Just for info sake, I emailed them asking about hollowood tubes larger than the 6" diameter that is posted on thier website. I also let them know what I would be using the tubes for.

I got a response back the next day (impressive), and told me that I had beat them by a couple days. They are in the process of adding 10", 12", 14", and 18" diameter tubes to thier inventory. These will be available in 1/4, or 5/16 thicknesses. Of course, the cost will go up as the size increases. The weight/strength ratio looks to be pretty good too.

I have a very good idea what my next OTA is gonna look like now... :)
