COBRA Golf has launched the all new AMP CELL Irons, featuring metalwood face-weld construction, E9 Face Technology, AMP Cell technology, a V-Skid sole design, vibration management system and a speed channel.

The AMP Cell irons are engineered to provide explosive distance, maximum forgiveness and pinpoint accuracy.

“Our AMP Cell Irons take the best technologies from our research in irons and combine them with metalwood-type construction,” said Tom Preece, Vice President of Research and Development. “Bringing these technologies together provides golfers with higher, longer, more penetrating ball flight, superb accuracy, optimized CG placement and ultimately, the best in performance.”

The AMP Cell 4 through 7 irons feature a metalwood construction with a thin, high strength steel face that is welded to a softer 431 stainless steel body. This optimizes the irons to create a COR zone, controlled weighting and provides a lighter face; all working together to generate faster ball speeds for improved distance and forgiveness.

Cobra’s proprietary E9 Face Technology gives the AMP Cell Irons a progressive face and cavity design to optimize the performance of each individual iron to improve distance, feel and forgiveness based on golfers most common impact patterns.

The internal cell weighting in AMP Cell irons enables precise CG placement, moving weight from the face and body to create perimeter weighting which positions the CG behind the sweet spot. This provides high moment of inertia (MOI) for greater forgiveness.

The V-Skid sole combines a higher bounce leading edge with heel toe relief, resulting in a sole that is versatile for better players, yet forgiving for mid and higher handicappers. This works with the vibration management system to reduce unwanted vibration and sound for exceptional feel.

Just like the AMP Cell Drivers, Fairways and Hybrids, golfers will have a choice in color when it comes to the AMP CELL Irons. While silver will be the stock option — AMP Cell irons will also be available in orange, blue and red, which will be available through select retailers and custom orders.

The Cobra AMP Cell Irons are available in right and left handed models in both steel and graphite, 3-L. 8 piece sets (4-G) are available with a street price of $699 for the steel set and a street price of $899 for the graphite set. The AMP CELL steel irons feature a True Temper Dynalite 90 shaft and the graphite irons use a Cobra MRC AMP Cell Shaft. All irons feature a Lamkin REL .600 grip designed specifically for AMP Cell Irons.

The AMP Cell Irons will be available Feb. 8, 2013.

    and I do believe that the REP said that they will be coming out with a forged head, but we really didn’t talk about that too much. The irons (by the way) really have a lot of weight down low, but you don’t really see that mass at address.

    I had the chance to hit these at a demo day about two weeks ago. I am a 3 hdcp. All they had to hit was a 4 iron and a 7 iron. I was hitting HIGH gentle cuts, shot after shot. My normal ball flight is lower, and I fight a draw. I did not like the 4 iron as much as the 7 iron. Based on known targets on our range, I think I hit these irons further than ANYTHING I have hit before. My guess is that the 7 iron was going about 170-175. I really thought the shaft was a good fit for a guy like me, with a 95 mph driver swing speed. I will most likely buy these irons when they come out.

    For Dalemc81: Regarding your question as to whether there will be a forged version, they already have the Cobra AMP Forged irons, which GolfWRX reviewed on Sept. 11, 2012.
    Thus, I doubt they’d be coming out with yet another forged model this year.
    The review is still on the homepage, if interested.
