There are a lot of people that play G25 irons including myself. I have had mine since they hit the market it just so happened I was looking at new irons at the time. I spent weeks trying new irons at Rodger Dunn, on the last visit it was about 4 hours to narrow down to these.
The only reason for them to not go as far is brands like TM are jacking up the lofts on there irons. Example if I take a 7i from TM say I hit it 160, I take my 6i G25 and hit it 160, not a big deal, club down.
What I found was I liked the feel, consistency, weight and the stock steel shafts that Ping offered on these. I played the TM Rocketbladz for about a month and took them back they felt a bit hard and light to me, that is MO only.
Would I buy them again, with out a second thought, I am not a brand person, I bought what fit my game you should do the same for yourself.
