PostSubject: Anyone using Cobra AMP hybrid?   Thu Mar 14, 2013 10:50 am

I noticed that GD is selling these hybrids for just $99, which is incredible considering it comes with adjustibility

I'm thinking of trying this out and I'm wondering if anyone here has any thoughts on it, in particular, how is the quality of the stock fujikura rombax shaft? I haven't been able to find any online reviews on this hybrid with the rombax shaft. I believe this is cos the Rombax is Asian-spec. the US-spec comes with Aldila RIP shaft. My main concern is whether this Asian spec shaft would translate into a ballooning ball flight.

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. It'd be great if u can also give a comparison between this and the R11 rescue.

Thanks!!!

Hi. I just bought the Cobra amp 3-hybrid last month.. only used it a couple of times so far.. still need to give it time before i judge it !

First impression is that the shaft seems a bit heavy (75 g)... let's see if my opinion changes after a few rounds !

Let me know if you guys are meeting up sometime soon.. would love to join !

Cheers

I need to find a replacement for my TM Burner Superfast 2.0 Hybrid as the TM is hooking the life out of me. It seems rather closed face based on the pictures I am seeing at Cobra site?

I'm using the Amp 4 hybrid bought at GD too. It goes further than my Burner 2.0 3hybrid when I can find the sweet spot for both!!!
Had my first ever eagle chance at a par 5 hole last week at legends. Using the AMP for my approach shot. About 190m downhill with back wind!!!!
Distance wise and accuracy, this is a good club.
But forgiveness isnt very good. My previous burner 4h was defintiely much more forgiving than the AMP.

My 2 cents

I bought from GD last week.
Its not forgiving but with more practise i think will be fine.
The orange color look is a killer!!!!

In my opinion, go for it!!!!!

@scottycollector, you very fast hand fast leg hor. Luckily i am looking for 19deg with S flex.

For those bros who said that it is not very forgiving, care to share in what ways it is not forgiving?

In my opinion, the g-spot is pretty small. You need to be quite consistent with your swing to hit the small spot to get the optimum result. Otherwise like me, i use it to hit a draw. Luckily the AMP allow you to adjust the club face. In my case i think i need to open the club face more.
Length wise for me is perfect fit and the shaft although is R, i don't find it too wimpy.
Rest assure if you hit the right spot, the sound and feedback is sweet......

Recently had the chance of trying the Amp vs Baffler T-Rail Hybrid, my observations are:

- Amp has a "Deeper" or "Taller" face
- Baffler T-Rail has a Wider or "Shallow" face
- Felt the Baffler was more forgiving, could get more good contact shots
- As the Amp head was not as wide, was getting more bad hits vs the baffler
- For a beginner like myself, the Amp head looked smaller, so it reduced my ball hitting confidence as well
- Amp has a Grey head, Silver face, vs the Baffler Black head, Silver face (More contrast, so can line up/visualize the shot easier)

Just my 2 cents worth. Cheers!
