Review: Cobra AMP Cell 3-wood
Great looks and great feel don’t necessarily mean great performance. But the Cobra AMP Cell offers great playability. I started with it very stock neutral set-up and had great success. I was hitting the ball very straight and very high. It had good distance, but seemed to play more like a 5-wood than a 3-wood. I lowered the “My Fly” loft to 13* and now this club came to life. It played how I want my 3-wood to play and I was getting the distances I need out of my 3-wood. Over the course of the next 4 rounds I found this to be very consistent in terms of control and distance. I never had to worry about over-shooting my target or coming up short. I can’t say it blew me away distance wise, but it certainly kept up. It really was more about the control and consistency that made it play good.
The stock shaft is a “made for” version of the Fujikura Fuel shaft. It is a only a 60 gram shaft so it is on the lighter side of fairway wood shafts, but it seemed to hold its own and offered the signature kick of the Fuel shaft. The grip and headcover are pretty standard stuff, a Lamkin REL 3Gen 360 grip and a long headcover with a cutout handle.
The Cobra AMP Cell 3-wood is a very solid club for 2013. It might not “wow” you with distance, but it does offer great looks, amazing feel and control and consistency which is what really is most important in a 3-wood. The whole AMP Cell line seems to hit slightly higher than the stated lofts so that can be a real benefit for some or you may have to play a lower than normal loft to get your desired trajectory. That really is the beauty of the “My Fly” technology. At the end of the day the Cobra AMP Cell 3-wood, “Looks good, Feels good and Plays good!”
