Wouldn't be a bad idea of you as KAM putting that info in the BlackStar for
a report.  It would reach more people and it wouldn't cost you anything.

> Greetings!
> I've received reports about problems with the following types of
> fiberglass.  I strongly recommend NOT buying fiberglass shafts (for arrows
> or bolts) from the following places :
> 1. "Generic" rod sold by Gene Bolton Sales
> 2. Rod from Tencom Ltd., a supplier for GBS
> 3. MSC Direct (an on-line and direct supplier with nationwide outlets). We
> do not yet know the manufacturer of the rod MSC sells, but we are working
> on it.
> I recommend the following types of fiberglass:
> 1."Extren" brand of rod manufactured by the Strongwell Corp.
>  http://www.strongwell.com. Anyone can call the Strongwell Corp Sales
> Dept at 276-645-8000 and get the name of vendors close to them.
> 2. Maclean fiberglass rod manufacture by Maclean-Fogg.. One place to
> purchase this is Northstar Archery http://www.northstararchery.com, which
> sells cut to length shafts made from Maclean fiberglass rod.
> Normally, I wouldn't recommend a particular supplier/vendor. However, in
> this case, I feel I need to let people know where to get good fiberglass
> rods (that is safe for battlefield use).
> Our testing has shown that the Extren 500 rod and Maclean fiberglass rod
> much safer and stronger.  When we have tested and found more (safe)
> acceptable brands of fiberglass, I will add them to this list.  If there
> are any questions, please direct them to me.  We are looking further into
> this problem.
