tailwheel bracket sizes, which one's better?

Hey guys. THe name pretty much says it all.
Can anyone give me the length for these tailwheel assemblys:

(Dubro 40 size): http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXD850&P=7

(Dubro micro size): http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXDCT9&P=7

(Sullivan 20 - 40 size): http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXFV46&P=7

Just so you know, this would be going on an overpowered 49" ws 24oz parkflier.

If there is any other tailwheel, or a specific out of those listed, that you would recomend, uhh, please do. Also, I'd prefer it if it were under 2 / 2.5" long - the actual part, I mean, not the wire and wheel.

Thanks a lot guys.

IMHO, sullivan makes the best one. However, it's not well suited to a lightweight electric model. The .20-.40 size uses the same plastic bracket as the giant scale size...

I found a 1/2" diameter Sullivan tail wheel that is much nicer then the Micro Du-Bro and is very light.


Cheers,
Jim

Ok,but I still have a few questions.

first of all, let me repeat:
Can anyone give me the *length* for these tailwheel assemblys.

second: Does anybody own any of these and can give me the weight for them.

third: LJH, *that's* more of what I was looking for. Which one is that, though, can you give me a link or the official Tower Hobbies name for it, or something?

Fourth: what the heck does IMHO stand for?

Post tonight, uhh, ok. Has been a week? What's a PN? Sorry, I'm just low on the abbreviations.
Anyway, does anybody have the length of any of these tailwheels?

LJH, are you still listening? Please, it would help me very much if you gave more info on the "1/2" diameter Sullivan tail wheel". Are you talking about the tailwheel bracket, or just the wheel? Please tell me the official Tower Hobbies name for it or even better, a link.
Thanks.
