Rumor has it Pings China factory is shut down 

that is true.  got word yesterday from Ping.  There is no time frame for delivery on new orders.  If you can find them in store somewhere buy them and send them back for lie adjustment if you need that done.  Repairs are taking about 2 weeks for turnaround.

That's what they get for exiting the USA and going to China - Boo, Ping.

There's no way Ping is replacing those any time soon. It won't be for another year at the earliest, but probably more like 18 months.

Really like the 425 irons but afraid by the time I get them the new model will be out.

 

Any guarantee you will like the new model (if it arrives) better? 

 

Do you want to have a newest mode on the block, or one that hits the ball well for you?

If your going to get what ever iteration of the G iron they produce, highly doubt that it is going to be much different if at all to the newer one.  The G's change in performance doesn't vary much from one model to the next.  They change more with cosmetics than performance.  I say if you like them, especially the looks, go for it, unless you just want the latest model.  GL.

The delivery delays is a real issue.  An order placed now could take many months to arrive.  That said, I would not wait any longer if you want the G425's.  Get the order in, and let it roll.  There will not be a new G model coming down the pike soon. 

 

And in reality, all G irons are great.  I currently have my G425's at Ping for a little tweak, and in the meantime, I am playing G410 irons.  Still awesome irons, and doesn't matter that they have been replaced by the G425s.  Same will apply to the G425s when they get replaced.
