Cobra AMP Iron Review
There have been mixed reviews about the new look of Cobra Golf. At the very least, Cobra is now the trendiest company in the golf industry. The younger generation has been very receptive to the bold colors while others have not been very excited. It looks as if Rickie Fowler and all the other young stars will continue to be the face of Cobra Golf. The AMP iron resembles Cobra’s biggest star, Rickie Fowler. The grips are a bright orange with and orange and black stock graphite shaft. The AMP features an orange cavity insert, iron number and bottom groove on the club face. The AMP iron has a slight off-set. The sole is a little thicker while the top line looks more like a player’s iron with a very thin top line. While not everyone will like the bright colors, I really like the appearance, the club looks solid, easy to hit.
There were no surprises, the Cobra AMP irons performed as expected. I tested the Cobra AMP irons with a regular flex graphite stock shaft. The stock shaft is the Cobra AMP by Aldila. The AMP irons are not the longest iron I tested, however, they are very solid. They performed along the lines of the TaylorMade R11 and Ping i20. The long irons were forgiving and easy to control. They provide the ability to work the ball, but I enjoyed the ease of producing straight shots. I was able to consistently control the trajectory with the short irons. The long irons produced a mid to high ball flight. The irons performed well from all lies while still producing a straight shot. One of the best aspects of the AMP irons is their versatility. Players of all ability levels should be able to handle this iron.
The Cobra AMP irons have a swing weight of D2 in graphite and D3 in steel. The AMP irons have a nice weight and you can feel where the club is throughout the swing. Impact feels very smooth and the club is very forgiving. Off center hits still fly relatively straight and without a huge loss of distance. Cobra did a nice job with their first iron since they were bought by Puma. A very solid club and should do very well this season.
Cobra Men’s AMP Hybrid/Irons – (Graphite) 3-4H, 5-PW cost $524.99 only through Amazon.com for 8 irons with a graphite shaft, while the steel shaft comes in at $699.00. The AMP irons look great and perform well. They are a very solid and diverse club that will cater to players of all ability levels. The price tag comes in slightly less than some of the competitors. Men and women should really enjoy the AMP iron.
