You may be able to find a local source.  This kind of material is more 
common than most people think.  Look in yellow pages under "plastics".

In San Diego, for example, there's a place called Ridout Plastics that 
stocks 10' solid fiberglass rods in various diameters, including 1.25" .  I 
drove over and picked one up.  (a 10' long rod just barely fits in my car.)
