AMP stands for advanced material placement, which means that weight is strategically placed in the head of each club to help improve performance. This is the case throughout the Cobra AMP irons, with the long irons designed to produce impressive distance and the short irons to offer better consistency. The face in the longer irons is made from steel, which is milled thinner to provide more power at impact.
The Cobra AMP irons will suit anyone after a mid-size head that looks stylish.
The whole AMP range represents a real turning point for Cobra. Some early products after leaving Acushnet caught the eye, but didn’t blow us away, but the AMP irons and woods are hugely impressive. The styling is very modern, but the actual head shape is traditional, a combination which works well together. Shots with the longer clubs feel very powerful off the face and produce impressive distance through the air. The different designs of the long and short irons mean there is a slightly different gap between the 7- and 8-iron compared with the other clubs in the set. The orange line on the bottom groove is a little distracting. PGA pro verdict Throughout the set these clubs were very powerful and the ball flew a long way. Added weight in the heel and toe also helped to make them very forgiving. There wasn’t too much offset on the clubs, which I like and helps the club to offer a wide appeal. I actually liked the orange line on the bottom groove as it helped me with my alignment. The powerful ball flight in the short irons will take a bit of adjusting to for many players and you might need to add an extra wedge in the bag. Overall this is an excellent product though and I would recommend the set to all standards of golfer. (John Jacobs, Golf Monthly Top 25 Coach)
