Mizuno Pro 245 Vs Ping i525 Irons
Today we take a look at a couple of player’s distance irons from Ping and Mizuno.
Mizuno Pro 245 Irons Overview
“The Mizuno Pro 245 irons are grain flow forged, have a soft copper underlay and hollow-body design.”
They have the look of blades without actually being blades which is a bonus.
The hollow-body design really helps improve distance but the spin rates stay high on flush shots which increases stopping power.
The chromoly face is also very responsive and delivers a buttery feel on impact. The Mizuno Pro 245s cost $1400.
Ping i525 Irons Overview
“The i525s feature a forged maraging steel face, perimeter weighting and polymer injection.”
The i525s have slightly more offset than the Pro 245s and the profile is a bit bigger as well.
But they still look sleek while being confidence-inspiring at the same time.
The i525 irons also have slightly weaker lofts so I was getting higher launch which was inhibiting my distance a bit.
The Ping i525s typically retail for about $1000.
“I got more distance out of the Mizuno Pro 245 irons with comparable stopping power to the Ping i525s. That’s why I say the Mizuno Pro 245s are better overall player’s distance irons.”
