I currently play Ping G15s with graphite shafts which I have had for a number of years. Yeah I know a lot of people don't like the G series from Ping, but I do. Anyway, I hit the G25s at Golfsmith the other day and really like everything about them, I'd say more then my G15s. But damn they are expensive and Golfsmith would only give me $160 on a trade-in of my G15s. The question is I'm I ready to spend $700 to $800 dollars on a new set of clubs when I play my G15s really well? I'm in quandary, do I spend the money just because I like the clubs or pass and just continue to play my G15s for a few more years?
Ping G25s, to buy or not to buy, that is the question?

Now the wait for them to come in.
The G25 is a pretty big departure from the G15. While the G15 had a very thick sole, the G25 is a more progressive set getting thinner soles as you move into the shorter clubs.
I was given the opportunity to buy a new set of golf clubs as a present from my wife this spring. I decided on the G25's and considered the G15 and G20's since they were up to 1/2 off.
To me the biggest advantage of the G25's isn't just the thinner soles but also the CFT shafts.
I will make some assumptions for the following statement. A - You have $800 to spend on the game of Golf. B - you have a goal of getting better at golf
So the question is this, do you believe that spending the $800 on those clubs will be the best way to spend $800 on improving your golf game?
I ordered a full set of G25 irons 2 weeks ago. The FedEx Tracking info says they are scheduled for arrival at my local Golfsmith tomorrow. I already have a tee-time set up (at Glen Dornoch GC) for Thursday morning to try these out.
I have been playing a set of G2's for the last 10 years...and LOVED how the G25's felt when hitting them for the fitting.
