Are Ping iron heads heavier than other brands?

I ask because it seems every time I hit a Ping demo iron it seems heavy. For example, I recently hit a Mizuno head on a Modus 105 shaft and it felt noticeably lighter than a Ping G425 head on a Ping AWT shaft. And the Modus shaft was a half inch longer.

Someone should be able to answer this, I’m curious also.

I went to the Golfworks playability table, and the 425 head was 10 grams LIGHTER than the Mizuno. So that doesn’t explain. At least not in the particular heads Golfworks measured. It occurs to me that Ping counter balances their graphite shafts. Do they do that with the steel AWT?  
Also, the Mizuno head was a yellow number fitting head. I thought that indicated 2 degrees up. Could it indicate a lighter head?

I had Mizuno 919 & Ping G710 irons. The Pings do feel heavier, both irons had same shafts.
