You can get:

1/2ID 5/8OD
1/2ID 3/4OD
and so on.

The thicker the wall the less likely it is to kink, however it is stiffer and obviously thicker. You really do not need coils on 3/8ID 5/8OD or 1/2ID 3/4OD as the walls are thick enough.
Thanks Freak, guess you should see this though ^^, lowfat's description is even more clearer.

I used 7/16 tubing as well on the recomendation by Captain Vortex and it works awesome on normal swiftech barbs but put the tubing on the Pump barbs is literally a pain in the ass i totally put the tubing in boiling water for 3 times as long as i did for the swiftech barbs and it wouldnt go i hand to end up enlargening the hole with a pair of scissors which i do not think is a good idea or recomend might thin out the walls to much and cause a leak maybbee.... But dam was it hard to put it on the pump.
