The Ping Rapture V2 4 fairway wood is at the forefront of Ping’s focus on multi-metal technology in which the key properties of various materials combine to produce optimize performance for all levels of player. The Rapture V2 4 fairway wood incorporates a tungsten sole plate that makes up 34% of the head’s mass, thereby positioning the centre of gravity to deliver a higher launch angle and lower spin rate, which coupled with extra loft (17.5 degrees) delivers more distance with a penetrating ball flight. The head of the Ping Rapture V2 has been designed with a larger, shallow head to enhance forgiveness and maximise performance in all conditions. The head is plasma-welded and the steel face has been machined to variable thicknesses for superior distance. The Ping Rapture V2 4 fairway also features the distinctive Double-Rapture alignment aid on the crown.

The Ping Rapture V2 fairway wood has also undergone a makeover with the internal weight pads in the sole replaced with a tungsten sole plate that constitutes a third of the head’s mass. This again allows Ping to position the centre of gravity for a higher launch angle and lower spin. The head design has been made larger and shallower and you really notice this at address. The large head of the Rapture V2 fairway gives you lots of confidence and forgiveness and although the lofts are slightly higher than normal, distance and trajectory are not affected. This is because modern golf balls spin less and we found these a joy to hit and certainly the best fairway woods Ping have made to date. Our personal favourite is the 17and a half degree four wood that comes with a 3-wood length shaft as standard for that little bit of extra power.
Comfortable from tee or turf ... extra loft gives more carry. Oct 08.
"Great carry and optimal roll...forgiving yet allows playability." May 09
