glare matte finish eliminates reflections and helps the golfer focus.
