INFINITube Round Telescoping Tubing & Systems
Rock West Composites proudly introduces the most innovative system of telescoping tubing products using round, carbon fiber tubing. We’ve named it Infinitube, and it’s available in three tubing lineups, TW, for taper wall, V, for versatile, and UL, for ultralight. The INFINITube family is the ideal system for creating collapsed and open booms. Applications include outriggers and push poles for the fishing industry, tripods for photography and engineering, and specific application types, such as extended window washing poles.
Here's a rundown:
19 diameters | 0.250" to 2.500" | This is a "build your own" system.
Characteristics: Large variety of diameters, both standard and intermediate modulus carbon fiber available with more to come. Uses a variety of connectors, or design your own. Allows you to build your own features in, right from the start.
Benefit: INFINITubeV is called “Versatile” because it allows you to build your own features in, right from the start.
9 diameters | 0.875" to 1.875" | Designed for (but not limited to) use with our telescoping flip lever clamps.
Characteristics: Standard modulus, 2x2 twill with some colored options too. As tube diameter decreases, so does each tubes wall thickness. In other words, the largest tube size 9 has a wall thickness of 0.06" and the smallest tube size 1 has a wall of 0.035". This system uses specially designed telescoping flip lever clamps.
Benefit: INFINITubeTW is known for it's "Tapered Wall". Easy to make, customizable telescoping (fully assembled) assemblies. A true plug and play solution.
6 diameters | 0.709" to 1.290" | Designed for (but not limited to) use with our compression rings.
Characteristics: Unidirectional carbon tubing, some fully assembled. Thin wall, light weight for light duty applications such as mic booms or monopods (Currently only INFINITubeUL has fully assembled options) | 4 options | 19" to over 300"
Benefit: INFINITubeUL borrows it's name from its Ultra Light qualities. Lowest weight of all the three tubing lineups. Offers ready to go, fully assembled versions.
