The one I acquired have only two inches of bar but have a screw-on mount for 15mm extension rods. Can anyone recommend where I could find some?

The ones Ive managed to find online dont seem to have the mount need to screw onto my lws.

 

Thanks!

@Francisco: did you end up finding your answer? I'm looking at getting a LWS-3 and would like to know too!

Are LWS-3 the same as those on SR1,  II ?

If so you could just switch between short and normal LWS rods.  The normal (long) rods come up on eBay a lot.

@Greg: From what I understand, the SR1 & SR2 do indeed take the exact same LWS-3.

 

I found out that the only way to add extensions to the LWS-3 is to find a somewhat 'rare' extension set, which isn’t a simple screw, but rather a plug and lock system. Apparently they are only 2 inches themselves...

 

Will have to keep an eye on eBay, or consider using a different rod system.
