When it came to creating a set of irons to round out its new line of AMP Cell drivers, fairway clubs and hybrids, Cobra didn't hesitate to go bold. So, when choosing a set of AMP Cell irons, golfers can pick from four different accent shades, allowing them to color-match them with other AMP Cell clubs or create a personally mixed set. For traditionalists, silver irons are the stock option, while the other choices are the Vibrant Orange, Directoire Blue and Barbados Red that are also available in the AMP Cell drivers, fairways and hybrids.

Color choice isn't all the AMP Cell irons have going for them, though. They also feature a metalwood face-weld construction, E9 Face Technology and AMP Cell technology as well as a V-Skid sole design, vibration management system and speed channel to help provide enhanced distance, forgiveness and accuracy.

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, says Cobra, and helps to generate faster ball speeds for improved distance and forgiveness. E9 Face Technology helps to expand the sweet spot across nine spots on the face and improve distance, feel and forgiveness regardless of where on the face the ball is struck.

The internal cell weighting in the AMP Cell irons enables precise Center of Gravity placement, while 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 impact shock and sound for exceptional feel.

The new irons (3-iron through lob wedge) come in right- and left-handed models in both steel and graphite shafts. Eight-piece sets (4-iron through gap wedge) carry a street price of $699 for the steel set and $899 for the graphite set. The steel irons feature True Temper Dynalite 90 shafts and the graphite irons use Cobra MRC AMP Cell shafts. All irons feature Lamkin REL .600 grips designed specifically for them.
