Ping - you can't beat them.
7 January 2013
Summary: The Ping Rapture fairway woods were the jewel of the Ping line when they came out in 2006. Although the price was high, you did get your moneys worth in the technology that went into these clubs. The club head is made out of Titanium which offers a light club head with optimal forgiveness. It also has a large weight that is positioned directly beneath the Center of Gravity to help get the golf ball off the ground and into the air.
Summary: This club hits very well and I have been able to get very good distance out of it. It is more accurate than a driver and is good for hitting on narrow fairways and where you need to make it to a dogleg in the fairway of 150 yards or so.
Summary: Stronger loft and larger club head than on most 7 woods makes this club easier to hit especially off a tee. Gorgeous club head and overall design. Probably as long hitting as most 5 woods except with higher trajectory. If you fight a fade on most fairway woods this might be one to try as for me it seems to promote more of a draw than most fairway woods I've used.
Summary: This summer I purchased all Ping golf woods. This Ping rapture fairway wood is just fabulous - I'm getting so much more distance and I just love the look of the club. The price I got it for was excellent. I highly recommend the Ping Ladies clubs, just try them out, you will be sorry you didn't get them sooner.
Summary: I love this club already and I've just played with it once. Just like the other reviewers said, 10-15 yards longer than their other 3 woods, same results here (254 yard off a tee verified with GPS)and I'm 63 years young!
Summary: I'm a 60+ yr old golfer who took up the game 18 months ago, and usually shoot in the low 90s to high 80s. With a slow swing speed of approx 85-90mph, my drives are usually in the neighborhood of 210-230 yards with my Taylormade 13.5* R7 Draw Driver. Having bad days with the Driver in my hand I've resorted to using a Titleist 15.5* 906f4 3 wood from the tee box, which would get me somewhere in the fairway 200+ yards downrange.
Summary: Great 3 wood to replace your driver if that's what you are looking for. Goes far and straight off the tee. Very difficult to hit from fairway or rough. The large club head design may be responsible for this. 14 degree, standard regular flex shaft.
