Summary: I have played Ping isi-K, i3+, s57 ll steel stiff, rapture V2 graphite stiff (which I retained), and recently the excellent Ping i20 steel regular. I have been scoring well with these. I planned to trade in the Raptures for a set of TaylorMade MC Project-X 6.5 for my son who hits it a long way. Before trading I tried a 'farewell round' with the Raptures. I realised that despite the i20s being fantastic clubs, the Raptures were even stronger and more forgiving.
Summary: these irons are the benchmark for all other irons that claim to be easy to hit and forgiving. if you want to be on the green in regulation then you want a set of these irons. i was playing i15s and occasionally missing the greens on my second shots but i had the players irons.then i tried thee rapture v2s.what an eye opener. these irons will put the ball where your swing is aimed.also smoother i swing these the more accurate i am.
Have had at least 6-8 different ping Irons and these are the best.

Summary: I have been playing Ping clubs about 35 years and think that the V2 Irons are the best yet. I sold my original Rapture Irons and bought the V2's. Also have changed from regular shafts to soft regular and find that not only easier to hit but longer.
Summary: Good evening gentleman. After a quick spin around the club this morning, followed by a few games of gin with the lads & tea, I've decided to sit by the fire and enlighten you all as to the fortitude of said irons. My particular set was special ordered through the WRX division of Ping (formerly Karsten Manufacturing). A friendly employee named Tinsley assisted with the order. I dare say they are a competent lot. My clubs arrived without delay.
Summary: These clubs have helped my reduce 12 strokes per round on my score. The key is the combination of the appropriate color code or fitting as well as the technogy associated with the Rapture Irons. All clubs have the exact same feel, all are extremey tight in terms of dstance gaps, all are straight!!
Summary: I recently purchased a Ping Rapture V2 Driver, 9 Degree with Graphalloy ProLaunch Blue 55R shaft and Ping cord grip. This was a special order club that went for $499 brand new. It was used once and I got it for $149. You know why? Because I'm the man. Took it out today and hit bombs on the range. One after the other. Like Iron Byron but in the flesh. Great driver that delivers a penetrating trajectory with lots of roll. Easy to fade, hit low or hit high.
long, sweet, forgiving and it will stay in my bag!

Summary: Out of curiosity I purchased a single iron, a 7 iron in graphite shaft. I currently use Ping's G10 irons, and my driver is the rapture V2 also by Ping. This iron is white dot, and 1" longer than standard. Played with them today....They are at least 10 yards longer than my G10 stiff metal iron. I love this club, and hate the fact that Ping does not sell them anymore. Easy to hit, great ball flight, just what the doctor ordered.
