Where can you find this stuff, and what is it used for? What's the best size to get?

This stuff works good, but is hard to find. Theres a few ways to get it. You can order a HUGE box of it with 1000+ feet( i beleive ) Or you can order it from Iron Rhino and Cx

I got mine from VisiPak.

The 1/2" nominal is .548" ID, .572" OD.

You can get some here, too, but the mininum order is 48', I think. Plus, it doesn't have the diameters that IronRhino's does.

Cxwq, what is the minimum order from VisiPak? That tubing sounds perfect for my darts. I wonder how much they will pester me if I try the free sample.

I just need the kind of PETG where you can blow the dart down the barrel, and it's still air tight so it wont drop out of your gun. That's the kind of PETG I have on my Max Shot. What OD and ID is that kind supposed to be? Anyone know?

V1Ru5_004-Kinda hard to know unless you can measure the darts and ID of tubing for us.

Buy it from Iron Rhino, that's the same stuff he has. VisiPak has a ~1200' minimum and the sample is only about 6".

If you want a lot (> 100'), but not ~1200', perhaps I could ship you some.

I heard that mcmaster stuff has a tighter fit than what CX has.

I just ordered 12' off of mcmaster. Its not expensive and is sold in 6' instead of 100' :) Lets hope is decent product, tho I won't terribly miss an hour's pay if it is crap (I get paid crumbs working at college).
