I've searched around with google and can not find out the size of the threads for the counterweight rod.

 

Anyone know what size they are?  The part that threads into the mount of the advanced GT GEM mount.

 

Thanks in advance!

Can't you take it to a hardware store and ask them for help?

Hmm just checked mine and IF it's the counterweight rod that screws into the ASGT CG5 mount that I have it's 20mm X 2.0 X 60° thread.

 

I can't seem to post photographic evidence on this thread but it is in my public gallery folder CG5 stuff.

Sorry, my mistake! The thread is 20mm x 2.0.

...and I’m asking why too!
