HEAD-TO-HEAD TEST: Ping’s new G425 drivers vs. previous models

Ping has officially launched its G425 drivers and family to the public today after months of stacking up wins on multiple professional tours. The G425 drivers found immediate success as Tyrrell Hatton and Viktor Hovland each captured wins using G425 LST drivers in late 2020.

With so much hype around the new G425 products coming into 2021, we had to put them to the test. Recently, True Spec Golf’s DJ Lantz and GOLF.com’s senior equipment editor Andrew Tursky (that’s me) hit the range at Phoenix Country Club in Arizona with a True Spec Golf mobile fitting unit and a launch monitor to conduct head-to-head testing.

Lantz, a scratch golfer, hit the new G425 Max driver against Ping’s previous G400 Max driver. The new G425 Max driver combines technologies of Ping’s previously released G400 Max and G410 Plus drivers. Thanks to a heavier moveable weight and overall bigger size, Ping reports that its G425 Max driver now has the highest MOI (moment of inertia) of any driver in the company’s history.

For me, as a 2-handicapper who struggles with a hook at times, I hit Ping’s new G425 LST (Low Spin Technology) against the previously released G410 LST driver. As compared to the G425 Max offering, the G425 LST is built for higher speed golfers with its compact 445cc shape and low-spin weight structure. Click here to read more about both of Ping’s new G425 driver options and the new technologies.

For the test, we each hit 3 balls with our respective drivers, and the only variable we changed was the head models. How did the new heads stack up against the old versions? You’ll have to watch the video at the top of the story to find out.

Ping G425 Vs G410 Driver Comparison & Review

Ping G425 Vs G410 Driver Comparison & Review

Ping has developed a reputation for making some of the most forgiving and longest drivers. Many players in the market for a new driver consider Ping for exactly these reasons.

But which Ping driver do you choose? They make a wide variety so how can you decide which is right for you.

If you are considering a Ping driver then you are in luck. While fitting is always the ideal, preliminary research is also important.

To help you decide which Ping driver is right for you, we have put together the following review which compares two of their most popular bruisers.

Ping G410 Key Features

The Ping G410 is a 455CC driver which, helps keep the weight down some.

This allows more leeway for the adjustable weight that’s located in the back of the club that allows you to adjust for draw and fade.

The face is constructed of machine forged titanium which, enhances feel and ball speed.

 

Ping G425 Key Features

 

The Ping G425’s adjustable weight is a bit beefier at 26 grams. It’s also made from tungsten.

The crown is made of thin titanium and is supported in part by the internal dragonfly ribbing pattern.

This helps stabilize the thin crown and the T9S face for better feel and stability.

 

The G410 Family

Ping has also released the G410 LST driver. The LST boasts some key improvements over the standard G410.

For instance, it was developed to produce less spin off the tee.

The G410 LST still maintains high MOI in a slightly more compact head (450CC). It also has a sliding rear weight.

 

The G425 Family

The G425 also got the LST treatment but the changes are a bit more noticeable.

First of all, the G425 LST features a smaller, pear-shaped head design to once again, limit spin.

Secondly, the sliding weight has been dropped down to 17 grams instead of 26. It’s also only available in 9 and 10.5 lofts.

 

G410 Vs. G400

The G410 succeeded the more compact G400 driver.

The G400 sports a 445CC head. It lacks an adjustable weight but still has an adjustable hosel that lets you tune the loft by +/- 1 degree.

Other than that, the G400 and G410 drivers are practically identical with the former being better on spin.

 

G425 Vs. Taylormade SIM 2

The SIM 2 features the Inertia Generator which, is essentially a bottom fin that enhances aerodynamics on your swing.

While it delivers comparable distance to the G425, it lacks the shot shapability and versatility.

However, both drivers feature a milled face architecture which, help to increase ball speed and enhance overall feel.

