Graphite pole stock and info

Postby zelph » Fri Jan 04, 2008 12:06 pm

Here are a couple sites that sell materials that could be used for pack frames. They also have good information on assembly parts.

Might I suggest carbon crossweave arrow blanks. Much stronger and don't splinter. :mrgreen:

Are golf clubs solid or hollow?

I wonder what the weight difference is between the protruded carbon kite poles and carbon arrow blanks.

Nope No answers on that but it shouldn't be two hard to figure out. Just go to the manufacturers website of the arrow blank your considering and look at the specs or weigh it if you already have it. compare to carbon fiber poles your considering. My guess is they will be pretty close to the same weight as your dealing with the same substances. :mrgreen:

thickness of the wall of the tube will play a major role in the weight of the tube. i've worked with carbon fiber cloth and it is a real epoxy hog. it is my understanding that graphite has the same thirst.
