Ping G425 Driver Review
Let’s answer the question directly: Did PING preserve the G410 Plus’s adjustability and increase the forgiveness? Yes. It delivers.
My G410 Plus was matched up against the G425 Max, and the G425 Max proved to be more forgiving. G425 Max’s mishits were consistently less frequent due to a stronger launch and higher spin numbers. It means there are fewer distances between your best swings as well as all other shots on the course. The G425 Max is the best-forgiving driver on the market. You want the most consistency from the driver of the G425Max.
The G425 Max has this amazing ability to increase forgiveness while maintaining adjustability. This driver uses the same adapter as the previous one, so you can use all the same shafts in the same eight positions. The loft can be adjusted as high or low as 1.5 degrees. You can place the 26-gram back weight in one of three positions: Fade, Neutral or Draw. The position you choose has an impact on how the ball flies and where the sweet spot is located.
PING offers the largest selection of stock shafts within the G425 Max driver, making it a leading provider of custom fitting. You can choose from three exclusive models: the ALTA CB55Slate, PING Tour or Alta Distanza. PING offers two hot models for players who want a high-end shaft: the Aldila Rogue White 130 MSI (review HERE) and the Mitsubishi TENSEI Av Orange (55.5 and 65 grams).
Ping allowed me to go to October and get fitted for the best shaft length. While I couldn’t hit the G425 as it was classified back then, I did try the G410 heads. The LST9 degree seemed to be the most suitable for me. So when I received the G425 Driver it was the LST model with the same shaft, giving me the club that is best suited to me so that I could give a true evaluation.
The driver was compared to the G410 LST at LSH Auto and Mercedes Benz Stockport with Trackman 4 balls. Reddish Vale Golf Club invited me to give it a try during several rounds.

Review of the Ping G425 Lst driver
Looks and Feel The G425 driver looks amazing! My driver reviews will have shown you that I enjoy a sleek, minimalistic, rectangular head design and matte black. Ping is a great example of all these things.
The turbulators feel softer. They have gone from being silver-grey or slate/black. I find this very classy.
It’s kind of like a throwback back to when Ping Anser Driver was still in use.
The feeling of being at home in the game of golf is something to be proud about. Comfort is felt when I look down at a Ping Club, which looks much like the traditional Ping Golf club.
You can feel it everywhere, including the range sessions on a January night and the opening tee at the US Open. Ping drivers have been with me on almost every tour professional driving. The ultimate fairwayfinder, it was always there for me.
Ping say that you hit the ball further when it lands on the short grass and that is where they focus their technology and R&D. But as someone who considers themselves an accurate driver of the ball, could it also help me start gaining a few more yards?
It sounds like a Ping. It is high pitched and makes a distinct sound that almost everyone can understand. In my view, this is not something that has improved from previous models. The same way they state that “nothing tastes like a Mizuno”, it also sounds nothing like a Ping.

What does this actually mean?
Well, when PING releases new drivers it’s safe to assume that you won’t see a raft of wholesale changes.
PING is in business to make the best drivers, and not to reinvent it.
* PING drivers G425 – First look!
With the G425 line-up, the brand has decided to once again stick to its tried and tested engineering practices by effectively building upon the same brilliant designs and technologies that brought its previous G400 and G410 families such universal acclaim.
The standout piece of tech this time around is undoubtedly the new CG shifter. This massive, moveable tungsten weight – placed at the extreme rear of the sole of the club – results in an equally extreme low and back CG (centre of gravity) placement.
