Full disclosure , I am a 25 handicap . Tried some G25 graphite irons at Golfsmith and hit them really well . Don't carry lower than a 5 iron and hit it tops , 160 yds with steel shafts Cobras . Am a senior with good flexibility . Question : 1 . Is it worth spending the extra $$$ for the g25 set . 2 . Is it worth spending more for graphite . I know graphite should give more distance but since I go from 5 iron to hybrid , will the graphite expense be worth it as well ?
Ping G25 vs G20 irons

I love my G25's with the stock CFS steel shaft, I went for the 4-PW, I use a Ping Tour 50. 54 and 58 wedge and love them.
Looking at a 3 or 4 wood right now maybe the G25 or the new Cobra but will fill the gap with a hybrid depending on the wood I get.
I was not to crazy about graphite shaft irons I tried them all and for the little extra distance I could not control or feel I was in control of my irons but hey that is just me.
Great irons, but there are a lot of brands that are very nice out right now.
I have not played the G20 but I have a set of G25 (steel regular) and I love them. My Callaway Razr X are a close second place.
Up to last year I played various Callaway super game improvement irons with graphite shafts (e.g., Diablo Edge). Late last year I switched to game improvement irons with steel shafts in regular flex and I like them a lot more. To be honest I don't think I lost any distance and I definitely gained more accuracy and feel with the steel shafts.
