With the launch of the Ping G30 the inventory of the G25 is sure to go on sale. It is on sale right now for $299 I am sure it will be $199 shortly.
I snapped the shaft of my Ping G20 driver and did not have time to get it repaired so I picked up a Ping G25 driver, I was feeling the upgrade. The G20 was the best driver I ever had, loved it long and forgiving. You could have shots you knew you hit poorly and it still kept the ball in play and the distance was good.
The G25 driver for me is even better. I now regularly hit the longest drive I have hit on holes at my home course(s), I have had the club for 5-6 rounds. It is also very forgiving. I got it with the Mitsubishi Rayon Diamana Ahina Stiff 70 gram shaft, 8.5 degree loft. A good shot for me is a towering baby draw. It goes so high it is a little surprising. The guys I play with regularly in the beginning would say, you got under it and when it lands they were shocked. I am pretty sure I am getting the high launch low spin that is the current trend. I'll have to get on a monitor to check. I definitely hit up on the ball. With the G20 I was getting 14 degree launch angle with the G25 it has to be more.
I searched it and there is no G25 thread which surprised me. The driver is the only Ping club in my bag but when it is time for other clubs I am going to give Ping a look, great engineering.
I just wanted to throw this out there because if you are looking for a great driver at a great price these are about to be as cheap as they are going to get.