 

Ping G410 Options

  • PING Alta CB 55 Red shaft
  • PING Tour 65 shaft
  • PING Tour 75 shaft
  • Project X EvenFlow Black 75 shaft
  • Mitsubishi Tensei CK Orange 60 shaft
  • PING Alta Distanza shaft
  • Regular, stiff, extra stiff and soft regular flexes

 

Ping G425 Options

  • PING Alta CB 55 Slate shaft
  • PING Tour 65 shaft
  • Aldila Rogue White 130 MSI 70 shaft
  • Mitsubishi Tensei AV Orange 55 shaft
  • Mitsubishi Tensei AV Orange 65 shaft
  • PING Alta Distanza shaft
  • Soft regular, regular, stiff and extra stiff flexes

 

Who is Each Driver for?

First of all, both the G410 and the G425 drivers are great for anyone looking for increased forgiveness without losing distance.

However, the G425 is certainly more suited for forgiveness than distance with it’s 460CC head.

If accuracy is less of a concern for you, the G410 may be more your style.

 

Performance Comparison

We noted that the G410 was producing less spin off the tee than the G425. This usually resulted in a 4 yard gain.

The internal Dragonfly ribbing system in the G425 though felt more complete. It gave the G425 a more satisfying feel over all.

 

Accuracy & Consistency

The G410 was a bit easier to work even though both feature a moveable weight.

We were able to position the ball a bit more strategically than the G425.

However, both of these drivers produced very consistent shots in terms of distance and trajectory. 

 

Price Comparison

The newer G425 driver costs around $500 these days while the older G410 can be had for around $400.

 

Ping G410 Pros & Cons

Pros:

  • Adjustable weight
  • A bit more workable
  • It’s more affordable than the G425
  • Produces less spin off the tee
  • Adjustable hosel produces 8 different ball flight positions
  • Good club head speed

 

Cons:

  • Doesn’t feel as solid as the G425
  • Lighter sliding weight than the G425
  • Less refined internal dragonfly ribbing system
  • A bit awkward for players with higher swing speeds

 

Overall Score: 94/100

Final Assessment

There’s no doubt that Ping has produced some great drivers over the years. So much so that there seems to be little room for improvement.

This seems to be the case between the G410 and the G425. The G425 simply doesn’t have enough significant improvements to justify the higher price.

While it may be the better choice for players who are looking for maximum forgiveness, it costs $100 more so you better be sure that forgiveness is what your game really needs.

Overall the G410 provides more shot versatility and distance which, is enough to put it over the top for us. It wins our endorsement so check out the Ping G410 driver today!

Ping G425 LST, MAX and SFT Drivers Review

New for 2021, Ping G425 drivers are a three-model family. There's a model targeting ultimate forgiveness, one for stopping a slice, and another for reducing spin. 

Ping G drivers have a very long bloodline. 11 iterations of Ping G siblings can be traced all the way back to 2004, when Ping’s first mass-market titanium driver, the Ping G2 hit the market. As far as driver marquees go, the Ping G is the longest running family currently available, which says heaps about the tons of everyday golfers who’ve taken a Ping G driver to their hearts over the last two decades.

Ping G drivers have been bought by hundreds of thousands of golfers over the years, and for many they’ve always represented the benchmark for forgiveness, dependable performance, and honest design that’s lead by engineering principles, not flashy gimmicks.  

Ping have now revealed the 12th G model, the Ping G425. Every time Ping reduce a new G driver, they make advancements in MOI (moment of inertia), aerodynamics and CG (centre of gravity) position. Here's how they've achieved that in the Ping G425 and improved on the already fantastic Ping G410, while creating three drivers that are more diverse than ever before.

RRP: £450

Ping G425 LST Driver

Ping's lowest spinning driver, now with even less spin than before

Ping have insisted a three driver line-up is best for fitting golfers more accurately since the launch of the Ping G30 in 2014. It gives them a model to suit all types of golfer, each of which can then be tweaked to an even more exacting specification. 

