Have you tried www.roffeetvhobby.com? They don't have an online store so all orders are done manually by mail, but their service is great and their shipping is very reasonable. I recently ordered CF pushrods for tail control on my Corona so I'm sure Mike can you set you up.

I've seen most people go for 1/8" rods (CPR-05). If it's for the Corona tail you'll want 2-56 threads (CPR-20/CPR-35?). If mikefaith sees this post he might be able to help with that site's parts.

If you get from Roffee, all his rods are metric. 1/8" is about 3.1mm, so I went for 3.5mm OD. ID was 2mm I think, but I can confirm that later this week if you can wait. Otherwise just say you want ID to fit Dubro 172 threaded rods.

One thing to keep in mind for shipping is the length of the rods. Mike's rods are 40" long, but you can easily make two rods for the Corona tail by cutting those in half. Mike is happy to do that for you prior to shipping which should save you in costs.
