G20 vs. G25: Performance difference?

Recommended Posts

WUTiger    450

At a February Ping demo, I got to hit the G25 and the new i25. Both had the stock R.flex CFS shaft, which I really like, and had good Flightscope numbers for me. The G25 flew about a club longer, so I have been considering them.

A couple of years back I hit the G20 irons, and they flew pretty good. This week, a slightly used set of G20s - black dot - have shown up in the local golf shop for $450.

(New G25s would cost about $700).

Does anyone have views on performance differences between the two models, if any?

I wouldn't think there would be too much of a difference... Same lofts, very similar offset (G25 is very slightly less offset), and same club maker obviously. My understanding is that they apparently look better at address ( not as bulky, although still too bully for my taste). Does the set of G20's have the shaft you like? That would probably be the biggest factor. Also, hopefully that local shop would let you take them for a spin, or even game them since they're already used. Let us know how it turns out

i bought a set of G20's this fall and really like the clubs, but if your gonna buy the used set for 450$ why not get fitted and get a brand new set of G20's for 550$??? think something to consider . . .

No real difference in performance IMO - the G25 has a few tweaks to make it more pleasing to the eye. The top line is slightly thinner, as is the sole, whist the whole package looks more rounded and more of a players iron rather than a clunkier GI iron. The actual performance is more or less identical. The G25 just looks prettier. If you can ignore the obvious sales pitch of a newer iron in a newer package, then savings can be had. On the other hand, if you keep your eyes open for a used set of G25's - which will inevitably filter into the used market - then you could have your cake and eat it so to speak.

No difference IMO other than the appearance at address. G25's are less "chunky" looking than the G20 irons.

If you live near a Ping center they will adjust for free (while I waited in my case) and it is a great experience as well. If you don't live nearby I think they still do the adjustments for free and you only pay for shipping. Just a thought.
