I can say for sure Zzzooms original rod wore out as when the time came to cut and re-head the rod it would NOT take new heads and that in fact is one of the root issues as it is the recommend way to test old rod for work hardening

The Navtec turnbuckle threaded sections are also a fail point and have a service life at which point they are a throw away item
