I really can't stand my Cobras (on the raft) any longer. After using posilockers, which have virtually no sliding friction, the Cobras just seem like a lot of work to slide the oar in or out. I started using them because of the range of motion, which the posi's exceed even more. I may go back to regular oarlocks on the raft, it doesn't see anything wild and crazy anyways, just dog floats and multidays.
