Sturdy or hard straws for straw rockets? Answered

What is a good source for sturdy straws of plastic tubing that can be used as  an Ultimate Straw Rocket.   It would be good if the straws did not melt with hot glue as cheap thinner straws do.

Use a Bic Stick type pen barrel. You can get a bag full of cheap ones at most Dollar stores.

I just roll paper around a pencil and bind it with tape.

Take a look at the options at McMaster-Carr. "Tubes for Fabrication" or "Bushing Stock" may be what you want, depending on the wall thickness.
