It’s hard to find a golf bag without a hybrid club these days, especially among amateurs like you and me. Heck, even a number of the pros prefer what the ease-of-use hybrids offer in comparison to long irons. This newest build from Cobra Golf continues that trend thanks to some innovative ideas under the hood.

As you’ve seen in other Baffler series from past seasons, this year’s model features their patented “rails” on the sole of the clubhead. These provide smooth turf interaction at impact, which should help eliminate chunky shots and miss-hits. This also helps you get the ball airborne quickly, which is an area in which many of us could benefit.


Like other competing clubs, the Cobra Baffler XL hybrid features a low center of gravity and high MOI, adding to the club’s versatile usability and consistency. While hybrids are meant to provide a distance boost to those who need it, they should also be designed for accuracy and precision. This hybrid accomplishes both.

While the club is only available in one color clubhead right now (blue), we wouldn’t be surprised if Cobra releases some alternate hues in the near future. The Cobra Baffler XL hybrid will retail for $159, making it a mid-price option that could look nicely in your bag.
