The Cobra is a yo-yo produced by Henrys that was first released in 1999.


The Cobra is designed as a low-cost version of the Viper, featuring a plastic hub with recessed holes on raised discs around the axle that function like recessed starbursts. It also boasts rubber shells that are slightly heavier than the Viper's, as well as the AXYS system. It comes standard with a Slider axle, which features a plastic transaxle sleeve, along with the Quicktrick adjustable gap. The user also has the option of using other AXYS axles on the yo-yo, such as the Shockhead (fixed wooden axle) or even the Speed Explosion (ball bearing). Like the Viper it was based on, the Cobra is usable for 4A (Offstring) play because of the shells.

The members of Team Off-String would equip the Cobra's shells on their Viper AXYS yo-yos to increase the weight.
