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.
