6/4 I wondered how long it would be before someone launched into this.

    I know quite a bit about titanium alloys from my work in aerospace industry.
    Ti-6Al-4V has been common for a while in machined components, but is much more difficult to draw out into even a plain gauge tube than the regular Ti-3Al-2.5V (and that's not at all easy anyway). I hate to think how hard it must be to make double butted.

    Do I want one? You bet.
    Can I afford one? No
