Jim Coombe's review of Barnett Cobra Slingshot


“I rate this the most comfortable of the non folding...”

Written on: 13/04/2008 by Jim Coombe (13 reviews written)

Good Points
The most comfortable wrist brace and handle on the market. Well made yokes. The rubber tubing is decent. The quality of the metal is very good.

Bad Points
The stabilizer is worthless and needs to be easily detachable. Barnett pouches are currently among the worst on the market.

General Comments
I rate this the most comfortable of the non folding slingshots to shoot. The wrist brace-which is bottom mounted-is the best available-far far better than the wrist braces that attach to the top of the handle such as the Saunders and the Pro Diablo. The grip-be it the original version or the newer "soft grip" is very comfortable and is conducive to long shooting sessions.

The stabilizer is basically worthless and should be easy to remove but it is not. Barnett ought to use this platform for its pro diablo 2-the wrist brace is SO MUCH better than the one on either versions of the Pro Diablo. The leather pouch is awful on this-I give this sling a top rating IF you replace its pouch with say the saunders or the trumark.

If I were going to build a serious target slingshot I would use this as a starting point-probably bolt some sort of V-bar holder on the bottom of the handle. This is probably the most comfortable slingshot to shoot for long periods of time. I highly recommend it if you replace the pouch.
