Ping G425 Fairway Woods


Recommended Posts

I picked up the Ping G425 3 wood early this week and I've since played several rounds with it.  Suffice to say it is the longest and straightest Ping fairway wood that I've ever played.  Ping products always seem to go straight so I expected that, but the hot face, and therefore the distance I'm getting, is a pleasant change/surprise (220 carry). 

I love the shallow face as it makes picking the ball off the fairway cleanly a breeze in comparison to deeper face 3 woods I've had previously.  It's worth a try if a shallow face fairway wood is something you prefer.   As I can employ several different Driver swing speeds (full driver, mid-driver, baby driver) I don't hit a fairway wood off the tee very often, so I can't comment on it's performance there.

I agree with your post. Ping g425 fairway woods are great. I have the 3,5,7,9 in my bag. The 7 and 9 woods are easy to hit off the deck. I have trouble with hybrids so I use the 7 and 9 fairway woods. The head sizes agree with me and I am successful making good shots with them. I highly recommend trying these fairway woods.

I concur. Bought a 425LST last week because the Maltby 3 wood I had just spun way too much. Attached is my fitting data. I was hitting several shafts at 1° flat. I ended up going 1° strong but not flat to move the dispersion slightly left.
