    Length of standard lower rod

    Just going through organizing metal defecting stuff and have about six lower rods, pretty much all different lengths. So now I'm scratching my head wondering what the standard length of the lower rod is. I went to the replacement parts page, but all I could determine is that it is ten inches shorter than the tall man lower rod.

    Any help here?
    Thanks!

    I got a flock 'o coils, all with rods, and all mine measure 23" .... I don't have any tall man or peewee rods .... Just the standard ones.
    If there's anything I hate worse than diggin' pulltabs, its missin' a gold ring.

    Thank you Andrea! That is some really useful information to hang onto. Pretty much all my lower rods started out as tall mad rods and got trimmed down to suit my needs.
