  • Joined: Sat Jun 10, 2017 10:25 pm Posts: 8 Year: Other/Not Listed Make: Yamaha Model: Other/Not Listed Misc: SX195 Just wanted to give a quick review on the CJS viper series Jeff installed for me last week. I have a new SX195, and I love it. The only thing that I didn’t like about it was the lack of steering in reverse while in no wake mode. For less than $160, problem solved!! The CJS Viper completely changed my steering. It’s much tighter under power, actually responds in idle and tracks better. Cheapest, must have add on for a jet drive. Thanks Jeff!!

  • So after a couple of months of going back and forth on whether to buy Lateral thrust reversers or try a new system all together we went with the Cobra Jet Viper NK's with Mega Fangs (can't really go wrong with the Money-back guarantee that Jeff promises). Jeff was great throughout the whole process with quick reply emails about the install, since I had to remove the ThrustVectors (TV's) and had to acquire new parts (collars) that were removed and he even sent a couple bolts to assist in the install, made the order on Weds. evening and received the package on Friday. The install was uneventful and as depicted and described (except for the removal of the TV's, that was a PIA), applied the super glue so we could get out and test out the new system the next afternoon. I hit the water about 1130. A little background we are new to the Jet Boat scene (only 6 months of experience) and have always had the JBP TV's on the boat so we had no real comparison of being "nozzle only" (we don't have a articulating keel) the TV's provided decent slow maneuverability, but due to our other boating experiences we felt something was missing, especially on plane and in reverse. From the moment we left the dock, the difference was quite noticeable in reverse and at slow no wake zone speed the maneuverability was fantastic and more like what we had experienced with an outboard. Once we cleared the no wake zone, we powered up and what a pleasant surprise on plane very quickly and she felt like all of a sudden we had a tight steering system with no slop and you could put her where you pointed her. We made about a 30 min run down the Manatee River at WOT and did quite a bit of turning and even a couple left and right 360 degree circles and were grinning the entire time. My wife took the helm and we continued down the river and she couldn't believe what a difference in the handling and even used the term "power steering" type feel in the handling. On the way back we pulled into one of the riverfront pubs (Woody's) here and just to see how she did in a "tight" maneuvering space I idled into the enclosed docking area and put her through the paces, completed at TIGHT 180 in front of all of the customers by the dock and proceeded back out. She handled like a champ and away we took off toward the boat ramp. My wife took over about 2 miles before the ramp. I wanted her to dock the boat with the new system. As we arrived we realized why we don't do weekend boating, the ramp was 4 deep in inbounds and 5 deep in out bounds, with various levels of boatsmanship on display. Needless to say it was going to be a while, my wife used the 35 minutes to do slow maneuvers around some crab pot buoys and she was very impressed with how the boat handled. Once our turn was up she docked the boat with very little effort even in a challenging current and wind condition, also an audience watching. In summary the system is exactly what Jeff promises. In our humble opinion the CJS Viper with Mega Fangs is a better overall handling package for the single thrust (can't speak to the dual thrust boats) as compared to the TV's.

  • Well, I installed and tested the new FANGS today. In a word: awesome. Ordering and delivery - I had the item at my door exactly two days after I paid an invoice for paypal transaction. Shipping is included. Install - its pretty easy, albeit I have the newest Cobra Ultimates I think already pre-drilled for the FANGS. I found the last two pictures in the install manual to be the most informative. Performance notes - what can I say, already great system taken to the next level. No surprises here as far as the "power steering" effect - works exactly as advertised. As far as the reverse - it becomes laser sharp with the FANGS. I actually surprised myself here, didn't think much of it at all as I got busy at the dock, and just noticed my backing up maneuvering being very sharp. So - a 100% recommendation from me. I really like riding with the fins down at speed, and this should be good for the cables, primary handling benefits notwithstanding. 2012 SX19 Yamaha jet boat owner in Saint louis MO.

