The basis of our tube system consists of 1.8mm semi-rigid plastic tubes. These tubes are designed to be used inside our 3mm tubes or as a liner inside our copper tubes. Although many tiers do tie on these tubes directly, they are not intended for that, and may fail over time. A much better approach is to use the 1.8mm tube as a liner and let it stick out of the front of the 3mm tube so a small head can be created. For more info on this please see our videos and articles on this.
1.8mm Plastic Tubes are a great economical platform to tie on. They are available in a wide range of colours, or they can be covered with body material. Try Pearl Tinsel for a great vibrant body colour.
The tubes are semi-rigid, which makes it easy to tie on them without compressing them. If you are looking for a tube that will see a lot of stress, like fly designs with cone heads, then we suggest our Tough Tubes.
The tubes are sold in 10-packs with tube lengths of 20 cm (8").
