Metal tubes are available in a range materials - from lightweight aluminium tubes to heavy copper and tungsten, these tubes are normally supplied in predetermined lengths which are chosen depending on the size of the pattern being tied. Metal tubes are normally finished with a plastic liner to avoid damage to the line, some are supplied with the liner pre-fitted while others are not and are designed to be used in conjunction with a liner tubing. Adding your own liner tubing gives you the option to add a conhead or disc to the front of your finished fly.
Platstic tubes are usually sold in longer lengths allowing the tyer to cut them to any given length to suit different flies.
