Cobra Baffler Rail Hybrid

From Golf Magazine (May 2011)
Category: Better-Player Hybrids
We tested: 3/H (19°) and 4/H (22°) with Cobra Motore Baffler Rail H graphite shaft

Key Technologies: The maraging steel face insert with "9-point" design creates a bigger sweet spot, more ball speed and length. Ten percent of the total weight is repositioned away from the face in a low, deep location for higher MOI and greater forgiveness.

OUR TESTERS SAY: One of the most preferred hybrids; easy-to-hit club that performs well across the board.

PROS
PLAYABILITY: Notably high ball flight that can be altered to suit different situations; makes short work of tough lies due to the handy sole design.
ACCURACY/FORGIVENESS: A straight hitter that seems to minimize sidespin; some testers say its high flight helps to stop the ball on the green quickly, even on slight mis-hits.
DISTANCE: Consistently provides ample carry yardage; very good when used as a driving club from the tee.
FEEL: There's enough information to tell a center hit from one made on the heel or toe; rails create extra stability through impact.
LOOK: Attractive black-and-silver color scheme; pleasing shape is easy on the eyes at address.

CONS
Not as workable as some others; impact sensation isn't its strongest attribute.

From Sports Illustrated Golf+ (February 7, 2011)
The hybrid also has a four-way rail sole along with Cobra's E9 face technology. In addition, there's a high-strength face insert that repositions 10% of the weight low and back to promote faster ball speed and improved launch.
