Ping G710 Vs Ping G425 Irons Comparison And Review 2021
The Ping G425 and the Ping G710 irons have some key feature in common but you have to take a closer look to really see what separates these two sets.
Both are in the style of a metal-wood hybrid and on the surface, both are about the same shape.
However, there are some key differences between these two irons that create an ocean of separation. Read on to see what we mean.
Ping G425 Irons Overview
The Ping G425 irons offer a surprising amount of forgiveness in a relatively compact iron shape.
The Ping G425s irons feature Variable Face Thickness which makes them more accurate when hit near the crown or sole.
So right off the bat, they are reasonably forgiving. There is also a cool little top rail undercut that allows the face to hinge even more than normal for irons from Ping.
To take the forgiveness factor a bit further, Ping has also added a tungsten toe screw and tungsten weight in the hosel to increase MOI.
However, if you look down at these irons at point of address, you will notice that the blades are relatively short.
The forgiveness features packed inside a player’s look head is reminiscent of the Ping G410’s – the multi-material rear badge also hearken back to the G410’s.
Ping G710 Irons Overview
The Ping G710’s are made of premium materials that you can feel almost instantly.
The Ping G710 irons feature maraging steel faces. The bodies are made from 17-4 stainless steel which is nice and thin.
As soon as you pick these clubs up, you can feel that they are very light. They maintain a lightness in the hand even though, like the G425’s, they feature tungsten in the toe and heel.
The perimeter weighting, Variable Face Thickness, and 17-4 stainless steel body design are all features that the G710’s and the G425’s share.
They differ in blade length though: the G710’s have slightly longer blades.
The G710’s also sport a black hydropearl finish that enhances turf interaction and performance in wet conditions.
The G425’s also lack the maraging steel face construction of the G710’s.
Both of these iron sets are considerably forgiving but if you are going for more of a player’s look, we strongly suggest checking out the G425’s.
If however you want better feel in a more user-friendly shape, the G710’s would work well for you.
