Cobra Amp Cell (Driver)

Recommended Posts

Who plays this driver and how do you guys like the performance? Price just dropped from $299 to $199 and I picked it up after trading in 2 clubs so I got it for $100.  I REALLY enjoy this club.

I have put 1 in the bag (silver) along with the Cell irons (orange). I've only hit the driver a few times and the irons should be here today or tomorrow.

I've been using it since Mar-April 2013, can't remember exactly when I bought it. Honestly I only bought it because I had been using the AMP 3w and hybrids and I liked those. With that in mind I went to the retail stores to check out just about everything 2013 in the spring and besides the few that I hated due to the sound they pretty much all performed the same for me. The Cell driver led to a new Cell 3-4w and a couple of hybrids that I still have but have dropped in favor of the 588 Cleveland Altitude 4-6. I had my Cell driver shortened and the shaft plays a little soft with the tip weighting. I plan to check out some heavier shafts late in the year after I spend the first part of winter hitting the lessons hard again.

Played two rounds with my new Amp Cell (silver) driver. Really nice feel, hit them straight and long. Have it set to 10.5D to counter a slight fade I recently picked up, seems to work. (Still have to work on that fade, back for another lesson). I haven't played to much with the different settings yet, will take it to the range for that, probably tomorrow. All in all I'm happy with the new driver but I really don't see it as a vast improvement over my Cobra S2 that I was using, but like I said I haven't played with it that much yet.

I actually purchased an amp cell driver before my titleist 913 and it was remarkable. Extremely forgiving on mishits. Cobra posts the E9 technology you can read about online. The only reason I decided not to stick wit it was the numbers I was getting as far as distance and spin. Otherwise I would strongly recommend this driver to any amateur.

Having an issue with hitting everything off the toe. Either a draw or HOOK! Cut it down to 45" to see if I don't make better sweet spot contact.

I know this is a couple months old but I wanted to see if there were any other thoughts. I recently ordered one when I found it new for $149+ free shipping. Had to wait until it hit my price point! I haven't seen very many bad things on it, other than a couple "anti-Cobra guy" reviews.

Not that it much matters at this point as I will play this driver for the next 4-5 years, but would like to hear more if any of you own it.

    • Clearly it's a lot of both, but I've always wondered that if golf is such a mental game, why do players only seem to practice the physical side.  And how does one even practice the mental side?  I've known a few players, not that many, who didn't have the most athletic or orthodox swings but were really consistent and knew how to score.  Were they not better golfers than players with long, aesthetic but unreliable swings?   What do these players who learn just enough to hit playable shots know that most golfers don't?   Comments?  Is the game in your head or in your hands, and how does your approach to improving at this game (or the mythical optimal approach) reflect your answer?
    • FWIW he played his third double round in three weeks.  90 and 96.
    • It's a disappointing end (w/ or w/o "closure"), but I've got no hate for Dan. Yea, even w/ the same final outcome he could have handled things better to the people following him. But really it never cost me anything and I was entertained when he was still at it (regardless of any issues w/ his approach to the project and/or how he portrayed it). He also made it easy to follow his story... I remember checking out his stats page every few months, and it was kinda fun to just see it. I'd prob still give it a google if I heard he was trying for the Senior tour in the future.
    • I had 2 in my last round on thick and grainy poa annua greens.  Both were from over 30 ft.  One was uphill and against the grain.  I thought I hit it hard enough to get there but came up 10 ft short.  I was first to putt so didn't get a read on the grain.  The other was a left to right breaker and I didn't realize the grain was also running that way.  Ended up about 10 ft below the hole. 
    • I agree with @Buckeyebowman. I was practising my swing on the range yesterday and was putting some business card in front of the ball. Very pure ballstriking almost no mishits, straight ballflight I swept the card away every the time. I was focusing on my swing and the card. Then we got on the court. First hole perfect ball striking I was able to focus behind the ball and on my swing.  Then second hole I made a mistake with my driver (know the reason now). But anyway my confidence was getting smaller. 200m to the hole. So I got my hybrid out "I have to hit this ball 200m very hard now". I still tried to focus behind the ball and the shot was OK. But far from perfect. From now on from hole to hole ball striking got worse. At the end I even hit in the ground in front of the ball with my sand wedge which never has happened to me before. My head was going "You have to hit this ball now!" No loose swings as on the range before. And no thinking about the loose swing going to the target. The more frustrated I got the more I focussed on the ball. I was noticing in the end I was focussing in front of the ball and on my swing but when I made the actual downswing my eyes got back to the ball which leaded to terrible shots. I noticed the eyes really jumped.  What this means to me. I have to practise to change my focus now every time on the range and make this a priority. I also tried widening my focus which really helped. But its a different task to this on the actual court it seems.
