On 27.385mhz how well would a ⅛ wave (51.25 inches) antenna work on a cb radio walkie talkie compared to a cobra ha-ta (27 inches) antenna?

The general rule that the longer the antenna physically, the better. Lots of tricks can be played with inductors and capacitors to make the antenna APPEAR to be longer than it really is but adds nothing to the real length.
