Cobra Golf Builds off of Popular Baffler Rail Technology to Create Its First All-Hollow IRON Hybrid Set – T-Rail

CARLSBAD, CA – Cobra Golf®, a leader in golf club innovation, unveiled today T-RAIL (Transitional Rail) its first, all-hollow iron-hybrid set, taking super game improvement clubs to the next level. T-RAIL combines the forgiveness of a COBRA Baffler® hybrid with the precision of an iron in a one-of-a-kind set of clubs (available for men and women) that are designed for anyone looking for a better game.

The COBRA T-RAIL irons fuse a hollow, hybrid shape with an iron face and topline, creating an iron-hybrid design that delivers the perfect blend of distance, forgiveness and accuracy.  A hollow body construction creates a lower, deeper CG than traditional cavity-back iron designs allow and makes getting the ball airborne and on the desired target line easier than ever before.  The Baffler Rails make their way into the irons, providing excellent turf interaction for more speed and stability out of every lie.  A high-strength, forged steel face designed with E9 Technology features a thin pocket from heel to toe to enhance ball speed and distance on off-center hits.   

The innovative design of the T-RAIL combo set combines a hollow, iron-hybrid construction in the 5-PW with a 4-hybrid to make a 7-piece set for max forgiveness, high launch and improved gapping through the set. T-RAIL Irons are available in both men’s and women’s set make-ups.

The Men’s T-RAIL Graphite 7-piece Combo Set ($899), in a black/blue colorway, offers a 4-hybrid and 5-PW irons in RH or LH options, with COBRA ULTRALITE 50g graphite shafts (Stiff, Regular and Lite) and COBRA Lamkin REL midsize grips. A 5-hybrid and 6-hybrid is also available through custom for the ultimate combo set with T-RAIL performance. The Women’s T-RAIL Graphite Combo Set ($899), in a black/lilac colorway, comes with a 5-hybrid and 6-PW, SW irons that utilize COBRA ULTRALITE 50g graphite (Ladies flex) shafts and COBRA Lamkin REL grips in midsize. The Men’s & Women’s T-RAIL irons are also available in steel shafts as a custom option with COBRA ULTRALITE (97g) shafts.
