I am having a heck of a time getting the weight off of the front end of the stab. Blair just sent me a new stab rod to replace my 12" black that was peeling. I go to unscrew the weight and it won't budge. So I figure that I wont be using the rod that is peeling I will just take a set of pliers to it and unscrew the weight....WRONG, IT STILL WON'T MOVE!!!!!
