Golf Equipment

As part of the National Club Golfer 2014 driver test video series, we look at how the Ping G25 and i25 drivers performed.

“Proven reliability for all abilities” 
SRP: £299 Loft: 8.5, 9.5, 10.5 & 12

Stock shaft: Ping TFC 189 
Adjustable? Yes

Player comments  

JW – It has to be up there with the very best. It’s a safe bet. It’s a driver that excels in the hands of 28-handicappers and scratch players alike in my experience.

DM – I like the look of this driver a lot and it is clearly very playable. For me personally, the i25 works better on my good shots when this one can get spinny and I also prefer the acoustics. But the G25 is very kind when you miss the middle.

PC – Good, long and impressive even on my poorer shots – it’s so forgiving. Up there with the best.

Hot: Arguably the most forgiving driver you’ll see this year. A confidence builder. 

Not: Some additional stock shaft options would be nice.

“Low spin with high forgiveness”
SRP: £345 Loft: 8.5, 9.5 & 10.5
Stock shaft: Ping PWR 55, 65 & 75 
Adjustable? Yes

Player comments

DM – I love the looks and it feels more lively and forgiving than its predecessor, the i20. It certainly spins less than Ping’s G25 for me.

JW – The G works better for me but I like this head more.
Hot: Ping have nailed this – it’s a driver that will appeal to the better player without being hard to use

Not: Some may think it looks a little low key
