Sliding Handle Hail Rod - 60"
Incredible strength to weight ratio. 1" aluminum extrusion provides amazing strength in all directions while weighing in at only 2lbs 15oz.
Square profile maintains a 90 degree push to the panel requiring almost no grip pressure to stabilize the tip of the tool.
There is a noticeable difference in fatigue because your arm and hand no longer have to stay tensed up, you can effectively work this rod with an open hand.
Variable tip angles provide a level of precision and accessibility that are unheard of for a bar with this power.
Considering that most rods have a 90 degree tip angle, very rarely does leverage allow for a perfect 90 degree setup to the panel so the tool is on somewhat of an upward angle. Because of that upward angle of the rod, the 90 degree tip is actually entering the panel at a negative angle or slightly pointed back to you.
After much study, we have settled on tip angles that allow for much better attack angle into the panel than the typical 90 degrees found on most rods.
The normal working sides of the tip are on a slight positive angle that keep the push as close to perpendicular to the panel as possible throughout normal leverage setups.
The opposing sides offer a positive and a negative 15 degree tip angle. The positive 15 degrees puts the working tip past the end of the rod for reach into corners or up tight to braces. The negative 15 degrees is for working the back side of a brace.
Sliding handle, possibly the best part.
The carbon fiber handle slides the entire length of the rod, and with a slight twist in either direction, it locks in place. The square bar is amazing for what it offers compared to a round bar, but it is not as comfortable on the hand. The sliding handle gives you the best of both worlds.
With one rod, you can have the precision and the power to work from 2' to 5' in length.
Working a larger area is great, but being comfortable may be even better. Sliding the handle to keep your arm in better alignment for the push is invaluable. No more reaching back or out of position to the handle just so you don't have to get down and get another rod.
Position the handle where you want it for the perfect push every time.
