It has to fit compactly into my car afterwards, so it's essential that it can be broken down. I still need a recommended thickness for the pipe to thread. also a total weight would be nice. I can go either 1/4 inch thickness or 1/8th, I would love to know what the standard is.
I can't really comment on thickness or standard for threading sorry. I join my rig with ferrules machined to fit, just slide and lock with a pin.
