I'm trying to purchase a longer set of rods for my Betz top stage. The stage has a female 12mm thread. When I look tab rods online they all have 1/2 inch 13 male threads at one end and 12mm female threads at the other which does me no good. Why is it this way and where can I purchase the 15mm rods with 12mm male threads

Hey Claus,


May be a particular thing with those rods? I've got some 15mm Zacuto rods I got to use on my sled. Male on one end, female on the other. You're welcome to try and see if they are the right threading.

I got them from Matt Livingston at Abelcine downtown.

Lemme know, I can get them to you early next week.
