How long are your Slow Stick Axles?

This winter I bought a pair of DuBro park flyer skis to use on my Slow Stick. I found the axle length (just under ˝”) to be too short to mount the skis even when I omitted the inside wheel collar. . I modified the skis so I could use them on the Slow Stick and posted the modification.

Now I read in the May issue of Backyard Flyer that they used the skis on the Slow Stick and as they put it “No modification to the gear or axles is necessary”

Am I the only one with the short axle length or did Backyard Flyer happen to get one with longer axles?

There are no longer axles... they are all the same ... short! I generally bend new ones if I want to use other wheels!
