The Ping G25 Fairway has been designed to offer higher ball speeds, higher launches and higher levels of forgiveness.
The large, low profile head design features a new matt black finish that looks more like the i20 fairway than the G20 fairway. Beyond the new finish, everything to do with the G25 fairway is engineered to get the ball in the air easier, quicker and longer.
The G25 features the thinnest face that Ping have ever put in a fairway wood. By using an extreme variable-thickness face, Ping's R&D team were able to trim weight from the face and place it lower and further back in the club.
Combine this with an external sole weight and naturally the club's CG moves lower and further back as well, increasing the club's forgiveness, especially on shots struck on the lower portion of the face (an area Ping claims is the most common 'miss-hit').
Although the new finish makes the G25 look more like the newer i20 or Anser fairway woods, it is designed to offer 'G' level forgiveness and launch characteristics, and will add 0.5 to 1mph faster ball speed, than the previous G20 fairway, thanks to the new face design and centre of gravity location.
