The new line of Cobra women's clubs includes two types of AMP 460cc titanium drivers -- an adjustable model (above) for players who like to tinker with face settings and might need a more neutral or even open face, and an offset one for those who just need help battling a slice. Weight has been distributed low and deep inside the clubheads, which adds height and distance to your shots. The milled titanium face has a unique design that's focused on maximizing speed on off-center hits. The adjustable Cobra Women's AMP driver comes with three different face settings (closed, neutral and open), is available in 13.5 degrees of loft (although when set to the closed face, the loft increases, and the opposite happens with the open face setting) and costs $299. The offset model has 15 degrees of loft and costs $249.
AMP stands for Advanced Material Placement, and in the Women's AMP Irons (above), that means the clubheads are made from two different types of steel to allow for weight to be manipulated in such a way that you'll get more distance out of your mid and long irons, and more consistence out of your short irons. A soft inlay behind the face dampens vibration and gives the clubs a softer feel, and the V-shaped sole allows for versatility and has more bounce than many other models to keep you from digging into the ground. The clubs come with ultralight (50g) graphite shafts and soft, cushy Winn wrap grips, and cost $799 for seven irons (but you can also buy each club individually if you prefer fewer than seven).
To round out the set, Cobra offers matching Women's Baffler T-rail fairway woods (left) and hybrids (right). Both come with tungsten rail soles designed to lower the clubs' center of gravity and function well off any type of surface, and have high-strength steel faces to add ball speed. The fairway woods ($180 ea.) are available in 18, 20 and 22 degrees of loft, and the hybrids ($160) in 22, 25, 28, 31 and 34 degrees (all the way down to the 7-hybrid).
Which mix of clubs will work best for you? That can only be determined through a proper fitting. Visit your retailer and ask to hit demo clubs on a launch monitor. The goal is to construct a set that has consistent yardage gaps between each club. Remember: you don't have to have 14 clubs in your bag. The slower you swing, the fewer clubs you need. Most women golfers can get away with carrying only 10 or 11.