  • I put the CobraJet Steering kit that you sent me on the Mercury Sportsjet that is on my 22 ft. Motion Marine Mojet LX and it works great. Thank you for the excellant service.

  • We purchased the cobra jet steering from you at the beginning of June. A couple viewings of your YouTube video later and the fins were installed! We took the boat out two weekends ago it was super windy at Lake Mead in Nevada AND THE STEERING IS AMAZING!!!! what a difference! I usually trailer the boat my husband backs the trailer in, before the fins the boat a Yamaha SX210 would spin in a circle as I attempted to drive it onto the trailer now It steers right onto the trailer like a regular prop! We cannot thank you enough it's like we have a brand new boat! We will be telling everyone in NV about you and your wonderful invention! Thank you again!!!

  • I THOUGHT I MADE A $25,000 MISTAKE! I bought my first boat ever – 19’ Yamaha SX190 Jet boat and launched it only to discover that it was very difficult to steer and nearly impossible for me to dock and load. My heart sank and I was sick. I phoned the dealer and much to my surprise they recommended your Cobra Jet Steering system. I ordered your steering system right away and the easy to use instruction and video made installation a snap. I do mean a “snap,” because I am not mechanically inclined at all. After the installation, (which took about 20 min for me) I launched the boat and it was like MAGIC! I could drive my new boat with ease and the response time in the steering was almost immediate. Thanks COBRA JET STEERING, this could have turned out very ugly and costly for me. AMAZING CUSTOMER SERVICE! Thank you Jeff, for taking the time and trouble to personally answer my questions regarding your Cobra Jet Steering System. I was amazed at your response time both with email and via the telephone. You truly believe in your product and CARE about your customers and their satisfaction. This is the way business ought to be.

  • Oh my god! Jeff I wanted to send a note to thank you for several reasons. First your communication has been flawless, I ordered the fins last weekend. You responded immediately! Second, you sourced cheaper shipping and sent me a credit! Who does this? Thank you! Third, the install is amazingly easy, I cracked a beer to enjoy while in did the install and only got to have three sips before I was done! Fourth and most important, OMG I now have a different craft! The new handling is amazing! I have the best of both worlds now, a jet boat with traditional handling! Jeff thank you again and keep up the great work, it's truly appreciated in the boating world!

  • Jeff, Had to write you and let you know the results on how my 232 Yamaha handles with the installation of your Cobra Jet Ultimate fins. Let me first start by saying that this boats future was in jeopardy of getting sold if this didn't work as anticipated. This is because my wife ( who has been a boater for many years) could not pilot or dock this Yamaha 232 since we bought it 2 months ago, and was 'terrified' to dock it. I am happy to say that we will not be selling it, these fins work FANTASTIC! I have them in the full down position and the boat handles beautifully! What a difference in steering and handling! My wife can now pilot and dock the boat by herself which was a major hurdle since she takes the boat out solo at times. Can't say enough about the difference in handling, especially low speed steering and control. Fantastic product and very easy to install!. Thanks Jeff!

  • Hi Jeff - I installed the Cobra Jet Venom Ultimate fins last week. The difference in handling is night and day. Prior to the installation, my 2014 Yamaha SX 190 was very hard to steer at low speed because of such delayed response (ship without a rudder). There was also some of that at high speed although not as pronounced. The worst handling was coming off plane into midrange. Docking was touchy, even with practice. Now the boat handles as well as any outdrive I have owned. In fact, with the Cobra Jet fins combined with the Yamaha No Wake Mode, it handles better than an outdrive. Anyone who owns an SX 190 should get these right away to dramatically increase their boating experience. Sincerely, Pete Brown

  • I purchased your combo for the above boat. Easy Install, thanks, it's great. I talked to Yamaha Tec. Support, and the person I talked with said she has been constantly hearing about your product but did not see your Web Page, so I directed her to look at it.... This product makes my low speed handling MUCH BETTER, and Wake Trapping is not a problem anymore. Thanks again for the product, it was well worth the cost and effort to install it (took all of 15-minutes).
