Ping G425 Vs Titleist T400 Irons Comparison And Review

Titleist and Ping are well known for making irons that suit better players but in recent years they have also started catering to high handicappers and even beginners.

The Ping G425 are long, high launching and forgiving but also workable for the better players.

The T400’s are chunky game improvement irons focussed exclusively on distance and forgiveness.

Ping G425 Overview

Truth be told, the G425 offer a very similar level of performance as the G410’s that came before them but the heads are smaller and more compact which will suit high to mid handicap players.

The soles are thick on the irons and the lofts are forgiving which results in high and long shots.

There is tungsten weighting in the heel and toe, the toe weighting is a visible screw.

The is also a hinge at the heel which allows more flex and forgiveness in the face.

The ultra metal wood face produces stunning balls speeds and the multi material badge on the back will dampen any vibrations on mishits.

Titleist T400 Irons Overview

There is no getting away from the chunky heads of the T400 irons.

They are certainly built with distance in mind and not much in the way of control and workability.

The heads do get progressively smaller as you make you way to the shorter irons however and you can add some spin when closer to the greens.

100gs on Tungsten weighting expands the sweet spot and the L shaped forged face ensures launch and distance for strikes low on the face.

The irons can feel a bit like hybrids with their chunkiness and the performance is similar, long, straight, high and consistent.

If you are seriously looking to take your game from high to mid handicap and beyond, you are looking at going with the Ping G425’s

If you are a beginner or struggle with your irons, the T400’s will give you the distance and accuracy you are looking for.

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.

Titleist T400- First Impressions

The first thing to notice about the T400’s is how chunky the heads of the clubs are.

At address you can tell that they are going to be long and forgiving, they almost look like a hybrid they are so chunky.

Added to that, they have strong lofts that ensure distance as well as forgiving are high on the list of benefits offered by the clubs.

The clubs are progressively sized so as you get to the shorter irons, they are less chunky and more workable.

The split sole system ensures a quality turf interaction and high launching shots while the ball seems to spring off the ultra thin, forged steel face which is also L shaped to ensure higher shots off the lower part of the face.

The clubs are offset so if you do tend to slice the ball they will also be a good fit.

100g’s of Tungsten weighting expands the perimeter of the sweet spot and as you  approach the ball it is obvious that they clubs are long and consistent.

Overall first impressions, this is an excellent set for anyone who struggles to hit their irons consistently or any beginners looking for more distance from their irons.
