clearflex or tygon and why???

As for how much feet it really depends on your setup (# of blocks, # of components, placement, etc..). Just guesstimate and buy 1-2 extra feet just in case.

I prefer clearflex, 1/8" wall thickness. It's relatively inexpensive compared to tygon, and it bends and seals well. Fits all of my criteria.
