Purchased a Ludwig Acrolite 14x5.5 black galaxy. The whole tension rod (not lug or insert at 1o'clock position) is stripped on the batter

What is the diameter of the tension rods used on 14x5 acrolites??

If I understand your question correctly, all tension rods (except DW) are 12-24. As for length, generally 35-40mm, depending on the drum.

I think its 1" 1/8" as those are the smallest Ludwig sells I need someone to confirm this for me

Only one of your tension rods is stripped, right? Can you not just measure it and find out what length you need to replace it with?

You're just looking for a replacement tension rod, right? Any brand will fit a Ludwig snare. Any music store on earth would have them. You could even order one from Amazon if there are no music stores near where you live. But don't order from Amazon, it's evil.

Drum factory direct is a good place to get parts. Click here and scroll down.
