    repurposedPRODUCT: "Many years ago I toured a factory that made fiberglass arrows for competitive archery. If a rod did not meet the high straightness requirements necessary for archery, it was rejected. He then sold those rejected rods as stiffeners for kites. He said he actually made more money from the 'ejected' kite rods than he did from his arrow business." - Michael Risso 

    Q: Like Michael, with his arrows, do you know of another company that has created a new product out of a byproduct or waste from their operation?

    A: We use the formula: (Inside Diameter + Outside Diameter) x # of wraps (middle of roll to outside) x .131 = footage on the roll.
