For those who have experienced both, which do you prefer? The Cobra roll element, like the one on CP's Raptor and IOA's Dueling Dragons, or the Batwing like the ones on Top Gun: JTC and Montu. I know they are rather rare as many B&M inverts do not feature these elements (I have not yet had the chance to experience either), so I was curious to see what people have to say about them.

Oh one thing though, the cobra roll on Ice has the best "Oh Crap!" moment of all time (in the front seat :))

I have only experienced Ice's cobra roll and Montu's batwing. Out of the two of them I prefered the batwing because of the g-forces plus you go into the trench. Although Ice's footchopper on the castle wall really added to the cobra roll.
Well not quite... you've also hit Incredible Hulk's cobra roll. I like the Hulk's roll because it's soo big.. It sweeps through the cobra roll, not jerks.
I rode "X" and never went upside down.
While I agree that cobra rolls on B&M inverts are rough, I find the vekoma ones (FaceOff) to be very smooth. Isnt that ironic?

I guess the only batwing element on the B&M's is Montu, and I'll have to get back to you on that in a month.
The funny thing is that the portion of the rolls that consists of half-corkscrews is what can make them smooth or head bangers. Raptor's is a little tough on the ears at the ends of the train, but it's fine in the middle of the train. Alpengeist is blah anywhere on the train.
