My point is the dark is beefy, not great for beginners or lazy riding, cobra would probably be a better choice.

Not really.

Dark series is
- aggressive freestyle stick
- much stiffer
- still a twin, albeit a directional one
- built for charging and high speed (C2 and C3 (from next year) have more pressure close to the contact points than the NS profiles)

Cobra is
- playful freeride deck
- softer
- directional (shape and profile!)

Dark series is closer to the Heritage than the Cobra.

Im not a beginner and 90% of the time I go hard rather than be lazy. Im just saying that it needs to be able to turn at slower speeds if Im with friends and absolutely have to go a bit slower( and when I say slow I mean around 25mph ish). As for the cobra and heritage, theyre both sold out in all sizes that I could use. They do have 1 raptor 156 left though, would that be a decent option?

As I've said... I love mine. Great hard charger. I can ride ir slow but don't like to. Mines a 165w though.
