I think Central Hobbies recommends using JB Weld, and I am sure you rough them up first.

If you're not in the trees you're not trying hard enough.

Hi Northern Boy
I get my carbon fibre arrow shafts from a local archer who in turn gets them from an archery supplier in North Bay. I pay about $20 for 4 but maybe this was a "favour". I have used them on a 60 and 120 size aircraft. The ends have inserts of 1/4-inch hardwood dowels trimmed to fit inside, then tapped for 4-40 or 2-56 rods and glued with JB Weld. The outside has an aluminum tube slip fit over it, but lashing with something like dental floss (it's really strong) will also protect the end from splitting.

If you are interested in the archery supplier, let me know and I will try to find the information for you.

I have used the ones from great hobbies 4-40, the barb ends are a tight fit into the carbon rod, 3/16 if I remember right. My LHS had the rod at the time. I JB weld the ends in but make sure you figure out a way to keep the end from backing out. The seal they make build a slight pressure in the tube when you push them in and the ends will back out slightly before they set. I just put the rods assembled on my bench and clamped a piece of wood to the bench up against each end. I used 2 rods made with these on my 42% Edge rudder, each one to a 5955 servo and have not had any problems as of yet.
