    Well that doesn't describe Reynolds, Columbus, Dedacciai, or Kasai so you won't have to adjust your preferences.

    Why should tubes be any different?

    Given the choice between two comparable products, I'd prefer to buy the one that doesn't have to be shipped halfway across the planet.

    Given the choice I would just choose the best product for the job. Origin and to a lessor extent price does not matter to me. I just want the best product. Having said that I live in a country that seems to not want to make anything at all and all the materials I use come from OS as none of it is made here.

    They were not able to purchase the tubing mill. Deal fell apart.
