Cobra Bio Cell Pro Driver

Posted at 12:56 PM by Michael Chwasky

Cobra-bio-cell-pro_640
Unlike some other notable drivers on the market the new BIO CELL Pro driver ($399) from Cobra is designed with a low center of gravity to produce faster ballspeeds and more distance. The compact, 440cc clubhead is made to appeal to better players who want a combination of power and workability in a more pleasing size and shape. 

“This Pro Driver was designed for golfers with a strong swing that yields high launch and high spin,” said Jose Miraflor, director of product marketing. “To help these golfers play at their best, we created the BiO CELL Pro Driver, our lowest CG ever to deliver unmatched distance and performance.”

Other features of the BIO CELL Pro include adjustable loft technology that offers eight trajectory settings, an adjustable sole pad that delivers a square clubface at address regardless of loft, and a lightweight clubface that allows more weight to be positioned low and deep in the clubhead. Three color options (black, blue aster, and vibrant orange) and a choice of one of two custom shaft options without extra charge allow for further customization. 

The BIO CELL Pro will be available in limited numbers on May 1st.

Just in time to drive down Magnolia Lane is Cobra's new Limited Edition Green BIO CELL driver ($399). Available March 15, the club comes standard with all the usual BIO CELL features including MyFly8, SmartPad, and E9 face technology but with the addition of a matching green and white shaft, grip, and head cover. 

“There is so much buzz in the golf community surrounding the first major of the year, and the Limited Edition Driver helps bring some of that excitement to the COBRA Brand,” said Tom Olsavsky, vice president of R&D. “This driver showcases our game-changing technologies, including MyFly8, SmartPadand E9 Face, that delivers increased distance, while the Limited Edition Green allows us to celebrate one of golf’s premier events.”

The Limited Edition Green BIO CELL driver can be adjusted to 9-, 9.5-, 10.5-, 11.5-, and 12-degrees of loft and features three draw-bias settings (9.5-, 10.5-, and 11.5-degrees). Aldila ATX Tour Green shaft (R, S, or X-flex) and COBRA Lamkin Ace 3GEN grip come standard.

First Look: Cobra Baffler XL hybrids

Posted at 11:00 AM by Robert Sauerhaft

Cobra-baffler-xl_640
In 1975, Cobra burst onto the scene with a laminated maple utility club called the Baffler. It was a landmark club, a truly revolutionary design -- the great-grandfather of the hybrids that have become such a huge presence in our bags.

Four decades and countless models later, the newest Baffler, the XL, has the same ambition as the original: to make the game easier for everyday players. It has a flexible steel face to promote higher ball speeds. Cobra combines a shallow face with 20 grams of tungsten backweighting (30 percent more than the company's current Baffler T-Rail+ hybrid) to create a lower, deeper center of gravity so shots launch higher by 0.5 degrees, with less spin.

The Baffler XL is more forgiving than the T-Rail+ on mis-hits, too. Added stability (19 percent higher MOI) means less twisting at impact, which produces 1 to 2 mph faster ball speeds on off-center shots. According to Cobra, you can expect five or more extra yards from mis-hits.

The XL's prominent sole rails -- a feature dating back to the Ford Administration -- are designed with lots of "bounce" on the leading edge, so the head skids along the ground rather than digging in too deeply. The Baffler XL is nonadjustable, but comes in six lofts: 2H (17°), 3H (19°), 4H (22°), 5H (25°), 6H (28°) and 7H (31°). $159 each, graphite.

Cobra unveils limited edition driver for U.S. Open

Posted at 5:01 PM by Golf.com

Amp_cell_hero_US_Open_300Another major, another line of special edition gear. And while the U.S. Open isn't exactly around the corner, Cobra's getting us started with a first look at their commemorative red, white and blue driver. Because it's never too early for a little patriotism.

Unlike for the Masters, when Cobra released 1,800 green AMP Cell drivers, they're cutting back the quantity for the Open. This time, they're releasing just 600 AMP Cell Pro drivers. (The change makes sense, since the non-"Pro" AMP Cell already comes in blue.) It'll cost you, too: Cobra suggests a $499 retail, or about $100 more than the non-commemorative club.

Of course, it has all the same tech you'd get in the regular club. That means the "MyFly" adjustable hosel, which switch between six different loft settings (7.5°, 8.5°, 8.5° Fade, 9.5°, 9.5° Fade and 10.5°), and a "SmartPad" sole to help keep club square through all of that tweaking. What is different here -- other than the color scheme and the number stamped on the bottom -- is the shaft: The Open edition comes with an Aldila RIP Phenom shaft instead of the standard MRC Kurokage.

If you're interested, the club goes on sale June 1st. Or, if you're more of an Anglophile at heart, perhaps wait another month. We're guessing they'll roll out the British Open version by then. Fingers crossed for Union Jacks.

