Hey guys,
My girlfriend gave me a Cobra 75 for my birthday (she rocks:punk:). Anyway, I've never installed one before and wanted to know what y'all thought of this set up:

Cobra 75wx
4' firestick II
cooltech ultramount (license plate mount)
18' coax

I guess I'm most concerned with my choice of antenna. Any issues with the firestick ii or are there better antennas for this location?
Anything I'm missing?

You're gonna need a stud for that antenna. Spring, too.

Would I need a spring with a fire fly antenna? It's got enough flex right?

I know it's been a few days since your post but YES you will want a spring for the antenna. If you set it up right the antenna will be above your roof line by a few feet. Trees like to hit it,the firesticks do have flex to them, but the spring will help it from breaking.
