Summary: I have the 17.5 degree 4wood and it has enabled me to take my old 3 and 5 woods(not pings) out of my bag and add another hybrid. You can hit this club off the tee or from the fairway with excellent results. It provides distance that will surprise you and allow you to hit higher lofted irons to the green. I have found all the Ping Rapture clubs to be superior golf clubs and I've been pleased to find them on ebay.
Summary: An Awesome club - almost drive as far as my old drivers, but now that I have the Ping driver too, I'm right in line with this fairway wood... Hits it straight as an arrow when I don't pick up my head to see how far it went!
Summary: I have been looking for new Ping V2 5 Wood to go with my driver for 6 months and finding it for the price I paid was such a bonus. I knew I would love this club even before I bought it but after I used it I was even more impressed. I also have the V2 driver which I also purchased on Ebay and would recommend both of these.
Summary: The # 1 reason I purchased this product was I have used the PING V2 Rapture driver since 2008 and have yet to find a better driver for me. I was counting on this in the 3 wood. It did not let me down! I immediately got the results I was looking for in a nice round of 73, using the club on 3 targeted holes off the tee.
