I was on Mcmaster Carr's website to get 1/2" fiberglass rounds. I saw that they have fiberglass tubes (http://www.mcmaster.com/#fiberglass-raw-materials/=gbfl54). Does anyone know if these would be similar to bandshoppe? If not similar, would it be better to get than the solid rounds?

On a side note, I decided to pick up some of the puzzle mat from walmart. I should shave down the textured surface right? Thank you for any replies!

Yes, most kitespar is graphite, but there is also fiberglass tube spar.

Really they don't build a bad sword, but you have to add too much weight to bring the weapon into bel standards. I like the fiberglass rods cause by the time I finish balancing them, im right at 12-14 ounces.

Most kitespar used in Belegarth is from GOodwinds.com or Edhellen and is fiberglass.
