After talking with my Ping rep I am pretty sure you won't see any pictures of the new line for a little while. Ping is trying to keep it under wraps like all the other major OEM's. All reps have the pictures and information but aren't letting anyone take pictures as of right now.

The driver "looks" alot like the Anser driver. I was told it has a higher MOI for more foregiveness. The only stock shaft is a new TFC model. Driver has same adjustability as Anser. Fairway woods are same size as G20 with no adjustabilty(same rear weight as Anser). Hybrid looks like Anser as well with no adjustability. I thought the irons looked a lot  like the I20's from the back, very simple. From the top they are very game improvement looking. I asked to get pics but was told no.

This is true. Started hitting shelves summer of 2011 I believe so I'm assuming we'll get the announcement in February but wont see them in stores till the summer.  Can't believe time has flown that quick.  I got my G20s at the end of 2011 and its weird that there's already talk of the next line. Hope its not too much better than what is already available.  G20 irons are hard to beat for what they are meant to do.

Saw pics on the Ping rep's iPad. Looks good, different shape at address, but same matte finish and adjustability as Anser. He said it would be a very dark grey rather than black though. New iron looks good. Similar CTP look to i20, very similar to g5 from the top (slimmer than G10-20). All the G25 product has PING in very large letters on the bottom similar to Serene product. Driver had an almost Speedline shape to the bottom.

Also new putters to replace Scottsdale. Adjustable standard length putter (same system as Nome 405 and 500), new series has same face grooves as Serene.

He said they are switching to an 18 rather than 24 month product cycle hence the early launch.

Really? That's more of an 18mth cycle, surprised reps already have pics if they won't be released until Feb, can't be too long before it leaks.

Good to know, was about to buy an Anser driver, I'll wait for the g25

I'm sad to hear the G is going adjustable.  IMO Ping is the last manufacturer that makes great glued drivers.  It looks like sooner rather than later their whole line will be adjustable.

Will the G25 Driver still be at the $299 price point or is it jumping up to $399 because of the adjustability?
I can see the G20 being a hot seller if dropped to $199 and can still be ordered (ala the G15).

Late 2013 and they will be coded 714.

Expect to see prototypes around or just before the British Open time next year - they will be in some bags and the caddies will do everything to stop you getting a peek!

Not sure how they will improve the look or performance of the 712 MB's ( a bit more weight behind the sweet spot wouldn't go astray) or how much change they can make to the AP2's (thinner top line and narrower sole hopefully).

Let's see
