Advanced players will need to re-shaft to avoid stock distance sacrifices. I like a 12-degree loft, which is unusual, but the trajectory is perfect. Making a cameo in this sequel is the stock upgrade of a Mitsubishi Diamana Blueboard shaft. Mostly the horrible days were on occasions where it was rather windy. As I said I had a Ping V2 driver, only had it for about 3 months before it went by by. I learned about shaft weight and how they relate to stiffness 53g, 58g, 63g and so on.
I bought a 9 degree V2 and have been struggling to get any consistency, 1 out of 3 is better than the Callaway but all of them slice. Every place I went everyone was pushing the G15, probably because it was new and there were incentives for the retailers to move them. Swing speed was not what it once was so after a few rounds kinda got an itch to get a little more distance off the tee. The sound is very satisfying due the tungsten weights. Pro Verdict: A good looking solid driver which produced impressive stats for me although I still prefer its better and cheaper! The Rapture V2 also comes in 10.
The addition of this composite material also helps create a more solid sound… something that a lot of newer drivers lack.

The Ping Rapture driver is probably the most technologically advanced driver that the company has ever produced. I have only had the rapture for a couple of weeks and love it! The Ping Rapture V2 is by far the best driver I have ever hit. I'm a pure distance junkie, wasn't too worried about the few draws or fades I hit just how far it went. Plasma-welded, machined, variable face thickness for added distance.
Jim Hagerty is a freelance writer and journalist. Overall a very nice driver that will attract feel players and those looking for a modern classic club. Specifications: Available in 3 171cc, 16 degrees of loft , 5 165cc, 19 degrees woods. Ping have 'maxxed-out' on all the available technologies for the Rapture range and the driver is no exception. Nike, Callaway, Titleist, Taylor Made, Ping, Hippo, Clones, everything looking for that just right feel, distance, accuracy, confidence. I work at a golf course pro shop and have hit every driver out there and always come back to Ping. If I come across a definitive answer, I will post it here.
Not good when you're in you early 50's. I would just like to add my two thumbs up for the V2. What did I learn, besides the obvious…, through this journey I learned about swing weight D5, D4, D3. Golf club head covers, tool kits, torque wrenches, or other related accessories should be included whenever possible though are not mandatory. Throw out that headcover and find one from a competitor that fits. Do you have any other suggestions? I have been very inconsistent with my drives the past few months and tried out the demo for a few rounds. He suggested changing the shaft from the Regular it came with to a Seniors shaft.
I then changed to a 9 degree with a stock stiff shaft and gained an average of 20 yards off the tee. I find it well balanced and that it naturally promotes a nice draw. I am sure that into the wind the ball came backwards. If I had a handicap it would most likely be around 8-10. Well, I should say it's easy for me. The first time I hit the driver, I cleared the net and landed in the fairway of the hole behind the range. The Rapture V2 line is made with a combination of stainless steel, titanium and tungsten, and each club is uniquely perimeter-weighted and available in a variety of shaft flex options.
Frustrated, but not willing to give up, I settled back on the Ping V2 driver. I hit it too hard and I broke the shaft. I went to the Ping fitting center again, they suggested I just needed to go to a 12 degree reg shaft G15. Over the last few weeks I have hit any and everything I could test. If you prefer to use your own shipping service, you are welcome to do that at your own expense. Went back, hit the other 3, went back to the pro shop.
However, on off centre hits it felt hard, gave a weak high flight through the air with no forgiveness and a reduction in distance.

He's also been a featured speaker in the Online Golf Summit and is a member of Ultimate Golf Advantage's Faculty of Experts. Which do you think is better the Rapture or the G Stretch? This time I stuck with the 10. The one knock on this club is that it is only available in one loft — 13°. They come in four lofts 17, 20, 23 and 27 degrees and for novice and developing players are suitable alternatives to long irons 3 through 5 iron. D5, the Burner I tried was just too heavy over all.
Perhaps a good club for those who can't get the ball up in the air, whilst I stand corrected I consider it a dog. Even with the increased stability in the head, it was still possible to move the ball left and right easily. A nice looking club however, but if you hit a high ball I wouldn't recommend this club. Trade values are based on several factors such as demand, condition, release date and other resale factors. Now you guys do your part keep quiet about this gem, I need all the advantage I can get.
