COBRA have released their new AMP CELL Pro Irons; a better player iron designed with the help of Ian Poulter and Rickie Fowler.
The new irons were tweaked with tour help from Fowler’s original Prototype AMP Pro model to offer exceptional feel, precision, workability and looks in one package.
The set will have cavity back long irons and muscle back short irons, though an all muscle back set is available through custom order.
At £749, the 3-PW set aren't cheap, but they are assembled with quality parts including True Temper Dynamic Gold S300 shafts and Golf Pride Multi Compound Cord grips.
They continue the recent trend of tour irons away from the traditional blade design, but they do manage to maintain the sleek looks of a better player club.
The AMP CELL Pro Irons feature forged carbon steel for Tour precision and feel, while COBRA's advanced material placement enables more weight movement and precise CG placement for each iron.
President Bob Philion said: “We are extremely excited to bring the AMP CELL Pro Irons to the market. Our engineers worked with COBRA Tour players all over the world to understand specific needs and used their feedback in the development of the AMP CELL Pro Irons.
"In the end we had great looking clubs with optimal flight and trajectory control that will work for our Tour ambassadors as well as better players around the world.”
Vice President of Research and Development, Tom Preece, added: “Our new AMP CELL Pro Irons are designed for low handicappers who truly want a Tour Player set of irons in their bag. The forging process provides exceptional tolerance control and produces that soft, buttery feel that better players demand”.
Options: Right and left handed models in a 3-PW set with 2 irons and GW available.
Shafts: True Temper Dynamic Gold S300.
Grips: Golf Pride Multi Compound Cord.
Available: April 2013.
