Nike Dymo2
Key Feature: Its square shape positions weight to the corners and moves the club’s CG back. The result? A high MOI for some exceptional stability and control. Oh yeah, the ball goes far, too.
What We Like: Like its Dymo counterpart, the Dymo2 helps golfers escape just about any lie. Also, the square look makes aligning shots a lot easier.
Who It’s For: Golfers who have trouble hitting the ball far and in a straight line.
Specs:Comes in four different models (3, 4, 5, 7) and a UST wide-body shaft design with Axiv core.

Nike Dymo
Key Feature: A “Quad Keel” sole features four separate quadrants to minimize interaction with the turf at impact, making it easier to get the ball airborne.
What We Like: In addition to its clean looks, we dig its “dig.” This club will help you escape any lie.
Who It’s For: Golfers who have trouble controlling the clubhead through impact; folks who like to hit their fairway woods long and straight.
Specs: Comes in four different models (3+, 3, 4, 5 ) and a UST wide-body shaft design with Axiv core.

Ping Rapture V2
Key Feature: A 61-gram tungsten sole plate that puts the CG lower and farther back for high launch and low spin.
What We Like: Its shallow face and wide sole ensure stability and forgiveness while producing a high trajectory.
Who It’s For: PING calls it a “Super Game Improvement” club, so it’s for you if you need super improving.
Specs: Stainless-steel body, plasma-welded machined steel face. Comes in four different lofts (16°, 17.5°, 19°, 22°) and two shaft options, including five versions of PING’s stock TFC 939F.
