PXG 0211 Vs. Ping G425 Hybrid Comparison Overview

PXG and Ping are two companies whose clubs we love to test because of the premium appointments they usually include. We were not let down when it came time to test and compare the Ping G425 hybrid against the PXG 0211 hybrid.

While neither of these hybrids will be particularly great for beginners, we think that mid handicappers will really benefit from either of these clubs. But which club was better overall? Find out in the following comparison article.

PXG 0211 Hybrid Overview

The PXG 0211 is exactly what a hybrid should be: forgiving and long.

For players with moderate to fast swing speeds, the PXG 0211 hybrid will fit like a glove. It perfectly bridges the gap between your fairway woods and your irons with it’s fairway wood-like look at address and it’s squared face.

The squared face creates a large sweet spot (forgiving) while the front-oriented weight port lowers spin on full swings (long). That being said, you need a pretty decent swing speed to get adequate distance and accurate gapping from this club.

The weight port can also be adjusted a bit of you need higher launch on a shot as opposed to lower spin. The multi-material crown (steel on the sides and carbon fiber in the middle) help to increase lateral stiffness while at the same time, allowing the sweet spot to flex.

Ping G425 Hybrid Overview

The Ping G425 also has the look of a fairway wood at address but the maraging steel face gives it the workability of an iron.

The Ping G425 hybrid represents an excellent combination of forgiveness and spin control. The face wrap system expands the flex points around the perimeter of the face and the multi-point face curvature allows you to control spin to a high degree and work the ball as you please.

The G425 hybrid launches higher than the PXG 0211 so just be aware of that. Our testers were also more successful at landing GIR’s from 150+ yards out with the Ping G425 hybrid than they were with the PXG 0211 hybrid.

These two hybrids were so similar when it came to distance and forgiveness. Both would be great assets if you’re trying to replace pesky long irons. However, if you want to stick more greens from further out, the Ping G425 hybrid would be our recommendation. While these hybrids are similar in most regards, the G425 outshines the PXG 0211 when it comes to spin control, accuracy and scoring.

The Ping G425 hybrid clubs will help mid and low handicap players reach the pin from a variety of lies.

PXG 0211 Hybrid First Impressions

At first we didn’t know what to make of the squared face of these hybrids.

They looked odd but once we started swinging, we could tell why PXG decided on that face shape. These hybrids are as forgiving as rescue clubs should be.

While they are lacking in solid feel and satisfying sound, their distance and versatility will win over a lot of different types of golfers.

The PXG O211 Hybrid Family

Along with the standard 0211 hybrids, PXG also produces the 0211 Z hybrids. Like the standard 0211’s the Z’s have squared faces but this time, it’s even bigger.

That means that the 0211 Z hybrids are even more forgiving than the PXG 0211 standard hybrids.

Ping G425 Hybrid First Impressions

The Ping G425 will impress you with the way it looks right away.

The sleek, matte black design of the head begs to be swung. You come for the looks; but you’ll stay for the feel of the maraging steel face. The Ping G425 is available in 2h-7h.

The Ping G425 hybrid clubs can also be adjusted at the hosel for lie and loft so it’s pretty versatile overall.

The G Hybrid Family

You can also pick up the Ping G410 hybrid which allows for a wide range of loft and lie adjustability thanks to the TrajectoryTuning hosel. It’s also a bit more forgiving than the G425.

Like the Ping G425 hybrid, the Ping G410 hybrid clubs feature tungsten rear weights. However, it places a higher emphasis on perimeter weighting which again, makes them a bit more forgiving than the Ping G425 hybrids. They are available in 2H-6H.

Who is the Ping G425 Hybrid for?

The Ping G425 would be best used by advanced players who are able to hit the green from nearly anywhere on the fairway.

What we really liked about the Ping G425 hybrid clubs was the consistent spin control. If you are able, you can decrease spin on longer approaches and increase on shorter approaches.

If you are looking for some hybrids that will help you reach the pin faster then the Ping G425’s would be a great fit for you.

That all being said, the Ping G425 hybrid is certainly not the most forgiving hybrid club out there.

It would certainly help to practice a bit of honest discernment before you commit to buying the Ping G425 Hybrid as it will surely cause some frustration if you are still floundering in the high handicap range.
