Default Trollbeads sized silver tubing

Hello guys!

I came across this forum when trying to decide on what bead liner to get, and I found it very helpful. I ended up ordering the Impress.

I was wondering if someone could tell me the exact size of silver tubing I should buy if I want the core to be the same size as the Trollbeads core? I know Troll has an inner diameter of 3.8mm, but I'm having a hard time finding this size anywhere.

Also, for the Impress, is it best to use thin or heavy-wall tubing?

Any pointers in the right direction would be much appreciated!

trollbeads is the only one with that innersize. all others are wider. pandora and all knock offs. if you want to sell a larger tube size is more versatile. inner diameter should than at least be 4.4 mm. ginkco sells it indeed on etsy
