Re: A good idea ... BUT!!

Just buy some carbon fiber cloth and use some of your epoxy to create your own ferule. I bought about 2 yards of carbon fiber (I think it was 60") cloth and made a complete paddle.
Wrap 1" pvc pipe with some cling wrap of your choice, or wax it, then lay the carbon up around the pipe. Two layers will probably be enough, especially if you put them on bias with each other.
Sand smooth after the layers have cured, then add another really thin layer of epoxy for a comfortable feel. The other option is to create a foam blank and just lay up a complete carbon fiber GP.
