Cobra has these on their outlet page, they only list the stock offering.  I have a 3/4 with chrome + so I really wanted the baffler with the same setup.  I called Cobra and asked if they would sell me one with the Chrome +.   I was told to purchase the stock set up and they would send me a chrome + with the grip I use MMC +4 midsize  for no additional charge, thats customer service!

Wow! I wanted to order one from there but didn’t want a second with the same shaft. Think I will call and say I use the Aldila Black shafts and see if I can get one like that as well.

I called and asked but got shot down. The reason they sent you the shaft separate is because the  affords are in a different location as stock setups and they don’t have anymore heads at the custom shop to build. So they sent you the full club and then sent you a shaft from the other location. They didn’t  extend that offer to me though.

I played 18 the other day and hit the baffler 9 times. The only other clubs with that kind of play time is my driver, putter and 64* wedge. Loving this club. Sucks off the tee though. But stick it in some wet thick stuff and the ball just goes. My 64* is my get out of jail around the greens and this is my get out of jail everywhere else.

Thats exactly how it happened, all of their outlet products are in a different location so they couldn't just grab me a head and install the chrome + on it before shipping.  It doesn't appear that Cobra is continuing to offer the Chrome + as an upgrade maybe they were happy to get another one out the door. Either way I must have found a rep in a good mood, guess I got lucky, maybe its pay back for all the Cobra products I've bought off the shelf.

Yeah, that’s what I found with mine. I have moved it back as my 5W and added a 3W back in the bag. 17.5* with this thing and it’s like hitting a wedge out the rough. I’ve tried to hit it fat and it still goes 85%.

Just picked one up used.  Have tried a few settings, but currently my only fw set at 16 degrees.  It's really wet here this time of year, baffler is terrific on soft conditions.  No point in carrying my dymo quad keel 13 degree 3+ right now.  We'll see when it drys out...the 13 can reach par 5s with roll, like a fw driver.  OTOH I've thrown away strokes before by hitting stray fw shots...a lot to be said for knowing where it's going.  I don't really need a long fw off the tee...hitting driver straight enough.

My driver ss is 105 and while the stock red tie stiff feels a smidgen light, it's not breaking down.  I play it a couple inches back of my usual 3 wood ball position and hit it dead straight. Might try a slightly heavier shaft or leave well enough alone.

I wish I had a 3+ I felt that good about from the fairway.  The dymo quad keel 3+ is inexplicably good for me when it's dry.  Maybe the F8+ is better.  A lot of the magic is the shorter shaft length though and F8+ is 43".  I wish they made a roughly 13-14 degree baffler at 42" length.

Shorten the F8+ and you have a 3/4 baffler.
Unfortunately I've had limited success shortening clubs...not one club out of about 40-50 in my three bags plus laying in my trunk are shorter than standard.  I use lead tape routinely, special head wts, heavier shafts etc I'm 6'4" 235 and tend to play over standard length partly to achieve proper heft.  Cutting down clubs always seems to change the character of the club for me in a bad way. The F6 baffler is designed short and works well.

Well finally got this thing on the course last weekend, and it was one of the few highlights in an otherwise rough round. I have mine set at 19 with a matrix code 8 shaft in it. It complements my f7 3 wood so well. It has taken the 5 wood spot in my bag and falls right in next to the 4 iron well. I love the heavy head, compact look and ease out of the junk. This thing will probably be my favorite club In the bag over the season

Always wanted to try this club.  I carried the 5-7 Bio Cell+ for years (still do from time to time) and its one of my favorite clubs ever.  I read something that said that the Baffler was the same head with the rails added to the sole.

I'm going to have to snag one the next time I see one used at PGA SS. They usually price them around $59. I had one in hand a couple of weeks ago and passed. After reading all this, I need to try one for an extended period.

Best club in the bag PERIOD.  They will have to pry this thing from my cold dead hands.  I tried to replace it with the M2 tour HL but it was too high.  I tried a bunch of hybrids and only one of them came close to the distance and control i have with this club (tour exotics hybrid).  This thing is a gem.  I have the Aldila Rogue Black shaft in it.  I'm thinking of switching to the Hzrdus yellow.  Other than that, this club is the s***!

