I'd likely use clamps for your first few builds until you get the hang of things. But I have haven't used clamps in at least a good 5-6 years now. 3/8" tubing + non-stubby 3/8" fittings. They are actually more secure then compressions.

non-stubby fittings? Does it matter if they're standard barbs or fat boys?
