    Great job, thanks. Let's call it a factor of three, haha.

    Granted it's not exact, but it looks like that swapping an aluminum truss rod for an iron one and switching regular tuners for hipshots leaves in in roughly the same boat, balance-wise.

    I will agree that the iron rods straighten a neck out almost immediately. Would this wear out over time? i.e. will I need to order another pair of rods in 20-25 years? :p

    Because of the price (€ 19,-) vs. postage (€ 8,-) I decided to order two at once so I'm good to go in 25 years time :p

    Hello Warwick people, I am in the Continental United States, just outside of Philadelphia. I am in need of a 2 way removable truss rod. I can not find any distributor here in the USA, the W website does not have a selection for shipping to the USA. Can anyone provide a distributor? I'm repairing a 5 string Fortress bass which suffered a bad fall. repaired the broken neck and now I am in need of a 2 way truss rod. Date of instrument is 1995.
    Thank you in advance.
