PING G425 MAX
I got 18 holes in with this guy today. 12 degree model with stock Alta CB 55G Soft Regular flex. I had he loft setting on standard and the sliding weight all the way towards the heel (draw). Standard length, grip. Comments:
Very easy to hit straight, I mean dead straight.
I can't comment on forgiveness, because all 14 shots were struck in the middle of the face. See pic below.
Sound is different than the G400 and G410. It's not pleasing or irritating.....just a different kind of acoustic pop.
distance is good, not OMG good like the XXIO, but as far as anything else I've owned or tried. Keep in mind that anything over 200 yards is pretty good for me. I have demoed the G400 SFT and G410 Plus. Distance is about the same.
I never tried a G400 Max, so I can't compare them.
Turbulators are still ugly.....I hate them. I still think the G10 was the best PING driver aesthetically....but that's just me.
I hit 13 of 14 fairways today. This thing is confidence inspiring. It is SOOOOO straight.
I did not fool with loft settings, but trajectory was fine for me.
Finally, I'm not paying full price. If I did anything, I'd try to find a used G400 Max for $12 first.
