Hammocks and Other Interesting Ways to Use Composite Rods and Tubes

Thursday, June 9th, 2011

In addition to all of the really cool industrial customers with whom we work (Boeing, Blimpworks, NASA, and so many more), we supply composite carbon and fiberglass rods and tubes to a variety of small businesses and manufactures making some really interesting stuff.  Did you know that you can use Goodwinds carbon and fiberglass as framework for your backpacking hammock?  Check out hammockforums.net for more inspiration.  There are lots of ways to use composites in RC cars, helicopters, and airplanes (especially foamies!).  You can find some really neat RC projects at rcgroups.com and rcuniverse.com.  Some of our customers are also active with LARP, archery, spear fishing, hiking (using composites for hiking sticks), puppet making, and other great hobbies.  How do you use carbon and fiberglass?
