Cobra Golf announces the introduction of the new Baffler Rail Hybrid, the ideal alternative to long irons offering avid golfers superior forgiveness and versatility.
Thirty-five years ago, Cobra launched the Baffler and forever revolutionised the way golfers play long approach shots. The tradition continued with the Baffler DWS and TWS – which have been some of the leading-selling hybrids in the game over the past five years. Now for 2010, Cobra has drawn inspiration from the original design and years of knowledge gained from making the game’s best-performing hybrids, to create the Baffler Rail Hybrid.
“Improving upon the performance of previous leading-selling hybrids was a direct result of Cobra’s focus on utilising advanced technology and design to create superior performing clubs,” says Brian Zender, General Manager of Cobra Golf. “The Baffler Rail is the ultimate hybrid for long-game performance, with improved distance and control. Golfers will find this new Baffler line to be incredibly forgiving and more playable from a variety of lies. We improved upon every key performance attribute with the new Baffler Rail.”
COBRA BAFFLER RAIL HYBRID
The new Cobra Baffler Rail is a sleek-looking hybrid club that is loaded with technology. Its 17-4 steel clubhead features a thin, high strength 465 maraging steel face that is designed to increase ball speed, and combined with stronger lofts, will bolster distance. The new four-way rail sole is designed to help the club move through turf effortlessly – regardless of the lie. The standard model is also fitted with a lightweight 65-gram Fujikura Motore shaft that is designed to help increase clubhead speed. The Baffler Rail Hybrid is ideal for all players seeking the ultimate in long-game performance.
“It was a challenge to improve upon one of the top-selling hybrids in golf, but we did it by utilising several unique technologies,” says Tom Preece, Vice President of Research & Development for Cobra Golf. “The innovative rail sole design encourages more pure ball striking from any lie. The 9 Point Face Technology essentially allows most shots across the clubface to perform as if they were struck in the centre of the clubface for improved forgiveness, accuracy and ball speed. Finally, the special thin, lightweight clubface allows us to strategically reposition 10% of the weight deeper and lower in the clubhead, which improves launch conditions for optimal ball flight.”
The Cobra Baffler Rail Hybrid (£129 SRP) is available in 2/H, 3/H, 4/H, 5/H and 6/H models. It is available with a Fujikura Motore graphite shaft (Lite, R or S flex) and a Lamkin grip. A women’s Baffler Rail Hybrid model is also available in 3/H, 4/H, 5/H, 6/H and 7/H. The Baffler Rail Hybrid will start shipping to retailers across Europe on May 1st.
