round durablock with metal rod in it

Wouldn't that be just perfect? Sometimes I have to use the durablock round block but am skeptical if I know the area isn't pretty straight already so I sometimes reach for my stiffer teardrop block, but has anyone out there put a rod thru a round durablock? Seems like a good idea for the skinny rectangle one too. man, I'm interested in finding out more. Anyone?

If I need an absolutely stiff round durablock I use PVC pipe. A 1/2" diameter is really good at getting into body curves with radii too small for the round durablock to fit completely into.

yeah but that surface sounds kind of too hard and the paper won't sand the same. I dunno, that semi stiff dura block rubber is something I'm very fond of if the darn block can stay straight... but let's be honest, most or all those blocks tweak a little bit but not like the round flimsy one.

Just an idea is to take a piece of metal and wrap it with some sort of foam or other material to give the "give" that you want and use that as a block. Myself if I need a block of a particular shape I use a piece of pine board and carve it to the shape i need and apply some sticky back paper and sand away.. seems to work good on feature lines and such..
