We have had a much higher demand spike than normal for this tube, and we ripped through the 300 feet we had in stock before last Friday evening.
My Tygon supplier has authorized us to ship in lieu of the Durelene, Tygon R3603 7/16 x 5/8 (AAC00033)
Would you be interested in this instead at the same price?
No! the reason the Durelene is shipping so fast is because it doesn’t plasticize like all the other brands of tubing do and that’s why I ordered it haha. Actually I’m in no rush for the tubing, just planned on swapping out my primo chill with this when it came in. Please keep my order the same, I will wait for the Durelene.
Then they replied with this
I'll keep your order handy. I am aware of what has been posted about the Durelene not clouding up, but like R3603 it does have plasticizer in it.
The truly plasticizer free stuff is a lot more expensive.
I'll let you know as soon as we get more in, the best ETA I was given was 7-31 - Saint Gobain was completely out and has to run it for us.
Nice to see it out of stock
it means this thread did speak OUT LOUD

This is only matter of time. They going to wipe all the shelves with this crap tubing and start selling some good stuff at low price. that's why I have and will keep saying don't buy anything that cloud's bad and generate creme cheese inside
like Primochill LRT. I know a lot people like colored tubing and it does looks nice but if you look the other side ( your hardware and you pocket $$ ) it wont pay the damage.
Tomorrow i will have some new update in all my tubing Main RiG ( Clear tubing + Distilled water + Kill Coil / Plasticizer Test Bench RiG Distilled Water + Mayhems red Dye.
