How are Secraft pushrods-turnbuckles measured?

I'm wanting to order Secraft pushrods / turnbuckles from f3a but I'm not sure how they are sized. Are the measured over all length or the distance between shanks to shank?

Thanks

As always, I would just ask Mike via email just to be sure....

I got this from the Secraft website for turnbuckles
http://www.secraft.net/shop/step1.ph...20100528061832

It indicates that the length refers to the turnbuckle itself....

I guess I missed that, thanks

I was trying to piece together new links. I was almost thinking I might try the ball bearing links as well. Ever use those?

No problem.

Yes, my Secraft turnbuckles all have ball ends installed.

BTW, I think Mike was running a sale in addition to $5 flat rate shipping....

Mikes add says this week only, but no dates, so I'm not sure if it's starting or ending.

Yes, I have those on a plane currently. No issues whatsoever.
Email Mike regarding the sale or any questions, he is extremely knowledgeable and helpful
