Baffler F6 that good?


Recommended Posts

I just felt the need to bump this post because I love the Baffler so much. Clubs come and go, but this thing just stays right there in the bag all these years. I recently bought a slew of new clubs and debated switching to a hybrid or driving iron to fill the yardage gap of the ole F6 Baffler. It’s just so damn versatile I decided instead to hunt out a new head and get a different shaft. I put a Fuji Pro 2.0 TS in what was essentially a “NOS” head I got off eBay. She’s just such a joy to hit. Any lie, many yardages, high shot, low shot, doesn’t matter. That is all, just some love for an old friend of mine, the F6 Baffler.

Got one of these about a month ago. Had the stock 60gr stiff red tie in it. Was a good club the first couple rounds I played it. Got a aldila tour blue 85gr stiff from a cobra 3 wood and cut it down to play at 41.75 no tipping. Now it's a phenomenal club. Hit it 4 times last round. Even set at 18.5 I'm almost hitting it as far as my 3 wood off the deck. But tons more height. And it's an easy club to work both ways. Super easy to turn over though.

I've had mine since it came out, I didn't like the stock shaft and swapped it out to the Hzrdus Red 75s shortly after getting it and since then, the club has been my most reliable & fun to hit club in my bag. Now I like my driver better just because its longer, but the Baffler is the go to club when I need a shot.

I just put one in my bag with a HZRDUS Smoke Black 70 and am really liking it. Hit it pretty high but it doesn't balloon on me, and it goes straight. I'm someone who really likes open-faced fairway woods, and with this one cranked to 16* I find it sits open enough for me. This is the only club that sits between my driver and 3 iron, and its versatility is where it shines. Works as advertised out of tough lies, but it's also been great off the tee when I need to hit a specific yardage. Think it might be a keeper.

Played baffler XL hybrids for quite a few years. They were replaced this year. Best hybrids to me are any in the cobra baffler line.

I just picked one of these up myself. Traditionally, I have struggled with fairways woods and generally play without them and use a 17* hybrid instead. but I've been experimenting with a mini driver as a strong 3 wood for tee shots when the driver is too much. And I was drawn to the f6 baffler as a max distance club off the deck but that can get more height and softer descent into greens than my hybrid. 

 

 I haven't gamed it yet as the stock stiff shaft feels like a noodle on the range. but it is incredibly easy to get the ball up in the air. Probably going to throw a UST PFV2 or Tour Blue in it and give it a go. Would play it 17.5 or 18.5 and keep my 3H at 20 or 21*.

Grabbed one, but trying to figure where to slot it in.  Where does it fit best...strong 5w at 17.5 or strong 7w/3h at 19.  I do like the small compact head, since I am playing a stronger fairly large 3wood.  

I’ve been playing a baffler since they came out. I have a Hzrdus Red 75s in it and it’s just a rocket. I’ve been playing mine at 16, but have played it at 17.5, 18.5 and 19 and to be honest the last 3 all went fairly close in distance with just the launch angle being slightly different. Now at 16 it’s a rocket launcher and almost as long as most of my buddy’s 3 woods at standard length set ups.
 

Im currently  in the process of adding a traditional bigger headed 3 wood to the bag at 15-16 and leaving the baffler at 18.5 or 19 for my fairway shots. Only because I have an extra spot  in the bag.

It's still the only compact fairway from Cobra with rails and front to back weight adjustability.  When I had the F6 Baffler, it snuggled in at 17.5° between the 14.5° 3-4W and 20.5° 3-4Hy.  That made it difficult to gap for a 26-27° 5 iron, so I got a 4-5W at 23.5° but that just passed the buck to the 6 iron.  Eventually I split the difference in hybrids at 22°, and that's still my Cobra setup though I've replaced the F6 Baffler with F9 Tour (which is a worthy successor).
