hmm yes a stick is not gonna be strait enough. what i would do is mabey get pvc that is thin ehough,putty up the hollow part and then wrap it in a thin sheet of rubber. of cource wiht the rubber it will probably have to be maintained and lubricated.

Make it out of a old thread spool maby?? Old C cell flash light?? Wooden dowel/closet pole might be about that big. Use a old pill bottel, i seen someone here allready used a pill bottel and said it worked great. The sky is the limit!
