    Are they just not any good? Manufacturing defects? What gives?

    I much prefer bowling ball shaped gear. Good for at least two things.

    On second thought, all the wonderful gear that is NOT advertised for sale
    is the most desirable of all, well-loved and -maintained by its owners and
    never, never to be sold.

    If you don't see it in the classifieds, it's the best ever.

    Maybe the world ran out of round things.

    I know squares fell out of favor in the late 50s and into the 60s ;)

    Squares are also rectangles where all sides are equal.

    I built a QRP MOPA CW rig on a round cakepan, but I will
    never sell it!

    The elliptical shaped ones are the rarest and most desirable of all.

    I think you have to do that rectangle math to get the answer.

    I dunno. Rectangular stuff is so last century.
