I use this tubing throughout my system, and it works well. It is translucent, but as it is used more, it does seem to get a little less so. I clean the hoses meticulously, so it's not that they are dirty. I clean with oxyclean, use a brush to mechanically clean, and sanitize with star-san. Despite the slight change in translucency, I can still easily see changes in clarity, as well as if bits of grain are circulating. I would definitely recommend spending a bit extra for this tubing.
