Cobra Amp Cell

Cobra Amp Cell

I was excited to attend a Cobra demo day at Cilandak driving range recently to test out the new colourful AMP CELL range by Cobra Golf.

At first glance the whole range looks very impressive: the driver, fairway woods, hybrids and the iron sets. The golfer can choose from four colours throughout the range: White, Directoire Blue, Barbados Red and Vibrant Orange.

Cobra Amp CellFirst up: the driver. Its adjustability is vast, with six separate loft options to choose from: 8.5, 9.5, 10.5, 11.5, 9.5D and 10.5D. The driver also offers SmartPad technology, which Cobra ensures will assist the golfer in aligning the club-head horizontal to the ground at address, promoting a correct set up. I set up to a neutral 10.5, in the blue colour, with the stock Fujikura Rombax 55g Regular shaft. The Driver not only looks impressive with its bright colours, one can match their golf attire appropriately. The Driver was easy to hit, and Cobra golf has successfully manufactured a forgiving driver, which can cater for a wide range of golfers.

The six options of loft will help club fitters and coaches ensure their players are more likely to produce their optimum ball flight. The stock shaft seemed somewhat more flexi than the norm, so players with faster swings may want to consider upgrading to a firmer custom shaft. The driver is also available in the PRO model which comes with six different loft options: 7.5, 8.5, 8.5 fade, 9.5, 9.5 fade and 10.5. The stock shaft for the PRO model is the UST Mamiya Attas 4U and will be more appropriate for the more accomplished golfers with faster swing speeds.

The fairway woods, along with the four different colour choices, offer two unique clubs: the 3/4 wood or the 5/7 wood. Each club can be altered with six different loft variables, for example the 3/4 wood has the following options: 3, 3+, 3 draw, 4 draw, 4 and 4+. This clever adjustability will help the golfer fine tune any uncertainty with yardages, and you can assure there are no large gaps in your golf bag. It is also rather fun adjusting the club at the driving range and finding your favourite loft to use on the golf course.

Cobra Amp CellCobra Golf in Indonesia operates a very unique demo prospect for golfers: the First Tee Trial. Golfers can select any new AMP CELL product and try them on the course for their round on the day with no obligation to buy. It’s an opportunity to test out the product on the course away from the driving range. If you choose the right loft you may find yourself on more fairways and further down the fairway. A recent study in the golf industry revealed up to 80% of golfers may be using the wrong loft on their drivers, which is costing them distance. Cobra seems to be keen to make an impression with the new AMP CELL range. Their prices are very competitive, and you get good value for money, whilst standing out on the tee box as well!
