Ok, first off, if the person selling this is a member here, sorry if I offend you!!!

Take a look at this auction, and tell me what you think.

100% GLASS ANVIL BLACKSMITH FARRIER LIGHTNING ROD -TOOL - eBay (item 260512387484 end time Dec-04-09 10:16:18 PST)

Lightning rod my butt, it's an Avon perfume bottle, which is VERY common, married to a few pieces to make a "lightning rod". Bet it would hold up well under harsh wind, rain and-he he-lightning!

I couldn't sleep if I sold this to someone without divulging the true nature of the components.

Avon bottle or not it appears to be what it is advertised as. The bottom and top of the bottle are probably drilled out, making a continuous rod. The description also lists it built around a UL/ANSI listed lightning rod and base hardware. While I think it is a neat idea, I'll pass anyways.

Sadly their website is flagged by google as a malware site.