Question for all you baffler fanatics.
Are you playing a heavy fwy shaft in your baffler or hybrid shaft? Play mine as a 5wd.
I pulled an old aldila ahina shaft from a 910F to put in mine and it’s worked well just curious what others have done.
I don’t know a lot in terms of the difference between a fwy and hybrid shaft other than weight.
Lower launch? Shorter length?

Thanks in advance.

I tried the baffler when it first came out and I enjoyed hitting it quite a bit.  I've always chosen long irons over lofted woods and they didn't have any shafts I liked so I didn't end up gaming one.  I kind of regretted that after they were discontinued and decided to make a baffler out of the new f8+ 4-5 fwy because head size is so similar and it has the rails. Ordered it short of standard to 41.75 (same as f6 baffler) and had them adjust the swing weight to stock.  

I got mine a couple weeks ago and all I can say is wow!  Most versatile club I've ever had in the bag. Somehow works equally well out of the rough and off the tee.  For someone who has never even owned a 5 wood I'm really wishing they made this in a 7 wood.  I think that says something! If you are like me and dislike hitting it lofted metals and hit them too high, give this a shot! At it's size it's almost more hybrid than fairway but it doesn't have the left tendency most hybrids do.

... I have been playing a Yardbird Tour Aeroburner that I have been content playing for about 4 years now but kind of a love/hate relationship and always looking for something equally solid that provided a higher trajectory without adding spin. Not a F6 but the F8 5/6 shortened to 42.5* with a 75gm Even Flow Blue has just blown me away. So easy to hit from any lie with the baffler rails and gives me exactly what I was looking for ... a higher trajectory without added spin. This revolving spot in my bag is final solidified and I will not even be looking at fairway woods until I wear this F8 out.

Played my first round with the Baffler over the weekend, and this thing is a keeper. I haven't played a 5 wood in 14 years, and decided to swap my TMB 3 iron for the baffler.

I have some heavier shafts in my ebay cart, but I was pleasantly surprised with the stock shaft in X flex. I was able to flight it high/low depending on how much of a descending blow I put on it, and was able to reach a couple of par 5's in two off a 230 carry. Didn't even bother putting this club on a tee, and I was blasting shots with a ton of confidence off the deck on shorter par 4s. This club has been an eye-opener for me.

Cobra legitimately created on of the all time fairways with this club. It falls in the elite category with the V-Steels of the world, 07 burner tps of the world and rbzs of the world. A true game changer that greats so much versatility and innovation the likes we have not seen in several years now.

Best club in the bag PERIOD.  They will have to pry this thing from my cold dead hands.  I tried to replace it with the M2 tour HL but it was too high.  I tried a bunch of hybrids and only one of them came close to the distance and control i have with this club (tour exotics hybrid).  This thing is a gem.  I have the Aldila Rogue Black shaft in it.  I'm thinking of switching to the Hzrdus yellow.  Other than that, this club is the s***!

Did you try it against the traditional 15* M2?

So mine just arrived today ..hours before a blizzard is set to dump a foot of snow on Massachusetts! So how do you all like to setup your weights/loft with it ? I'm keeping my 14 degree 3 wood in the bag to use off the tee on 1 or 2 holes per round . Plan on taking out my 18 degree hybrid and replace it with the baffler.

Apologize if this has been spoken about, but what do people who own this think about rails with regards to sweepers?  I've only been able to hit one off mats and was curious about turf interaction.

I liked mine so much I bought a second one for a backup.  I have mine set at 17.5 with a HZRDUS Black 75 and play it at 42.5.  I carry it about 240-250.  I use it of the tee a lot since I can work it both ways with ease.  I have finally found the perfect fairway wood.

Ok. Finally got to hit my new F6 baffler at my lesson today . Just hitting off a mat I can tell it's going to get thru the turf with ease ..the effect of the rails is instantly noticeable.  I had it set at 16 degrees with weight forward.  On Trackman I was hitting it 230 with super high flight but not over spinning.  Spin numbers were around 3300 -3500. It is so easy to hit!! Going to love this club .

Been looking around on eBay for one to try and they are few to be found and expensive. Must be keepers. Any comments on this vs a f8?

It would compare more with F8+.  I haven’t hit one yet. F6 is so good I really don’t want to replace it anytime soon.
