Yep, that should work fine.
(but pine spines are much cheaper.)

Should work fine,

I tried using arrow shafts. But the truth is it won't make any appreciable difference..but it is fun to try stuff

See, never let people tell you that you can't do something.

That will absolutely work, and be very strong. When I built mine I just used the pine because I had it, but I went all out with 4 carbon fiber 4mm tubes in the pbf for extreme stiffness and another 1 in the elevator to keep that from losing any control due to the massive size of the surface. Worked great.
