    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 .

    I got mine a couple of weeks ago, and threw a Nunchuk in it. I'm using it as my 4 wood set to 16*, and the club is great! I should have got one sooner!

    The baffler changed my golf game. I have since put an F7 3 wood and the F9 driver in the bag. It’s a game changer.

    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.



    WOW

    I use it as my only fairway wood currently. Gonna try it at 17.5 this season but played it at 16.5 last season. Go directly into a 21° 3 iron after that

    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!

    ... 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 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.

    Put me on the list of I LOVE this club!! Really good from all types of lies. I have it at 16.5 degree loft and with my 20 degree Adams red-- I feel pretty good about my gaps... NOW-- not crazy about my swing. Seems like the lay-off from shoulder surgery has me very inconsistent. VERY...

    They are ok. I had one for about a year. Pretty small head, so prob not what a high handicapper would enjoy looking down at!
    I saw them somewhere like Rockbottom a while back for $79 new. One of the courses i play quite often has a 235 par 3 w/ elevated tee and green and i prob hit the green 80% of the time with my baffler. Prob should have kept it but i only hit it once a round!!!

    Mine just arrived from Rockbottom and I have to say I'm a huge fan so far (and can't beat the price). I've been struggling for something in the 5 wood / Hybrid / 3 irons space for a long time and I think I may have finally found the answer. I've never been able to find a hybrid that worked for me and this seems to fit me much better out of the gate.
    I used to game little 7 woods back in the day (before hybrids were a thing) so the head shape feels great to me; also I think the baffler tech is actually doing something (compared to most golf tech which seems to... well not).
    Just have the stock shaft and grip right now (weight back I think? that is how it comes out of the box right?). May try and figure out something a bit heavier eventually for the shaft but liking it a lot right now with the short shaft.
