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.
