Cobra to release red, white and blue AMP Cell driver
With the U.S. Open coming up fast, Cobra has unveiled plans to release a limited edition of its AMP Cell Pro driver decked out in red, white and blue.
The tri-colored drivers will be available on June 1, but only 600 will be made. Each will be marked with a '1 of 600' decal on the sole for authenticity.
''We love driving excitement around our brand with limited edition products,'' said Cobra Director of Product Marketing Jose Miraflor. ''The golfing community is so patriotic, especially around the U.S. Open. We felt it was the perfect time to introduce a limited edition color to our AMP Cell Pro Driver line.''
The patriotic powersticks will come complete with all the features found in the regular AMP Cell Pro drivers – most significantly Cobra's MyFly Technology, which allows golfers to optimize their distance and trajectory by selecting among several lofts with a simple wrench.
Cobra's E9 Face Technology with dual roll provides an elliptical face shape with a canted bulge and roll that improves both distance and accuracy on mis-hits from heel to toe and above and below the centerline. Advanced Material Placement and Cell technology work together to enable a 12 percent larger face for faster ball speeds and more stability, even on mis-hits.
The Cell band, which wraps around the crown, shows golfers where the bulk of the head's weight is distributed and helps position the Center of Gravity for the kind of ball flight low handicappers prefer.
The red, white and blue driver is available in Stiff and Regular flexes and features an Aldila RIP Phenom shaft. The grip, headcover and even the wrench match the head's patriotic color scheme. The driver carries a suggested retail price of $499.
