Ping G25 Vs Ping G30 Irons Comparison Overview 

Playing your best round of golf is more about using the clubs that suit your game best than it is about spending the most money.

If you have been coveting a set of Ping irons but have been warded off by the price of some of the newer models, maybe you should look at some of their tried and true lines.

The “G” series of irons from Ping is coveted because most of the entries into the series have become synonymous with superior all-around performance. Most of the G irons that we have tested have been beneficial to mid, low and high handicap players. Such is the case with the Ping G30 and Ping G25 irons. But which one is better overall? Let’s discuss it.

Ping G25 Irons

“By far, the best feature of the Ping G25 is their progressive design.”

This is what makes them so appealing to a wide variety of players. The Ping G25 set starts out with pronounced offset, chunky soles and large head profiles. When you get to the 7-iron, you will notice that the offset is reduced and the CG is shifted a bit higher.

This is to optimize both long and short game performance. The long irons in this set fly straight while the smaller irons are more workable. The Ping G25 irons also feature the Custom Tuning Port which imparts a smoother feel and helps drive the CG downward.

The loft profile of the Ping G25 irons is identical to the Ping G30 irons. Both sets produce towering launch.

Ping G30 Irons Overview

“The Ping G30’s are very similar to the G25’s in almost every way.”

But when you take a look at them side-by-side, you will notice that the Custom Tuning Port of the Ping G30 irons have been shrunk down a bit. It has a lower profile but stretches out further towards the heel and toe.

Overall, this gives the Ping G30 a more stable feel. The cavity in the toe area is also bigger than in the Ping G25 irons which helps increase MOI. The Ping G30’s fly just a bit higher and look a bit better behind the ball as well.

“Both of these are solid game improvement sets. However, we liked the Ping G30 irons a bit more because they make slight improvements over the Ping G25’s in almost every department: they fly higher, look better and provide a bit more forgiveness.”

Ping G25 First Impressions

“You can’t help but notice how beautiful these irons look both in the bag and over the ball.”

We were taken with the look of these irons right away. The Graphite finish in tandem with the narrower soles, thinner topline and smaller head profile give these irons a gorgeously premium look.

The cavity isn’t super deep and the Custom Tuning Port has been shrunk to impart a sleeker overall profile.

We were also impressed with the performance. The Ping G25’s launch high and offer good forgiveness.

They aren’t the longest irons Ping produces; but they make up for it by playing well in tight lies, providing good stopping power and being forgiving enough for high handicappers.

Ping G30 First Impressions

“We were a bit underwhelmed with the design of the Ping G30’s because they looked so much like the previous G25 irons.”

That’s not necessarily a bad thing though. As the old saying goes, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” The Ping G30’s play on virtually the same formula as previous G models but with a more refined look overall.

The lines of the Ping G30 irons look sleeker, the head looks more streamlined and the offset looks more pronounced.

The elastomer badge has a low profile which helps support the CG. Most players will probably take note of the straight and high flight of these irons right away.

Who Are the Ping G25 Irons for?

Ping G25 iron3

The Ping G25’s would be great for any player who wants a near-immediate boost in accuracy.

While the longer irons are tricky to work, they fly straight pretty much no matter where you make impact.

This makes the Ping G25 set a great candidate for mid and high handicappers (to be more specific, we would say players in the range of 15-23).

The Ping G25’s even offer value for single-digit handicappers. They flow through tight lies and offer excellent control around the pin.

The 7-iron in particular is a great replacement if you’re looking to swap out your hard-to-control hybrid.

The Ping G Family of Irons

The irons that succeeded the Ping G25’s were the Ping G30’s.

The G30’s continued the design trajectory of thinner soles, smaller heads and no loss in forgiveness.

In truth, there isn’t a lot that differentiates the Ping G25’s from the G30’s. The biggest difference we discovered is that the G30s produced lower long-game spin.

Who Are the Ping G30 Irons For?

The Ping G30 irons would be a good set for any player in the handicap range of 12 to 23.

They are versatile irons that look pleasing to the eye and offer good all-around performance. They bite onto fast greens really well and play a little bit longer than previous G models.

In fact, if you have been frustrated with the distance of most Ping G irons, you should definitely check out the Ping G30’s.

They produce the least long gamespin of any G series iron we have ever tested and produce the best distance.

The Ping G Family of Irons

The Ping G410 series of irons attempts to pack the same forgiveness into a head smaller than those of the Ping G30 irons.

They are more compact and offer more control around the pin – even as they are a bit less forgiving overall.

Distance: 95/100

Accuracy: 94/100

Forgiveness: 94/100

Feel & Control: 93/100

Overall Score: 94/100
