ClearFLEX 60
By: JFettig

Summary:
RGreat Tubing, Makes tight turns. Very similar to Tygon for half the price!
Introduction

Flex Tubing was nice enough to send us a sample of ClearFLEX 60. So far this is the best tubing I have ever used ClearFLEX is a lot better than vinyl, and with comparisons. ClearFLEX tubing is also 1/2 the price of tygon!

Testing


Pictured is the ClearFlex60 and Vinyl tubing, as you can see, the vinyl tubing has really good memory(pun intended), thus making it hard to move around. The vinyl is very stiff and curled up, unlike the ClearFlex which is very flexible and does not 'squish' up like vinyl


Coiled ClearFLEX 60


Tried to coil vinyl


Nice bend on ClearFLEX


Would you call this nice?


Which one is better?

As you can see, it can do some amazing bends compared to vinyl tubing, the vinyl can hardly bend without getting kinked. It takes bend half the size of the bends in the pics to kink the ClearFLEX.

Conclusion

I would like to thank Flex Tubing for sending us a sample of ClearFLEX 60, this is some great tubing! As you can see, vinyl just doesn't cut it, and ClearFLEX is awesome for this application. I would have to say this is the best tubing I have used.
