Default DX Cobra

There are many comparison threads and confusing King vs. Ontario threads, etc.

So I want to talk about the garden variety DX Cobra you buy off the shelf tomorrow.

I started throwing mine again the other day, and I love this disc.

I have a 180, and it just soars, as long as many of my fairways.

It has just the right combo of high speed turn and low speed fade, nice shallow grip, and nice flat and wide.

Yeah well, I never tried the new ones or even know the difference but the ontario dx ones are butter hyzerflippers late turning machines.

Mine isn't touchy or difficult to throw - you bring up a good point, Cobra never brings up a straight response

The current DX Cobras and King Cobras are my only mid I bag and throw! The DX beats to a awesomely straight flyer and it has glide for days! Mine are in the 170-174 weight range.

The King can handle a good rip, stay straight and finish with fade at the end.

The Cobra is a seriously under-rated disc.

The last time I saw DX Cobras in a store, they still had a mix of Ontario molds and the www molds that used the Stingray top. Are we talking about Ontario molds here?

Love the DX Cobras! I get 150-class Cobras, which are understable and turn over, and use them for doglegs right (RHBH throw). I also have a Star Cobra (mid 160s wt.) that goes straight with a touch of understability; this disc also works for high anny shots.

I will have to check the tooling on mine, but I just got my latest ones directly from Innova East when I ordered discs for the store just about a month ago.

I have tried to learn about all the Cobras "sheddings" over the years and still stay confused about ALL of them .
