          These rods were needed to extend a pieced-together rig. They are sturdy and do their job. Can't ask for more.

              These are exactly like any other pair of 15mm rods you would buy, just for a lot less money! Perfect build quality and exactly like my 18" set I had from Redrock micro that I lost.

                  They worked perfectly. Was worried they would be of less quality then more expensive rods but was pleasantly pleased of correct sizes.
                  Do wish they were threaded on ends but you get what you pay for.

                        These rods are 18 inches long. There's two of them, and they're black. I don't think they bend. They're 15 millimeters in diameter. They work! What more do you need at this price?

                                  I tried to pick up some cheaper rails on flEaBAY. You guessed it. Didn't fit into any of the clamps. Ordered the iKan rods from B&H and they fit perfectly.

                                  Lesson learned.

                                      They work exactly as advertised. Be aware that these rods are not threaded for extensions.

                                            I used these rods to build my own DSLR shoulder rig. Everyone else charges $ + for carbon fiber rods when these are fine.

                                              A while back I ordered the iKan Stealth V2 shoulder mount system for my Canon XF300. I have been using that system as my complete base rig for my camera setup. As I began purchasing more and more add-ons (monitor, wireless mic receiver, etc...) it became clear that 12 inch rods that came with the system weren't going to cut it. Having been quite pleased with the quality and durability of my iKan rig, I decided to go with these iKan rods to expand upon it. I made a good choice.These rods are amazingly high quality for their price. They are hollow in the core, making them lightweight, but are still extremely durable. They do not flex or give at all. They have a great anodized finish that doesnt chip or flake with little bumps and scrapes. I'm very happy with them.When it comes down to it, rods are the heart and soul of any camera rig. And, just like a building foundation, you want them to be sturdy and secure. These definitely do the trick, and at a cost that won't break the bank.Just a note: These rods are hollow cored as I mentioned earlier. You can hold them up and look right through them. They have no end caps and are not threaded at the end like some other brands. I would have ranked these 4 stars because of the lack of this feature, but I was fully aware when ordering that they were not threaded at the ends. Therefore, they are 5 stars for what I knew I was ordering.
