Fuel Line replacement brand

I was using Tygon 4040 and I had little issues. I ran out and I am thinking about using the clear Tygon LP1200. I know to stay away from the Chinese fake tygon.
Has anyone tried the LP1200?

    I have had to replace the lp1200 line due the liner colasping causing fuel starvation problems. Same problems of deterioration as the 4040 line. I got to where whenever I can I am install Echo lines (nitrile rubber) but sometime you can get the size you or need them to more limber than the rubber line.
     
    Now in my opinion the 4040 does a good job considering all the additives thrown at it by the fuel companies.
     
    One fuel line to avoid as it does not perform as advertise is the Stens Tru Blue line. It fail a ling term storage here here of just one month in my fuel mixture with ethanol. It claims 100% resistance and no hardening or shrinkage which did both.

    Thanks for the reply. Well the LP1200 is coming in this week. I will see how it performs. On my echos I use the black Nitrite rubber for all 3 lines. I really do not care to see the clear lines. They do hold up well.
    The Stens True Blue was a disaster.
    I suggest to my customers that are home owners to use Tru Fuel if they seldom use the chainsaw or trimmer.
