The Cobra AMP Irons continue the theme of the oversized S3 irons which were one of our favourites. The styling is a little more aggressive and the finish has changed from black PVD to matt chrome which we think will appeal to more players.
Underneath the sharper angles of the AMP irons is a similar concept of a large face with weight in the heel and toe to create a high level of forgiveness. The weight is a little lower and further back than the S3s which makes the long irons in particular very easy to hit. The new V-skid sole does a good job of getting through the turf and will be ideal for most parkland layouts.
Despite the oversize heads, the top line looks great and just the right balance of playability without being too chunky. The white grooves on the face help you line up more easily than the orange line at the bottom of the face and the orange cavity on the back of the head cannot be seen at address on even the longer irons. The short irons again look compact and forgiving and the sound and feel throughout the set was very good.
Each club comes with a lovely feeling orange Lamkin N-DUR 3GEN grip on a True Temper Dynalite 90 Steel shaft that reduces weight for a little more clubhead speed. Thankfully the number is now back on the sole of the club too which is a welcome change.
The S3 irons were a little bit of a hidden gem and we think the Cobra AMP irons are just as good and ideal for a mid-handicapper or high single figure player looking for a quality iron with a bit of forgiveness.

OK, if you haven't demo-ed these yet, you really should.
I went from a set of G5's for 5 years that I loved 8-PW and didn't know what to expect with the 4-7. Played with a guy who went and got fit for a set of JPX 800 and decided to get fit at a Mizuno demo day. Ordered the MIzzys played with them for 2 months this last summer and was not happy with the distance control. I know it's me and not being consistent hitting the sweet spot and would hit 7 irons 155 or 175.
So in October I went into a big box sporting goods store at lunch and came out with a set of Cobra Amps. I have NEVER hit any iron set like this before. Quality shots on every hole with point, aim swing.
I am so excited to pull any iron out of the bag and hit a great shot.
Consistency and great shot making is all I can say. You will grow to love the grips when you start knocking down shots with these clubs! Cheers!
I have had a set of these (4-PW) for about 5 months now and I can only sing their praises.
My last set of irons were Taylormade LCGs and I decided to get myself a custom fitting for irons with my mind pretty made up for a set of TaylorMade RBZ irons. On the day I promised myself I would go with the launch monitor figures...and was amazed to find myself hitting the AMP 7-iron 5 yards further than the RBZ 6-iron.
I had a set built to my spec and haven't looked back. They are so much longer club distance wise that I have had to revise the rest of my bag and course strategy for my golf course. The irons are a pleasure to use, forgiving even on less than perfect strikes and on a flushed strike the ball just flies with a wonderful shaped flight.
The top down view of the club suits my eye and it is easy to line up. The top edge isn't too thick and indeed is thinner than a lot of game improvement clubs.
Find a set of these and try them...you wont be disappointed.
