I think PETG would be the best place to start, but it will never be as strong as a purchased prop.

Interested to see how you go...
RClifeon did a video but I think he used PLA.

I think it might be possible with a resin printer using that tough/flex resin blend. I broke a piece and there is no sign of lamination.

thanks your for the replay
whats about a nylon filament?
saw flipstick out of printed nylon, described as very rigid but expensive filament, it seems to be near to polycarbonate just from the feeling. probably less vibrations?

 Nylon would be ok but it is very hard to print well, I have some but its too much hassle.
