coiling rod length
Are the rods in this V4 longer than older versions: V2 &1 ? They look longer in the photos, but I'm not sure.

Haven't tried the older kits but in the V4 they're 45mm end to end.

Yes, the V3 and V4 are HUGE compared to the V1 and V2. The total length of the rods is 47mm, with 34mm stick-out from the handle when installed (so, 13mm inside the handle). The handle itself is 14mm diameter by 75mm long.

All in all, it's a lot easier to use than the V1/V2 size, especially if you want to keep the coil on the rod when you install it. (It can be easier with some atties to remove the rod from the handle.) It's also easier to make spaced coils (with the V1/V2, you could easily run out of rod when pulling the coils apart).
