Great  Time owned: more than 12 months
I've used the Cobra for about a year and couldn't be happier. I've got it up about 30 feet, with a short segment of ladder line into a 4:1 balun and then coax to the rig. It does need a transmatch, and my little MFJ-971 gets it down to 1:1 on 40 and higher. 80 is harder to tune, but I can get 1:2, which is serviceable. It has gotten good signal reports and allows me to hear well on 40 and 20 even at times when my R8 is noisy by comparison. You do need to get this antenna off the ground and if roof mounted (like mine) at least 10 feet off the roof. I originally had mine 4 feet off the roof edge attached to a pole on the chimney, but it worked a heck of a lot better when I raised it another 6 feet.  
Product is in production.
