Cobra LTDx Vs Ping G425 Hybrids Comparison Overview
Choosing between a Ping and a Cobra golf club is like choosing between a Charger and a Mustang.
You know you are going to get explosive speed from both; but it’s the not so apparent peripheries that end up mattering the most on the course.
Ping and Cobra are both great companies for hybrid clubs but you need to have the most information possible when choosing between the two.
To that end, we went out and tested the Ping G425 and the Cobra LTDx hybrids. Take a look at what we found in the following comparison overview…
Cobra LTDx Hybrid Overview
“Even if you have a blindfold on, you know you have a Cobra club in your hands after just a couple of swings.”
They love to incorporate split weight dynamics in almost all of their clubs and the Cobra LTDx hybrid is no exception. There is a front-positioned weight that puts emphasis on muted spin.
There is also a rear weight to help the player maintain the sweeping motion that is crucial for hybrid clubs.
The result is a high arcing shot with low spin – and almost no effort. We love the way the Cobra LTDx felt on the fairway and in the rough.
And on low-face shots, you still get great launch and ball speeds thanks to the “PWRSHELL” design that essentially wraps the bottom portion of the face into the sole for improved stability.
On average, the Cobra LTDx hybrids produced 8.2 yards more distance than the Ping G425’s. The Cobra LTDx’s are available from 2H to 6H.
Ping G425 Hybrid Overview
“The Ping G425’s come in 2H-7H and bear some very nice forgiveness features.”
For instance, there is the wrap-around face that turns the whole thing into a trampoline. The Ping G425’s flew further on shots near the heel and sole.
They feature a slightly curved face that allows for better launch on low-face shots.
The face is made of maraging steel so even errant shots feel really nice. While not as long as the Cobra LTDx’s on dead-center strikes, the Ping G425’s offer more forgiveness away from the sweet spot.
“The Cobra LTDx perform really well in the rough and are the overall longer hybrids. The Ping G425 hybrids on the other hand were the more forgiving clubs. So the best fit will depend on your particular needs.”
