As a rule, Ping G-Series irons have been geared toward the game-improvement market, designed to be easy to hit and easy to hit high, while i-Series clubs were made for better golfers looking for lower spin and a more boring trajectory. But company officials said that the latest version of the G-Series, the G25s, have been designed to appeal to players in both categories.
“These irons offer all the forgiveness the traditional G-Series target audience wants but also have the look and playability lower handicappers desire, as well,” said Brad Schweigert, director of engineering for Ping. “Our goal was to go after a broader golfing audience.”
Perhaps the most significant attribute of the G25s is the repositioned Custom Tuning Port (CTP), which has been lowered and aligned directly with the impact area. Schweigert said that enabled the equipment maker to lower the Center of Gravity, so that the irons launch shots easier, while allowing it to increase Moment of Inertia (MOI) for better forgiveness by expanding the perimeter weighting.
He added that the support bars in the cavity were made to stabilize the 17-4 stainless-steel face to promote a solid feel and better distance control, while a multi-material cavity badge was included to further enhance sound and feel.
Schweigert pointed out that the G25s also have progressive sole widths, so that the longer irons are higher launching and more forgiving, while the shorter ones provide more playability and control. In an effort to appeal to better players, these clubs boast a thinner top line and moderate offset.
A dark, non-glare matte finish similar to the one used in the G25 driver, fairways metals and hybrid models is employed to eliminate reflections.
