    Hi,

    Anyone know where I can buy spacer rings like the one in the picture? Needed for sizes 18, 20, and 22. Thanks!

    matagi yes, but you can buy some carbon fiber tube on ebay, usually in lengths of 500mm. cut it to lenght. Note, don't buy 20mm od thinking it will be right size for a dsp-20 for example. Another member here pointed that out to me.
    Matagi takes awhile to get and even worse now, I would guess. If you need the long nut, matagi is a sure bet.

    Thanks guys. I ordered from Matagi. Not cheap and but nice stuff. Shipped and arrived less than a week after ordering. Would highly recommend if price is not a concern.

    Wish there was someone in the US that offers similar for less cost.
    The carbon fiber idea doesn’t appeal to me but it sounds like a reasonable alternative.
