Cobra Golf launches special driver

Cobra Golf has announced the launch of the Special Edition Orange AMP Driver through collaboration with Rickie Fowler, who wears the orange of his alma mater Oklahoma State on Sundays on the PGA Tour. Available in limited quantities at select retailers this July, the driver brings Cobra Puma Golf’s signature color, technical innovation and performance to the golfers.

After launching its first white driver in November 2010 with the ZL, Cobra is now bringing the first monochromatic, color driver to the market. It has a vibrant orange crown with a vibrant orange and black PVD sole. The premium Mitsubishi Diamana Whiteboard shaft and Lamkin R.E.L. 3Gen grip are both a custom orange. The driver comes with an orange head cover and ships to consumers in a custom Cobra AMP orange box.

The driver features E9 Face Technology with dual roll, Adjustable Flight Technology (AFT), and Advanced Material Placement. The technologies combine with a Titanium 6-4 head and a semi-forged, milled titanium face to deliver high balls speeds, distance and customized performance. E9 Face Technology with dual roll utilizes an elliptical shape face that gives the special driver a 30-percent larger Sweet Zone, resulting in more distance, accuracy and forgiveness in shots hit from the low heel to high toe. The canted bulge with dual roll provides added distance and accuracy to the shots hit above and below the centerline. AFT lets golfers easily set the face angle to open, neutral or closed to optimize ball flight and Advanced Material Placement redistributes up to 15 grams of weight to maximize distance through optimized launch conditions.

Sophisticated computer modeling and simulation allow designers to thin walls to save weight and redistribute up to 15 grams of mass deep and back in the club head; this maximizes distance through optimized launch conditions. The driver has a suggested retail of $499 and is available in men’s right-handed lofts of 9.5, and 10.5 degrees in stiff and regular flexes. The driver will be available in the U.S. on Aug. 1 in limited quantities at select retailers. To find a Cobra dealer, visit http://cobragolf.com/dealer-locator.
