We are now selling rods with or without a handle.  They are perfectly usable either way,  but the sliding handle provides comfort and grip and can be removed from the end of one rod and installed onto any other rod of the same extrusion size.  With the tips removed from the rod the handle will just slide right off the end allowing rod length changes that take only a few seconds.

24", 30", 36", 48" and 60" rods accept the SMALL handle

72" and 78" accept the LARGE handle
