This specialty club features significant tungsten weighting to create a high MOI for a head its size, making the Rapture driving iron easier to hit than the 2-iron equivalent. Its wider sole gives the Rapture D.I. the performance of a comparable hybrid but with much less spin. As a result, the 18-degree head delivers a flat, penetrating trajectory with faster ball speeds for maximizing distance with control.

RAPTURE D.I. Specifications
The Rapture driving iron is a specialty club that's a good fit for players seeking a flat, penetrating trajectory that optimizes control. Effective from the tee or the fairway, the 18-degree 17-4 stainless steel head is more forgiving and generates faster ball speeds than the 2-iron equivalent. Yet its wider sole offers the performance of a hybrid but with a lower launch angle and much less spin. The controlled trajectory is essential for keeping the ball under the wind or when playing on a hard, fast course and the goal is to maximize roll out.
A key attribute of the Rapture driving iron is its flat face made of ultra-strong 455 Carpenter stainless steel, which contributes to greater ball velocity and promotes workability because it has no bulge and roll. A generous sole locates the CG low for optimizing launch conditions and turf interaction.
The shaft in the Rapture D.I. is 39.75", a half-inch longer than a standard PING 2-iron shaft. PING’s proprietary TFC 949 graphite shaft promotes greater momentum and inertia for improved energy transfer, resulting in faster ball speeds and longer distance.
