Thanks guys. I guess .1 to .2% will not realy be noticable. If the 11” stick were to shrink 1/8”, it wouldn’t be tight enough any more and could possible pop loose during travel. An eight would be a full 1%.

ajoseph, I probably typed it into the site search box instead of the google. When this site is up the two are a together under the address bar. I automatically go into the bottom box when searching. I thought it was a bit odd that nothing popped up :-))
