Rated 5 out of 5Â by Larryjoe one size fits allmost every sink
May need a drill to help install. Rod holder on sinks adjustment holes may be smaller than rod size.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Doug Non-rust pivot ball
The non-rust pivot ball is easy to install and functions smoothly. I don't expect to have to replace these for a long time due to their non-rust plastic material.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by markj99 New improved version?
This is a versatile repair kit, that includes a choice of three sizes of balls that will fit nearly any pop-up drain out there. The materials are quality ABS plastic and brass, so it should last a long, long time.
Danco must have improved the design, because I found none of the issues other reviewers complained about. For example, the rod is now threaded on both ends, so you don't slide the appropriate-size ball onto the rod, you screw it onto the rod. That eliminates the problem of the ball sliding off the rod after a period of use. Yet the instruction sheet in the box still says to "slide" the ball onto the rod!
However, the balls are not threaded, so you are basically "cutting' threads into it as you screw it onto the shaft. And that's the reason I didn't give this 5 stars: You have to be careful to keep it aligned as you turn it, so the threads get cut cleanly. But once it's screwed onto the rod, it's securely attached.
A big 'plus' is that the rod is SOLID BRASS, not that cheap chrome-plated steel that rusts away after a time -- precisely the reason we're all here having to shop for new rods!
Some reviewers complained that the rod is too long for their cabinet. I didn't have that problem, but if you do, it's easily solved with a hack-saw, or even a stout pair of wire cutters. Brass is EASY to cut, and cutting the rod won't cause it to corrode, the way a chrome-plated steel rod will, if you so much as look at it too hard! :-)
So don't worry about the negative reviews, which I think might have been for an older design.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Bob99 Non-Standard, without a Clip
Almost twice the thickness of standard ball rods. It does come with 3 balls to help improve the chances of fitting. However, it does not even include a metal clip !!! I have my old clip but the standard holes are too small to allow this Non-Standard shaft to fit through !!! TERRIBLE
