Yup. Just cut them in half if you want better coverage. They're very easy to cut, but they will make your blade dull QUICK. Use a hacksaw or something similar with small teeth and be careful

That should definitely do you

If you're looking for some good carbon, try Vertex Rox 0.8 I just started using it and it's pretty serious stuff as far as carbon goes.
