Ping G410 Key Features

The Ping G410 is a 455CC driver which, helps keep the weight down some.

This allows more leeway for the adjustable weight that’s located in the back of the club that allows you to adjust for draw and fade.

The face is constructed of machine forged titanium which, enhances feel and ball speed.


Ping G425 Key Features


The Ping G425’s adjustable weight is a bit beefier at 26 grams. It’s also made from tungsten.

The crown is made of thin titanium and is supported in part by the internal dragonfly ribbing pattern.

This helps stabilize the thin crown and the T9S face for better feel and stability.


The G410 Family

Ping has also released the G410 LST driver. The LST boasts some key improvements over the standard G410.

For instance, it was developed to produce less spin off the tee.

The G410 LST still maintains high MOI in a slightly more compact head (450CC). It also has a sliding rear weight.


The G425 Family

The G425 also got the LST treatment but the changes are a bit more noticeable.

First of all, the G425 LST features a smaller, pear-shaped head design to once again, limit spin.

Secondly, the sliding weight has been dropped down to 17 grams instead of 26. It’s also only available in 9 and 10.5 lofts.


G410 Vs. G400

The G410 succeeded the more compact G400 driver.

The G400 sports a 445CC head. It lacks an adjustable weight but still has an adjustable hosel that lets you tune the loft by +/- 1 degree.

Other than that, the G400 and G410 drivers are practically identical with the former being better on spin.


G425 Vs. Taylormade SIM 2

The SIM 2 features the Inertia Generator which, is essentially a bottom fin that enhances aerodynamics on your swing.

While it delivers comparable distance to the G425, it lacks the shot shapability and versatility.

However, both drivers feature a milled face architecture which, help to increase ball speed and enhance overall feel.

Who is Each Driver for?

First of all, both the G410 and the G425 drivers are great for anyone looking for increased forgiveness without losing distance.

However, the G425 is certainly more suited for forgiveness than distance with it’s 460CC head.

If accuracy is less of a concern for you, the G410 may be more your style.


Performance Comparison

We noted that the G410 was producing less spin off the tee than the G425. This usually resulted in a 4 yard gain.

The internal Dragonfly ribbing system in the G425 though felt more complete. It gave the G425 a more satisfying feel over all.


Accuracy & Consistency

The G410 was a bit easier to work even though both feature a moveable weight.

We were able to position the ball a bit more strategically than the G425.

However, both of these drivers produced very consistent shots in terms of distance and trajectory. 


Price Comparison

The newer G425 driver costs around $500 these days while the older G410 can be had for around $400.

Final Assessment

There’s no doubt that Ping has produced some great drivers over the years. So much so that there seems to be little room for improvement.

This seems to be the case between the G410 and the G425. The G425 simply doesn’t have enough significant improvements to justify the higher price.

While it may be the better choice for players who are looking for maximum forgiveness, it costs $100 more so you better be sure that forgiveness is what your game really needs.

Overall the G410 provides more shot versatility and distance which, is enough to put it over the top for us. It wins our endorsement so check out the Ping G410 driver today!
