I used a BT-101 tube from Semroc,  and wrapped it with three layers of 5.7 oz  CF.  BT-101 is thinner wall than the Estes tube that came with the kit, so 3 layers brought it back up to the correct  OD.  I first tried to use the stock tube and peel the outer layers but it didn't peel so well like LOC tube does so I gave up and went with the BT-101.  For fins I used the stock plywood  cores covered with 3 layers of CF each side followed by two layers tip-to-tip.
