Tubing comes in many different colors, sizes and shapes. Each product offers its own special qualities that allows for different uses.
Stretch Round Rib is round and solid rubber. It has great stretch which allows for great segmented bodies. It comes in 3 sizes to cover everything from small midges to large saltwater patterns.
Stretch Tubing is also round but unlike the round rib it is hollow. Excellent for midges and creating segmented bodies. One cool feature of it is the fact it is hollow so you can fill it with liquid allowing you to make exotic patterns that will really set them apart. VIDEO: Tying Midges With Micro Tubing
