The Cobra King F6 Baffler Fairway was born when Rickie Fowler's coach suggested he play a 5 wood with rails.
The current World Number 5 took this suggestion to Cobra's Tour Rep Ben Schomin who took up the challenge. A prototype was created by taking Fowler's existing Bio Cell 5 wood and welding rails to the sole. As soon as he hit the new club he liked it so much that he put it into the bag and work started on the King F6 version.
The Baffler name comes from the iconic rail system that has featured on Cobra products for 40 years and is now blended with the adjustable weighting found on the King F6 fairways.
The rails greatly help with turf interaction as the front of the rail improves turf forgiveness from any lie, while the back of the rails help the club to glide out of the turf.
The King F6 Baffler has a two-piece metalwood construction with a forged 455 stainless steel face welded on to a 17-4 hollow body. The higher strength steel in the face allowed engineers to make the club thinner and lighter to increase speed and forgiveness.
The club comes with two Centre of Gravity (CG) positions and 15-gram and 3-gram moveable weights to fine tune trajectory whilst the Cobra MyFly8 hosel gives eight loft positions: 16°, 16.5°, 16.5° draw, 17.5°, 17.5° draw, 18.5°, 18.5° draw and 19°.
The club is also shorter at 41.75 inches, compared to a standard 5 wood length of 42.5 inches, allowing a steeper and more aggressive angle of attack when needing to get the ball into the air quickly.
