Video: Cobra AMP Cell Driver vs. ZL Encore

Published

on

Updated Jan 17, 2013

We took the Cobra AMP Cell driver for a test drive at Miles of Golf at Ypsilanti, Mich., to get an early look at launch angle, spin rate and ball speed, and to see if Cobra’s MyFly and Smart Pad technologies worked as advertised.

We tested it on a Trackman against the Cobra ZL Encore driver (9.5 degrees) and crunched the numbers.

Take a look and go into the forums to see the discussions about this and the other new Cobra launches for 2013.

The Cobra AMP Cell driver had a stock Fujikura Fuel X Flex shaft. It is 45.75 inches long, weighs 63 grams, and is a mid-torque shaft with a high kick point.  The ZL Encore had a stock Fujikura Motore F1 shaft. Like the AMP Cell, it is an X-flex shaft of the same length, but it weighed in a little lighter at 55 grams. The Motore F1 shaft has a mid-launch, mid-spin profile.

    Still Waiting your evaluation of the Cobra AMP.
    The sudden change to the re shafted ZL, and no further mention of the Driver at bar?

    The Cobra AMP Cell is one of the best new drivers on the market. I’ve had mine for about 6 weeks now the results have been amazing.

    The most pleasing thing about the driver is the extra carry you get off the tee. Because of this you get extra distance as well. It is so easy to hit and the feel you get from a solid hit is great.

    I would recommend the Cobra AMP Cell to any golfer out there looking for a better performing driver.

      It is now more than 3 months after you had this Cobra AMP driver, how is it doing? Still good?

      By the way what is your handy cap?

We spotted new shallow-faced CF218 fairway woods (15 and 17 degrees) from Fourteen Golf on the range at TPC San Antonio on Tuesday at the 2018 Valero Texas Open, each equipped with Graphite Design TS918 shafts. Also on the range from the company were new FH “Future Heritage” Forged V1 wedges with a different, more raw look than the ones we saw in October at the Shriners Open.

Check out more photos below, and see what GolfWRX Members are saying about the clubs in our forums.
