I'm looking for a place to find a replacement iris rod that attaches to my baseplate like this one:

I emailed MK-V already but I thought that I would ask here while the email marinated with the MK-V.

Watch out for the hole spacing.

I had and MK-V iris rod and it only seemed to fit the MK-V plate The CP and Pro plates didn't seem to line up correctly. Metric and imperial issues maybe?

Try and get the rod from the same people that made your plate

Is this the correct rod that I need? I can't tell from the information provided on the webpage.
