Thats something called spiral wrap(or something like that)my buddy is lead mechanic for Pasadena YAMAHA and suggeted we put it on.There are a couple places where the lines are close to metal,and its a good way to see if there is any contact under use.

Personally I like the looks of JDP's lines. To me that's what stainless lines should look like. You never really see them though unless you're under the car working on something. Mine are black (just happen to come that way) but I never see them. Personally I don't see the need to look for a specific color over buying a good line for a good price.....just me though.

And, if you road race or Auto-x you'll really feel the squish of a rubber line when your brake fluid starts heating up. Stainless lines will keep the brake line from expanding when you jam on the brakes when the fluid is hot. As you can imagine with rubber the hot fluid will really make it expand and thus have less pressure when you really need it.

BTW: those upgrading your lines might has well step up to DOT 4 fluid while you're at it. You've got to bleed the brakes anyway.

yes, been running stainless/teflon brake lines 20+ years ago ever since the days of buying bulk line and fittings from the local Earls dealer and making them myself.

Wrap used for isolating coil springs! Eliminates the "click" heard in the car when the springs compress.

I like the Russell Lines, I have them on my car.
I have had problems with one of the other brands that was mentioned, so i won't sell that product line anymore.

I can also get the Pedders lines too,

if you are interested let me know and i'll get you a link to the new site

side note
One thing to remember with getting the cheapest brake lines you can, it's only your brakes, lol
