COBRA Golf is set to the launch their new AMP line of products - driver, fairways & hybrids, and irons. And it looks like they'll carry the orange them that they had in their new Trusty Rusty to their Amp line. With the inevitable signing of Rickie Fowler to a 13 club deal these clubs will be popular with most and the orange is even starting to grow on me. My favorite is the look of the AMP driver and the hybrid, I'm a sucker for a nice looking hybrid. These will be available in Canada January 26th and hopefully Ottawa Golf Blog will get a chance to review a few of the pieces from the line.

Press Releases COBRA’S AMP DRIVER DELIVERS CUSTOMIZED DISTANCE AND ACCURACY

COBRA’s AMP Driver packs technology, style and flair into one must-have club

 

CARLSBAD, CA (January 9, 2012) – COBRA is excited to announce the new AMPTM Driver featuring E9 Face TechnologyTM with dual roll and AMPTM Speed Tuning, delivering customized distance and accuracy to golfers around the world. The AMP Driver also brings color and attitude to the golf course with black PVD and vibrant orange details on the shaft, club head and grip.

“The AMP Driver features technology focused on delivering superior distance and accuracy,” said Tom Preece, Vice President of Research and Development at COBRA PUMA GOLF. “The titanium 6-4 head with a semi-forged, milled Ti face features E9 Face Technology with dual roll to provide more distance to shots above and below the centerline.”

The AMP Driver also features Adjustable Flight Technology (AFT)TM, providing golfers with the option to set the face angle as Open, Neutral or Closed to optimize ball flight for better distance and accuracy. The Aldila RIP® Speed Tuned shafts have progressive weight design and El flex profiles that customize performance for various swing speeds. AMP Speed Tuning works in conjunction with the shaft to optimize each loft differently to deliver the best performance for a given club head speed. The premium Lamkin® R.E.L. 3Gen® Grip is vibrant orange to match the cub head design, packing the AMP Driver with style, flair and technology to help improve a golfer’s game.

The AMP Driver is also available in an offset design to reduce the effects of a slice as well as provide improved distance and accuracy. The AMP Offset Driver squares the head more quickly through impact to reduce the effects of a slice, promoting high, draw-biased ball flight. The unique crown alignment feature also helps golfers aim the driver on target.

E9 Face Technology with dual roll

COBRA’s E9 Face Technology with dual roll utilizes an elliptical shape face that gives the AMP Driver a 30% larger Sweet Zone, resulting in more distance, accuracy and forgiveness in shots hit from the low heel to high toe. COBRA tested golfers hitting more than 25,000 shots and discovered that the majority of golfers hit shots across the face in this canted, elliptical pattern. We redesigned our clubface to use this phenomenon to the golfers’ advantage. We’ve added a new canted bulge with dual roll to now provide added distance and accuracy to the shots hit above and below the centerline.

COBRA LAUNCHES AMPTM IRONS FOR GREATER DISTANCR AND ACCURACY

 

CARLSBAD, CA (January 9, 2012) – COBRA’s new AMPTM Irons feature Advanced Material PlacementTM , a progressive face and cavity design and v-skid sole that provide greater distance and accuracy with a new level of customization. The AMP Irons are available in an iron set and combo set.

“Our AMP Irons are perfect for any type of golfer looking for improved distance and accuracy,” said Tom Preece, Vice President of Research and Development at COBRA PUMA GOLF. “We studied thousands of golfers’ impact patterns to develop our E9 Face Technology and now we’ve improved upon that with our multi-alloy design. The two features work together to provide increased distance in long irons, consistent short irons as well as improved feel and forgiveness.”

E9 Face TechnologyTM and a progressive face and cavity design optimize the performance of each individual iron to improve distance, feel and forgiveness based on golfers most common impact patterns. AMP Irons #3-7 feature a 2-piece multi-alloy design, utilizing a 17-4 High Strength Steel face plasma welded to a 431 stainless steel body for a thinner face and hotter long and mid irons.

The V-Skid sole design in the new AMP Irons drastically relieves heel-toe sections to reduce turf drag and add to the sole’s versatility. The higher bounce front section provides forgiving sole interaction, a lower bounce middle section keeps the leading edge at a proper height and the rear sole relief has the weight benefits of a wider sole but cleaner turf contact.

COBRA AMP Irons

Advanced Material Placement • Multi-alloy design strategically positions weight to provide explosive long irons and consistent short irons. Full cavity TPU layer dampens vibration and provides exceptional feel. E9 Face Technology • A progressive face and cavity design optimizing distance, feel and forgiveness in each individual iron. V-Skid Sole Design • Promotes consistent distance and accuracy with a versatile mid-width sole that narrows in the toe and heel.

The COBRA AMP Irons are available in a Steel 8 piece set (MSRP $749) or Graphite 8 piece set (MSRP $849). Individual AMP Irons with Steel shafts (MSRP $93.99) and individual AMP Irons with graphite shafts (MSRP $106.99) are also available. The graphite irons feature the AMP graphite shaft engineered by Aldila and steel irons feature a True Temper Dynalite 90 Steel shaft. All irons feature the Lamkin® N-DUR 3GEN® grip.

The AMP Irons will be available in Canada on January 26th. For more information on COBRA, visit us at www.cobragolf.ca. Stay up to date with the latest products, events and COBRA Tour athletes at Facebook.com/cobra and on our Twitter handle: @cobragolf
