It's ideal for constructing miniature rockets

That's exactly what I was looking for, and that's exactly what I got. Having these shipped in a box kept them pristine. br>br>They cut cleanly with a sharp X-acto blade. br>br>There isn't much else to say other than having these shipped in a box kept them pristine. Using an acto blade, smooth out the surface with the least amount of sanding possible. br>br>One thing I do that you might want to try is Due to the coating on the tubes, I lightly sand the 3 or 4 lines where my balsa fins will attach for better adhesion. This allows the glue to penetrate deeper into the tube's material.

It served its purpose, but it lacked the thickness of the better versions

It's about the same thickness as a regular. It did the job, but it wasn't quite as thick as some of the better ones. Its thickness is comparable to that of a standard toilet paper roll.
