From what i remember it does not, but;

Even if it does have printing on the side of it, all you need do is get a swab of cotton wool, dab a bit of rubbing alcohol (Isopropyl alcohol)on it and gently rub off the printing-it does NOT ruin the tubing, nor cloud it thumb.gif

I learned this trick a long while ago, when i had bought some Feser tubing that had external printing.



Mastercleer tubing-no problems whatsoever up till now-nearly 2 months usage, although, i would still rather use Durelene wink.gif

7/16 btw and no kinks-in fact it's very pliable.

All tubing eventually gets clouded to some extent (or smokey as you put it) wink.gif

The cheap stuff that comes with their kits is notorious of plasticizing quickly. I've heard their regular tube they sell separately holds pretty good.

I got separate tubing because i didn't want to use dyes just distilled water, Got there black 7/16.

I use Durelene in my setup, which many have recommended if you're using Mayhem dyes. This stuff does bend fairly easy, but doesn't kink unless you're connecting 2 things fairly close together at an odd angle.

i shall try some, i just don't want plasticizer in my pump/res etc tongue.gif


Aslong as it doesn't kink as easily as master clear does and its quite flexible then itll be perfect

TBH, I'm considering switching to the Elegant White from Primo....
Will it get noticeably clouded? Thanks!
What's your tubing btw?
edit:
I meant by what is your tubing rate by your satisfaction (one to ten), sorry if I was misunderstood
