I dont know anything about the cobra, other than the Jersey guys seem to like it in the hollow stuff.Just found out about this Roberts Black Cobra. Has wide point forward, but also decent amout of rocker. Seems interesting, not sure I've seen a design like this. Also an option for XTR.
Any thoughts on this, or even on Roberts in general? I'm not familiar.
Ive got 3 Roberts models. Stoked with the starchip model, and Id have a look at the Meat Cleaver.
Im using it an inch shorter than a hpsb, fraction wider. Im not sure if its wide point forward, but volume is good up there, for those chest pressure late takeoffs. Nice kick at the nose and a very effective rail entry. Its been perfect for 3-4' hollow or powerful beachies. Its good on rail too, improves my dodgy work. First batch from Roberts they seem like a good mob, boards feel similar to Simon Anderson.
I would recommend xtr glasswork over the inhouse if you prefer epoxy. I think he shapes well for bigger blokes and i found going 1/8 less in rail thickness than normal worked.His website has good info and the specs were accurate for my end of the spectrum. They communicated well and linked up nicely with xtr. Even with xtr have a real good look around the finboxes etc before you leave the factory.
