You know how some things just look fast? A Ferrari Testarossa. The Japanese Bullet Train. The old SST jetliner.

The Ping Rapture V2 Hybrid with Graphite Shaft fits nicely into that category. This club just has a cool look to it and inspires confidence that you are going to make that ball go very fast because the club is going to go very fast. I've used other hybrid clubs -- some from several years ago and some from more recent times -- none of them have the same confidence inspiring look as this offering from Ping.

The Ping Rapture V2 Hybrid with Graphite Shaft is available in a variety of setups for both right- and left-handed players. With loft choices of 17, 20, 23 and 27 degrees, there are also options for shaft type: Ping's TFC 939H or the Mitsubishi Javelin and in most cases flex options of Light, Regular or Stiff. As a left-handed player, my choices are often very limited, but I must say, Ping often comes through with flying colors on that score by offering the bulk of their line in either right or left hand versions.

For those that have hit hybrids before, you know how important a low Center of Gravity (CG) is for getting the ball airborne. If you have yet to try a hybrid, look for those with a low CG as it will make your life much easier. The Ping Rapture V2 Hybrid has a tungsten weight added to lower the CG so that even marginally struck shots are going in the direction and at the height you want them to (or close to it). This club has a lot going for it, and it's tough to find any real negative aspects, but the price is on the high side for comparable clubs -- so if this is the one for you, bring your wallet.
