Ping G425 Vs Titleist Tsi2 Drivers Comparison And Review 2021
Neither the Ping G425 or the Titleist Tsi2 drivers will shave strokes off of your score if you are just starting out with golf but that was not their intent. Instead, the respective club manufacturers made these drivers with mid to low handicappers in mind.
There are some key differences that you should know about though, if you are considering picking up either of these drivers. We intend to tell you what those differences are in the following comparison overview.
Ping G425 Driver Overview
The Ping G425 does a nice job of getting you where you want to be on the fairway.
That’s because Ping paired a 3 position sliding weight (fade, neutral and draw) with and adjustable hosel. Intermediate and low handicap players will be able to strategically attack every hole with this tandem of adjustable features.
The face flexes pretty well too. It’s made of a highly resilient titanium alloy and kept in check with Ping’s “Internal Dragonfly” ribbing system which stabilizes the 460CC head. We liked the distance we were getting with this driver – it was about 8 yards longer than the Tsi2 on average.
It was pretty cool that this driver came stock with Arccos Caddie smart grips too. While it’s a bit superfluous, it was nice to be able to get drive data right on our phones.
Titleist Tsi2 Driver Overview
The Titleist Tsi2 driver created distance mostly by keeping spin rates down.
Along with a relatively low spin rate, the Tsi2 driver launched surprisingly high. We were getting good carry distances with this driver but in the end, the Ping G425 was longer. Still this driver had a very satisfying sound when you hit it dead-center.
The face of the Tsi2 is also made of a titanium alloy but overall, it felt a little less stable than the Ping G425 driver. The Tsi2 does not have an adjustable weight but it does have an adjustable hosel so you get decent shot shaping ability out of it.
Overall, we liked the Ping G425 driver more than the Tsi2. While the Tsi2 had a more satisfying feel, you really had to work for it.
The Ping G425 driver played longer and you get an adjustable rear weight so it does a better job of conforming to your play style.
We would recommend the Ping G425 to any player looking for more accuracy from the tee.
