Ping g25 vs g30

Progressive length

If you examine the specifications sheet above for irons it will probably be interesting to see an unusual number for both length and loft columns. Instead of standard 3/4′′ averaging for an iron, Ping has chosen longer 5/8 inch progressions – similar to their Karsten iron. Some people would consider gaps between buildings equally unstandard.

It is strange. If you remove the numbers on the soles of the clubs the weight of the G31 – iron is almost identical to Ping’s Eye2 – This is no new PING product. Naturally, 6 irons on Eye 2 set could be classified today as 8 irons and there you go.

Seriously… Distance matters

As you probably know, ping created these strange progressions for some purpose. Specifically, longer iron and middle iron are designed with a longer slit and the gapped edges are a little less noticeable. The majority of people aren’t really interested in the new wedge and therefore have to leave it out of their performance. They squeezed 3 yards on average from the 8 iron and 4 yards on the four iron, again on average. The loft is strengthening but it is proving to be very proud that both irons have increased the average max height.

An i-Series Sole on a G-Series iron

Among the major design changes is a 2 degree increase in the g30’s heel. PING borrowed much of the G30s sole design from the Iron i20 or Iron i25. The new model claims to be highly effective in every attack position, enabling greater playability. The only significant difference in the shoe of the G30 compared to the I25 is that it has a wider trail. The sole itself is nothing involving turf interactions. The increased width allows more room for weight… oh yeah, down and back.

Control, forgiveness and distance where it matters

Unsupported faces are gaining popularity with distance iron designs with higher deflectibility as well as faster balls. A completely unshielded face has the negative effect of reducing dispersion. They fly longer. It doesn’t seem like a trade-off ping would prefer. The GP30 aimed to achieve the desired bending of the face, which gave a stronger grip on the pin and gave it more distance to the pin.

Specifications, Pricing and availability

PING’s G30 iron is expected on sale at golf stores between August 30 & early August. Retail prices are $110 per piece of steel and $225 per piece of graphite.

What is the difference between Ping G25 and G30?

The GP 25 driver had 105.56 mph / clubhead but with the GP 30 driver a cruising rate was 106.4 mph. …… Another big change to the G30 driver from the G25 is the trajectory tuning + adjustable valve with twice the loft option.

Are Ping G25 irons forgiving?

It is hard to believe the g 25 is designed specifically for people with low handicaps, but the combination of loads of forgiveness with an amazing sense of flight and good looks makes that possible.

What is the difference between Ping G30 and Ping G?

Despite the smaller size, the Ping G 460 Cc is said to have 6% higher MOI top and bottom (impact locations above and below the sweet spot) and a 1% higher MOI for heel and foot.
