what's it like?
is it any good?

EDIT: I kind of like the looks of it and that it is Antimicrobial

EDIT2: I like this tubing too

has a nice price, I may get it,
but I'm leaning towards the Antimicrobial tubing

I haven't used either myself, though I've used several different clear tubes (durelene, masterclear, clearflex, primochill). I've used 2 diffrent types of Tygon as well.

I prefer Durelene myself for clear tubing just because its so damn cheap and doesn't have any ugly markings on it... It works pretty well too. Just a bit stiffer than Tygon. but thats off topic.

Now.. my friend just built a loop with the silver tygon and it is even softer than the clear stuff... TOO soft IMO but if you run anti-kink coils, you'll be fine. Tygon in general though is top-notch if you can deal with its softness (It can actually be helpful in some cases...) and the ugly writing on the tubing.

the writing dose not bother me to much
so it kinks bad
I think I may have sum anti-kink coils already
