    Well finally got this thing on the course last weekend, and it was one of the few highlights in an otherwise rough round. I have mine set at 19 with a matrix code 8 shaft in it. It complements my f7 3 wood so well. It has taken the 5 wood spot in my bag and falls right in next to the 4 iron well. I love the heavy head, compact look and ease out of the junk. This thing will probably be my favorite club In the bag over the season

    Always wanted to try this club. I carried the 5-7 Bio Cell+ for years (still do from time to time) and its one of my favorite clubs ever. I read something that said that the Baffler was the same head with the rails added to the sole.

    I'm going to have to snag one the next time I see one used at PGA SS. They usually price them around $59. I had one in hand a couple of weeks ago and passed. After reading all this, I need to try one for an extended period.

    Best club in the bag PERIOD. They will have to pry this thing from my cold dead hands. I tried to replace it with the M2 tour HL but it was too high. I tried a bunch of hybrids and only one of them came close to the distance and control i have with this club (tour exotics hybrid). This thing is a gem. I have the Aldila Rogue Black shaft in it. I'm thinking of switching to the Hzrdus yellow. Other than that, this club is the s***!

    Question for all you baffler fanatics.

    Are you playing a heavy fwy shaft in your baffler or hybrid shaft? Play mine as a 5wd.

    I pulled an old aldila ahina shaft from a 910F to put in mine and it’s worked well just curious what others have done.

    I don’t know a lot in terms of the difference between a fwy and hybrid shaft other than weight.

    Lower launch? Shorter length?



    Thanks in advance.

    I tried the baffler when it first came out and I enjoyed hitting it quite a bit. I've always chosen long irons over lofted woods and they didn't have any shafts I liked so I didn't end up gaming one. I kind of regretted that after they were discontinued and decided to make a baffler out of the new f8+ 4-5 fwy because head size is so similar and it has the rails. Ordered it short of standard to 41.75 (same as f6 baffler) and had them adjust the swing weight to stock.



    I got mine a couple weeks ago and all I can say is wow! Most versatile club I've ever had in the bag. Somehow works equally well out of the rough and off the tee. For someone who has never even owned a 5 wood I'm really wishing they made this in a 7 wood. I think that says something! If you are like me and dislike hitting it lofted metals and hit them too high, give this a shot! At it's size it's almost more hybrid than fairway but it doesn't have the left tendency most hybrids do.

    ... I have been playing a Yardbird Tour Aeroburner that I have been content playing for about 4 years now but kind of a love/hate relationship and always looking for something equally solid that provided a higher trajectory without adding spin. Not a F6 but the F8 5/6 shortened to 42.5* with a 75gm Even Flow Blue has just blown me away. So easy to hit from any lie with the baffler rails and gives me exactly what I was looking for ... a higher trajectory without added spin. This revolving spot in my bag is final solidified and I will not even be looking at fairway woods until I wear this F8 out.

    Played my first round with the Baffler over the weekend, and this thing is a keeper. I haven't played a 5 wood in 14 years, and decided to swap my TMB 3 iron for the baffler.



    I have some heavier shafts in my ebay cart, but I was pleasantly surprised with the stock shaft in X flex. I was able to flight it high/low depending on how much of a descending blow I put on it, and was able to reach a couple of par 5's in two off a 230 carry. Didn't even bother putting this club on a tee, and I was blasting shots with a ton of confidence off the deck on shorter par 4s. This club has been an eye-opener for me.

    Cobra legitimately created on of the all time fairways with this club. It falls in the elite category with the V-Steels of the world, 07 burner tps of the world and rbzs of the world. A true game changer that greats so much versatility and innovation the likes we have not seen in several years now.

    So mine just arrived today ..hours before a blizzard is set to dump a foot of snow on Massachusetts! So how do you all like to setup your weights/loft with it ? I'm keeping my 14 degree 3 wood in the bag to use off the tee on 1 or 2 holes per round . Plan on taking out my 18 degree hybrid and replace it with the baffler.

    Apologize if this has been spoken about, but what do people who own this think about rails with regards to sweepers? I've only been able to hit one off mats and was curious about turf interaction.
  • chch3chch3 Advanced Members Posts: 806 ✭✭
    I liked mine so much I bought a second one for a backup. I have mine set at 17.5 with a HZRDUS Black 75 and play it at 42.5. I carry it about 240-250. I use it of the tee a lot since I can work it both ways with ease. I have finally found the perfect fairway wood.

    Ok. Finally got to hit my new F6 baffler at my lesson today . Just hitting off a mat I can tell it's going to get thru the turf with ease ..the effect of the rails is instantly noticeable. I had it set at 16 degrees with weight forward. On Trackman I was hitting it 230 with super high flight but not over spinning. Spin numbers were around 3300 -3500. It is so easy to hit!! Going to love this club .

