Ping’s “Rapture” line is coming out in September. This isn’t the newest news on the block but I’d better mention it here now that there’s some info on Ping’s site about it.
Two takes on what I see: I wonder if the Rapture driver has that counter weight mounted in the back of the head, like the Ti series did. Or is that just a name plate there? If it’s the counter weight thing that brings back nightmares of when my counter weight on my TiSi Tec fell out and I started hitting screwballs.
2nd take: Either Ping is trying to bang wagon jump on the TaylorMade TP logo, or they hired the same graphic artist.
Nah, I don’t think the logos look anything alike.
As for the new Rapture line, I really like the design on the clubs, but as we know, design doesn’t make you hit the ball any better. Hopefully this new line of clubs will live up to the PING name. I can’t wait to see how the irons perform.
Well they also went for the carbon-fiber look, ala the RE*AX shaft on the new r7’s. I don’t particularly care for the Ping logo on the back though.
