Ping G425 Vs Callaway Epic Speed Drivers Comparison And Review 2021
It’s time to put any bias you have aside. Whether you are a Ping fan or a Callaway fan, you should know which driver performs better overall. Today we are going to be comparing one of the most popular Callaway drivers to one of the most renowned Ping drivers.
We wanted to see which between the Ping G425 and the Callaway Epic Speed offered more distance, forgiveness and accuracy. Take a look at what our testing revealed…
Callaway Epic Speed Driver Overview
The Callaway Epic Speed will help you improve your swing speed but it has a lesser feel than the Ping G425 driver.
We really liked the easy swing speed and distance you get from this driver. Overall, we would say that the footprint and more pronounced offset of this driver would be more congenial to high to mid handicap players.
So yes, it was the more forgiving of these two drivers. It had a solid feel thanks to the Jailbreak bars which stabilize the face both vertically and horizontally; but the Ping G425 is just made of better materials.
There is also one big disadvantage to the Epic Speed when compared to the Ping G425: the Callaway Epic Speed is the only driver in the Epic family to not come with an adjustable weight.
The Ping G425 Driver Overview
The Ping G425 does have an adjustable weight which made it the more versatile and accurate driver.
The sliding rear weight can be positioned for draw, neutral or fade bias so our entire testing team had a great time with this driver. It was more accurate and even had a nicer feel than the Callaway Epic Speed driver.
The Ping G425 features a forged titanium face. While the area of the face that is actually forged is rather limited, the material still gave this driver the superior feel. You aren’t going to get much in the way of forgiveness with the Ping G425; but it also plays longer if you can keep your shots centered.
How much longer? The Ping G425played an average of 10 yards longer than the Callaway Epic Speed driver.
The Ping G425 driver performed better in terms of distance and accuracy.
The only performance factor in which the Epic Speed driver did better than the Ping G425 was forgiveness – so it may be better suited to high handicap players.