    It would compare more with F8+. I haven’t hit one yet. F6 is so good I really don’t want to replace it anytime soon.

    So I FINALLY got to take it out on the course . Holy bleep!!! The hype is LEGIT . It is so easy to hit. I was able to play a draw and a fade with ease. Last hole par 5 ..blocked my drive up the right into soggy rough . My 2nd shot i was just trying to play a little fade and get back in good position . I made really steep contact and I still got it 200 yds out in to fairway . Huge ,muddy divot ..I had no business getting the quality of shot out of the contact i made. I'm already in love with this club .

    Gents, I heard you loud and clear but I didn't believe in the unicorn. Until yesterday. Good lord you were right. This thing was great from the first swing.



    Do you play it as your 5 wood? I found it is long. Almost too long. Giving me a fit because I'm a 3 wood / 5 wood / 4 iron guy.

    I play mine at 18.5 with the heavy weight in the back. Nice towering shots.

    I threw in a Diamana ahina shaft i had in my old 910F for the time being. Playing at 41" Will prob swap it out for a 2KXV blue soon

    ... Earlier in this thread I fell in love with a shortened F8 5 wood. Long story short, that prompted me to try the F8 3 wood and it was equally as good and I now play the F9 3 wood. Of course it is much longer than the shortened F8 5 wood, leaving a gap in my bag. So I picked up the F6 Baffler, put in a heavier and shorter shaft and could not be happier. Love it from fairway bunkers or any kind of bad lie and when I need a 200-210 shot over a bunker or water and a high flight that stops on the green. I was in the rocky Phoenix desert last week and had 210 to a pin tucked over a bunker on a par 5 and needed 200 to clear the bunker with a high lip. Landed a few feet past pin high and stopped after a hop and trickle. I honestly don't know of any other club I own that I would have attempted that shot. I view it as a cross between a fairway wood and a hybrid, producing the best of both.

    Have to buy something else with it... but 15% off $100 or more on Rockbottom this weekend... so yeah, that is pretty awesome so I went ahead and pulled the trigger on this from them as well.



    I haven't been able to find anything I love in that spot in the bag and have always been a better fairway wood player than hybrid... so here's hoping!

Love it from fairway bunkers or any kind of bad lie and when I need a 200-210 shot over a bunker or water and a high flight that stops on the green. I was in the rocky Phoenix desert last week and had 210 to a pin tucked over a bunker on a par 5 and needed 200 to clear the bunker with a high lip. Landed a few feet past pin high and stopped after a hop and trickle. I honestly don't know of any other club I own that I would have attempted that shot. I view it as a cross between a fairway wood and a hybrid, producing the best of both.
    Sam- I just ordered one from RBG after reading this thread. What length of shaft do you have in it? Thanks






    ... I shortened it 1" so I am playing it at 40.75" with a Kuro Kage Black 75gm shaft. Good luck with yours!

    I did not expect to like the stock shaft, as I don't care for light shafts in hybrids and fairway woods, but this shaft works well for me. Nice high launch and great distance.

    Should have asked-- Loft setting? I have a BioCell+ #3 wood. Looking at this to bridge gap to my 22 degree hybrid.

    I'm around your HI. The baffler is my favorite clubbing my bag because it's so versatility out of different lies.



    What do you mean heavy though the ball? Are you hitting down on it too much?

    Not hitting. Down. I play the ping g400 sf Tec fairway which has a lighter swing weight than most. So compared to that Baffler seemed heavier through the ball.

    The baffler does have a heavy head, hence the shorter playing length.

    I love mine but I don't like the stock shaft. I definitely want to make a change at some point and tinker with it...definitely something heavier.

    What loft setting is everyone playing on their F6 Baffler?

    ... I have an 18* UDi 2 iron I hit off the tee, quite a bit longer than my F6 set at 18.5*. I view it as a unique trouble club for bad lies, including fairway bunkers, and I also use it when I need a high soft landing shot onto a green.

    Currently playing mine at 17.5. I’ve seriously considered having two of these in the bag - one at 16 and one at 19. That’s obviously ridiculous so I’m working through a testing of the F6/F7/F8 to compliment as a 3 wood. I carry D, 3w, 5w (Baffler), 4i, 6-pw, 52, 58.



    At first I also liked the stock Matrix made-for Red Tie shaft but when you then swing your other upgraded shafts you may find, like me, that it’s a bit whippy and light. Reminds me of the old made-for Fubuki shafts.



    I play to a 7-8 in the summer. Swing speed around 100 with the driver. When I put a heavier and slightly shorter shaft in the Baffler the dispersion got that much better.
