25cm long (cut down from 2m) at a 45 degree angle. That's for Effetre-type rod lengths. The angle makes it a bit easier to see the colour. Sticking out a little at the front and back. I have each...

I've been flattening the backs on all of mine (colour or no) because I find it a bit more comfortable to wear if they can't roll from side to side.
