The difference between a double dip and a tripple dipped tube

Some guys are asking me what the main difference is between the tubes:

Wicked Tubes(double dip) are from Mizmo. This tube is fatter than most other brands and heavily salted. The hole in the tube is a good size and can handle any tube head or hook.

The new El Gordo Tubes are a true tripple dipped tube. It is amazing how you can actually feel the weight difference when you hold them. Being tripple dipped they have super thick walls and can accomodate a 5/0 hook. They also are salted. The main difference is obviously a thicker diameter. The cavity inside a tripple dipped tube is a little smaller than the double dipped tube. Here you might consider a smaller diameter tube head or a Texas rig with a big wide gap or EWG.

I'm already sold out of three colors. So give me a pm or ring if you want me to reserve them for you.

I am some what confused...[easily done] you mold these tubes, or not?? You stated the "Wicked Tubes[double dip] tubes are from Mizmo". I am assuming that you repackage them then...or am I wrong.
Let me tell you guys....I got some of these "Wicked Tubes' from Craig this past summer, and they work great. Nice fat bodies give a nice baitfish profile.
I can't wait to see and fish the El Gordos.....I am putting an order together for the elf, Craig. Hopefully, she'll call or e-mail you in time....Ho, ho, ho:D
