Does Masterkleer tubing bend as well as PrimoChill tubing?

Because of your question I decided to go a bit more scientific with it and took pictures of each tubing at specified bend diameters. The results are below.

Primochill at 6"
450

Masterkleer at 6"
450

Primochill at 5"
450

Masterkleer at 5"
450

Primochill at 4"
450

Masterkleer at 4"
450

Primochill at 3"
450

Masterkleer at 3"
450

If you notice, at a 3" bend diameter, the Primochill tubing has a noticeable and very major kink while the Masterkleer does not. It seems as though the Masterkleer actually bends better than Primochill. Also keep in mind the price. I got my Masterkleer tubing for $0.49 a foot, while Primochill is much more expensive.

No surprises there,less plasticizer equals more rigidity.
Nice little DIY demo there,I like.

Basically, based off of this small and very DIY test, I would recommend people buy Masterkleer over Primochill. It bends much better, costs a fraction of Primochill's price, and has less plasticizer, so will likely have less issues when run in a loop long-term. I just tried the same thing with some Tygon 3603 tubing... the results were horrendous.

thats a bit of a strange one. my masterkleer tubing is not very rigid at all! in comparison with superericla's. So more plasticiser = it being more floppy/less rigid? I found that my masterkleer was much more flexible and less rigid than the stuff that came with my Rasa 750 kit. ( which clouded up much worse and quicker than my masterkleer which indicated to me that it would have had more plasticiser in it, or maybe it was just cheap so it leeched out faster) :s all very confusing. Either way after about 3 weeks my masterkleer is clouding, but not as badly as the xspc stuff. When i add the 670 into the loop ill clear out the old tubing. Its a bit annoying because then ill have to break down the loop again after a month of having my gfx card in to clean out the newer tubing, longgggg. How long has plasticiser leeching been an issue? You thought that companies would have sorted it by now!

Less than two weeks of use. I was replacing a fitting and snipped off the end to shorten the tubing run. I wasn't expecting to see anything after such a short length of time, but there it is. Just running distilled with PT Nuke

yep happens pretty dam quickly. I saw some clouding after 1 week. ( not terrible, but noticeable when you have clear tubing) shal;l run this tubing for another month or so then clean it out when i put my 670 in it!

Hay when are the tubing companies going to sort all of this plasticizer problems, we haven't heard not one comment from them! They come off like they care less about the plasticizer problems, no comments so far.

Heres a pic of my loop using Tygon 2001, it takes some inefficient routing and some man handling but its doable.

I wouldnt use it with plastic barbs due to too much friction and it being hard to take off the barb. Also Swiftech fittings have a sharp lip that bites in to the tube so grip is good with compression fittings.

The hardest piece by far is the short one going from graphics card to top rad on the left there, pretty much the limit of the tubing as its a tiny s bend and had to be cm perfect in length.

The long piece on the right is only so long cause I needed the slack to take out the res.
