so could i not use 1/2" ID 3/4" OD tubing with 1/2" barbs? or is that tubing the thin stuff?

Sure... I used to run 1/2" on 1/2" barbs but after I ran 7/16" I never went back. Just make sure you run good clamps if you are going with 1/2" on 1/2"

Thin? what is the matter if it is thin or thick?

1/2" ID 3/4" OD = 1/4" thick wall tubing, seems pretty thick to me.

I'd say 1/2 barbs with 7/16ID tubing stretched over them, they're less bulky than compressions and just as leak-proof. Either option is good. Compressions are more expensive though.

Everyone here recommends 7/16ID with 1/2" barbs, but honestly I'm running 1/2"ID on 1/2" barbs and the fit seems very snug to me. I went to the hardware store and looked at their 7/16"ID, it seemed like a huge PITA to get over the barbs. Even with my setup (bitspower barbs), I can hardly pull the tubing off if I want to without cutting it. And you won't be running high enough pressure through your lines to care.

I run something like this, http://www.performance-pcs.com/catal...ducts_id=25625

I buy them at my local hardware store and they are $0.24 a piece, and of they don't have the brand on them which is nice.
