Hello all, I live outside the States and over here, FBR hardly exists.
I would like to know whether any of you have experience with this FBR:

Caulksav FBR

If so, kindly give feedback on its quality, fit inside 1/2'' PETG, usability and so on.
I would greatly appreciate it too if any of you have cheaper alternatives or know of any sites/members
where/whom i can get FBR from. (Shipping for 100'' is 22USD, so total cost for it would be about 46.5USD)

Thanks guys.

Your best bet is to just buy it and try it. There's too many people who will bullshit you to get a straight answer about this.

That's the kind of FBR that I use for mine. It's kinda iffy. It varies in density a bit wildly. My first batch of stefans turned out quite nicely, but the second batch wasn't quite as good. I like it because it's a pretty good price at Menards. I find that it fits 17/32" brass tubing and 1/2" CPVC nicely. Gotta be careful not to let the hot glue tip exceed the diameter of the FBR.

Hope I was helpful.

Foam varies in size in the packages, not the companies. There's no way you can tell who a foam will fit before you buy it, unless it's from a seller in the NIC, selling foam he already had opened.

My best advice is to get some OMG PETG and some 17/32 brass, as well. It's bound to fit one of those barrel types.

Hope I helped. Good luck.

If at first you don't succeed, add more epoxy.
