You can order 1K tow from CST. You can get a 200 ft just order 2 - 100 ft lengths and request it to be rolled on one roll.

Dave,

There is a guy who sells it up your way. I believe they're either in NH or ME. I'll look for the address for you. Last time I bought it the spool was just under 24000 feet and IIRC it was about $30, not the $328 that CST is advertising.

Smallest carbon tow Soller lists is 3k unless they have something unadvertised. The have some 1k fabric but I've never seen 1k tow listed on the site.

There's a building shortage of 1k fabrics and the tow is getting harder to find as well. The "usual" sources don't always have stuff lately.

I'll post if I can find it. I've never known soller to carry 1k tow. The guy I was referencing used to sell on ebay alot.
