Talked to Andy today.
He is tracking the rods and he should have them in stock sometime next week.
Trust me...he is just as ready for the shipment to arrive as we the customers are.
He recently added some T-shirts to his site and the 2XL is showing Out Of Stock, but he has them and is going to get that rectified on the web site shortly.
Just keeping those of you that are interested in the loop.
Ah, the joys of running a business.
