The arrow shafts I use are standard size and measure .225 ID, I am out of the smaller shafts for bows with an over draw but they are quite a bit smaller. I see a lot of CF suppliers in the RC magazines, have you tried them yet? If not I can look around and see if I have any of there addresses on hand for you.

Goodwinds kites has a good selection of pultruded carbon tubes. The 0.281 OD tube has an ID of 0.186 - very close to what you're looking for. ID on pultruded tubes is nominal - it can vary slightly from batch to batch but usually it's pretty close.
