Seems to flow fine.

The hose barb measure .33" ID compared to .39" ID of my 1/2" SS hose barbs I sell.

I was thinking about those connectors last night to put on another build project. Not to highjack your thread but your gonna like that whirlpool device. Lonnie may be right about just recirculating cold wort over and over again. But what I've found on my brutus is that instead of 20 minutes to cool, it takes 30 and is dependent on how much Ice you have in HLT before it melts by passing through the heat exchanger. If you use an immersion chiller, I guess that wont apply. I may have missed it but are you going to start selling those connectors?

OK, so lets say you can't buy these in stainless (though you probably could if you looked, though I haven't) - you must be unwaveringly committed to the look to choose grinding over an oversized barb.
Or am I missing something.
See pics.
As you can see, the inside diameter of the 5/8" barb is about the inside diameter of the tubing itself. You can see a comparison with a regular 1/2" barb. Don't take the assembly literally, you have choices about what elbow you use and sex of the camlock.

You could use the female cams and couple them with a 1/2" to 3/8" hex nipple reducer and grind that.
