Cobra AMP

4 posts in this topic

I was at Dick's picking up some of the HEX Black balls while they're on sale and saw the new Cobra AMP driver and iron in the demo room (I was trying out the Adams CB3).  I never would have considered Cobra before just based on they looked a little goofy to me in the adds and commercials.

To my surprise, they were actually nice clubs.  The driver had the stiff Aldila 55g shaft, and the head had more of a classic look at address.  It swings really well and felt really nice when striking the ball.  The iron was a little on the bulky side for my taste, but it had a really nice feel to it when striking the ball.

I'm not in the market for new clubs anytime soon (just bought a used G15 with the Aldila Serrano stiff shaft from my friend, and really like it... and play Mizuno MP52s which are only a few years old) but I think I'll at least consider Cobra (especially the driver) in the future.

Anyone else have any thoughts on them?

I'm not really a fan of Cobra gear, but the AMP definently is their best club, I hit it once and it felt pretty good, but for the price, better drivers are out there !

The irons are great. I went into Golf  Galaxy this past February to try the Mizuno JPX 800s, but hit the AMPs much better. More distance than my TM Burner 2.0 irons as well.

I just bought the Cobra Amp today at Dicks and was blown away.  Now I haven't hit tons of drivers but this sucker launched the ball and it felt so good.  Now I also modified my setup with the driver today after watching a video on youtube.  My drives were right down the fairway [or not far to the right] and distance was excellent.

I even like the sound it makes, my Nike Sumo sounded like I was hitting the ball with a iron skillet.

    • First round foursome clubchampionship was yesterday. First round is to cut the field to 16 pairs, format Stableford without handicap. You get 3 points for a birdie, 2 for a par, 1 for a bogey. Worse than bogey is zero points. My playing partner had the tee off on hole 1 and hit it left in the water. I had a shot avoiding some trees at 140y from the flag and hit it at 3 feet, par.  After 5 holes 9 points (1 bogey), but then a streak of 3 bad holes and still 9 points. But then 3 pars in a row and all together 11 pars and two bogeys (24 points) was enough to end 5th (best team 31 points).  Next weekend we will play against the team that ended 13th. That will be matchplay. 
    • Does it make sense to write ".........combined together"? Why not just write "............combined"? Let's not call the kettle black. Anyway..... the following are excerpts from The Australian Golf Club's Dress Code. They are not typical of what is expected in Australia, but  some of the snootier clubs are very strict and do little to change the stuffy reputation of the game. ‘Sporting attire’. Collared shirts which must be tucked in at all times. Tailored shorts to the knee, with a belt, may be worn. Closed in shoes must be worn with socks at all times (see Definitions for appropriate socks).  Men - Collared shirts which must be tucked in at all times. Trousers must be tailored and worn with a belt. Tailored shorts to the knee, with a belt, may be worn. When wearing shorts on the course, Members must wear long socks or short white socks which are either plain or which bear only a Golf Club logo. Anklet type socks are not acceptable. Shoes must be of a type which have been specially manufactured for the playing of golf.  Jeans of any description are not acceptable anywhere in the Clubhouse or on the Course. Children 12 years or younger are exempt.  If you turn up here wearing socks with a small Nike logo they will sell you a pair of plain white ones for about $30.
    • May 27th:- 10 mins full swing practice (Driver). Moved the tee further forward in the stance, and concentrated on sliding the hips to initiate the through swing.  
    • Whether I score better riding vs. walking depends on who I am with. I have two friends who are VERY slow players and if I am in the cart with them for some reason it cost my 5 strokes a round.
    • Playing there next year. My buddy is getting married there, we have discussed this very topic and have agreed to re-tee as we will never play there again. Plus with our scores it really doesn't matter an 8 there will match a couple others on the card.
