Anyone know the mm diameter of the monitor rails on the ultra 2? They're slightly bigger than 15mm...

Pretty sure they're 5/8" (.625" or 15.9mm).

I believe they are slightly undersized 5/8" so more like .622 If you try to put full sized 5/8" rod it will be too tight. Could be wrong though.

As a follow up, anyone know where I might buy a 12" set of these rails? The 6" currently holding my monitor are shorter than I'd like..

 

Best,

Try Robin at Tiffen Pinewood (rthwaites@tiffen.com) - pretty sure the Ultra1 had longer rods for use with the UltraBrite. Sounds like you're using the shorter CRT ones. If the U2 rods are the same then try those, Robin will have them I'm sure.
