... rod length is always measured from below the collar to the end of the threads. I see too many sellers giving the total length of the tension rod, whether is a normal rod for snare drums, toms and bass drums, or T-rods. Here's an example of how NOT to measure tension rods... https://www.ebay.com/itm/10-ORIGINAL...AAAOSwAuJb6GgT

No, these are NOT 1-15/16", they are 1.5" when measured the correct way from below the collar.

OK, I'm done ranting about this!

right, I understand what your saying, as you know not every one measures rods same way, I asked for the rod length, if mine are same , should fit ? but thanks for the lesson.

Hi burgundy! Yes, I noticed that you were asking for the correct measurement, but I just wanted to offer up, to everyone, the proper way to measure tension rods. You'd be surprised at how many think you measure the entire length!

Sorry, posted ad and went away for weekend, (winter is long in Canada),
I need at least nine tension rods to fit a 1969 club date bass drum, the originals are 1 1/16th short of 7 1/2” long, 7” of shaft, 2” of thread,
I have one modern rod that fits but it is only 7” long. Looking for any rod that functions, t handle or not. Blair I believe I bought some parts from you a few years ago, thanks!
