  5. From Jack Gartsides web site: About Corsair tubing: Corsair tubing can be found in many fly shops but to order direct, simply email [email protected] for current prices and availability. If you’ve not used Corsair tubing before, the most important thing to notice is the thread line running along each side of the tubing. This thread line controls the density, flexibility, and the degree to which the material can be stretched and tapered, as well as shaped (e.g. flattened or made oval). In addition, these thread lines may also serve to suggest the lateral lines of the natural bait fish. To create and maintain the best shapes and tapers, these thread lines MUST be tied down at BOTH ends of the tubing when forming the head. Isnt it also called EZ Body? Do a search on GOOGLE! http://www.e-zbody.com/
