Look on ebay for the carbon tube and make your own outer tube from fibre glass, thats how i do mine
Ask the supplier of the tube to cut it to the length you want

I have used Aluminium Warehouse quite a bit . Very cheap and custom cut to length required. When I last ordered I also ordered other bits like aluminium angles to use to make building jigs and long squared sections to usd as clamps / straight edges etc. Here is the link **LINK**
sorry didn’t see whether u specified carbon . Anyway it might be useful for some

+1 for Easy Composites for fast service
Only note, some of the tubes ID's have a seam and hence another carbon tube will not slide inside. Tried all sorts of ways to clean the inside out, but failed so far!
Anyone tried Bucks Composites?
