The Ping Rapture driver is one of the best composite drivers we have tested.
The look and feel of the club is very similar to the excellent Ping G5, but that is where the similarities end. Ping have 'maxxed-out' on all the available technologies for the Rapture range and the driver is no exception.
Due to the lighter head, the face is more forgiving with a higher launch angle and less spin. Certainly it is very easy to hit and makes a more solid, quieter sound than the all titanium G5 driver.
The head design with the titanium lattice below the graphite looks good to us, but after a few hits you don't notice the looks, just the benefits.
The result of this technology means that it is longer, with initial estimates make it around 7 yards longer than the G5. However these extra yards come at a cost as the Ping Rapture will be a premium priced driver, so start saving!
