Ping G25 irons

Ping G25 Irons
Category: Game-Improvement Irons
Price: $699, steel; $899, graphite
WE TESTED:
4-SW with CFS steel shaft; 4-SW with TFC189 graphite shaft
KEY TECHNOLOGIES: Support bars stabilize the face and contribute to a solid impact feel. Progressive sole widths and offset shift CG placement throughout the set.

PROS
PLAYABILITY:
Expect high-trajectory shots that want to go straight; very easy to get the ball airborne from a wide variety of lies, even with the longer irons.
ACCURACY/FORGIVENESS: If you’re aimed correctly and make a decent swing, you’ll hit your target; little unwanted sidespin—many testers seem to hit them straight all day; ample help on moderate misses.
DISTANCE CONTROL: Testers speak of predictable yardages across most of the face; you can get a few extra yards out of them when needed; no hot spots or jumpers that fly over the greens.
FEEL: Light but stable through the swing and at impact; plenty of feedback tells you what you need to know.
LOOK: The midsize clubhead leaves little doubt that you’ll make good contact; the gray finish is understated and pleasing; few distractions at address despite a wide sole and big cavity.

CONS
A bit chunky looking for some testers’ taste; the feel isn’t that of a forged iron; not quite as workable as a few testers would like, even given its game-improvement status.

BOTTOM LINE: It’s a Ping -- reliable and forgiving in terms of distance and direction.
