Ping Regular Driver Review: G30 & G25 driver
In 2014, Ping introduced a driver that strays from the norm and the G30 brings a lot to the table: adjustability, technology, looks, and high performance shaft options. I was a little surprised when I got my first in-person glance at the ping g30 driver 10.5 regular.
The G30 driver has a 460cc head, new T9S face material that offers a thin, lightweight material to optimize ball speeds across the face. This driver combines with the matte black finish give the driver an industrial look. The G30 has put me back to were I was when I left the game, 220 to 260 and either on the fairway or just off most of time. Even most of the bad swings now leave me in a better position.
Both the G25 and G30 feel similar. Working with a retired PGA tour pro turned part time instructor so game is getting better and the Ping G30 driver has really helped! The design maintains the same outer diameter and mass as Ping’s traditional fixed hosels. This provides the benefits of adjustability (+/- 1/2 degree) without sacrificing the performance that’s often lost in clubs with larger, bulkier hosel designs.
Ping engineers made structural reinforcements to the crown, sole and skirt in order to offer the ping g25 driver 9.5 regular a solid feel and sound. Variable thickness behind the face powerfully transfers the energy of a players swing into the ball, producing fast ball speeds leading to greater distances off the tee.
Based off only numbers, it is easy to tell that the G30 out-performed the G25 for me. Before testing, I was unsure about the golf clubs for sale, but I don’t believe my assumptions were on point. Both drivers have similar weight shafts and swing weights and still the G30 added 4 MPH of club head speed propelling the ball 10 yards farther than the G25.
