I was too lazy to go to the store (and the new cobra's aren't out yet, anyhow)... so here is a virtual comparison of the 06 and 07 Cobras and Vipers. Just in case (like me), you are familiar with one tool, and want to see how the others stack up against your old tool.

I setup each tool as a layer in PhotoShop, with a transparent background. Once stacked, I aligned the picks (which are the one common part)... so this should be somewhat representative.

Maybe someone else will find this helpful.

Ha. True. Well, this is definitely what happens when Avery:

1. has been dreaming of new tools
2. is injured
3. wants to learn how to use photoshop
4. e-mail is down
5. is clearly bored

What can I say... Photoshop is cool (and remarkably quick)!

Avery,

In the top row of your picture, what are the comparisons? How about a picture of the new Cobra overlayed with the old Viper.

Hey Jason,

The upper left picture shows the 07 Cobra and 07 Viper. So, you can see their shape is almost identical. I've got a pair of Vipers to play with now, so i don't have to look at 'em again...
