COBRA LAUNCHES AMP IRONS FOR GREATER DISTANCE AND ACCURACY
January 21, 2012
CARLSBAD, CA (January 1, 2012) – COBRA’s new AMPTM Irons feature Advanced Material PlacementTM , a progressive face and cavity design and v-skid sole that provide greater distance and accuracy with a new level of customization. The AMP Irons are available in an iron set and combo set.
“Our AMP Irons are perfect for any type of golfer looking for improved distance and accuracy,” said Tom Preece, Vice President of Research and Development at COBRA PUMA GOLF. “We studied thousands of golfers’ impact patterns to develop our E9 Face Technology and now we’ve improved upon that with our multi-alloy design. The two features work together to provide increased distance in long irons, consistent short irons as well as improved feel and forgiveness.”
E9 Face TechnologyTM and a progressive face and cavity design optimize the performance of each individual iron to improve distance, feel and forgiveness based on golfers most common impact patterns. AMP Irons #3-7 feature a 2-piece multi-alloy design, utilizing a 17-4 High Strength Steel face plasma welded to a 431 stainless steel body for a thinner face and hotter long and mid irons.
The V-Skid sole design in the new AMP Irons drastically relieves heel-toe sections to reduce turf drag and add to the sole’s versatility. The higher bounce front section provides forgiving sole interaction, a lower bounce middle section keeps the leading edge at a proper height and the rear sole relief has the weight benefits of a wider sole but cleaner turf contact.
