AMP up with the new driver from COBRA PUMA GOLF
Pure. Fresh. Juicy.
These are the marketing words being tossed about to describe the new AMP driver from COBRA PUMA GOLF. You don’t even need to take a single swing with the new big stick to understand what COBRA PUMA is talking about.
The driver just looks cool and hip and well, sweet! But looks (check out the photos from cobragolf.com above) only go so far. Does it do the trick off the tee?
The technology worked for COBRA PUMA posterboy, Rickie Fowler, who won his first PGA Tour event, the Wells Fargo Championship, in May with an 8.5 degree AMP. His AMP Driver features E9 Face Technology with dual roll, Adjustable Flight Technology and Advanced Material Placement. These powerful technologies provide a larger sweet zone on the face, optimized ball flight and a redistribution of weight for optimized launch conditions. Combined, these features maximize distance and accuracy.
Fowler’s total average driving distance was 305.9 yards for the tournament. He hit almost 80% of the greens in regulation, ranking him at No. 1 for total driving that week.
Thanks to Fowler, COBRA PUMA has carved out a niche among young golfers and shall we say, the color-outside-the-lines crowd. The bright colors on the AMP certainly match the signature orange colors of Fowler’s Sunday outfits.
COBRA PUMA has taken a back seat to TaylorMade in recent years, but the new AMP shows the brand is willing to deliver new equipment that catches the eye and thinks outside the box. Consider me a fan.
I’m still hitting a Nike Machspeed black driver with a square head. I hope the AMP takes its place eventually. I guess I like drivers that are conversation pieces when you pull them out on the first tee. They both certainly fit the bill. Orange has always been my favorite color, by the way.
I have competition for it, though. My 10-year-old wants it. That speaks to its appeal with the younger crowd.
