250mm vs 400mm RES + 5/8" vs 3/4" tubing

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, just wondering what your opinions are on res sizes. Im going to be getting a 900D and I was wondering if I should get a 250mm res or a 400mm res. Is 400mm too big? or is 250 mm to small? I like the look of a big res, but I don't want something that wont fit or look too small. Opinions?

Also, Just wondering if 5/8" OD tubing would look to small in my case. Is there a significant visual difference between the two?

I had a BitsPower 250ml res in my 800D and I thought it was too big. It depends on who you buy the Res from but, I would not go bigger than 250ml. I don't think the 400 ml res will even fit, but not sure since you are going to use a 900D.

There is a visual difference between the size of tubing, but I think 5/8" is perfect sizing. It can be bent easier for closer bends and does not look too thick. I think 1/2" is too thick and big, but its all about personal preference there.
