Review: Cobra King F6 Baffler
The Cobra King F6 Baffler comes with a very nice stock set-up. The Matrix Red Tie shaft is very smooth and stable. It offers a mid launching flight that is very easy to elevate. It is a little shorter length at 41.75″ which really helps with confidence and control. The spin is very controlled with this club. It doesn’t balloon, but hits the ball on a high, but strong trajectory.
I didn’t mess around with the weights between the rails. I was really happy with the results I was getting with the weight to the back, but if I were going to drop my 3 wood in favor of this club, I’d move the weight forward to drop the spin and lower the launch so I could get a little more distance. But I really liked the higher launch and softer landing which is closer to a hybrid. (which is the club it replaced in my bag.)
The Cobra King F6 Baffler is really solid and you are going to want to find a spot in your bag for it, but which slot might be the struggle for some golfers. If you are not a fan of your current 3-wood or hybrid, this is a perfect replacement for either one or potentially even both. If you have a yardage gap between those clubs you might find this a fit there too. But since it isn’t a pure 3-wood replacement or a pure hybrid replacement you might not be sure how it fits into your bag. No matter the club, figure out the yardage it hit and see how your distance spacing works best.

The Cobra King F6 Baffler will hit the ball straight, high and accurately from any lie. You can take some confusion out of what club to hit on narrow holes, tough lies or when you simply need a “go-to” shot. The Baffler is a unique club, that could fit into a couple slots in your bag, or even serve as a 2 club replacement. The combination of rails, weights and shorter shaft make this a very forgiving club to put in your bag. The Cobra King F6 Baffler will take some confusion out of some normally intimidating shots.
