Carbon fiber would be plenty strong enough for such an application. The fun part would be finding the size that is big enough to handle the load, but stay small as possible. I guess with the BMB you would want to get CF rods the same diameter as the stock aluminum spreaders so that you could reuse the ends on the stock spreaders.
Somewhere in the gargantuan Bridge Hammock thread I found a source for carbon fiber puch rods that were made to be compressed from the ends. If I remember they were not to expensive.
