That tubing is actually better than Masterkleer from my own experience. But it isn't Get Tygon and nothing else if you can afford it. If not than that tubing will be Ok (Not excellent or good just Ok) Thats my opinion! And yes, 7/16" ID 5/8" OD Tubing will make a way better seal than with 1/2" ID tubing and it's quite easy to fit over 1/2" ID barbs. Only place where it could be a problem is over the barbs of the D5 If you really can't get it over the barbs just soak the end of the Tubing into hot water for a few seconds which will make the tubing more flexible and will make it slip over the D5's barbs more easily.

Actually im supposed to receive about 14 foot of Tygon 7/16" ID 5/8" OD Tubing tomorrow. Along with a new reservoir, an active NB cooler, some G11 UV blue additive and a few other things
