Ping G425 Vs. Ping G400 Driver Comparison Overview
The Ping G425 and the Titleist TSR2 drivers are already drawing a lot of parallel comparisons from golf patrons because of the similar list of features and appointments.
However, the Titleist TSR2 drivers are newer so not everyone has had a chance to hit the range with them.
If you are in the market for a new driver and can’t decide between the tried and true Ping G425 and the new Titleist TSR2, the following comparison article is for you.
Take a look at what we found when we tested them at the range side-by-side.
Ping G425 Driver Overview
“The Ping G425 driver has long been a favorite among pros and amateurs alike because of its versatility and proven track record for distance.”
The Ping G425 features a sliding track weight that allows you to tune the CG to the draw, neutral or fade positions.
The internal dragonfly ribbing system helps to reduce weight so that the sliding weight can be a whopping 26 grams.
The Ping G425 is a distance machine. Our moderate swing speed (85-91 MPH) testers were able to knock 282 yards out of the Ping G425 after just a couple of swings.
The G425 also features a forged titanium face insert which helps with flex, rebound and overall feel. This is a lightweight driver that will help you get max distance no matter what your swing style is.
Titleist TSR2 Driver Overview
“The Titleist TSR2 also features a titanium face; but instead of a moving weight, you get a fixed weight.”
The fixed weight is set low and forward in the head resulting in high launch with limited spin.
With the Titleist TSR2, the same moderate swing speed testers in our group were able to reach a max distance of 288 yards.
Most of them attributed the increase in distance over the Ping G425 to less perceived drag on the downswing.
And when checked with a launch monitor, we found that the Titleist TSR2 driver did indeed yield faster club head speeds than the Ping G425.
Our testers also noted that the Titleist TSR2 felt more forgiving across the face.
“From our testing at least, it would seem that the Titleist TSR2 has more to offer both high and low handicap players. While the Titleist TSR2 isn’t as versatile as the Ping G425 driver; it yields more distance and better flight dynamics.”
