Cobra Radspeed Vs Ping G425 Comparison And Review

Two of the most anticipated Irons of 2021. Cobra have shot to promnince recently by sponsoring golf mega star Bryson Dechambeau while Ping have always been well know as one of the very best golf brands on the market.

Cobra Radspeed Overview

The Cobra Radpseed are available in one length format or in the standard progressive sizes.

The weighting differs slightly depending on where length set you go with but contain a screw weight in the toe and radial weighting in the heel.

These clubs are made for distance with the forged face insert and the wide soles which offer better turf interaction for the better players.

The club face is thin and flexible for forgiveness and the 3D printed medallion holds everything together nicely and dampens unwanted vibrations.

Ping G425 Irons Overview

With no new releases in 2020, the Ping G425’s have been highly anticipated in the golfing world and they don’t disappoint.

The clubs have more compact heads then the G410’s which were their predecessors and the wide soles allow for plenty of ball speed.

Generous lofts, a screw weight in the toe and one in the heel keep the CG low and the MOI high in this irons, complimented but the variable face thickness which makes the clubs forgiving on off center hits.

There is also a hing on the back for more flexibility.

Overall these irons are going to be great for mid handicappers looking for distance and some forgiveness with some workability too.

Hard to pick one over the other but we just slightly favor the consistency of the G425’s.

Cobra Radspeed – First Impressions

The first thing to notice about the irons is that they have the chunky sole of a game improvement iron and the strong lofts are made for ball speed and distance

The 10g screw weight in the toe of the club also jumps out to use and it is complemented by a matching weight in the heel of the club for the perfect CG and a high MOI,

As soon as you start striking these irons, you notice the power and consistency in the clubs, when you catch a hold of the large grips and start letting some shots rip.

That is for good reason, they are crafted with AI for perfect weight placement and the 3D printed medallion on the back improves stability and reduces vibrations.

The thin flexible face offers a ton of forgiveness and ball speed and these irons also have plenty of turf interaction for the better players.

Ping G425 Irons – First Impressions

After taking 2020 off, the G425 Irons are a much anticipated upgrade to the G410’s and the first thing you notice with these irons is that the heads are smaller and more compact.

The irons incorporate two weights, a visible screw at the front of the clubhead and a weight in the hosel. This, coupled with the wide and cascading sole allows a quality ball launch angle.

Ping have gone for the metal wood style material for the first time in a set of irons and the variable face thickness allows for a lot of forgiveness and ball speed on any strike, even when you hit the ball off center.

They also have a multi material badge filling in the cavity at the back to dampen any vibrations on mishits.

The irons have a slight bit of offset for forgiveness but you are going to get plenty of feel from these especially from Irons you would classify as game improvement.
