    For those endorsing the COBRA F6 BAFFLER ... Have you tried the Cobra F9 fairways (standard and tour)? I loved these and am going to buy the tour, which really keeps my spin under control, but I'm curious how these stack up to the F6?<br />
    <br />
    <br />
    f6 baffler is a UNICORN.<br />
    <br />
    I tried the F9 Fairway Tour. I'm not quite sure what it was, I think sound? Either way I didn't like it as much as I do my F6.. Something about the f6 allows me to flight it and let it run out if I need to get out out there on the fairway. But also lets me hit it on Par 5's into the green and can launch higher.<br />
    <br />
    Unicorn. If you find one, don't give it up.

    If I could replicate the unicorn properties of the F6 Baffler in a 3W my life would be complete. The reality is a Baffler set at 16* is still better than any 3W I've ever hit and I regularly set it up that way, drop the 3W, and throw in a hybrid behind it. I hit my F6 3W just a touch farther, especially off the tee, so it's hard to permanently drop it, and the Baffler at 17.5* or 18.5* is so special that I prefer it in that spot. I've considered just carrying two Bafflers.<br />
    <br />
    The club is special.

    Update: I want to thank you all for the thoughts and recommendations. So.....I go to Golf Galaxy with a $50 gift card and $50 off $250 coupon ($100 total “in my pocket”) prepared to walk out with something shiny and new. I always go to the Used section first to poke around. Long story short: I walked out with an 17.5* R7 TP with the Diamana 83 Blueboard stiff for......$29.99. I couldn’t pass it up. Almost felt like it was meant to be. It’s in 8/10 shape, has a smaller head(I can’t get along with larger ones off the deck, mental thing), and has the Blueboard, a shaft I always loved. For that price I feel like it’s a worthwhile gamble.

    Did you hit it in the simulator and get good numbers ? I did the same hitting demo 3 woods in a pgass in Vegas. Wanted to get a new 3 wood but hit a used 917 f2 better than all the new ones.

    My choice for a 5 wood is the TM 200 series... I have a 2,3 and 5 and I can hit them both ways and high or low... just need to change shafts cuz I just don't need the S flex anymore... I was on that "eternal search" for decent fairway woods for years and ended up with these about 15 years ago and never looked back. I have gotten and used others but these have always been my favs....<br />
    <br />
    Peace<br />

    I still have a set of them in the closet. Some of the greatest fairway woods of all time. I don't play them anymore but they bring back a lot of great memories.

    i like my 5W PING G400<br />
    <br />
    if you play correctly your driver, <br />
    in my opinion 3W is for better players ( for use on the deck principaly),<br />
    for the majority 4W or 5W is better

    Just got on the G400 train 5 wd big minus. Fitter was pissed I don't get 410, but I hate red, so what of it? ��<br />
    <br />
    Anyway, I set to play this way. Very accurate with my driver, so if it's not a driver hole - this thing works or 3i. Takes out the "I think I can hit my 3wd 250 off the deck" question too. <br />
    <br />
    Left me alot of flexibility through irons making this move.

    Jack Pearsall finds it hysterical that Cobraddicts think those stupid rails on their Bafflers help them in the rough.<br />

    The 410 5 wood is long and forgiving. Easily the best 5 wood Ive tested. AND Ive tested a lot of them. Best 5 wood since the 906F2.

    5 wood is my favorite club. All time favorite was a TM 200 smoothie with an Accra SE80. Incredible workability but a sweet spot the size of a dime. Now, I can’t imagine a more balanced, accurate and workable wood than my Cobra F7 baffler / Chrome Elements. So much confidence with it.

    Any 2020 updates? Cobra Baffler F6 or F7 are pretty hard to find. No one seems to sell them.

    I am using an older Cally Big Bertha III steelhead with a graphite shaft. Great off the deck and the rough. It also does a great job as a rescue club.
