I looked into this pretty extensively. There are a number of possibilities
but I have not purchased from any of them.
Cunningham -- highly regarded, they have not made TR rods, but they would
do it, price somewhat less than Carillos
Saenz -- distributed by a company in Florida, I think, made in Venezuela,
look like Carillos, reputed to be superb quality, low price
Pauter -- again, i don't think they have made TR rods, would be willing to
do it, interesting design
