TG Hybrid Test 2012 - Gold Award
More than four decades on from Cobra’s first trailblazing Baffler, the concept is essentially the same – but the technology has changed somewhat. The Baffler T-Rail wowed our testers with its all-round performance and power.
This was Peter’s favourite club. He had no hesitation in awarding it top marks in every category because he simply couldn’t fault it. David insisted the ball speeds were impressive from the Baffler T-Rail, even on mis-hits, and that’s why he rated it highly for forgiveness.
He admitted it wasn’t his favouritelooking club on test with a slightly larger head and a touch of offset but the performance more than made up for the aesthetics. Conversely Alan was taken with the looks of the head – particularly
the neon alignment lines on the crown and the bright yellow grip, which he thought made the club stand out. In terms of the performance, he was impressed by the feel and the speed with which the ball flew off the face.
Pro verdict: I’m not a fan of busy crowns but I like the alignment lines on the Baffler and it sounded great coming off the face. Despite being a bit bigger than some it also sat really well and that promoted confidence. Personally I would change the grip as I feel that removes focus from the clubhead – where it should be. But this is a very good club and would suit a wide spectrum of golfers.
