Hey everyone, thanks for stopping by tonight. Today we’ve got a review for you of the Cobra AMP Cell irons. Read the full review below! Enjoy!

Look

Cobra created a fantastic looking line of irons this year, beginning with the AMP CELL. Similar to the other Cobra products, golfers will have their choice of colors, including the stock silver, or custom selection of orange, blue or red. While the iron is a silver color, the cavity of the club head features the unique silver, orange, blue or red color distinction – now iconically “Cobra”. The AMP CELL technology distributes weight from the club face and body to create a perimeter weighting and positions CG behind the sweet spot. The AMP cell utilizes a medium width top line and sole. Additionally, Cobra uses a V-Skid Sole design thats purpose is to improve ball to turf interaction. In the address position, all the Cobra irons set up really nice and inspire confidence. Overall, the Cobra AMP CELL iron is a good looking stick that should attract some attention.

Performance

I tested the stock silver AMP CELL iron with the True Temper Dynalite 90 shaft in stiff flex. The entire lineup of Cobra irons was a pleasant surprise for me. The ball jumps off the face and easily produces a straight ball flight. The AMP CELL creates a solid trajectory with the ability to still work the ball, perfect for a player who still wants to hit knock downs throughout the course. The AMP CELL naturally creates a high ball flight. As result, the ball stops quickly on approach shots. Additionally, the distance on the AMP CELL is solid, not the longest iron available, but still longer than the average iron.

Feel

The Cobra AMP CELL feels light at address and throughout the swing with a D3 swing weight in steel and D1 in graphite. The Dynalite shaft weighs 90 grams while the MRC Cobra AMP CELL Graphite Shaft weighs less at 55 grams. With a slightly larger than average top line, contact feels very solid and forgiving. It almost feels like there is a larger sweet spot on the AMP CELL when compared to other irons. The only knock is they feel a little light for my preference, but a custom shaft option could change the weighting of the irons, or a little lead tape.

Value

The Cobra AMP CELL continues Cobra’s tradition of quality products at a competitive price. The irons maintain a retail price of $699 for a set of 8 irons in steel or $899 for a set of 8 irons in graphite. The irons look exciting and perform beyond expectations. Cobra should start to develop a following from players of all ages and ability levels for these irons, and there success this year really is a testament to their hard work. Cobra hit a home run with the AMP CELL irons this year, and should definitely be a club worth considering for your next set of irons.

    Lead tape doesn’t change how heavy a club feels or the actual weight of the club. It only changes swing weight.
