Sorry about that. It's the one downside to constant improvement. There's always people who got in right before the improvement.

Hey Bobby, will it stretch over 3/4 inch hose barbs?

Well I was trying to fix something the other day and it required me to sacrifice my only two pieces of silicone tubing I use for brewing. It looks like I will be buying the new stuff now.

I ordered some silicone on a whim from a competitor that had some hard to find hops in stock and think that I received this product.

It is awesome, does not kink, can see liquid flow will be great for moving from recirculating to fermenter discharge. It is floppy whereas the old silicone that I have is sort of rigid and kinks if you look at is cross eyed. I want MORE and bobby has the best delivered price for 10 feet.

Bobby can you confirm that this stuff is "floppy"

This stuff looks amazing. I'll be buying a whole box when I can afford it. My brewery uses ~40' of 1/2" silicone including all my transfer lines, and I'll be thrilled to replace it with this higher grade when the old stuff gets too stained.

I don't know that I'd call it floppy. It's a little more rigid than the stuff I had previously but it doesn't kink easily.

This quote is why context matters. (Yes, I might still be in middle school)
