Cobra’s King F6 Baffler and King Utility Iron

Published

on

Cobra King F6 Baffler

Cobra’s King F6 Baffler is one of the most intriguing new fairway woods of the year. It can be adjusted to the loft of either a 4 wood or 5 wood (16-19 degrees), and features rails on its sole that are designed to improve turf interaction, particularly from less-than-ideal lies.

It’s more than just a get-out-of-trouble club, however. Two adjustable weights (15 grams and 3 grams) can give the club either a lower-spinning or higher-spinning ball flight, helping golfers fill a specific yardage gap in their bag.

The King F6 Baffler ($239) has a stock length of 41.75 inches, making it slightly shorter than most 4-5 woods on the market. It will be available May 1, and off-the-rack models will feature Matrix’s Red Tie Q4 (L, R, S, X).

When Fowler hasn’t had the King F6 Baffler in the bag in 2016, he’s opted for Cobra’s King Utility iron, which we identified as a Show Stopper from the 2016 PGA Merchandise Show. The hot-faced iron is novel in that it allows golfers to adjust its loft and lie through an adjustable hosel, instead of the usual loft-and-lie machine.

The King Utility’s high-tech design includes a hollow head, and wide sole and a 67-gram tungsten weight. All three move weight lower and deeper in the club head to create the high trajectory most golfers want from their longest iron. A thin, L-Cup club face made of 455 stainless steel helps improve ball speed, offering golfers more distance as well.

Depending on a golfer’s needs, the King Utility can be adjusted from 18 degrees to 21 degrees, and also features three draw settings that make the iron more upright.

“This club is perfect for the golfer whose last iron stops at 4 and needs a 3 iron, or the golfer whose longest iron stops at a 3 iron and needs 2-iron distance somewhere throughout the round,” said Tom Olsavsky, Vice President of R&D, COBRA Golf.

The King Utility ($199 steel, $219 graphite) will be available May 1 with either KBS’ C-Taper Lite (S, X) or Aldila’s Rogue Black 85 (R, S, X)

    You can ‘t change the loft mid round of an iron. That probably goes without saying, but according to the quote, “somewhere throughout the round” Am I wrong here?

      He was not saying that “somewhere throughout the round” you can change the loft, he is saying that “somewhere throughout the round” you may need that extra club outside your longest iron.

    love that f6 baffler. Have played previous baffler models and all were very easy to hit, almost SGI type category.

    Bravo to them for chasing usefulness over distance(club length) with the baffler. Give the average golfer a club they at least have a chance of hitting…consistently.
