You best bet to find exactly what you want is to go through a US
company, unless you
can find one in Canada. There are 2 major manufacturers in the kiting
and Skyshark. I think both of them are capable of doing custom orders. I
know Avia is
because they do cf for medical and other stuff. Skyshark mostly does
just rods, which
are used by other industries like Archery and Model Airplanes. Anyway,
web page is www.skyshark.com and is distributed through
stuff you can get directly from Avia if you are purchasing in bulk. It
kinda depends on what
you are looking for, since their products are different. Are you
looking for pultruded carbon,
wrapped, straight, or tapered rods. Also what purposes?
