by   |   September 13, 2012

Cobra Golf is celebrating its 40th anniversary with the release of its Baffler Hybrid Iron Combo set. Released in 1975, the original Baffler was golf’s first modern utility wood. The Baffler Hybrid Iron Combo targets the super game improvement crowd, aimed at players that are looking for easy to hit hybrids and irons that deliver maximum forgiveness, higher launch and improved distance.

    I brought these 2 months ago and they do everything as advertised! They might not look like the pros clubs but than neither does my swing! These clubs make the game easier and much more enjoyable! And if a golf snob has a problem with how my clubs look than its their problem, frankly I couldn’t care less what they think!! In addition their game is most likely no better than mine, snobs who needs them anyway!!!

      Rich, I am with you on this. Unless you are a jock with single digit handicap, there is no point in using hard to hit clubs. I am 73 and play to a 14 handicap and I am looking at these Cobra irons.

      I found these on sale for $175 3h,4h 5-SW. Perfect clubs! Ive dropped a few strokes each round and im now getting my “birdie” (actual par) on each hole. Ive only been golfing 2 years this coming January. I recommend these for the weekend golfer who is serious about getting serious eventually, but doesnt have a Pros budget.

    This is what I’ve been looking for. I’ll be first in line when they go on the market in my neck of the woods.

    Forget about the look — that is in the eye of the beholder. I just hit these and they are really good. I have placed an order.

    I really like the look of these. Made to make the game a bit easier and more fun. All the blade-lovers can stick with theirs…I’m not good enough to handle them. But I’ll be buying these.

    These will be fantastic – can’t wait to buy a set. I’ve tried similar years earlier in Japan and they were so much fun to play.
