For those that have hit both, which one did you choose and why?  I have an I20, and really like the G25.  Which one is longer?  more forgiving, easier to hit?

Thanks in advance for the comments.

I am assuming you are talking drivers?  I haven't hit the i20 driver but I play the G25.  I found the G25 to be the most forgiving driver I have ever played.  Very low spin and low launching too.  The sound is loud and high pitched but it is okay and I can live with it.  The look at setup is easy to line up and it appears so large it gives you confidence that you can't miss.  But be sure if you do miss it is still going to go like you didn't.  Great driver.  I switched from a 913 D3.

G25 is more forgiving but sounds and feels much worse. I20 is one of the best feeling to me but it is a little shorter than the g25 too. I disagree on the launch of g25, I had to go down to 8.5 head with a much heavier shaft to get the distance.

Thanks for the replies, I added driver in the title.  I have an I20, is it worth it to go to the G25, or are they fairly similar?  I hit the I20 pretty well, but was wondering if the added forgiveness was worth me adding it to the bag.

I have the i20 and it seems to launch lower then the G25. I have a terrible problem with my spin numbers being high, G25 seem to compound that problem more for me.

Anser is a way better than both of them. The stock shaft is a gem.

I have owned all 3....
Easiest to hit... Real close between Anser & G25....
Sound & feel easily go to i20...
Looks.... 6 of 1.... half dozen of another....
Longest... (for me)  G25 by a landslide....
Also had best dispersion with G25
Anser was the easiest to work... But it is nice hitting it straight with the G25...
Did I mention the G25 is STRAIGHT....

Agree with the OPs above. Also, remember the G25 and Anser have interchangeable shafts and loft can be adjusted +/- 1/2* for those that care. I20 is fixed (glued) shaft, no adjusting loft.Guessing there will be an I25 coming after 1st of the year. Will it be adjustable, interchangeable shafts ??????
FWIW: More than one reliable store/club pro has told me Ping is letting the Anser go because it did not sell well. I can not imagine that because of the number of people who say they love it but...

The Anser does have some great stock shaft options and I was hitting it straight for days, but for distance the i20 was getting a little more than both the G25 and Anser

I have all three and for my swing, the I20 works better. I do not have a robot swing where it is the same every time. Out of 10 swings, the I20 is better all around. The G25 launches higher and  spins more than I like. The Anser goes straighter but not as long as the I20. The I20 just looks, feels, right.

Love my i20 with the PX 8A4, it doesnt go left. . I too struggle with high launch high spin and this combo solves both. Ill probably play around with shafts a bit because thats just what I do but I could play my current set up and be completely happy. Id like a tad more launch but would like to keep my spin numbers. I play the 8.5 so may look at some of the Kusala offerings and see if any give me the launch I need.

Have only hit i20.  Own it and since buying it have had zero desire to even look at another driver.  It is perfect for me, great look, great feel, long, very forgiving, shorter stock length and glued hosel (a plus in my book for feel and because with 1 bad driving day I'm always tempted to fiddle with an adjustable hosel).

Thanks for the replies.  I ordered the G25, give me something to play with over the winter.  I will hit both side by side and see which one wins.

Of the 3 drivers which would work better for a high launch LOW spin driver like myself?  I spent time with a Ping Tour rep last April and the G25 8.5* / DI7x combo was sweeeeeet.  The 9.5* Anser just fell out of the sky because of no spin.  I remember trying the i20 back in 2012 and it was nice but I didn't spend a ton of time with it.  I LOVE the i20 hybrids!

I ask about the i20 because VISUALLY I like the look the best.  I also like the slight fade bias because I spend too much time on the left side of the fwy lately.  With the price being cheap, getting a pulled premium mid-low/mid spin shaft like a S+72 or Fubuki Tour 73x  or AD-DI6x could make it a great combo.

i'd lead the PGA tour in Driving Accuracy by 7% over second place last year with my G25. It's not always about distance though the G25 isn't lacking

I went out for a new driver last week and loved the feel and look of the i20. Launch and spin was great for my swing as well. With my previous RBZ driver I was launching it 18*+ with over 4000 rpm spin. The i20 gave me 13-15* launch with consistent 2300-2500 rpms. Im about a 13-14 hc and I found it plenty forgiving and felt confident swinging it.

Doesn't hurt that it was within my price range at $200, either.

Can't wait to get to the golf dome and spend some more time with it!

As several others have mentioned ... the look, feel, and sound of the i20 is the best of the three (to me, anyway) ... and long.