Cobra releases AMP Cell Junior Driver

Posted at 5:04 PM by Mark Dee

AMP-CELL-Junior-Driver_640
If your kid's a fan of Rickie Fowler (or -- let's face it -- if you want him or her to be), here's one more orange item to add to the birthday list: The Cobra AMP Cell Junior driver.

This kid's club is no toy: It has all the bells, whistles, and adjustability of the big-boy AMP Cell Driver, a version of which Fowler plays on Tour. That means "Cell" head weighting for a larger sweetspot, a "SmartPad" sole to keep the clubface square at address, and the "MyFly" hosel, which can be adjusted to one of six settings: 11.5°, 12.5°, 12.5° Draw, 13.5°, 13.5° Draw and 14.5°.

The club comes with a youth-flex Fujikura Fuel shaft available in three lengths: 39" (recommended for ages 8-9), 41" (10-11) and 43" (12-14) . What's more, register the club online and receive one free shaft upgrade. The idea is that the club grows with the kid: As your golfer gets bigger, lower the loft and install one of the longer, firmer flex shafts instead of replacing the club wholesale.

According to Cobra, the club retails for $299 and is available at Golfsmith stores beginning May 1st.

Cobra releases limited edition green AMP Cell driver just in time for Masters

Posted at 1:44 PM by Robert Sauerhaft

Cobra-masters-green-driver_640
Cobra broadened its fashion-forward offerings to include a limited run of 1,800 green-headed AMP Cell drivers.

Starting on March 15, the green monsters ($399; each one marked with 1-1,800 on the sole for authenticity) will be available with a green grip, a Mitsubishi Diamana Blue Board graphite shaft, plus a matching head cover and wrench. The club's adjustable hosel has six loft settings: 8.5°, 9.5°, 9.5° Draw, 10.5°, 10.5° Draw and 11.5°.

Its elliptical club face has "dual roll" -- it's flatter below the center line of the face -- to increase launch without increasing backspin. In addition, an elliptical pad behind the face improves ball speed on low-heel and high-toe shots.

Cobra Baffler Hybrid Iron Combo Set

Posted at 3:31 PM by David Dusek

Cobra Golf used a 40-year-old concept to create a new set of irons for golfers who have trouble getting the ball airborne, don’t hit it very far and rarely make solid contact.

Cobra-Baffler-Hybrid-Iron-Combo-Set_600x600
Because long irons are challenging to hit -- even for the game’s best players -- the Baffler Hybrid Iron Combo set doesn’t have any. Instead, the stock set comes with hybrids in place of the 4-, 5- and 6-irons. These Baffler hybrids have shallow faces to make it easier to get the ball up and two rails in the sole that are reminiscent of those found in the first Baffler utility woods built in the 1970s. If you hit the ground behind the ball, the rails help the clubs skim across the turf instead of digging, which should result in a better shot.

Cobra’s new Baffler irons compliment the hybrids have a unique face that’s slightly angular, but Cobra's vice president of research and design Tom Preece said the company eliminated unnecessary material in the toe. That meant the company could lower the center of gravity in the Baffler irons and move it farther back to help golfers get the ball in the air more easily.

As the set transitions from the mid-irons to the short-irons and wedges, the faces transition into a more-traditional shape.

In addition, all the irons have a wide-sole and rails like the hybrids to help offset the effect of hitting the ground before you hit the ball. Cobra has also positioned a thermoplastic vibration dampening system behind the face, that enhances feel and improves the sound at impact, Preece said.

Below is a video produced Cobra Golf that explains more about the clubs.

The Baffler Hybrid Iron Combo set (4-6h, 7-PW, GW) will cost about $599 with graphite hybrids and steel-shafted irons and $699 for an all graphite-shafted set.

Cobra unveils ‘Sunday Orange’ AMP driver

Posted at 10:39 AM by David Dusek

There was a time when drivers were like Model T Fords—you could have one in any color your liked as long as it was black. But with the release of a Sunday Orange version of its AMP driver, Cobra has added yet another hue to the rainbow of driver options.

Orange-Cobra-AMP_640

The special edition AMP driver, inspired by Cobra staffer Rickie Fowler's love for wearing orange on Sundays, comes standard with the same shaft Fowler uses—an orange Mitsubishi Diamana White Board. An orange Lamkin 3Gen grip completes the monochromatic look,

 The 460-cc titanium head is identical to the previously released AMP driver and features a face that is slightly asymmetrical and designed to be more forgiving on shots hit high in the toe and low in the heel areas. The head can also be adjusted into one of three different face-angle settings using a torque wrench to help players create more of a draw or fade bias.

The Sunday Orange edition AMP will be available in July at select Cobra retailers. You can also buy the club on golf.com. The company is only making the club in right-hand models in 9.5° and 10.5° lofts and the price will be $499.
