Hi guys, Poked around with some searches and didn't come up with anything. Anyways I've been thinking that my end-pin rod is quite a bit too long (not to mention heavy). Now that I'm going to start using a wheel, I was thinking it'd be nice to just stuff the end-pin rod away in a small pocket if it was short enough when the wheel is in use. I'm sure there is over a foot of metal that I don't and will never use since I only use about 4" sticking out the bottom. Can me and my buddy hacksaw go to town and lop the excess off? Is it gonna affect the sound adversely? If I did, I'll still probably save about 4-5" above where I normally use it so the rod continues to stick out into the body. Thanks... you guys are the best!
