Default $3.81 for 60ft copper

First google reseult yeilded this

$17.05 shipping for a total of $20.86. Still, a hell of a deal.

Never used Underbid. Are they a trustworthy seller?

I'm about to bite on this. Does anyone know the difference between refridgeration tubing and type K tubing? Type K tubing @ coppertubingsales.com is $138 + shipping for the same coil.

I don't think I'd trust them - a 0/10 rating at reseller ratings, with only 2 votes (so they may be either new, or unpopular)
http://www.resellerratings.com/store/Underbid

But if you're willing to risk a measly $20 it may be worth a shot even knowing you're likely to get screwed in the deal. I'd probably use paypal, and not keep any extra money sitting in my account, so in theory there's nothing worse that could happen than losing your initial payment.

Are you sure that they're not listing it as the price per foot?
