Since I had the experience of repairing my fastar secondary and removing the corrector - my disassembly fears are gone!

So - I may as well flock the tube and do some other optimizations while I'm in there.

So - other than flocking, what would you folks recommend for an XLT C11 tube from 2012?

I'd prefer not taking the primary cell off - and also since it lives outside in my OBS, I don't really want to do cooling fans.

Any benefit to going CF for the tube? I've heard good and bad.
