Key technology:

The new Baffler set, which can also be bought as a full iron line-up, uses key technologies from the Baffler hybrid to make them easy to hit. This includes a railed sole, which reduces turf drag and helps players to launch the ball higher. Baffler hybrids feature a wide, railed sole and a shallow face, making them forgiving and easy to launch.

Will suit:

Players seeking added forgiveness and distance throughout the set.

Verdict

GM verdict: With the success of Baffler hybrids, it?s no surprise to see the name and technology moved into ultra-forgiving irons. The irons perform like hybrids, thanks to a very high flight and plenty of forgiveness. The offset design will particularly suit players who slice the ball. The hybrids also deliver strong performance, and boast a wide sole that helps to prevent heavy shots. But... forgiveness is achieved in the form of an unusual-looking head, particularly in the long irons. PGA pro verdict: Why anyone wouldn?t want to play with hybrids these days is a mystery, and these Baffler clubs illustrate the point. They perform beautifully, giving a consistent and high flight, combined with great yardages and impressive feel. The irons have a large offset, but this only enhances their performance. The Cobra Baffler combo set is well worth considering for players searching for greater consistency, and to help the game become more enjoyable.
