PING G25 Opinion

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 

I went from TaylorMade in 2011 to Callaway in 2012 and now to PING. 

 

Opinion on the irons -

  1. Hands down the most accurate irons I have used to date
  2. Feel heavier than my old Callaway RAZR irons
  3. "W" iron, having a bit of trouble figuring out distance as I am used to "AW" from Callaway.."W" is a bit longer club
  4. Overall the irons hit further than my past irons.
  5. Very comfortable grips.  White line on the iron I have missed, it helps getting everything squared.  My RAZR X didn't have that.

 

Opinion on the driver -

  1.  Longest driver ever owned (268 into the wind).  RAZR Fit was average 250 yard, wind would put me about 240

  2.  Found that I need to change the shaft from regular to stiff to improve accuracy due to swing speed.

  3.  Largest head on a driver I have ever owned, actually helped me feel a bit more confident

 

Opinion on the fairway woods -

  1.  Still not 100% sold on the woods.  I like the fact there is no gloss/reflection from the driver or woods.

Welcome to the Ping family.

Thanks for the feedback.  I'll be reviewing the G25 driver for the site and I think our G25 irons review will be published soon.

The W is equivalent to the PW and the U to the AW. That would explain why you hit the W further than your AW.

Wow, entirely new sets every year?? Or are you just trying to find the perfect one?

PS very happy with my pings!!! :)

Hi Golfingdad -

 

Yeah, the last three years I would say.  I play a lot of golf though, probably more than most...this last year I played around 60 rounds of golf.  I feel very fortunate to have been able to have done that. 


And thank you Kujan for the heads up on that, it was driving me nuts.

I have the G15 irons.  I can't see any difference between them and the G20s.  With the G25s, I only see a slightly thinner sole.

 

I've never been a big fan of PING woods.  I prefer Callaway woods.

I LOVE my G20 3 wood.

Hi Dragon...yeah I had the RAZR Fit woods and was unable to get the comfort level I was looking for. 

 

I did test the G25 3 wood today against the F26 Nickent 3 wood and was surprised...Ping won.  I honestly thought based on the hybrid f26 that the Ping was going to lose the battle...but not only did it win, it won big.  Distance was about 20 yards longer on the Ping.  Accuracy was much better on the Ping as well.

Funny you should say that, I play G15 irons but love my Cobia woods and hybrid, go figure.

I love my G25 irons. Best irons I've ever had. Great feeling off the face and very forgiving. Nice looks too.

My Bag:

Titleist Bag

Callaway Razr Hawk Driver

Callaway Diablo Octane 3 Wood (I love the 200cc oversized head, in particular since I've often struggled with 3 Woods). 

Cobra Baffler Rail H Hybrids 17 & 22.  I also have a Baffler Rail H 25 Degree that I will swap out with my 5 Iron on long courses or if I blowing up with the 5 Iron. I'm not always proficient with the 5 Iron, so the hybrid comes into play when that happens...

PING G15 Irons 5-PW

Titleist Vokey Spin Milled Wedges 50, 54 & 58

Odyssey Black Series TD Putters #1 & #5.  When I sour on one, I have the other.  Usually, I stay with the blade, but when greens are really slow or putting gets into my head a1_smile.gif, I throw the mallet into the bag.

Callaway Balls - Whichever I can get in RockBottom Ammo Boxes!  I like the HX-Hots and Big Bertha Diablos...  Or the Warbird Plus works if I can't find the others.

I am new here, and I would like to comment on The G25 irons. I had RBZ last year and didn't really care for them at all. Tried the new pings and Wow, I'm glad I did. I've always played a stiff flex, but got fitted(a must) and I'm a reg flex and hit the 7 iron 10 yds farther on avg w/ little effort. Waiting on mine to come in. An absolute must try iron if in the market for new set.

What color code did you get?
post #15 of 17
I got the black dot, w/ a half inch added. Basically 1 degree upright.

I also tried the g25 driver. I really liked the way it looked and hit it over and over along w/ titleist 913 d2. I hit the d2 much better and went w/ it. Got stiff flex whiteboard shaft.

I have been using the i15 driver for 3+ years now, and can't get it out of my bag.  Love PING drivers, and I was eyeballing the S56 irons too...
