Ping G425 Vs. Ping G410 Hybrid Comparison Overview
Ping makes some of the most unique hybrids around. So much so that it is often a difficult choice between seemingly similar Ping hybrids. There is a decent amount of feature overlap – particularly between the Ping G425 and G410 hybrids.
In order to demystify the differences and similarities between these two hybrids, we went out and tested them side-by-side. Which hybrid came out on top? Find out in the following comparison article!
Ping G425 Hybrid Overview
The Ping G425 hybrid is one of the most versatile hybrids we have every played.
First of all, it comes in lofts from 17 degrees to 34 degrees so you can pick and choose where you want cover distance in your bag. Secondly, the Ping G425 hybrid has an adjustable loft sleeve that allows you to lose or gain up to 1.5 degrees of loft.
From the deck or even from the tee, this hybrid feels great and provides a lot of workability both up and down and side-to-side. But we were really impressed with how well we were able to shape our shots vertically. This is part of what makes it such a good option off the tee or deck.
The face wraps into the body and is made of maraging steel so it flexes and rebounds incredibly quickly – always a good thing for ball speed.
Ping G410 Hybrid Overview
The Ping G410 hybrid debuted in 2019 which is over two years before the introduction of the G425 hybrid.
And we have to say that those 2+ years make a noticeable difference. The Ping G410 has very similar features as the G425 such as the face wrap design, adjustable hosel and maraging steel face construction.
But it just seemed that the G425 did everything the G410 hybrid did, only better. The G410 was less workable overall and had sort of a bulky head shape.
While some of our testers actually liked the G410 hybrid more and called it more forgiving, most of our lower handicap testers remarked that it’s shot-shaping capability was a bit too much to overlook. The G425 hybrid also provided slightly more distance.
In this case at least, newer is better. In our humble opinion, the Ping G425 hybrid has more to offer mid, low and even high handicappers than the G410 hybrid. At the very least, it’s certainly the more versatile hybrid.
