In celebration of the 40th anniversary of the infamous Cobra Baffler, the California equipment maker has released a new line of drivers, fairways and hybrids under the brand name Baffler XL. Of all those offerings, company technicians seem particularly taken with the driver. They say that its biggest selling point is its clubface, where they not only have increased the effective face area but also lowered the center of gravity to make the driver longer and straighter as well as easier to hit. How big an increase? Cobra officials say the Baffler XL face is 17 percent larger than the one on Cobra’s Amp Cell Offset driver, and add that they have boosted the effective face area by 21 percent.
