Cobra Hybrids News, Advice and Buyers Guide
Hybrid clubs, AKA: Rescue clubs because they "rescue" players from hitting the difficult long irons, sit in that area between metal woods and irons. Like metal woods, they have wider soles that allow the club to bounce off the turf for ease of contact, but they have the qualities of a long iron because they give the ball the needed loft and backspin to hold the greens.
Although they are easily mistaken for "woods" due to their rounded crown and wide sole, their extremely high lofts and shorter shafts make them perform like regular iron clubs.
With their customary flair for new technology, Cobra Golf brings their innovative spirit to the fore with their new line of hybrid golf clubs for 2013. With last year's success of the Baffler T-Rail Hybrid still ringing in the air, Cobra quickly follows up this year with a better version: the 2013 Baffler T-Rail Plus Hybrid along with a new line of adjustable hybrids, the Cobra Amp Cell Hybrid that showcases the company's latest technology.
Cobra 2013 Baffler T-Rail Plus Hybrid
The 2013 Cobra Baffler T-Rail Plus Hybrid still carries the multi-material construction design of the earlier model that featured the innovative tungsten T-Rail sole design that allowed it to bounce off the ground and still "interact" with the turf enough to resist twisting as it traveled "along a rail" at the moment of impact. Along with the low center of gravity afforded by the heavy tungsten, this club's unique sole design causes the ball to make square contact consistently higher on the extra hard steel insert of the clubface.
The result is crisper contact and a penetrating ball flight that has a higher trajectory with minimal side-spin. The T-Rail Plus now features a shallower and bigger "oversize" clubface design as well for even better control during off-center hits.
Both the 2013 Cobra Baffler T-Rail Plus Hybrid and the 2013 Cobra Baffler T-Rail Plus Ladies Hybrid is available in the right-handed and left-handed models for clubs from 2H to 7H loft.
Cobra AMP Cell Hybrid
The 2013 AMP Cell Hybrid is designed to complement Cobra's AMP Cell Driver and Fairway Woods family. Understanding the player's need for a consistent swing throughout the golf bag, Cobra takes adjustability to a higher level with the Cobra AMP Cell Hybrid. With Cobra's new AMP technology, instead of adjusting his swing to suit a particular club in his bag, the player can now adjust individual clubs to suit his particular swing. He can now chose from 4 regular loft settings and 2 draw settings in order to have a more consistent ball flight pattern from his clubs throughout the set without having to adjust his swing for the difference in shaft lengths.
And like the AMP Cell Driver, the AMP Cell Hybrid also employs Cellular Weight Distribution and E9 clubface technology for better balance and better ball contact. Its hard stainless steel construction makes it rugged and durable for added confidence on any type of surface. Available for Cobra hybrid clubs with 2H to 5H loft and in a left-handed version, these AMP Cell Hybrid Clubs are paving the way for the future of golf.
