Does anyone know where I can get carbon fiber tubing, preferably with the "carbon fiber look" with a 12mm O.D.? I want to use it in ice rod handles both for appearance and as an arbor for mounting the blanks in the reel seat.Thanks!

If you want hard carbon tubing, search the internet. It's out there.

I recently bought some from a very common online seller. I bought 25mmX1m for less than $30. You may find it cheaper. I have used it with a cheap EVA cut up and used as arbors for a rod I am currently building. It looks like it will make a very comfortable handle, especially good for getting ut of a rod holder under stress.

Fishing is not a sport, it is an art.

Thanks a lot, Norm. Looks like they're going to have what I need and the price is fair.
