2.5 inch OD, 0.5" wall.  I can get
a 24 footer for $180.  It fits
pefectly over the output shaft of
a W0MLY prop pitch, and weighs less
than 200 lbs.

It would be useful to your argument to provide the
particulars, i.e. mast OD and Wall Thickness.
My guess is you are not talking about 2 inch OD
1/4 inch wall type material here...
