I have a 158SL and i am having dificulties in pulling the trigger on the cobra 161
Wish I could. I have not ridden an SL yet. Sabatoa owns a Legacy (wide version) so I'm sure he can help you with some info!

Not until I ride the Cobra.

I think my personal riding style is actually drifting the opposite direction the Cobra towards a Proto type board, something true-twin rather than directional. I'm hitting more features, more kickers, trying more freestyle, etc.

For now the Legacy is exactly where I should be but the next board will be a true twin.

I could put in a request, but the problem is our season is all but done in MI. The only way for me to ride is to travel up north for a day and that's really rough for me to pull-off.

Even though sabatoa keeps trying to get him up there.

I would love to read a comparison as well. I'm currently riding an SL and thinking about getting a Cobra for next season.

Forgot to talk about the stability on steeps. Added this to the handling section:

The Cobra is a great board to lay carves down on. Just tilt on an edge and put in work. Handled all the blacks I threw at it well including ones with mogul fields. Again, it's not as damp or beastly as the Heritage though.

Guys, I'm still seeing people confused about whether or not the Cobra is tapered... IT IS NOT TAPERED.

The tip and tail are the same exact measurement at the widest point. The tail is spaded and thus tapers from that widest point rather than the board as whole tapering.

A true tapered board tapers from the widest point of the nose through the tail. The Cobra tapers off from widest point of the tail. Hence "spade tail".

Leo have you ridden the Heritage? How would you compare the flex on the Cobra to the Heritage?