The Ping G425 LST is the lowest spinning model of the three. It has a more pear-shaped 445cc head and features a 17g CG shifting weight. 

Ping say the new head reduces backspin by 200 RPM compared to its predecessor, the Ping G410 LST, and spins 500-700 RPM less than the new Ping G425 Max. It means golfers will see greater separation between the three models than before.

RRP: £450

Lofts: 9° / 10.5° / 12°

Ping G425 MAX Driver

Plus becomes Max

Many golfers thought Ping were late to the movable weight party when they revealed their first driver with a movable CG, the G410 Plus in 2019. But Ping being Ping (essentially they’re a company built on engineering) refused to make a movable weight model until they could include a weight track that had zero compromise on MOI and forgiveness.

The Ping G410 Plus has been replaced by the Ping G425 Max. The G425 Max has a 460cc head that is rounder in shape than the LST model, and thanks to a 26g CG shifter (which is 10g more than the G410 Plus) you get 7% more MOI forgiveness than you did from the Ping G410 Plus.

Ping G425 MAX Driver

The Ping G425 Max also enables golfers to add 20% more draw bias or 16% more fade bias than the previous model, to help really dial in your preferred shot shape.        

Thanks to the updates, if like many golfers your favourite recent G driver is still the G400 Max, Ping say the G425 Max boasts more forgiveness than this MOI monster. Incredibly this great looking driver nudges the 10,000 (g-in2) MOI barrier, which was the level Nike needed a square head to tip (the SQ-Sasquatch) back in 2008. It simple terms, it makes it incredibly stable, which helps you keep the head square at impact.

What you need to know about the Ping G425 SFT driver

RRP: £450

Lofts: 10.5°

Ping G425 SFT Driver

Ping's slice buster

Slicers have Ping to thank for making slice-busting drivers part of the conversation when it comes to driver fitting. Before the G30, anti-slice drivers were often an after-thought or outlying models that instantly branded you a hacker. Ping have changed all that though, and the new G425 SFT does more to correct a slice than any Ping driver before it.

The 460cc head has a 23g fixed heel weight, which means golfers get 10 yards more left bias than the previous G410 SFT and 25+ yards more than the G425 Max. Think of this model as a slice-busting machine, perfect if you can't stop your drives carving off to the right no matter what you try.

Other Key Features in the Ping G425 range

Take your pick of shafts

Ping’s Tour and Alta CB shafts have a great reputation for offering just what club golfers need in a driver and both are stock options in the new G425.

If you feel an after-market model would fit you better, Ping are also offering the Aldila Rogue White 130 M.S.I 70 and Mitsubishi Tensei AV Raw Orange 65 as no upcharge upgrades.

Arccos equipped

Ever since Ping President John K. Solheim gave shot-tracking giants Arccos credit for helping him get down to scratch, the company have realised the benefits shot-tracking information brings to golfers and club developers.

Every club within the G425 line up comes with an Arccos shot tracking sensor in the grip, and a free 90-day Arccos subscription.

Verdict: Ping G425 Max driver

Ping have carved themselves out an enviable position amongst tour and club golfers during the 14-year lifespan of their G Series drivers, as the brand who produce the most forgiving drivers in the game. The reason behind the reputation is their engineers put a premium on placing the centre of gravity lower and deeper than brands who use a slightly higher and more forward CG to chase ball speed and distance at all costs.

The result is that Ping users get more speed protection on off-centre hits, which means less than perfect strikes go further and shots are more likely to end up on the short grass.

Ping G425 Drivers

Unlike most major brands, Ping haven’t yet succumbed to using carbon fibre crowns and sole sections, the majority of the G425 construction is still titanium. They make it super thin and light so it can compete with carbon fibre.

Carbon fibre acts as a dampener, which means you'll notice Ping drivers are a little louder than their TaylorMade or Callaway counterparts. Many golfers love a powerful sound from their driver, while others prefer a more muted hit. It really comes down to personal preference, but most golfers will (quite rightly) pick their driver based on performance over acoustics anyway. 

