Review: Cobra AMP Cell Hybrid
Great looks and great feel don’t necessarily mean great performance. But the Cobra AMP Cell hybrid 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 like the driver and 3-wood the lofts seem to play higher than marked. I lowered the “My Fly” loft to 16* and now this club came to life. It played how I normally play an 18* hybrid. Over the course of the next 4 rounds I started hitting the trajectory and distance I was looking for. I wasn’t quite as consistent direction wise as I wanted with this hybrid, but the feel and trajectory were very consistent.
I think my consistency problems came from the stock shaft which I’m not really sure what it is. It just says Cobra on it but the biggest issue is that it is only 58 grams in the stiff flex which is really light for a hybrid shaft. I think this threw off my swing a little with this club. If I concentrated on my tempo and control I hit this hybrid very well, but when I just went hard after the ball, it was a little wild. 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 hybrid is a very solid hybrid head for 2013. It offers great looks, amazing feel and trajectory. I think a reshaft might be in order to tighten up the consistency in terms of control. I think the slower swing speed golfer might really like this club and shaft combo, but if you swing hard and fast, you are going to need a different shaft. But considering what a change took place when I reshafted the driver, reshafting this hybrid might be a huge change too. In general the whole AMP Cell line seems to hit slightly higher than the stated lofts so that can be a real benefit for some who need more elevation. With the right shaft and the “My Fly” technology dialed in, you can get the most out of this club. The Cobra AMP Cell hybrid; Looks good, Feels good and Plays good. 2.0!
