I'm really enjoying my current upgrade to a wooden endpin--walnut, courtesy of Ben Bastin (Wooden Endpins | Ben Bastin |) it really makes a difference! My question is about a "plug" when I'm not using it. The endpin is a fixed length and easily installed and removed. However, when I'm not using it I have to reinsert the original stainless steel endpin, just to carry it around. Needless to say, it's taking up a little room in my bag. I've heard that Ron Carter uses a kind of "plug" that goes into his endpin hole when the bass isn't being used. Does anyone know of a 10mm plug, maybe with a rubber tip, that would work for me? What do other wooden endpin users do when the pin is not in use? Wondering if there are any alternatives to carrying around the old rod.
