What are the major differences on these 3 models?

I was comparing the i20 and i25's in GS the other night and the only difference I could see was a slightly smaller top line on the i25's.

What's your favorite of these models?

Having hit all 3 id have to say its the i20. i hit the i15 when it was current and ended up buying g15s over them. after a year of seeing short irons go long and left i sold them to a friend and picked u the i20s. i love them. my favorite set of irons ive owned in 30+ years. i just hit the i25 against mine head to head at a demo day lasy week and see no reason to spend any more money. the look is similar over the ball but i find the feel of the i20s is far superior to the 25s.

Supposedly the i25's have a slightly higher launch. I've hit both and could not tell a difference.

You can't go wrong with any of them back to i5.  Personally, I like the rounded leading edge on the 20/25 over the others though.  Great clubs.

I played the I15's a long time.  If I was in the market for PING's right now, hands down the I20 for the current price.

I went from G5 to Rapture to i20 and I was sold. Such a solid iron design and almost as easy to hit as the G series.

the long irons in i25 are more forgiving compared to previous generations.

I recently picked up a set of i20s with PXI 6.0 shafts and these are some of the finest irons Ive ever played.  The i15s were very good but my current i20 set with the pxis really shine.  I havnt tried the i25s but they seem like a rebadge/rehash of the 20s.

I chose the i20s over the 25s.  I liked the feel and sound of the 20 over the new ones.  I have never hit the i15.  I may trade them in for g25s though just because I'm not playing as much these days.

I've hit the i15 and i20 and preferred the i15.  It has more mass behind the center of the club vs. the i20's CTP.  It may not be as forgiving as the i20 but I liked the design of it more.

I still have a set that I use as a backup to my Ansers since they are so similar in design.

I liked the I15s but LOVE my I20s. Hit the I25s some. Not a pro but I just could not see/feel a whole lot different. In fact, IMO the I20s have a 'softer' feel. If you're considering price the I20s are a great bargain now and can still be had new. Just don't think you'd be missing anything with them.
