Just ordered mine, plus the extender, which apparently I will never need. But I don't know, the stated minimum for HH Exp is 13 feet, and my Claytor is even longer, so the heck with it, I got it. But, in order to get the free shipping on the stand, I needed $6 more. I couldn't find anything at that price I needed, so I ordered am $18.95 Suunto compass. Total for stand, extender and shipping: $96.71.
Maybe I can return the extender if I don't really need it, but shipping would probably eat me up.
