Ping G25 Driver
When Ping launched the G20 driver in 2011, it was proven to be one of the most forgiving drivers on the market. The new Ping G25 driver continues that trend. It is the largest-profile, most forgiving driver Ping have made and now features Ping's modern matt black finish.
Along with the new look, the G25 brings adjustability to the 'G' range. Using Ping's lightweight, aerodynamic adjustable-hosel players can optimise their own launch conditions using the Trajectory Tuning Technology. Players can add or subtract half a degree of loft to the four different lofted heads: 8.5, 9.5, 10.5 or 12 degrees.
Ping were cautious entering into the adjustable market, wanting to design a driver and specifically a hosel that wouldn't adversely impact performance or appearance. The hosel design they settled on has the same mass and diameter as past 'fixed' hosels, making the transition to adjustability as seamless as possible.
The Ping G25 driver has a 460cc head with a larger profile design. The ultra-thin-crown and aerodynamic design redistributes weight along the perimeter of the clubhead, moving the CG (centre of gravity) farther back and lower than any previous Ping driver. This new CG position increases the clubs MOI (moment of interia) and makes it extremely forgiving.
With its performance-engineered adjustable hosel, the Ping G25 Driver's hosel design is optimized by using a lightweight titanium screw and aluminum hosel sleeve. The design maintains the same outer diameter and mass as Ping's traditional fixed hosels. This provides the benefits of adjustability (+/- 1/2 degree) without sacrificing the performance that's often lost in clubs with larger, bulkier hosel designs.
Ping engineers made structural reinforcements to the crown, sole and skirt in order to offer the G25 a solid feel and sound. Variable thickness behind the face powerfully transfers the energy of a players swing into the ball, producing fast ball speeds leading to greater distances off the tee.
Ping have developed the innovative TFC 189D shaft specifically for the G25 driver. This lightweight, high-balance point shaft has a new non-glare, charcoal finish to help eliminate reflections, improve alignment and inspire confidence at address.
