    I don't care for the green/yellow near as much as I do the orange of the AMP line, but it's still a nice looking club and I'm interested to hear how it performs on the course. After all, performance is the most important thing anyway.

    Hit this one a handful of times this evening and don't have a ton of info for you yet. The grip is a bit on the harsh side. The head sets up nicely and the shallow face definitely is a confidence booster. Solid tingy sound at impact. Sort of struggled with some sidespin issues when I swung it tonight, so I'll leave it at that. More to come soon.

    Anyone get a chance to swing the baffler hybrid yet? Wanted last year's but they were sold out of 19* models...I'm hoping these new ones are equally as foolproof.

    Got my hands on the new cobra woods line today the t rail looked better in Person but I'm still not a fan of the yellow sight Lines! The amped line looks like it could mean buisness a big step in the right way for cobra! Plus Rickie is hitting the ball well this weekend that always helps!

    I'm not going to completely close the books on this review, but I didn't care much for this today. Getting it outside enabled me to hear the sound a little better and it wasn't especially pleasant. I didn't think it was nearly as forgiving off the turf as the Mashie. I also had some left issues with it for some reason. Still, I'll give it some more time to see what happens.

    I just posted one four days ago, but haven't hit clubs since. Any specifics that you were wondering about?

    Hopefully I get a chance to hit it outdoors again for you. On the monitor I was getting typical distance for a 3w, but I don't have any averages on hand at the moment. Nothing abnormally short or long. Seems to launch pretty high with mid/high ball flight on well struck shots.

    Outside, I really struggled with it. Especially off the turf. Granted, I was hitting it against the Mashie fwy, so that may be clouding things a bit. I had a hard time controlling it. It wanted to go left on me and I wasn't seeing that forgiveness I got from the Mashie. Surely an issue with the user as well, but I was missing high on the face and it wasn't going very far for me on those shots. Truthfully, I thought it sounded awful when I hit it outdoors.

    Yea, you should hit it first for sure. I can think of at least 4 fairways I'd choose before this one right now, but like I said, I want to give it another shot.

    That would be a good one to check out as well. Who knows - this one could work well for you too.

    Confirmed today that the sound/feel is just not there with this. It's a very muted, high-pitched sound that doesn't do much for me. I did hit it pretty well today and the distance is there on well struck shots. I'll try to get it out on the grass one more time before I wrap the review up. It's been sort of bi-polar for me thus far.
