Cut4 fun and I have used the Tygon for years because it has been easily available to us. So We haven't used anything else. There's a big store that sells it in town.

The far Eastern stuff can be as good or the next time you order is completely different and junk. In the past, you could not depend on the quality.

The Arnold and Stens after market products are all imported Chinese but the marketers themselves are USA importers that sort out the junk suppliers in most cases.
We should share what we know... someone may learn...
That knowledge can live after us... and that "Pays It Forward".
Be all that you can be . . .

well its ordered now..... i have to say the stuff i been getting has not been lasting anywhere close to oem...... whats on the unit when you buy it new...... the grommets and air filter fuel filters are good for a season then crack or get hard and allow gas to leak.... been getting the stuff from mowers4u i think they are oregon or stens not sure ... but they are no where near oem...... i have switched to non ethanol gas so hope it helps.... here is a pic of a new grommet and filter  i will post a pic tomorrow of what 11 months did.....

I thought about buying some of those bulk primer bulbs to try out. 3 different styles.  I am out of 1 style so getting close to deciding.

Ive been using the Chinese primer bulbs and they seem to be ok, but I think I will stick with the tygon line that has the name on it.  The other fuel line that seems to hold up pretty well is the black Echo 90014 and 90015.  90014 is 3x5mm and 90015 is 3x6mm.

I ordered samples of the yellow tygon from farmertec, they could be easily crushed shut between finger and thumb on all sizes, I just threw them away, it looks like the grossly expensive Oregon stuff sitting on my shelf looking lonely but not the same stuff structurally at all
the primer bulbs I get direct from Zama, they are just fine but I did have one pop apart ( the snap in style) on a customer
seeking new in box 046, standard or arctic model
