This didn''t work for me
Reviewer: Andrew (1)
Very soft and kinks too easily.
I changed to 3/5 ID (5/8 OD) and very happy about the new size.

This tubing is perfect if you''re using 1/2'''' comrpession fittings. i have the perfect seal fittings from EK and there are no leaks. i use spiral wrap on my tubes to prevent kinks and even in tight turns the tube holds its shape.
A Little Too Flexible
Reviewer: Divinitus Umbra (20)
This Stuff Is Very Flexible Too Much So For My Taste, It Kinked With Little To No Effort. Even With Tubing Coils It Still Kinked But If You Are Running Some Tight Bends This Stuff Will Work Fine. But I Recommend Saving Yourself Some Cash And Going PVC Instead.

Nice tubing bends well.
Very easy to work with
Reviewer: Ridl37 (3)
This tubing does kink easily when alone but that''s obvious when you look at its thin wall ultra flexible design. I planned ahead and bought the coil spring sleeves which allow much tighter bends. The ease of slipping this tubing on and off connectors has made reconfiguring my system with koolance compression fittings a snap. I suggest putting some clear lube on the tube where the compression collar turns to keep the tube from twisting with the collar.
Still good stuff.

Its a high quality tubing for sure. It does have problems with tight bends but if you use the anti kink coils with it I didn''t have any problems with making all my tight bends. It is very flexable and easy to work with, but I''ll be trying the newer 1/2 feser next. Don''t let the reviews of Tygon turn you away. Like the person befor eme said it works with compression fittings as well.
It does have an advantage over 3/4"
Reviewer: EnergyFX (1)
As the other reviews stated, yes this hose kinks easily, BUT its saving grace is that it works with compression style 1/2" fittings. 3/4" OD Tygon is much less prone to kinking, but if you are partial to using all compression style fittings then this is what you will need to buy. You will probably need some spiral wrap for getting around tight spots.
Get the 3/4" O/D stuff
Reviewer: Masa (2)
The 5/8" OD kinks easily and doesn''t bend that well. You''re much better off with 3/4" OD tubing.
Reviewer: Phizzle (5)
The bends in the picture aren''t as good as the look. This tubing will kink at about 3 3/4in bend. This is no good for a watercooling system. You need tight short bends a lot of the time and this stuff just won''t do it on its own. I you buy it, make sure you get some coolsleeve too, your gonna need it.
