For ClubTest 2021, we tested and reviewed 52 new irons 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 irons. You can find the full list of irons and test results here.
Our take: Before buying irons, you must first start by assessing your own game. What are your weaknesses and how do you fix them? Ping’s G425 irons fit the bill for those looking for higher launch and more distance. “The higher launch was a sight to behold,” one tester said. Sometimes, tech-packed irons sacrifice in sensory categories, but GOLF testers noted their soft feel and sound.
Ping G425 Irons
The details: If the G425 irons perform more like metalwoods, maybe that’s because they’re designed to do just that. To improve speed and height on its G425 irons, Ping took notes from the face design of its successful drivers and fairways. As such, they now use variable face thickness (VFT), which means the face is thinner in certain areas to increase speed. Thanks to weight savings from the face, Ping was able to add extra weight into the hosel and toe sections to foster forgiveness.
