    Ordered several variant packs of a particular colour of this outer and liner tubing from Mikko Blomqvist at Nordic Angler and it arrived by post promptly. It was as described and exactly what I wanted for tying certain deadly wee Dee micro-tubes. I'm happy to recommend this supplier.

    Sent an order to him today and it's a very slick operation, with the items sent within two hours of me giving them my order and his postage fee was less than many companies who operate on home soil also quality looks very good and lots of new materials that i had never seen before over here.
    I can see this lad doing really well in the u.k and good luck to him.

    Default Tubing

    Certain tubing commonly found here has a bad reputation for cracking in very cold conditions. Could you please state categorically whether this material survives such weather? Thanks.

    Hi

    Interesting question, thank you for that. Normal "operating temperatures" for these kind of plastics are between (approx) -25 Celcius -> 80 Celcius depending on the plastic mixture.

    Also I wanted to test this myself and I put some of these tubings (3 mm outer tubing and 1.8mm liner) to -18C freezer for couple of hours. After treating those tubes in -18C "weather" I tried to bend and break the tubes but no luck. Of course tubing is a bit stiffer in -20C than in normal +10 -> 20C temperatures but it did not break.

    When fishing in zero celcius -> 20 C temperatures I would say that there will not be any cracking or breaking because of the temperature.

    Normally tubes not break due to temperature but due mechanical damage .
    If we have 3 brass tube with conehead during cast on 1,8mm pipe acts very big power bending it
    Even if you will bend steel wire after several bends it will break. The same is with pipe.
    To prevent it I put totally plastic tube inside metal one and melt only two ends.
    If I like using conehead I add lining and coneheads after tying fly only on metal tube.
    Even lining break is easy to replace it on new one.
    In Scandinavia they tie even big temple dog flies only on plastic tube with small coneheads also to prevent problem with breaking of tubes.
    Hope that it help little bit.

    Addition to this.

    I put some tubing back to freezer and I forgot them there. They were in the freezer at least a week before I digged them out

    Tubes did not break when bending them. So this is temperature issue is tested and solved for good

    Yes IME totally correct Klops even the best tubes can break with the flexing against the cone edges or the metal tube edges. I wonder if superglue used for glueing cones also has an effect on the plastic tube.
