Default Pex Tubing

Anyone have experiences with Pex tubing. Redid the guest bathroom in it and it was a freakin bear.. the taps all spin loosely but nothing leaks as yet. The biggest problem was crimping that collar tight enough to seal it to the brass nipples (not those dude though that'd be a sight)

Here's what I bought. Bloody useless just about gave me a hernia... however I think I can fit two 1" galv pipes to the ends to extend the leverage.

Whoa! That looks like some kind of medieval torture device. I bought a crimper similar to this. It does not use the dies. It crimps the little wart on the clamp ring.
