Talk some sense into me: PING G20 versus G425 irons


DymnDog

Recommended Posts

I've been playing PING G20's (2011) that I bought used a few years ago. I have no complaints with them. Great set (driver, woods, irons and wedges). They are definitely NOT holding my game back. 

A local guy put up a set of PING G425's (2021) irons for sale and it started me wondering if I should at least get irons newer than 10 years?

I can't find an apples-to-apples comparison of the two sets.

I'm hoping some PING aficionados might help me to 1.) rationalize the purchase and feel good about it, or 2.) snap me out of my fever dream and just keep grinding on the G20's because it's not going to provide a noticeable difference (besides the dopamine high of getting new clubs). 

Thank you!

Newer is always better! JK I say if it ain’t broke don’t fix it unless you’re going to make a serious investment in new gear that’s been fit to you.

At 10 years you are going to find improved tech and design of the head.

regardless it’s important to find a shaft and head combo that works with your swing and doesn’t cause you to fight the club to achieve a desired result.

are the g425 better? Probably but you could find them not to be if the shaft in this set doesn’t feel good to you

Makes sense. The guy offered to meet me at a local range to do some side-by-side comparisons. Seems like a good idea. Thank you.

Good point. Getting fit might be a better thing to do first. Thank you.
