Just ahead of its 40th anniversary, Cobra Golf is launching its new Baffler Hybrid Irons and Baffler Hybrid Iron Combo sets. Cobra, by the way, was founded in 1973 and introduced the original Baffler, golf’s first utility wood, in 1975.
The brand-new Hybrid Irons use the latest iteration of Cobra’s traditional railed sole – which was influenced by the Baffler but designed specifically for irons – to reduce turf drag and improve contact from all lie conditions. The irons’ progressive, oversized face profile improves their forgiveness and their low center of gravity helps get the ball up in the air. In addition, their variable thickness face, which progresses from the short to the long irons, enhances ball speeds and distance on off-center hits.
The Baffler Hybrid Irons are also available in a Baffler Hybrid Iron Combo set (in both men's and women's), where the long irons are replaced with Baffler Hybrids. The hybrids have a wide, railed sole and shallow face for easy launch as well as a top-line alignment system for added confidence.
The Hybrid Irons are available in right- and left-handed models in steel shafts and graphite shafts (both sets contain 4-iron through pitching wedge plus gap wedge), and graphite lite (5-iron through pitching wedge plus gap wedge and sand wedge) sets. They’re priced at $499 for the steel-shafted sets and $599 for the graphite sets.
The Baffler Hybrid Iron Combo Sets are available in right- and left-handed models with steel-shafted irons and graphite-shafted hybrids (4-6 hybrids and 7-iron through pitching wedge through gap wedge) and graphite hybrids and irons (4-6 hybrids and 7-iron through pitching wedge through gap wedge). They’re priced at $599 for steel combo sets and $699 for the graphite combo sets.
The men’s Baffler irons and hybrids feature Lamkin Cobra REL grips, while the hybrids feature MRC Cobra Baffler hybrid shafts and the Baffler irons come with MRC Cobra Baffler iron shafts. The full set is Revolver Grey with Barbados Red highlights.
In the women's line, the Baffler Hybrid Iron Combo set comes in right- and left-handed graphite models (4-6 hybrids and 7iron through pitching wedge plus sand wedge, priced at $699. The set is Capri Blue with silver highlights, and the clubs feature Cobra Winn Wrap grips and MRC Cobra Baffler Hybrid/Iron shafts.
The new clubs will be available at retail on Oct. 19.
