Ping G25 irons vs. the G20 irons
The Ping G25 irons come in 3-iron through 9-iron plus pitching wedge. It helps create a solid impact feel. The sole widths are progressive through the set, wider in the long irons for more forgiveness and assistance with launch angle, less-wide in the short irons for control.
The G25, the sixth installment in Ping's cast stainless steel game-improvement iron line, will feature similar moment of inertia measurements compared to its predecessor, the G20. But the topline, sole width and offset have been refined in each iron within the set to optimize playability.
While the Ping G20 irons maintained a nearly constant sole width of more than an inch, the G25's sole width gets narrower as the irons move from the 3-iron to the pitching wedge. The idea is the wider sole's greater forgiveness and lower center of gravity are more important on the longer irons, while the reduced sole width on the short irons will improve playability.
The other key enhancement on the G25 iron is the repositioning of Ping's trademark elastomer custom tuning port lower behind the face. Designed to improve feel, the port is notched near the sole and aligned directly behind the impact area to help lower the center of gravity and help launch shots higher. The G25's design also employs support bars behind the impact area to improve distance control.
