I was wondering if there were any differences between the Idahone 12 inch Ceramic Rod and the Messermeister 12 inch Ceramic Rod.
Here are links to both:

The Idahone is probably a finer grit than the Messermeister. The Idahone is said to be around 2k+ grit. I think the Messermeister is somewhere in the 1.2k grit range.
With ceramic rods finer is usually better. I think the Idahone would be the safer bet if your looking for one.

It says on the CKTG page that the Idahone is 1.2k...is that true? Also it says on the Messermeister page that it is also 1.2k. I have the Messermeister, but if the Idahone is better, i'll get that one along with the richmond diamond steel and the Kaneshige Wa-240 gyuto

If you already have the Messermeister just stick with it. I doubt there is enough of a difference to justify buying a new rod. Just use light strokes and be careful and you'll be fine.
