Flexible Tubes + Safest Fittings?

I have a weird idea that requires soft malleable tubes and the safest fittings to allow for a lot of movement. The block will be moving back and forth about 4 inches and I need this to be reliable. I want to cool an LED inside of a production fresnel light, which allows for spot and flood adjustment by moving the light back and forward, away and closer to the front lens of the light.

Are there any tubes known for their malleability? And any fittings known for their grip on the tubes?

I don't think the flexibility of the tube will be so important, a longer loop of tube will be more flexible. Metal barb and worn-drive hose clamp is the most secure in my experience.

Mayhems is much more flexible than the other 3-4 brands of soft tube I've used. As for fittings I'm a fan of monsoon.

tygon silver and worm gear clamps, the loop can go 8 years with no maintenance except adding a few ounces of water twice a year.

Be honest, behind the facade of those things, the real priority is just screwing everyone over in the name of obscene profit & delaying any kind of backlash as long as possible. That's the real world.

What about a good block + pump combo?
