Ping G425 vs Titleist T300 Irons Review & Specs 2021

It’s not often that you come across a set of irons that are easy on the eyes when you are squaring up and give you the forgiveness and launch you would expect form bulkier, distance irons.

But it seems that this type of elusive iron is exactly what Ping and Titleist have created for improving golfers.

These game improvement irons are among the most respected on the market. The Ping G425 improve on the G410’s and offer a ton of accuracy, forgiveness and feel in a small more compact head. The Titleist T300’s are focused on ball speed, distance and forgiveness and the Tungsten Weighting ensures a solid flight path.

The good-looks of the two iron sets that we are going to be taking a look at today give them instant shelf appeal. But do they perform on the course?

The technology that these two sets are jam packed with, suggest that they should and today we are going to find out which irons come out on top when the irons go head to head.

Background Of The Sets

Titleist t300’s

As you might have already guessed the Titleist t300 irons are the heir apparent to the popular T-200’s.

The one thing you will notice right away when squaring up with the Titleist t300’s is that they have a chunkier top line than the T-200’s – but less offset.

The blade length is also smaller. So the newest additions to the T line of irons look stout and powerful. And just in case anyone was wondering, the Titleist t300’s actually premiered back in 2021.

Ping G425’s

Ping on the other hand took a hiatus in 2000.

But they are back with the highly anticipated G425 irons that are here to succeed the G400 and G410 models.

The lofts are the same (surprisingly) but the profile is significantly thinner.

Key Features of the Titleist t300

Key Features

Selling Points

The most notable feature of the Titleist t300’s is that they are the most forgiving clubs in the T series beside their less pronounced offset.

They have the second lowest loft of any of the irons in the T series so they produce a low trajectory but impressive ball speed.

They are tungsten weighted with cavity backs so the center of gravity is nice and low in the toe.

Key Features of the Ping G425

Key Features

Selling Points

The most notable feature of the Ping G425’s is the VFT or variable face technology.

VFT allows for an exceptionally thin face and an asymmetrical architecture which produces more bounce all around the face.

Club Improvements

Ping G425’s

The Ping G425 irons are noticeably smaller in the blade than the G410’s. The shaping of the head gives a more premium feeling but you don’t lose anything in terms of launch or distance thanks in part to the VFT.

The G425 also have a notched hinge which the previous G series irons didn’t have. The purpose of this notch is to increase ball deflection.

These irons would be great for anyone struggling with right draw bias.

Titleist t300’s

With the Titleist t300’s, the company has gone smaller and stockier in the heads.

The Titleist t300’s also feature a shorter blade and less pronounced offset.

But you don’t lose anything in terms of forgiveness.

So if you are struggling with accuracy, these cubs would be a great choice.

Who is Each Set for?

The Titleists launch low and fast but if you are looking for more precise targeting overall and better approach control we think they would be a better option for you.

However, if more forgiveness is what you are after, you couldn’t do much better than the G425’s The notched hinge and asymmetrical face make these irons a slicer’s dream.

Composition Comparison

Both of these iron sets are available in graphite and steel shafts. The real difference is in the head and face shape. The Ping G425’s have a much thinner face and top line than the Titleist t300’s.

The blade length of the Ping G425 irons is also slightly longer than the Titleist t300’s. But offset is pretty much the same between both these iron sets.

Performance Comparison

We were getting pretty impressive ball speed with the Titleist t300 irons. They launched quite low and super fast with minimal spin.

But we were getting consistently straighter shots with the Ping G425 irons. They definitely made it easier to reduce draw even on off-center shots. Also, if you have trouble getting enough air time with your irons, the Ping G425’s are going to be more suitable.

Price Comparison

A complete set of Titleist t300 irons will run you about $800 while the Ping G425’s can cost anywhere between $750 and $875.

Final Words

So which set of irons came out on top? This one’s a draw – depending on what you’re looking for. The Ping irons were noticeably more forgiving but didn’t produce as much ball speed as the Titleist t300 and they are a good bit more expensive.

The Titleist t300’s were faster but the noticeably shorter blades make them better suited to more skilled players.

But both of these iron sets look impressive behind the ball so we would recommend you check them both out if that’s what you’re after.
