Review by: FavoniusWhen is 8mm not 8mm?
To be fair there is a warning that comes with many carbon tubes and rods that they may not fit together when the i.d. of one is the same number of mm as the o.d. of the other. I needed to sand the rod to fit the carbon tube I had. This is probably the same with all pultruded carbon (Roll wrapped carbon maybe different). It's messy (black powder) but I found wet and dry to be the best way. Fitting said rod in an electric drill works well for lengths up to say, 300mm.

Just ordered a 8mm Carbon what can I say it's a carbon rod but a top quality rod and much better than I expected
Review by: Tilman BaumannSolid
Well, what should I say. It is a very solid piece of carbon. I liked the price and it was quite easy to cut (I was concerned about that).
Works well, as you would expect.
Shipping was very fast.
