2009 Woods Buyer's Guide
|Cobra Baffler Pro |
Built with a dual-weighting scheme that enhances the heel-toe weighting, these hybrids also have a fast-back crown that helps push the CG lower and
farther back. This combines to create a higher trajectory and added spin for high, soft-landing shots. Another cool feature is the Aldila VS Proto shaft
and the variety of loft options. Better players will like the Pro model.
Lofts: 16°, 18°, 20°, 23°, 26°, 29°
|Mizuno MX 700 |
Built with a robust titanium clubface and a steel body, these hybrids are designed to produce a low and deep CG that results in a high, soft-landing ballflight. The variable face thicknesses deliver great distance control, and the titanium crown ensures the weight is right where it’s needed: low and away from the clubface. Better players will appreciate the shotmaking capabilities.
Lofts: 17°, 20°, 23°, 26°

|Nickent 3DX RC Ironwood |
Nickent’s new 3DX RC Ironwood brings the company back to its roots with an easy-to-hit, easy-to-get-airborne hybrid that will appeal to both high and
low handicappers. Two XW tungsten-polymer weights in the back of the club create a forgiving setup and increase the club’s MOI by 25 percent over the original 3DX Ironwood. Comes in a variety of shaft options.
Lofts: 14°, 17°, 20°, 23°, 26°, 29°
