The difference between clear cast & extruded tubing

Q. What is the difference between clear cast and extruded tubing?  
A. Clear cast is molded to obtain optical clarity.  Extruded is pushed through a mandrel or die, which can cause slight marks on the tubing.  Extruded tubing is not as strong, but it is less expensive.  Extruded will not have the optical clarity and ease of machining that clear cast has.
