I am - but I am whittling it from a spruce tree from the foothills of the Canadian Rockies which I chopped down utilizing a small hatchet. So I need the aluminum one in the meantime. ;)

I HAVE A FD BOOM, BUT SHIPPING MIGHT BE RETARDED.

Thanks, Ortega. The distance from Whitesboro to here is almost the same as from WindRider in Michigan, which is where I can get a new one. So shipping would be stupid-expensive from both places. I am awaiting a quote. Plus - is your boom close enough for you to take it an accurate measurement? One online source has FD booms about right on, another has it a couple inches short. If it's not at hand, don't bother.

Thanks!

Thanks - the tube would work as I will need to cut it to length. The cutaways make things complicated.
