I made up a couple of sets of shooting sticks out of some gloss white fiberglass stakes. I used some rattle can spray, camo colors, to get rid of the shine. That wasn't too smart, as it won't adhere to the non-porus finish. I'm hoping someone can point me towards a paint that will stick. I'd prefer a spray can, but that might not be an option, as I may have to use some sort of epoxy. Any ideas? Also, I used the stakes just to get some measurements, so it was just a prototype. I've been all over the net, trying to find some relatively thin wall carbon fiber tubes for the final sticks, but all I've found have been too pricey for me, $10-15 per foot (3 sets for my sons, included). I'm not interested in the collapsible, segmented CF sticks for sale on the internet. Anyone have any info on cheaper CF options?
