It was easy to cut it with a saw, and to give its shape to make it fit in the kite.

Found this again!! I love this. We're going to try to start selling these as kite making materials in the store this month.
Fiberglas tubes are a better solution for most kites and don't cost much if any more than those solid rods. http://www.kitesandfunthings.com/Products/Fiberglass-Tubes-and-Rods__FGTUBEROD.aspx
Carbon tubes are best and cost twice as much. http://www.kitesandfunthings.com/Products/Pultruded-Carbon-Tubes-36__CFPULTTUBE36.aspx
