    I am trying some new guide wrapping techniques and designs with various finish adhesives. I am looking for some graphite rod sections to practice on. Does anyone know a good place to get some samples sections or discarded blanks

    www.utmostenterprises.com they'll sell you some sections for cheap! So far I've bought all my rod building stuff there including scrap blank sections to practice on.

    Arrow blanks from your local big box sportsmans store also work.

    They may have free scraps as well.
