G'day kiwipom.
The add says each. Does that mean 1 rod or a pair. For the price (which is competitive) I'd say pair.
Put in direct link, it took me a while to find it.
Cheers

How much are the rods from thunder engineering nowadays? I bought mine over 5 years ago when they were 250 gbp ish a pair (from memory). Thunder Eng. would do better if they had online ordering, but I found them easy to deal with via email/phone.

hi guys, yeah shipping may be the problem for Brits but this side of the world may be the go, i bought my billet rods from S.R.M. some years ago when it was 3$s to the pound,  including shipping they were $900.00 for the pair, cheers
