Jason H.wrote a review of Black Diamond Cobra Ice Tool on June 16, 2012
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
The most important though is with complete shoulder construction, I can swing these like they were part of me. Awesome stick, light weight, well balanced, I am ordering the head weights from blackdiamond. These are without a doubt the best all-round tool i have used!!! They are not a technical tool, but are made or 85% or more of what you will be doing. I have heard complaints of rocking, but if you utilize the light weight and perform a full extension, no issues. I just did a little inverted work with them and they did well.
