Cobra T-rail ReviewHey everyone, thanks for stopping by, today we’ve got a a review of the Cobra T-Rail Baffler Hybrid line. Enjoy!

Looks

You gotta love the new Cobra Baffler T-Rail Hybrid. With it’s traditional dark color, flared with streaks of bright yellow, it’s really hard to miss out on the golf course. Cobra is known for developing great hybrids over the years, and in my opinion, the Baffler T-Rail continues this tradition. The men’s version features a black club head, silver club face with florescent yellow alignment aids on the club head. The stock shaft is a black and silver Graphite Design Tour AD shaft with a bright yellow grip. The ladies Baffler features an all silver club head, shaft with bright green accent alignment marks and green grip (but we didn’t give this one a test). The shape is fairly consistent with previous baffler models. The baffler sets up nicely at address and screams “easy-to-hit”.


Performance

The Baffler T-Rail lives up to the tradition of solid Cobra hybrids. I tested the 2 hybrid 17 degree Tour AD stock shaft in stiff flex. The club produces a high ball flight. It is super easy to hit from a variety of lies, including tight fairway lies, and medium to light rough. In fact, the shallow face combined with the tungsten weighted rails makes it extremely easy to hit from tight lies. The slightly oversize club produces great shots on well struck shots and is extremely forgiving on off-center hits. I was also very impressed with this clubs accuracy and consistency. I have tested a number of hybrids this year, and Cobra has produced a club that matches the performance of the phenomenal TaylorMade RBZ hybrid.

The only negative I’ve seen is the bright yellow grips get dirty quickly, however, that should hardly deter anyone from purchasing the Baffler T-Rail.

Feel

The Baffler T-Rail Hybrid makes a solid “click” sound at impact, and even off-center hits felt solid. The club features a heavier feel with a D3 swing weight. A high strength 455 steel face is utilized to deliver a thinner and lighter face for increased ball speeds. The ball jumps off the face at impact and overall, was just a pleasure to hit.

Value

The Baffler T-Rail really is a club that’s a good fit for a broad variety of players at many different skill levels. With a price tag of only $159 (which is significantly less than its competitors), its easy playability, and fun rail technology, this club is great deal for anyone looking to replace their long irons.
