Hi there.

I should be grateful if anyone who is currently using a Ping G25 Hybrid, could give a rating  out of 10 for the following:-

-  Off the tee

-  From the fairway

-  From the rough

-  Ease of launch

-  Straightness

Many thanks,

Stuart

I tried the G25 when in search for a new hybrid.

I ended up liking the Mizuno JPX 825 better

but that mostly came from looks. I personally didn't

like that mat finish.

And i liked the Mizuno better out off the rough. think this is caused

by the shape. the mizuno comes easier through heavy grass.

But on the other parts it is a very good club.

it easily scores 9 on tee, fairway,  launch and forgiveness ( better word )

as for rough i must get it lower because the mizuno performs better but still

reaches a 7.

I also tried the G25 hybrids when I was getting fitted for my G25 irons. I hit them ok, but did not like the feel or the sound when hitting them. I ended up keeping my old Adams A3 Boxer hybrids for 3 and 4 because I can hit them well, but tried the new Adams Super S hybrids and really liked them. Because I have trouble with my 3 wood, I ended up getting a Super S 1 hybrid which hits the ball long and is really easy to swing and is the same loft as my old 3 wood was.

I play G25 hybrids.  I find them to be easy to hit which was my number one goal.  You are generally hitting a long shot you want it to be as consistent as possible.  I also liked the new Titleist

I play one instead of a 3 iron, this club is very easy to hit no matter where i have used it I like the sound and the mat finish. I also like the balance, i feel it fits right with my other G25 clubs.

So for me it is a 10 out of 10.

I have a 3i replacement as well.  At first I didn't like it, it felt lighter than my g25 irons, so I would try to overswing it.  Once I slowed my back swing down and remembered to take a short backswing with it, it goes like a rocket.

I don't get as much height out of it as my 4w, but I get a predictable ball flight out of most conditions (rough, fairway, etc.)

I dont get a lot of height either but, but you are right it is very predictable. I also play a G25 4 wood, dont use it a lot but they are a good combo in my bag.

I was deciding between the Ping G25, Exotics XCG6, and the Titleist 913 hybrid.  I went with the Exotics XCG6, I suggest you go and try it out. Tour Edge makes the best hybrids IMO (Tour Edge makes Exotics), also it's not that expensive.

Thank you all for your responses.

I was in the Pro Shop yesterday and had my first look at the G25 hybrid and was quite surprised as to how small the head was. I will have a trial with it and see how I get on.

Hope it works out for you. My only advice is to try all of them that you can and pick based on multiple trial then by swinging only one. When I went to buy my irons recently, I had my mind set that I wanted the JPX 825's, but left my mind open and said that I would try a bunch of different ones until I found the right club. I ended up with the G25 irons 5 - LW and could not be happier with them, but for hybrids I just liked the Adams better. Not at all to say I did not like the G25 or hit them well, just a bit better with the Adams.

I have a G25 23* that I like much better than the Callaway it replaced.  However, I find that I hit surprise snap hooks with it from time to time (a problem I also had with the Callaway, but there is was more consistent).  I just swapped it out for my 4 iron today and plan to leave it out of the bag until the weather cools off in the fall and going to the range becomes a bit more pleasant.  Then I feel confident I can sort out the swing I need with the hybrid and it'll go back into the bag.  I really like the look and feel, and when I do it right I hit it quite well, but right now it is getting me into more trouble than it's getting me out of.

This thread is a couple months old, not sure if you went for the G25's or not but here are my thoughts. I have a 20 & 23 degree. 20 is great off the tee and works well off the fairway, good distance and I get a lower ball flight. Good distance and accuracy, just don't over swing it and it goes pretty straight. 23 is really good as well, and I use it more out of rough, fairway bunkers,, etc. Also very good off the tee or fairway. Same deal as the 20, just swing smooth and it works well. Tend to get into trouble with hybrids, and G25's are no exception, when I try and swing too hard.

    • Some background information before you vote... I run a weekly game on Saturdays and Sundays with anywhere from 8-12 guys. Handicaps in my group range anywhere from 1 to 16. Expected pace of play at my course is right at 4 hours. Anything more and its frowned upon. We do not get the earliest tee times of 8am, because the course does me a favor by allowing me to have standing tee times without having to call every week. We have 9:00-9:10-9:20 every weekend.  This morning we had 7 guys, so I sent off a 3some (me included) and the last 4 guys to follow. On the 3rd hole I noticed that there was a 2some in front of us on 4 tee, and one of the guys took 5 practice swings just to top his driver maybe 4 feet. It was still on the tee box. He reteed and pulled one about 60 yards left. No biggie, golf is hard no matter how good or bad you are.  The 2some was not very good, so they were having a hard time keeping  up with the 4some in front of them. I texted the assistant pro (close buddy) in the pro shop and he came out and asked the 2some to try and keep pace or let our 3some through. We waited on every shot on 4-5-6 and finally on 7 green we hurried to the 8th tee only for them to look back at us then drive off. The issue was they were waiting for the 4some to get on the green before they would tee off, and then come nowhere close to hitting it 200 yards. On the 9th tee I finally said, "hey guys, do you mind if we play through? We will get through that 4some no problem and you wont see us again" They said sorry, but the 4some is not allowing them to play faster and that they couldnt let us through. At that point I said, you're a 2some, and 2 hours for 9 holes is not on pace. You need to push the guys in front of you so they know to let people through.  At the turn the assistant pro let us through, and we played through the 4some on 11 without them missing a beat. Ended up playing in 2 hours and 55 mins, even with the hold up (all three of us shot sub 80 rounds). After the round I thank the assistant pro for allowing us to play through, and mentioned that 2 hours for a 2some was not on pace. He told me that they complained that I was pressuring them to push the group in front of them, and that he was a tennis member who they would like to join as a golf member. The assistant pro said he has been giving one of them lessons, and that 2 hours probably should be their pace. I replied with " I have no problem with anyone shooting 120 on a Sunday morning, golf is golf, but when there is a faster group behind its golf courtesy to let them through"  I dont really care what they think, and honestly if they can get around in less than 4 hours Id be glad to have them play in my weekly game. Was I wrong for pushing a group of not very good golfers?  
    • Fired up the smoker and plan to watch in about 35 minutes.  Can't wait to see this match go down.  My money is on Rory, but we shall see.........   @natureboy - How about that 133 YARD ;) wedge shot yesterday into the elevated green with the pin placement in the front.  Mortals wouldn't have a chance at that pin....
    • Not a smart bet IMO.  Just for the fact that Spieth plays so well at the Masters.  I would take that bet on all the major excluding the Masters.  No one in their right mind would bet against Spieth at the masters, 2nd, 1st and 2nd place finishes in his last 3 attempts.  Just saying.....  I believe he will win another Major, @ the Masters.  
    • Yes, some ranges with limited space use "restricted flight" balls that don't fly nearly as far as regular golf balls (60% sounds about right).
