The Golf Monthly test team reviews the PING Rapture 3 Wood
Ping Rapture 3 Wood Key Technology:
This multi-material 3-wood is designed as a longer 3-wood or driver alternative. It features a titanium body, high-strength beta-titanium face and a tungsten sole to increase ball speeds but minimise spin. Almost 25 per cent of the head’s mass is located in the tungsten weight, resulting in a low centre of gravity. Its 13-degree, deeper-face profile sits between a driver and a fairway.
Will suit… Those who want a driver replacement to improve accuracy off the tee.
It’s wonderful to see Ping produce a titanium 3-wood design. Although it’s very expensive, on test it was clear that the materials have been used to fantastic effect to create an outstanding performer. The consistently straight shots it offered off a tee peg make it a great choice if you’re playing a particularly tight course, or are looking to keep the ball down.
