Ask and ye shall receive!

Drive Spring - 7 Inches [Pro-Am] 15-SP

I wish I had written down the length of the Armotech/Core springs!
You may need to post a question to get someone to measure the length of a working one!

It doesn't fit in the core type Keebler, I believe.
Check your pierce pin block. IF it's a threaded piece that screws into the lower tube it takes the rap4 type, but if it's a brass block held in by a setscrew then it's the zeus types.

By simply running a 1/4-28 tap through the brass pierce pin block of a zeus type, you can convert them to use the excellent phantom pierce pins. These are easy to order and keep on hand as extras.

Really? They're the only thing that you can reliably find. Miltec, Core and Warsensor aren't much.
Fortunately they really are awesome. I've had them last 700-800 changes, almost a whole season.

As Smith mentioned they are commonly available, on top of that they last a long time and they pierce much more cleanly and with less effort than the stock one.
