I grabbed a few packages of the Tube Fly System – Outer Tube at the local fly shop and have been playing around with them for tube flies over the last few days. Easy to cut, durable, nice melt when finishing the fly and great colors. Matched with the junction tubing creates some nice tube flies, and is very reasonably priced for what you get, a package can easily tie 4-5 dozen tube flies.
