    I use 8mm microbore as I find a long length of 6mm minibore puts a lot of strain on the pump.

    I've had 6mm for a couple of years now no probs with pump. Prefer it as it's less weight to drag around :)

    100m of Microbore for me.

    My pump is 4 years old and still going strong. I don't think it puts too much strain on a pump.

    I found the minibore too awkward, while the minibore fits my trolley reel much better. But then everybody has their own preferences.
