So I plan to exchange for a more appropriate club. Thought the new Rapture was absolute garbage, all the shaft options were high launch, useless because I hit it fairly high and play on quite a breezy course. The club has never hit a golf ball. Considering that the shaft itself is 300 bucks, getting such a club now is a steal. Thinking about changing drivers to increase my trajectory and get a few more yards. .
The salesman who was good to be fair,made me try the Yonex driver too. This improved the length and I walked out of the shop - no purchase necessary - result! Golf club head covers, tool kits, torque wrenches, or other related accessories should be included whenever possible though are not mandatory. But I see references to the rapture as well, so what are the differences. The club has a very traditional look at address and a nice crisp sound off of the clubface. No scratches, sky marks or chips to the paintwork and the face will be in good condition with no heavy wear marks around the sweet spot area.
I'm a weak hitter and should have gone for a driver with a higher launch angle. I do miss the composite head from the original. The club may have only been hit at the driving range or played 2-3 rounds of golf maximum. The weight balance seemed very comfortable to me and indoors on the simulator the results were great, so I bought it and have been thrilled with it ever since. Lately, I had settled upon a Cobra that I was hitting pretty consistently and was not really in the market to change. Fitting Message Having a driver fit to your game can give you longer, more accurate tee shots.
It is easily the most forgiving driver I've ever played with. By adjusting lie angle, loft and shaft length the fitters at 2nd Swing will make sure you are getting consistently better performance off the tee. I was considering a G15 but now you can get the V2 now for less and I think it is more club for the money. Like Iron Byron but in the flesh. Easy to fade, hit low or hit high. Chrome protective layer will still be in tact, with no pitting. In our tests the Rpature V2 was a joy to hit and the new titanium head gave a great powerful sound at impact.
Acoustic Engineering The internal structure of the clubhead is engineered to produce a powerful, solid sound at impact. If there are any marks at all on the head they will be very light. I recently purchased a Ping Rapture V2 Driver, 9 Degree with Graphalloy ProLaunch Blue 55R shaft and Ping cord grip. The sound is very satisfying due the tungsten weights. But then lots of them do something similar: what set this aside as our best on test? Very little difference performance wise between the old Rapture and the G10 but the Rapture gives a much more muted sound so I went for that. I have played with four or five different drivers in the last 3 years. There may be one or two minor wear marks on graphite shafts where they have rubbed against the bag.
Pricing is updated regularly to ensure that you are receiving the highest trade-in value for your used clubs. The 460cc head is slightly elongated by extending the face height and aggressively sloping the crown. Hope the R9 has a good trade in value. There may be light sky marks and small scratches resulting from normal wear and tear. The head is only shop-soiled and could almost be passed 'As New'. Well, for one it looks like a proper driver! Ping launched the original Rapture range in 2006 with the aim of combining a variety of materials to produce the most technologically advanced clubs they could.
On graphite shafts there may be a few light scratches, but no wear on the paintwork. When completing the trade-in process you have an option to receive your funds via check, PayPal or receive a 2ndSwing. Yet another great club from a brilliant club manufacturer! Lightweight Shaft The stock shaft, as well as the lighter clubhead, result in faster swing speeds and excellent distance. I tried the G10 and both old and new Rapture drivers extensively, both on the range and on the course. Listen up fools, this club is the deal. This proved popular and now Ping has improved these clubs further with the launch of the excellent Rapture V2 range and it is the Ping Rapture V2 driver that has probably undergone the biggest change.
Took it out today and hit bombs on the range. A couple of things - the shaft is key. The Rapture V2 driver is weighted for a high-launching ball flight and extremely low spin has excellent forgiveness due to perimeter weighting. The shaft is only really shop-soiled and could almost be passed 'As New'. Not every golf club model can be given a market value and these items are typically: rare items, antique items, special or tour issue items and other very high-ticket items.
If money is no object then this is one of the very best drivers on the market, but the Rapture V2 range does not come cheap and we are not sure this V2 is £100 better than the Ping G10 driver, which is a fantastic driver in its own right. Head Ratings Score Irons Woods 10 - New or Mint Brand new, never been hit. Please have your Order Number ready and reference the tracking number on your shipment to ensure it has been delivered to our facility. It immediately felt great in my hands. Reading some forums posts the G10 has a good following that say it has good distance. The better the condition the higher value given for the item.
I played the original Rapture, and the V2 is a completely different animal. The results basically showed that I'm crap and have a swing speed of only 74mph. The new Ping Rapture V2 Driver has a 460 cc head which has been manufactured out of titanium and tungsten, while external tungsten weight pads help make it more forgiving and lower the spin rate. Either way, if there are any marks at all on the shaft they will be very light. Trade values are based on several factors such as demand, condition, release date and other resale factors. It is incredibly responsive - it can handle my hardest swings, and yet when i try to swing easy, it doesnt feel like a board.
