Orange COBRA AMP Driver Special Edition Orange
Posted by: Darren Ramowski on Wed 27 Jun 2012
COBRA Golf have announced the launch of the Special Edition Orange AMPTM Driver. Through a collaboration with Rickie Fowler, COBRA Golf has created a Sunday Orange version of the popular AMP Driver.
Available in limited quantities at select retailers this August, the Special Edition Orange AMP Driver brings COBRA Golf’s signature color, technical innovation and performance to the golf course in a big way.
“This Special Edition driver embodies what COBRA Golf is bringing to the game of golf, a desirable package of performance, innovation and style,” commented Bob Philion, President of COBRA PUMA GOLF. “We are building on the success and strong performance of our current AMP line with an exciting limited edition that will resonate with Rickie’s fans. Like Rickie, we believe the Special Edition Orange AMP Driver will be a huge hit and continue to build desirability for the COBRA brand.”
After launching the first white driver in November 2010 with the ZL, COBRA is now bringing the first monochromatic, color driver to the market. The Special Edition Orange AMP Driver 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 vibrant orange. The driver comes with a vibrant orange head cover and ships to consumers in a custom COBRA AMP vibrant orange box. The Special Edition Orange AMP Driver honors and celebrates Rickie Fowler and his Sunday Orange.
“It was a lot of fun working with the COBRA research and development team on this driver,” said Rickie Fowler. “We had a few rounds of samples until we found the right Sunday Orange color and then we decided to use the same shaft I play on Tour. It has been performing great in testing and has a cool new look and edge to it. I think fans will love it.”
The Special Edition Orange AMP Driver features E9 Face Technology TM with dual roll, Adjustable Flight Technology TM (AFT), and Advanced Material Placement TM. These technologies combine with a Titanium 6-4 head and a semi-forged, milled titanium face to deliver blistering balls speeds, explosive distance and customized performance. E9 Face Technology with dual roll utilizes an elliptical shape face that gives the Special Edition Orange AMP Driver a 30% 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.
“The Special Edition driver features the same advanced technology we use in our Tour proven AMP Driver,” said Tom Preece, Vice President of Research and Development at COBRA PUMA GOLF. “The adjusted shape face and design of bulge and roll gives golfers more confidence when mis-hits happen by creating a larger Sweet Zone; ultimately adding forgiveness and distance to shots that aren’t hit in the center of the face.”
With the Special Edition Orange AMP Driver, COBRA Golf is driving desirability for the brand and bringing an innovative, fresh new product for golfers to enjoy the game of golf.
