Review: I personally haven't had any problem with the lightning rod but some people have had their rods snap. When I got my e-grip, I got all of the TechT mods, including the Lightning Rod. Through discussion with Todd from TechT, my rod is a newer design than the first batches. One of the improvements made over the originals was the replacement of a ball bearing bushing and installed a brass bushing instead. I guess this solved the problem of the bushings disintegrating in the cyclone. Installation is a little tricky the first time you do it but it's pretty easy if you take your time and follow their instructions.

NOTE: If you have an older cyclone housing, you will need to make a modification to it so that the lightning rod doesn't hit the cyclone when cycling. If you don't it could cause problems. If you have one of the newer guns (2006 and after) you are fine and won't have to do any modding.

So far, I haven't had any problems with it and it's a comfort to know that the metal rod isn't gonna fail on me in comparison to the plastic stock rod.
Conclusion: Really good product that is well made and has awesome support. Even if you run into a problem, they will take good care of you.
