This is a durable, cross-linked 2lb foam which outlasts pipe insulation, fishing noodles, and similar inferior foams. MC is firm, durable, and features an excellent cell structure for carving and plastidipping. Like all Warlord Sports tubes, MC Tubes are extruded as a single piece and have no glue or joining seams to interfere with your weapon carving or construction. Available in both 2lb (Standard) and 4lb (Tough) densities.
Comes pre-formed into a 24" x 2.6" octagon with a half-inch hole, but is otherwise completely solid. To get the most out of this foam make sure and use it with a constant diameter half-inch core such as .505 kitespar. Use with a tapered core will lead to premature breakdown. For use in heavy foam combat such as Amtgard, Belegarth, and Dagorhir make sure and apply an even, overlapping layer of plastic tape to the striking edge of the foam underneath the cover.
