The 13-degree Rapture 3-wood is a versatile driver alternative that can inspire confidence while improving your distance and accuracy. A tungsten sole plate in the forgiving Ti 8-1-1 head, paired with an extreme high-balance-point shaft, create faster ball speeds for generating distance from the tee or the turf.
An injection-molded tungsten sole plate accounts for nearly 25% of clubhead mass, positioning the CG much lower than a traditional fairway wood, resulting in high launch and low spin for added distance.
A tall, extreme-variable-thickness face enlarges the hitting surface for increased forgiveness while accelerating ball speed to generate distance.

Maximizing your distance and accuracy on long shots from the fairway is accomplished by matching the correct shaft flex for your swing. The goal is to achieve the correct trajectory shape with the fairway wood, which maximizes distance with the longer woods and minimizes roll with the shorter woods.
Generally, the same shaft type and flex as the player's driver will produce the optimal trajectory in fairway woods, but it is not uncommon for players to have a different shaft brand, type and/or flex in their fairway woods since they are ground-impact clubs and may perform differently for some players.

|360 ID8 Full Cord||The 360 ID8 Full Cord is a round grip designed to function with drivers and fairway woods featuring PING's adjustable loft technology. It features a firmer texture in the upper portion to help control direction, a softer texture in the lower portion for enhanced feel, and soft cord to enhance traction.|
PING offers a variety of grip sizes and styles to fit different hand sizes and texture preferences. Since grip size influences your wrist action, and therefore the direction of your shots, it is commonly used by fitters to affect ball flight.
PING color-coded grips are available in six different diameters, and can be further customized with grip tape according to your needs. Once the neutral grip color code has been determined based on hand measurements, golfers may consider smaller diameter grips to help control fades and slices, or larger diameter grips to help control draws and hooks.
Advancing technological innovation to improve confidence, distance and accuracy, the powerful Rapture 3-wood is a versatile driver alternative. An injection-molded tungsten sole plate in the Ti 8-1-1 head accounts for nearly 25% of clubhead mass, which positions the CG much lower than a traditional fairway wood, resulting in high launch and low spin for added distance. A tall, extreme-variable-thickness face enlarges the hitting surface for increased forgiveness while accelerating ball speed to send the ball far.
The Rapture fairway wood has 13º loft, which can be adjusted +- ½ degree using PING’s Trajectory Tuning Technology. The lightweight, adjustable hosel has the same outer diameter and mass of PING's traditional fixed hosels and provides the benefits of adjustability without sacrificing the performance that's often lost in clubs with larger, bulkier hosel designs.
PING’s proprietary TFC 949 high-balance-point graphite shaft promotes an increase in momentum and inertia for improved energy transfer, resulting in faster ball speeds and greater distance.