We love how Ping nudge the bar a little higher with each G driver iteration. On average, golfers upgrade their driver every five years, so not too many golfers are likely to upgrade to the G425 from the most recent Ping G drivers (the G410 and G400, released in 2019 and 2017 respectively). Rather, it will be golfers who are using a Ping G from 2016 or an even older model who will be eyeing the G425, and those golfers will notice a big step fowards in performance. 

Ping G425 Driver Testing

All three G425 drivers sit beautifully behind the ball, and the black, silver, and grey cosmetics create what we think is Ping’s cleanest looking driver for some time. 

Which Ping G425 driver is right for you? 

Before you plump for a low spinning Ping G425 LST, bear in mind that Ping say only 10% of golfers actually need a low spin model.

We reckon the vast majority of club golfers will be much better suited to the slightly bigger, more forgiving Ping G425 MAX model, especially as there’s now more weight to shift into a draw position.

Ping G425 Driver

Everything G425 comes with Arccos shot tracking sensors in the grips and a 3-month trial of the Arccos shot tracking app.

Ping are taking a slightly different approach to shot-tracking other than just being a way to improve. Ping’s brilliant engineering team are right on the cusp of enabling fitters to use the data you create to better understand how you perform on the golf course, rather than just stood in a fitting bay.  

Don't be surprised if the Ping G425 MAX is the biggest selling driver of 2021. It’s honest, powerful and forgiving, and it can of course be fitted to a ton of golfers, just like every G model before it.   

How do the Ping G425 drivers compare in data?

Ping G425 Driver data

Verdict: Ping G425 Max vs G425 LST drivers

If you happen to be a fast speed or high spin player, and Ping say only about 10% of golfers are, then the G425 LST absolutely does what Ping promise, lowering spin by 619 RPM (Ping say to expect a 500-700 RPM spin reduction compared to the MAX) for our test pro.

It’s absolutely no secret that less spin adds distance, but after some serious research Ping took it upon themselves to warn golfers in 2020 not to just chase high launch and low spin on a launch monitor.

Ping-G425-Max-Driver

After taking the time to decipher the data produced from hundreds of thousands of driver fittings over the years, they created an optimal launch angle and spin rate chart for each swing speed and attack angle. If you can achieve the right numbers, you can unlock the maximum driver distance from your swing speed. It's well worth bearing in mind if you're planning to buy a new driver in 2021.    

Verdict: Ping G425 SFT driver

SFT has been an integral part of the Ping G family since the G30 in 2014 and thanks to the extra model separation that Ping have built into the new model this really is a slice-buster.

Ping-G425-Drivers

Thanks to the refinements, plenty of golfers who’ve played SFT in previous models will now slip comfortably into the MAX model with the CG shifting weight in the draw slot. Compared to the G400 SFT, the face sits visibly a little closed, but chronic slicers will appreciate the extra draw enhancing help that delivers.

Ping Drivers Reviews

PING is a family-owned company founded in 1959 in the garage of Karsten Solheim. Karsten's frustration with his putting inspired him to design a putter, which made a "pinging" sound when striking a golf ball. Today, PING is synonymous with innovation, quality and service in the world of golf.

For everyone from beginners to Tour players, the combination of a large, forgiving head, Trajectory Tuning Technology, and a speed-generating shaft makes the adjustable PING G25 driver a sound choice for improving distance and accuracy off the tee. You can add or subtract one-half degree of loft on the standard 8.5°, 9.5°, 10.5° and 12° settings to optimize launch conditions for maximum distance.

The 460cc head on the PING G30 driver will help generate greater clubhead speed and ball velocity for consistently longer drives that find the fairway.

Best Ping Drivers

Ping has delivered some of the game’s most innovative products over the years, across a number of equipment categories. indeed given the success of Tour players, Ping has clearly been creating the best golf drivers on the market for a long time now.

