I think there is a thread in this section. I had talked about this a while back I think also.

I have an extra set I've been wanting to play with. I'll be home tonight and I'll link/reference some material if I can find it.

better late than never..
I have a set its been a while but iirc I removed an inch. I cut like this || I should have notched each side and lowered the rod location. mine were also reinforced they have been good for several events and a couple test session.
