    May want to call Hipshot and ask. I had the same issue and they sold me one for $17.

    I would suggest making it shorter. A stock rod, to me, is too long and gets in the way at times. When I use it I have it sticking far out in front, which looks odd - but it's easier to work with and store with the rod attached.

    Whatever length you decide on - you don't *have* to make it the same length, or have the bend in the exact center - you might want to try wrapping the back end with a cloth or sick it through a solid foam rod ("caulking backer rod"). It's FAR more comfortable than a bare metal bar sticking you in the side!
