Kevlar vs Carbon


I am starting my SW2 but I have no kevlar to wrap the boom with. I do have some carbon tow. Do you think this would be good enough?

Thanks,
Steve

Assuming this is just a wrap around the boom in front of the fin to prevent the boom from splitting; The answer is yes. Almost anything would work, including a little fiberglass wrap.
