i agree on the pier but in a boat i like something closer to 8 i wouldnt go to 7 and 9 works fine its just a little more than u need in a tower with 2 guys on the pier 9 or longer is great because u want distance and u are stuck in 1 place in a boat u have the ability to follow a fish set up a good shot and sometimes standing up is the most difficult part of it all so an extra 7 to 12 inches can make it more that much harder to make a decent cast thats just me but everyone is different

I would recommend the bass pro shop 9ft rod. I have almost every rod known to man and can attest that these are great rods for pier cobia. They will sling a jig a very long ways, have plenty of back bone, and are not extremely heavy. I have two of them and have caught plenty of pier tarpon as well as cobia and they really do the job. They are also good for tossing a larger hartail, etc... for kings.

Get the half hitch rod.. you cant go wrong and the price is excellent. They're built on star blanks and are good decent rods. Half hitch will also stand by their work if you have any issues.

I have one of the half hitch rods. I like it, but don't really have a lot of experience with other Cobia rods. I picked it up on sale for under $100.
