Great Source of fiberglass rods at SAM's

I just purchased a kite at SAM
s for $3.95 and it had 20 lenghts of fiberglass rods and a couple of carbon rods.

It was a kite of a Jet fighter plane and they use the rods to make the ouline and body....

I bought the same thing at the beginning of the summer for $10...

the rods are great for spars...leading edges...etc...

if you have a sam's check it out.....these are costing me 15 cents a piece... Most are 3mm or about 1/8 inch with a couple a little bigger...and the longest is 37 inches...with many in the 18 -24 inch range....

it's a great deal....but try to get one of the fighter planes...I think they have the most rods.....cause I checked several others..
