I just bought the G410 LST in July.  This news is kind of frustrating to me.  I feel like Ping has always been a bit slower with their roll outs.  Kind of makes me think I'm missing out on some great new tech.

If you were properly fitted for your G410 there is a good chance the G425 would perform nearly identical if it fits your swing the same. The year over year gains are very small. You are not missing out really, of course that never stopped me from looking at new clubs months after buying some.

I like this release.  The upgrade shaft lineup coming in strong with the Tensei Pro Orange and a Fuji Speeder!  Plus it looks like Ping figured out a way for a slightly larger bump in MOI. Max driver at 460cc and LST at 445cc.

Those shafts may be Japan only. The shaft list is different for Australia for example: https://www.golfbox.com.au/clubs/ping-g425-max-driver/

On a different topic, I'm glad this Ping G425 Max has an adjustable weight. This Sim Max I have is a bomber but is very right biased. I thought it was me, but there are two many folks on WRX that are hitting off the planet balls to the right with the Sim and Sim Max.

Good catch.  I'm guessing we'll end up with the same choices as the Aussies.  Would be nice to have Japan's choices though.

It's one of the only things other than snowboard models that us Aussies get before the US.

 

I remember a weird conversation helping a friend choose their first snowboard last year. "The 2019 is last year's model... I know it's 2019 now. The 2020 is this year's model."

Ping has kind of been trending toward aerodynamics akin to the Taylormade SIM and Cobra for some time. I see that a lot more in this series of drivers based on the images released so far. I'm curious to see what Ping will say in their marketing materials surrounding this, and if there's really as much to it as it appears at first glance. 

I'm not suggesting that Ping is trying to copy anyone - they've had a weight ports located at the back of their club heads for a long time and since the release of G400 there's been a slight change in the shape of the sole that shares some similarities with other designs currently on the market. Ping being a lot more consistent with their designs from year-to-year, it makes me wonder if they've been onto this for a while and were concerned about consumer acceptance of designs like M6, SIM, Speedback, and Speedzone.

Ping does always take measured approach that is for sure. The sole of the Ping is tending a bit like the TM or Cobra, though in a more subtle way. It make sense though as they have been putting tabulators, dragon fly, and the dots on the head all in the name of aerodynamics for a long time now, so looking at the aerodynamics on the sole seems like a logical next step.

That's what I see when I look at it. Wondering if they did some prototype testing years ago, but were afraid the aesthetics of such a design would turn people off and so have taken a much more subtle approach, or if it's just an evolution of independent discovery and learning from what other companies are doing.

Could be, the aerodynamic principals are the same, but yes maybe they all have found (or copied, designs are rarely truly new) a way to take advantage of those principals more in a design that players are comfortable with.

Looking alot like a rebadged G410 but with the incremental shrinking in overall size and added MOI, much like the G400 to the G410.  Not really clear what PING is aiming for here??  Presuming this comes in a power loft spec option, teetering on a PD entry?  Based on how the G410's faired in the MGS 2020 Most Wanted GI Irons test, I would be surprised if they move the needle much.  I like the look however.

I want to see what's behind the cavity above PING, if it's a solid piece where the 425 is that goes across the back, then I'm much more interested. But if it's a cavity--which I'm afraid it is, then I may not be as excited.  As you said, that's very much the G410 style, and I think that is one of the issues that created the sound in the G410 that I wasn't crazy about. 

So it's a wait and see I guess!

Also, do they fill it with magic goo?  Honestly, doing so seems counter to the whole insert face/hollow cavity which purportedly provides a trampoline effect. It would seem almost any filler material would counteract the effect and is more for sound than anything else... but I could be wrong.
