    Using XL4 to do a little Rainbow Arches testing tonight (and a little 7 node Ray Wu strobe action - finally solved my frustration with Ray Wu strobe nodes - bundle 'em in 7 and they are pretty bright).[/size]See video here...https://goo.gl/photos/Bm6psbJxCvqtVzJg9

    Sorry - fixed the font on original post. It's HDPE pipe that we get from McMaster-Carr in the U.S. I took the Johnson Family Christmas light arch and modified it to create embedded arches (Johnson had the original idea to put strip inside tube for arches). The lighting is just ws2812b strip from Ray Wu.

    I tried to get this before I looked at the tube. They basically said they weren't interested in dealing with Australia. Then I tried to source the same thing from China but came up short again.

    Talk2coxie pretty much had the same thing a few years back as well.

    If you have any luck I'd still be interested.

    If your going to buy bulk you may get a better price from the mfg. Hudson plastics in Ohio. You would arrange your own shipping from there. We have found shipping to be spendy with 100ft or 200ft because of the size. But maybe you can work it out.
