The Ping G25 hybrid features a new dark, non-glare finish and is designed to produce optimum trajectory and distance.
The new look G-range hybrid has a progressive CG (centre of gravity) position throughout the 6-loft options. The CG is lower and farther back in the stronger lofted models and slightly forward in the higher lofts.
An external sole weight keeps the weight of the club low and back, elevating the MOI to provide greater forgiveness and longer shots. Along with the upgrading weighting, the G25 hybrid has a generous camber heel-to-toe relief that adds to the playability and ensures solid contact from a variety of lies.
The large hitting surface on the G25 hybrid combines with a thin clubface, producing higher ball speeds and creating forgiveness across the face. A squared-up toe and heel improves the look of the G25 at address, and added to the new dark finish creates a look that is easy to align and improves confidence.

The Ping G25 hybrid breaks the mould of recent G hybrids because gone are the driving iron looks. We accept that the previous style was not much of a looker, but the G15 and G20 hybrids were excellent clubs that were easy to hit with a solid mid to high flight. The Ping G25 hybrid reverts to a more wood style head and looks spookily similar to the Ping Anser hybrid, which is not a bad thing.
Firstly the look at address of the G25 hybrid is much better. We miss the quirkiness of the G20 look, but the G25 is much easier on the eye and the matt black finish looks classy.
Like the Anser, the G25 hybrid features a generous face that is a little more square in shape to widen the hitting area in the heel and toe. Right across the face, the G25 is very forgiving and feels excellent.
The forgiveness is such that it is quite hard to shape the ball left and right. The G25 just loves to go straight and the flight was a little lower than the G20 hybrid with a much stronger, more penetrating trajectory.
The head of the G25 is fractionally longer and deeper back to front than the Anser hybrid and the sole weight is blended in a little more. However apart from that and the cheaper price it is very hard to separate them apart from the price. The Anser hybrid is excellent and for us the G25 hybrid is just as good for less money and definitely the pick of the G25 woods.
The Ping G25 hybrid was a joy to hit and whilst it is aimed at mid handicappers, the performance and flight would also suit everyone down to low single figure players too. A great club.
