I don't recommend anything actually, I just use what I have at home and it works for my own sake. I also can say that any sort of knife have never worked for me... Surely dedicated tube cutter will work great, no argument here.

off course they can what do you think they use to cut the tubing there selling you. this is how they work just like mine do sorry if i seem a little over the top but to spend 50 bucks to get straight tubing is down right nutz YouTube - Cutting PVC PIPE cutter, PIPE Fitting, Plumbing tool, PVC tubing cutter

With my A.D.D. and no-patience problems this is no go. It takes split second with my Fiskars to adjust tubing!

i am not sure what you mean by adjust, cutting it to different length's well it's very easy. they do it in this video nice and slow to show you most of us just use them like any cutting tool.
jsut go adn see what they cut the tubing with yourself.

Heh, I just ran a new loop two nights ago and all I used was a utility knife I had lying about.


Pushed the tip in until it broke the inner edge of the tubing, and then I rotated the tubing with my other hand and I had my cut. They aren't perfectly precise laser-like cuts, but they really don't need to be.
