Ping Rapture V2 Fairway Wood – The Ping Rapture V2 fairway wood has also undergone a makeover with the internal weight pads in the sole replaced with a tungsten sole plate that constitutes a third of the head’s mass.
This again allows Ping to position the centre of gravity for a higher launch angle and lower spin. The head design has been made larger and shallower and you really notice this at address.
The large head of the Rapture V2 fairway gives you lots of confidence and forgiveness and although the lofts are slightly higher than normal, distance and trajectory are not affected. This is because modern golf balls spin less and we found these a joy to hit and certainly the best fairway woods Ping have made to date.
Our personal favourite is the 17 and a half degree four wood that comes with a 3-wood length shaft as standard for that little bit of extra power.
