Hello, can you send me a sketch ... draw it on paper, then take a photo of it, then post the photo here using the paper clip icon at the right end of the tool bar, or the 'attach files' link to the left of your 'send' button.

Honeywell does not make such a flexible rod, but a fishing pole blank might work well.

We can go from there.

Let me know what you think of this, they come sections.

those are about 1/4" in diameter and flexible, might be good for your application.. they screw together to get add length.


These are all solid rods, hollow tapered fishing rod stock might work better.

We can go from here without any time limits as needed.
