WYNTK:

Ping had solid winners with the previous G410 and G400 drivers and the new G425 series hopes to continue the great results. As with the previous models the new series has three different versions to serve three different types of golfers.

The G425 MAX is the primary model in the series and will suit most players. It features an extremely high MOI the company says is the highest they have ever achieved. MOI is a measurement of the head’s resistance to twisting when impact is towards the heel or toe making it critical for average swingers who have trouble hitting in the sweet spot every time.

Revisions to the Dragonfly crown configuration allowed engineers to make the sliding weight at the rear of the head even heftier, 26-grams total, which helps adjust ball flight and improve the ’s forgiveness.

The G425 LST (Low Spin Technology) model has a slightly smaller clubhead and meant for use by better players, those with high swing speeds, and uses a 17-gram movable weight. The head is designed to produce lower ball spin, a key to more distance, and testing shows about 200 rpm less than the previous
