Taylormade P790 Vs Ping G425 Irons Comparison And Review
Taylormade and Ping are well known to make some of the finest irons in the game today and when you at clubs used by professionals on tour, it is easy to see why.
The P790’s are forged irons filled with a speed foam that give the feel and workability of muscle back irons with the forgiveness more readily available in a game improvement iron.
The Ping G425’s are game improvement irons with a ton of forgiving features but also offering a ton of distance.
Deciding between these two is going to come down to where you game is at right now and your ambitions for the future.
Taylormade P790’s Overview
The P790s represent something new in the market in terms of performance for a forged iron.
They are compact with a thin top line at address but you get a softer and more forgiving feel due to the speed foam inside the club.
Tungsten weighting extends the sweet spot as does the Progressive ICT technology for a very forgiving mid handicap iron.
Where these clubs come into their own is with the workability of the shorter irons where the better players will be able to control the ball a lot more.
These irons are perfect for mid handicappers looking to break into the low handicapper bracket in golf.
Ping G425 Irons Overview
The G425’s from Ping came after a years hiatus where we left waiting for the G410’s successor and the downside is that the performance of the G425’s and G410’s is very much the same.
The performance in terms of distance and forgiveness anyway, but they have fit that extra performance into a smaller, more compact head which looks a lot better at address.
The matching of performance is impressive and the irons are also more workable for players getting towards that mid handicap level.
The soles are thick and with deep undercuts for distance and the clubs are high launching for ‘Towering distance’.
A visible tungsten screw weight in the head and another in the heel stretches the sweet spot, while the visible hing in the heel also offers more flexibility and forgiveness with the metal wood finished thin face generating impressive balls speeds.
For higher handicappers and those looking to become mid handicappers, the G425’s are probably going to be a better choice but if you are a mid handicapper looking to become a lower handicap player, the P790’s are going to be an excellent choice.
