Ping G425 FW

ClubTest 2021: Ping G425 fairway woods

Courtesy of Ping

For ClubTest 2021, we tested and reviewed 19 new fairway woods to help you find the right one for your game. (For more on our testing process, click here.) Below are the results for the Ping G425 fairway wood. You can find the full list of fairway woods and test results here.

Ping G425

G425 Max: 14.5°, 17.5°, 20.5°, 23°; G425 LST: 14.5°; G425 SFT: 16°, 19°, 22°

Our take: This year, Ping loses its familiar Turbulators from the crowns of its fairway woods and hybrids, replacing them with three alignment dots. How did our testers like the new look? “This alignment aid is so much better,” one tester declared. Testers also found that the low-profile designs made getting the ball in the air much easier than with other clubs.

PING G425 Max Fairway Wood

$299
OUR TAKE: This year, Ping removed its familiar Turbulators from the crowns of its fairway woods and hybrids, replacing them with 3 alignment dots instead. How did our testers like the new look? “This alignment aid is so much better,” one tester declared. And he wasn’t alone. “I love the clean crown because it’s not too busy,” another added. Testers also found that the low profile designs made getting the ball in the air easier, even off low-cut grass.   THE DETAILS:  Fittingly called Facewrap technology, the new G425 fairway faces now wrap around the crowns and soles to provide more ball speed and launch. That’s why the Turbulators aren’t on the new G425 models, and why our testers found them easier to hit from the turf. Ping also increased curvature on the faces to especially help with shots hit low on the face. For golfers with differing needs, such as lower spin or draw-bias, Ping placed Tungsten weights in strategic spots on the soles of the three new G425 fairway options.  Check out 150+ reviews from our gear experts in the ClubTest 2021 collection

The details: Fittingly called Facewrap technology, the new face now wraps around the crown and sole to provide more ball speed and launch. Ping also increased curvature on the face to especially help with the low miss. For golfers with differing needs, such as lower spin or draw-bias, Ping placed tungsten weights in strategic spots on the soles of the three options.
