It’s only early days and the TG test team has only conducted limited testing but from what we’ve seen so far the new Ping Rapture V2 driver could well be the smash hit of 2009!
That’s a bold statement to make but after handing the first Ping Rapture V2 driver off the production line to our equipment wizards the response has been more than positive.
The driver we tested was a simple 10.5 degree regular shaft model but for those closely suited to the specs they raved about how fast the ball left the driver face and how penetrating the ball flight was. Off-centre hits are also well-catered for and our guys struggled to hit any truly awful drives.
No expense has been spared in the production of the Rapture V2. The 460 cc head has been manufactured out of titanium and tungsten, while external tungsten weight pads help make it more forgiving and lower the spin rate (which is a good thing!).
And although we only tested the Ping Rapture V2 driver in 10.5 degree it is also available in 9°,12° & 13.5°.
Expect to see the Ping Rapture V2 driver priced at £310. It’s a bit on the steep side, but it really does get the job done!
