Had to get a replacement rod just in case the original broke or got used up, and just speaking about the original one that came with the knife, it has held up perfectly, is very strong, and the ferrocerium does not run out or get used up quickly. The rod makes hot sparks, even after being completely soaked after crossing a river. The grip is not as stable as the first rod that went with the ultimate, but is more heavy duty in my opinion as well as it is very easy to locate if you drop it because of it's vibrant colors. As for the locking mechanism, you have to experiment and learn how to get it out quickly and swiftly, but mother nature's best hit couldn't knock this loose!
Its a little short and thin and breaks after a short while but produces a shower of sparks. very nice
