If you like, or even love, using hybrids then you've got Cobra to thank. Their original Baffler hybrid developed a new category of golf clubs. The Baffler (and subsequent hybrids and even fairways) is unique to Cobra and has not changed much through the years. This is for you if you're looking for a second-hand Cobra hybrid to help you out the rough.
The premise is a pair of rails on the sole of the club which glide through the turf to improve club-ball contact form any lie. Running adjacent to the face the rails will also help keep the clubface square through the strike zone which will improve accuracy. Finally, and a bonus really, at address the rails help set the club square behind the ball from the outset. Add all this together, and you've got a very playable concept, and one Cobra has continued to evolve over the years.
Fast forward to the most recent Cobra hybrids and Baffler tech has been teamed with the latest Cobra driver technology - creating the ultimate utility club. The F9 Speedback's low back weight distribution delivers high launch and maximum forgiveness. A forged 455 stainless steel face flexes more on impact further improving ball speeds and distance.
All Cobra metal woods feature My Fly8 which allows loft adjustability to dial in the distance in an area of the bag where gapping is a common issue.
As the game evolves, Cobra is often at the forefront in trying new things to meet the everchanging needs and demands of golfers. One of their major developments was the creation of their ONE Length family - where all clubs are the same length as a 7-iron allowing you to make the same swing. This theory has been extended into hybrids and utility irons now meaning you can have pretty much all your clubs the same length and lie angle.
Like most manufacturers, Cobra offers a driving or utility iron - but the only adjustable one - allowing for seamless adjustment to best fit a golfer's games. When paired with L-Cup face design which increases ball speed and optimises launch, you get the feel and performance of an iron while maintaining the launch and distance of a hybrid.
When looking at their naming convention, it is shared across all of the Cobra range. The KING family is Cobra's premium offering as featured in bags used by their PGA Tour staffers Rickie Fowler and Bryson DeChambeau. Anything without KING is part of Cobra's game improver range with lightness at its core. These clubs are suited to a lady or senior golfers who are looking to add some speed back into their game.
