No they did not open for Phil Collins at Madison Square Gardens in 1980.

This incredibly stiff piece of 12mm carbon fiber composite is sold as rod not as a shaft.  How concentric is it. I put it in the lathe with the steady rest and measured variation in height as I rotated it.  The very end moved .046".  This does not seem very far off.  I could turn that much off reducing a 12mm rod to about 10.9mm.  Perhaps starting with a 13mm rod and turning it down by the same amount.
