6mm carbon tube

Hi all, anyone have a supplier of 6mm OD round tube? HK is out of stock and it has been a while since it was in stock.

Anywhere else I look its at least $5-$10 each tube

Thanks but I was hoping to find a cheaper option as I want to order 20+ pieces. At HK they are only $2.50 or there abouts and I was hoping to find a cheaper option.

Do you have the link and would you like to share it with us please?

I have bought some of these. Excellent quality (not pultruded!), but very slightly larger than 8 mm. I measured mine at around 8.15 mm.

edit: Ooops, I read the wrong size. However, this size may be of interest to you too! (Early morning senior moment!).
