I have no first hand experience but most are hollow or solid stainless steel. Where oh where do you live? Maybe we can find some help for you.

That is a great looking table.  What kind of bearings did you use for the rods?

Also looks like you have the two bar and the three bar switched.  The two bar should be near the goalie and the 3 bar is in the forward/offensive front.

The bearings are from classic foosball table,  If you want I can upload a photo. Switched rods is my mistake I had to my mind the classic system from football 3-5-2 but plays good, it's more difficult to score!
