Default longer stiffer decoy spring

Looking at getting a longer and stiffer spring for the FoxJack that fits my Firestorm. I wonder does FP make one approximately 18 inches that isn't quite so flimsy and stands up a little better than the current stock one?

I don't know if they do or not, but I doubt it. I've noticed our local hardware store has a lot of springs. They range from tiny little things to HUGE sizes. If
I was looking for a longer, stiffer spring I'd try the local hardware store first. If they didn't have what I wanted I'd search online for one.
If you could get by with just a stiffer spring, a piece of duct tape will take care of that.

Thanks Weasel
I already stiffened up the present spring using shrink tape but was hoping for a longer one say 18 inches verses the standard 12 inches as the current one still slaps the antenna on the caller.
