Ping G425 closer than we think? (In hand Pics Pg. 16)


Recommended Posts

I know it's been mentioned elsewhere that G425 has been trademarked by PING for clubs, headcovers, hats, etc., but it's not too clear when that update is coming. With that said I think it's worth noting that the G410 line is nowhere to be found on the GD hot list for 2020, whereas the iBlade is listed. Could be an indicator that an update to the G lineup could be closer than we think, and an iBlade update may not be?

Happened to be around when the rep was in the shop.  Love the color combo in person.  Saw the hybrids and fw’s as well.  Turbulators are gone in the fw’s I believe.   Amazing how flat the soles are in

You're attempting to connect some rather disparate dots with a theory. You may be right for all I know. But I'll just say this about the GD Hot List: If it were a newspaper and I was a fish, I'd re

We review the current marketplace with a key stipulation: only products still at their full price will be considered.

The Hot List is our review of the best clubs on the market, but you might find a few well-known and well-received products not on the following pages. Those noteworthy clubs include the G410 FAMILY OF WOODS AND IRONS FROM PING, including the G410 Plus, G410 SFT and G410 LST drivers and fairway woods; the G410 hybrid and the G410 game-improvement iron. Also, you won’t see the CLEVELAND RTX-4 WEDGE. Although these clubs are available and all of them earned Gold medals in their respective categories in the 2019 Hot List, they fail to meet one key stipulation for our annual review of the game’s current equipment. Under Hot List rules, only “new” equipment is considered. “New” is not specifically a reference to how long a product has been in the marketplace. In fact, more than a fourth of products on this year’s Hot List also were on last year’s list. However, in the context of the Hot List, “new” means a product’s current price has not been permanently reduced from its introductory price. The Ping G410 clubs and the Cleveland wedge all reduced their price late last year, and thus we removed them from consideration in our Hot List judging. —THE EDITORS

You can put about as much faith in the GD Hotlist as you can in a fart with the flu. Vague descriptions of tools that should be fitted to every individual.

True, not sure why they even bother anymore...I used to look forward to the hot list every year, but it has been worthless for the past 6 or 7 years....there is nothing insightful or unique offered, no testing data shared...

Likely for search engine optimization. "G420" would probably return too many non-golf results. ?

There will be a limited edition G420 released in a matte green with hints of purple accents.

It's not all about distance now-a-days. It's about forgiveness across the face, sound/feel, looks and all around performance. We've been fairly maxed out for quite a while when it comes to gains.

They'll stop bothering when we stop paying attention to it.

The Hot List / Club Test issues are the most popular ones. Whether in print form, or people going to the web site they drive sales/traffic.

It goes back to the old adage of "no such thing as bad publicity".

If you're checking it out just to complain about it, you're still looking and they're getting to put ads in front of you. Posting a complaint about it still gets flagged as being talked about.

Think the better indicator the G425 is coming is the price drop on the entire G410 lineup. Ordered a 5 wood to go w my G410 driver and hybrids. Struck me a little early to be dropping prices for a Ping line but I wasn't monitoring that closely.

They have to do that in order to stay competitive. Other companies are bringing a new lineup of woods now, so if Ping left their products the same, they'd be "lost" in the mix of the shiny new products. New stuff is coming in Fall.

The reps are more tight lipped these days. If there is any knowledge out there, they're not saying. I've heard of reps being fired if any information is traced back to them. Many companies troll site like this one to make sure information they don't want out isn't leaked. All our rep said was to "possibly" look out for the late summer to early fall timeframe for new woods and hybrids. He didn't commit one way or the other. All I wanted to know if the current adapters would work and he wouldn't even tell me that!
