The Cobra AMP Cell Hybrid features Cobra's MyFly and SmartPad technology, designed to offer unmatched distance gapping and performance.
Available in three models that can be adjusted to offer 10 different lofts in four fresh colours, the AMP Cell Hybrid allows golfers to dial in their distance gaps and manage their trajectories based on swing, course or weather conditions. The 2/3 Hybrid can be adjusted to 16, 17, 17 Draw, 18, 18 Draw and 19 degrees, the 3/4 Hybrid can be 19, 20, 20 Draw, 21, 21 Draw and 22 degrees, and the 4/5 Hybrid offers lofts of 22, 23, 23 Draw, 24, 24 Draw and 25 degrees.
The Cobra AMP Cell Hybrid takes customisation and choice even further, allowing golfers to choose from four different colour options that will be used to colour the crown and Cell band on the sole. The fresh new colour options are Silver, Directoire Blue, Vibrant Orange and Barbados Red.
Unlike some clubs that require players to adjust the sole plate to maintain a square face angle, the Cobra AMP Cell Hybrid uses Cobra's SmartPad Technology. The SmartPad keeps a square face angle regardless of which loft setting is used, and still allows the workability to open or close the face as desired.
The AMP Cell Hybrid further benefits from Cobra's E9 Face, Advanced Material Placement (AMP) and Cell Technologies. AMP and Cell Technology work together to redistribute the weight, while the E9 Face Technology creates a larger E9 face, resulting in a hybrid that delivers faster ball speeds, higher MOI and greater forgiveness.

The Cobra AMP Cell Hybrid offers the widest range of lofts that we have seen on a utility club and this is the ideal in that crucial fairway wood to long iron gap as it gives you so many options.
Each of the 3 models has six MyFly settings over 4 loft settings so it is really like having 2 clubs in one. Usually changing the loft will change the face angle but Cobra's innovative SmartPad is a bar on the sole that becomes the only point of contact with the ground. This enables the face to 'pivot' around a single point to maintain a square face whichever loft is selected, which is very impressive.
Cobra are rightly renowned for their hybrids and as a club the AMP Cell is as good as any from the Baffler range. The sound and feel at impact was very good and for the size of head it was pretty forgiving. The lively colour choices all look great behind the ball so make sure you try them like that rather than in the shop as they do look better on the course.
The various lofts did their job, but a couple of our testers found the regular lofts, especially at the top and bottom of each range, were more likely to produce a straight to fade shot. The 2 draw settings in the middle of the range were a little easier to get going and produced a more consistently straight flight with maybe a slight draw, but not much. This may then limit the usability of all the options so check them out first and see what you think.
That aside the adjustability and SmartPad of the Cobra AMP Cell hybrid are an innovative development which should be welcomed.
