All About MGS
Max-Gain Systems, Inc. carries a complete line of fiberglass tube and rod , including fiberglass round tube, square tube, and round solid rod. Most of our product line is designed to ” sleeve ” inside adjacent sizes, allowing almost any custom length and wall thickness, while at the same time retaining the ability to be shipped via FedEx! Be sure to see our new fiberglass push-up masts page ! We are quite unique in that we sell our wide product line in small (even single piece!) retail quantities, which allows individuals and hobbyists, as well as industry prototyping research personnel, to economically try multiple possibilities before buying larger quantities. Check out our fiberglass sample section below.
Max-Gain Systems, Inc. is the top wholesale supplier of fiberglass tube and rod to the best-known names in antenna manufacturing, both in the ham radio and military markets. We supply more fiberglass tube and rod to more antenna manufacturers than any company in the world. We also supply fiberglass to many other industries and uses, such as nursery stakes, ultralight aircraft, tool handles, tents, driveway markers, towed aircraft banners, electrical utilities, universities, national laboratories, concrete reinforcement, hinge pins, recreational vehicles, and the inventor with an idea for a new product. We are a unique source for sleeving adjacent sizes, in stock, and in even single piece quantity for prototyping! No need to pay for mill-runs just to see if a prototype will work. Our contacts and relationships allow us to provide a superior product, at lower cost, with the lowest minimums in the industry, while maintaining the capability and capacity for larger orders that can be millions of linear feet.

No square tube included. …||$7.95 – $69.95|| |
QUAD SPREADERS: We offer telescoping, Quad Spreaders with usable lengths up to a total of 26 feet! Telescoping Quad Spreaders are discounted from individual piece prices! See our Quad Spreader Information Sheet for details.
QUANTITY DISCOUNTS: Buying ten or more quantity of one size of fiberglass qualifies for a 10% quantity discount on that item. Fifty or more, of one size, qualifies for 15%, and one hundred or more 20%. Quad spreaders are NOT discounted further, as they are already discounted from individual piece prices .
WHOLESALE/OEM PRICING: If you are a reseller or manufacturer, you may qualify for our factory-direct, wholesale/OEM pricing! SUBSTANTIAL savings are possible with increasing volume, and our customer service is unsurpassed. Email us for quantity pricing.
CONSTRUCTION ADVICE: Available free by telephone. For almost unlimited life, we highly recommend that any fiberglass – even ours which is UV-stabilized – be painted. A sprayed primer coat and flat-black top coat, works best. (See our Max-Tips Info Sheet for details.)
Duties, customs charges, VAT, and / or brokerages fees, (if any might apply for your country) are impossible for the shipper to determine, and are ALWAYS the responsibility of the purchaser. International customers agree to pay any and all additional charges that may be billed to cover these items.
We frequently get questions from customers, asking if we can cut our fiberglass (most of which is stocked in 8 foot lengths) before shipping.
We do offer custom cutting of our stocked tube and rod lengths. Either for getting you under the oversize shipping dimensions or if your project requires certain lengths, we can cut it to length. Cutting is available for a small charge of $2.50 per cut. We bundle ordered goods to minimize overall cuts and only charge for cuts made.
The usual reason is to save a great deal of money on shipping. Shipping can be calculated if you are ordering stock goods in the shopping cart. For special cuts, please inquire here, and we can quote on your needs.
At other times, the customer just wants the cut length accomplished before the goods are shipped so they are ready for a specific use immediately on delivery.
In either case, NO PROBLEM! Simply tell us your cutting instructions here and we can quote.
On shipments from our retail warehouse, there is a cutting charge of $2.50 per cut. If we can bundle several pieces of your order together and cut them all at one time (such as when 20 pieces of small diameter rod is all being cut to the same length) this still just counts as one cut, and the charge is just $2.50 per cut. The number we can bundle for a single cut depends, of course, on the diameter and type of product ordered, but we will always do our best to save you money on the cuts.
*****On whole sale / OEM quantity orders ($400 minimum order) of round tube and round solid rod that we can ship direct from our factory, there is NO CHARGE for cutting.
Tolerances: At our retail warehouse, we do “rough cuts” only, with best tolerance of 1/8 inch. At the factory we have far more elaborate diamond saws, and can easily cut to tolerances of 1/16 inch at no extra charge. Tighter tolerances ARE possible from the factory, but usually carry additional charges. (Inquire) Let us quote on your needs!
Most requested cutting of 8 foot goods to avoid “oversize” shipping charges, examples:
Cutting into thirds, 32″/32″/32″ would be $5.00
Cutting into quarters, 24″/24″/24″/24″ would be $7.50
