Our range of RC rods consists of 2 patented models and the standard models on the market.

RC ARD Premium Stem

The 1st RC rod with the revolutionary Snap

  • The only RC rod with additional hardness treatment on the threaded ends for increased strength
  • The strongest thread on the market due to its increased load-bearing capacity
  • The only RC rods with simultaneous screwing on two threads, allowing the rods to be quickly connected and disconnected from each other.

The ARD thread is the strongest on the market, often lasting longer than the rod itself.
High elasticity of the cold drawn steel outer rod, and high strength alloy of the inner rod.
Better flow performance compared to all other RC rods.

  • Unique, heavy-duty single thread design
  • High elasticity of the cold drawn outer rod and high strength alloy of the inner rod
  • Lighter due to special material and design
  • Increased airflow performance, with a pressure drop of only 0.05B between connections!
