If it will stop a king then it will stop a cobia.

If you are really getting into pier fishing dont worry about it...you will have a new rod and reel by next cobia season. I would not reccomend a 7ft anything for cobes on the pier...it isnt pretty when they go under the pier.

witha longer rod, you tend to have a bit more leverage and control.. not to mention that if he goes under the pier, a longer rod could keep your line from scraping against the always unwelcome concrete below your feet... remember if king goes under the pier, freespool his a$$ and he'll turn around... good luck bud!!!
