Cobra Baffler T-Rail Fairway Wood Review
Hi again everyone – thanks for stopping by. Today we will be reviewing the Cobra Baffler T-Rail Fairway Wood.
Everything with Cobra Golf is bright and bold, and the Baffler T-Rail fairway wood is no exception. It has a similar color combination as the Baffler hybrid. The club head features a black design with a florescent yellow dual alignment. The grip is also florescent yellow. The oversize head has a shallow clubface and tungsten rails to produce high launching shots. Personally, I have enjoyed the color combinations of Cobra Golf and the design of Baffler T-Rail looks really easy to hit. The appearance of the Baffler fairway rates in at 9 out of 10.
I tested the Baffler T-Rail 16 degree 3 wood with a stiff Cobra RIP stock shaft. Distance was average with the Baffler T-Rail. However, 16 degrees of loft is more like a 4 or 5 wood compared to products with other companies. The Baffler T-Rail is designed as a game improvement club. Players who typically spray the ball will benefit from the extra forgiveness that results from 16 degree loft. Also, the club helps straighten out ball flight. Higher handicap players might feel like they are generating more distance with the Baffler T-Rail fairway woods. Cobra has produced fairly easy to hit fairway woods over the years. The shallow face of the Baffler T-Rail makes it extremely easy to hit. In addition to the shallow face, a lower and deeper center of gravity launches the ball from just about any condition. As a result, the Baffler T-Rail delivers a consistently high ball flight. Overall, the club performs solid for players of any ability level and rates 9 out of 10.
The Baffler T-Rail fairway wood produces a dull sound at impact. The club feels solid and produces minimal sidespin, which cuts down on wild shots to the left and right. The Baffler is not the most versatile club since it produces high and straight shots. However, that is a combination the majority of golfers need. The heavier weight of the club feels great (D3 swing weight) and rates 9 out of 10.
While the Baffler T-Rail is a game improvement club, high or low handicap players will benefit from it’s playability. The best way to sum up the Baffler T-Rail is “user friendly.” The club head design and performance are similar to the Ping K15. With a price tag of only $179 the Baffler T-Rail is a steal and priced under much of the competition. Players searching for new fairway woods need to give the Baffler T-Rail a few swings. The Baffler T-Rail fairway wood combines an appealing price point with excellent performance giving it a 10 out of 10 value rating.
