It doesn't feel any stiffer then Tygon. White is in 3/8 size , so it will be even easier then 1/2.

As for routing, I decided l go with 45 degree and straight compression fittings for few reasons:

1) The cost is no more then barbs (Swiftech polished barb - $7 vs. Feser compression straight - $6);
2) I'm sure they will last forever, so this is one time cost;
3) Less bending of tubing: no kink, less tube, cleaner look;
4) Worm clamps look ugly;
5) Chipset/MOSFET/CPU blocks are too close for 180 degree turns anyway;
6) This is my hobby, so I want it nice looking not for a "check mark".
