The design of Ping’s newest fairway wood started with a simple question among the design team: “How can we make the hottest fairway wood out there?”

The result, Ping’s Rapture fairway wood, is a 219-cubic-centimeter titanium fairway wood with a deep face and a tungsten sole weight that pulls the center of gravity extremely low in the head. Watch the exclusive interview below with Ping’s Director of Product Development Marty Jertson to learn more about the new club.

The Rapture fairway wood will be available in only one loft, 13 degrees, with Ping’s TFC 949 shaft (R, S and X flexes) with a stock length of 43.5 inches. It will be released in the early spring. Pricing information is not yet available.

    Few, if any, people are going to pay $500 for a 3W. More than likely, if you want it, you’ll have to order it. Golfsmith isn’t carrying it in the stores, but has it in their online store. I’ll stick with the G25 3W for $220.

    Only 13* loft? What’s the point?

    That head looks crazy big in those photos. Would def be just a driver replacement. And is it just me, or does the face seem kinda shallow vs lets say a 3Deep?

    With that said though, hope I get to hit this. Looks bad a$$

    I would like to give this a try, I have alot of trouble finding a 3-wood that I like. I actually have been using a 18* XTD FW and no 3-wood. I really miss the extra 20-25 yards on a few tight driving holes.

    Great idea!
    So… this has me thinking “I’d like more confidence off the tee, so this could replace my driver and then I’d need a 4 wood to fill the gap…” Ping has me wanting to spend more money on them, again!

    Didn’t Adams do the same with the XTD? The whole Titanium, Tungsten, blah blah…? seems like the same set up, different company..

    Essentially, it’s a driver.

    If you’re willing to hit a 220cc off the deck, you go right ahead.

    What’s old is new again.
