i ordered a couple extra 1/2" barbs with the kit and they were definately bigger. dont get me wrong though, you can still fit the 7/16 tubing on 1/2 barbs its just a really tight fit. you may need to dip then end of the tubing in near boiling water before attaching to the barb.
They are 1/2inch barbs but as anything differt brands of barbs are differt sizes they dont even make 7/16 barbs lol. I got some ek and xspc barbs both are 1/2inch but both look a little differt surpising the xspc ones fit much tighter then the ek ones even tho the ek ones look like they would have a tighter fit. And 8-10 feet is a good amount of tubing to get so you have extra incase of a major screw up or you wanna change somthing.Edited by Bal3Wolf - 1/30/11 at 8:50pm
