Spigot / ferrule??


I have tried searching but nothing seems to answer my specific questions. Sorry if I've missed something obvious.

I'm looking to change the feather on my straight shaft Werner Player and have hit a bit of a brick wall regarding the spigot.

I've tried Werner, but they will not supply them; they will change the feather if I send the paddle to them, but it costs $50 plus the shipping each way so it'll cost around $100 total!

I've searched the internet and found a few ideas like oak dowel of aluminium tube but I'm sure there are better options....

Am thinking solid or hollow fiberglass rod / tube but I'm not sure about diameter (and don't want to cut my paddle to measure, just to find I can't find a suitable spigot).

So does anyone know the internal diameter of a standard diameter werner straightshaft?

Does anyone have any better ideas for a spigot and where I might be able to get hold of one (in Canada)?

All advice appreciated. By the way I am looking to have a solid paddle, not a breakdown. I am aware of the potential weakness but am quite happy to do this as I have another paddle anyway.
