I need to replace the tubing that connects the main bladder to the struts on several of my kites. Does anyone offer "UV resistant" tubing, or is this stuff fine?

Don't have a problem spending the money for the good stuff, so what is the best tubing out there you can buy that will last the longest?

I ended up going with this stuff. It specifically called out UV resistant in the description, and comes in a few colors.

Good to know, thanks Pete! Some of mine are cracking now. That says it's a good electrical insulator too, so in case you fly into power lines...
