Default Carbon Fiber Tubes

I'm looking to find some carbon fiber tubes (for a non-RC project). In particular a 10mm flat-to-flat hexagon. Anyone know where I can find such a thing?

I've never heard of cf hex tube.

For years, I've bought cf from http://dragonplate.com/default.asp. The quality of their products is exceptional. Made in the USA

Both of the companies you listed have offered to do special runs for me, but I can't afford it. I need one piece to do some testing with... Once upon a time I found some, but I can't find it now that it matters.
