Yes, it's manageable. Just plan before cutting it, to make sure the lengths you have in mind will flex enough to make the necessary turns in your rig.
You need something fairly rigid, that won't collapse from suction. Another benefit of the thick walls is that you can handle the tubing without gloves, even with hot wort flowing. (Don't touch the disconnects without gloves though, they get plenty hot!)
