Before the release of Ping's newest wholesale golf clubs, Ping i20 irons, for 2012, let's eye on the pretty outstanding Rapture V2 Irons. They are oversized and designed to offer maximum forgiveness. The face is lightweight titanium while the body is stainless steel. This re-positions weight in the sole of the iron, again in the form of tungsten. Stronger lofts in each iron gives added distance.
The Ping Rapture V2 Irons leverage the multi-metal technology to not only launch the ball longer, but also higher and with more accuracy. Now you can hit those soaring iron approach shots that go high and long and yet land softly on the green. If you are sick of missing greens or facing those monster birdie putts, the Rapture V2 irons will quickly solve that problem. Moreover, These irons can make high handicappers look like mid handicappers, and mid handicappers look like competent low handicap players. This really isn't an exaggeration.
What's more, the Rapture V2 Irons have a dense tungsten sole weight which positions the center of gravity low and away from the face. This extreme toe weigthing optimizes the launch angle and provides for a consitently high yet penetrating trajectory. All this innovation is only made possible by the lightweight titanium face insert that allows more weight to be shifted out to the bottom and perimeter areas of the clubface. All this means better iron shots that are much easier to hit. Almost every shot with these irons all through the set goes dead straight, whether it was a good swing or a bad swing. The Rapture V2 Irons really are one of the most forgiving and easiest to hit irons you can buy just now.
According to the latest test done by the testers, "we really did like the look of the Ping Rapture V2 Irons, especially the green shaft, just check out the forgiveness and dispersion marks. Craig certainly loved the consistency and he was clearly accurate with his 6-iron. Colin thought they felt strong while Alex struggled more than the amateurs and noted a lot of offset on these irons."
