AMP-CELL-Junior-Driver_640If your kid's a fan of Rickie Fowler (or -- let's face it -- if you want him or her to be), here's one more orange item to add to the birthday list: The Cobra AMP Cell Junior driver.
This kid's club is no toy: It has all the bells, whistles, and adjustability of the big-boy AMP Cell Driver, a version of which Fowler plays on Tour. That means "Cell" head weighting for a larger sweetspot, a "SmartPad" sole to keep the clubface square at address, and the "MyFly" hosel, which can be adjusted to one of six settings: 11.5°, 12.5°, 12.5° Draw, 13.5°, 13.5° Draw and 14.5°.
The club comes with a youth-flex Fujikura Fuel shaft available in three lengths: 39" (recommended for ages 8-9), 41" (10-11) and 43" (12-14) . What's more, register the club online and receive one free shaft upgrade. The idea is that the club grows with the kid: As your golfer gets bigger, lower the loft and install one of the longer, firmer flex shafts instead of replacing the club wholesale.
According to Cobra, the club retails for $299 and is available at Golfsmith stores beginning May 1st. (Illustration: Courtesy of Cobra)
