Do those StewMac CF rods have a definite "grain" to them? In other words, do the fibers actually run the length of the rod?

Because I've heard that some "CF" rods are just a mix of epoxy and graphite powder; unless they have that lengthwise fiber orientation, they're really not helping all that much.

the stewmac rods "grain" is running lengthwise,pretty much....but graphite is not wood,the physical properties are much different.

dead spots are caused more by poor construction than type of neck...I stopped using carbon fibre long ago,and still have no problem.I believe it to be more about tight fits and good glue spread.

Just from the little research I've been doing the past couple of weeks, (for making some motorcycle parts), it seems you can get carbon fiber with different fiber or "grain' orientation. It also seems there is a worldwide shortage. I'm guessing due to the new Boeing airliner.
