I use 440 rod with an inch threaded end and metal clevises, the rod is cut down to length and then one of the clevis is soldered on. I started doing this with my trainer that I didn't build aboout ten years ago(been away for six years) my first plane I built a Super Sportster 60 was done the same way and it still flys today and it is about 7 years old. I was kinda surprised when just last week I looked inside a students plane and I noticed all the controls were EZ connected, I also picked up a new to me airplane that had the EZ things so I had to buy some rods and clevises.

I have no problem using modified connectors, but I must admit I was concerned at first.

What I do is put the EZ connector in the servo arm, put a small washer over the stud and very carefully "peen" (rivet) the EZ connector so it remains free to turn but on very solid. Remember to put it in the proper servo arm hole, it will not come out once you rivet it! I then make sure I have very good allan set screws that will "bite" into the rod.

The best EZ connectors I got were in England and had threaded studs, washers and nuts to hold in place. They worked very well.

Hope this helps.
