Cobra Amped Up On Amp Cell Irons

Listen to Tom Preece, Cobra’s vice president of research and development, talk about the many features of his company’s new Amp Cell irons, and it is hard to believe one club could boast so much technology.
First, he points to the metal-wood construction utilized in iron Nos. 4 through 7, each of which has a thin, high-strength steel face welded to a softer, 431 stainless steel body. That is designed to create a high COR (Coefficient of Restitution) zone and controlled weighting, which is intended to work with the lighter clubface to generate faster ball speeds for improved distance. In addition, Preece explained, the Amp Cell irons employ Cobra’s proprietary E9 face technology to give the line a progressive face-and-cavity design to optimize the performance of each club. An internal weighting system enables the club-maker to locate the Center of Gravity (CG) more precisely behind the so-called Sweet Zone to create better launch conditions while moving weight from the face and body to the perimeter to produce a higher Moment of Inertia (MOI) for better forgiveness. Preece said these irons also have a VSkid sole that combines a higher-bounce leading edge with heel-toe relief for greater performance among a wider range of players, as well as a vibration-management system for enhanced sound and feel. As is the case with other parts of the Amp Cell series, these irons will be available in a range of Cobra-esque colors. Silver is the stock option, but golfers also can buy these with Vibrant Orange, Directoire Blue and Barbados Red details.
