Cobra’s AMP Cell Pro Driver is the driver you will see in the hands of Cobra staffers in 2013.

It’s 20 cc’s smaller than the AMP Cell, and because of its more neutral center of gravity position, which mimics Cobra’s well-received ZL Encore driver that debuted in 2012, it is also much lower spinning.

Like most drivers on the market, the AMP Cell driver’s lofts are actually higher than marked (a 9.5-degree driver loft loft is usually at least 10 or 10.5 degrees). But the AMP Cell Pro has true lofts, which range from 7.5 degrees top 10.5 degrees and make the Pro lower launching than the AMP Cell as well.

Instead of the two draw settings at 9.5 degrees and 10.5 degrees on the AMP Cell Driver, the AMP Cell Pro driver offers two fade settings at 8.5 degrees and 9.5 degrees. Since Cobra’s MyFly technology does not change the face angle when changing lofts, the fade setting is created by giving the club a flatter lie angle (for the non-pro version, the draw setting is achieved by making the club more upright at address). The draw-and-fade settings change the lie angle by two degrees, which Cobra’s tests show to create about 8 yards of sidespin.

The stock shaft, a Mitsubishi Rayon KuroKage, is lower-launching, lower spinning and stiffer than the AMP Cell’s Fujikura Fuel shaft.

  1. The Amp Cell Pro driver is easily the best sounding and feeling driver in the golf shop right now. It is also very long. As long as R1 just better feeling and sounding.

  2. I really want this when it comes out but i am unsure about the basic cell or the cell pro driver, i prefer a draw setting on a driver head though, but prefer a lower loft such as 7.5-8.5…
    else, could i buy 2 heads, cell 460cc and cell pro 440cc? would both be interchangable on a single shaft??