In fact, it’s hard not to become a little misty-eyed looking back: the Anser putter, Eye 2 irons, TiSi driver… the list goes on.

The best Ping drivers? Well, the G2 was a favourite and in more recent times there was the popular G driver – and we were also big admirers of the G400 and G400 Max.

When the G425 Max arrived, we were interested to see how performance had been moved on.

Custom fitting is a core principle of the Ping brand, so when we test the product we’re always keen to stress how important one is in order to get the most of out the technology.

In terms of this best Ping drivers guide, be sure to read our reviews below to find out more about each product.

Alternatively if Ping is not for you, we have also created guides for other brands too – such as the best Cobra drivers, the best Titleist drivers, or the best Callaway drivers.

Ping G425 Max Driver

+ Increased forgiveness and accuracy over G410
+ Better fitting options across three models
– No obvious gains in distance over G410 on centred hits.

To achieve the new performance levels in the G425 Max, Ping has implemented a new 26-gram tungsten movable weight called a CG Shifter, which is made possible by weight savings from advancements in the driver’s dragonfly crown design.

The weight can be secured in one of three settings – neutral, draw or fade – to influence forgiveness and shot shape. The average MOI increase is 14 per cent across the three weight positions compared to the G410 Plus.

Ping G425 SFT Driver

+ Impressive forgiveness levels
+ Perfect for slicers seeking a straighter flight
– Not suitable for golfers with a hook

For slicers of the ball, the SFT head in the G425 range is by far the best option.

SFT stands for Straight Flight Technology and a consistently straighter ball flight is achieved by a fixed weight near the heel of the club for maximum slice correction.

It offers even more draw bias than the G425 Max in its draw setting, which means serial slicers of the ball will definitely want to opt for the SFT head.

The rest of the club performs the same as the G425 Plus which we loved when we reviewed it earlier this year.

The whole G425 range comes with an Arccos sensor embedded in the grip, creating a very competitive package for 2021.

Given all this technology we also included it in our guide on the best golf drivers for seniors and best high handicap drivers.

Ping G425 LST Driver

+ Low spin ideal for faster swingers
+ Provides more workability
– Smaller size means it lacks forgiveness versus the other models

The G425 LST model has a more pear-shaped head that the standard Ping G425 Max driver and measures 445cc to deliver spin reductions of approximately 200 rpm compared to the G410 LST and 500-700 rpm versus the G425 Max. It employs a 17-gram CG shifter in the same three settings to fit the launch conditions best suited to the golfer’s swing and desired ball flight.

We found it offered around 300 rpm than the Max model, which did contribute to extra carry distance while maintaining a good level of forgiveness despite its smaller size.

It’s a club you can really dial in to provide the launch conditions and shot shape you want to see, especially when you consider the wide shaft choices available.

Those golfers with fast swing speeds should definitely mark this down as one to try.

Ping G Le2 Driver

+ Lightweight for faster swing speeds
+ Excellent and effective adjustability
– Striking looks may not be to everyones taste

This is the second generation of the women’s G Le range and with custom fitting being a core principle of the Ping brand, there are more fitting options in the latest edition to allow players to dial-in for an optimum fit.

It features an adjustable, eight-position hosel to alter the loft – plus there are three different settings for the lie of the club.

The light titanium clubhead is designed to promote faster clubhead speed, whilst the Internal heel-biased weighting helps with right-to-left spin for straighter ball flights. 

Meanwhile, a thin, forged face increases flexing for ball velocity and improved launch conditions.

And at this time Rita continued to fuck her. and then she climbed on top of Vika, lay down on her and began to lick her ear, neck. You could hear how their breathing quickened, that they drove each other a little. but at the same time they looked happy.

Now discussing:

I just wanted her to like it. Is it really necessary to shoot whores for the experience. - the young man said uncertainly. Why. I can help.
