Personally I really like the Xtreme stuff.  But Cruncher has a nice selection of colors too.

I would have to say Poor Boys (http://www.poorboysbaits.com/catalog.cfm/tubes) and  Wayne's Extreme tackle are good bets. I have tried some of Terry Melvin's http://www.lunchmoneylures.com/ can be economical.

I don't think brand matters as long as you got the right color and jighead matched up. The last couple years some of the Provider colors have worked best for me.

Do you mean you want to go into a physical store and look at them? Or just a color chart online will work?

If online is also acceptable - try (in alpha order):
Case Plastics - Lots of colors in a number of size options.

Drop Shot Dennys - Widowmaker tubes with more great colors.

Economical Bass Baits - Great selection and great prices on several tube lure brands.

Independent Tackle is cool - they sell at least two brands of tubes right now. Lots of colors.

Mikes Rx Baits has 3 sizes of his own brand of salt tubes in lots of colors.

Provider Tackle - Unique tube heads and custom tube colors in 3 sizes

The Tackle Hut - Specializes in American made products including Nichols tubes

I'd recommend Hookerz Tackle as a look-to site also but they are down right now for a site redesign. I'll keep an eye on how they are doing.

Of course, anyone who knows me knows I have also been using Xtreme Bass Tackle tubes heavily since Wayne Carpenter came out with his first custom color so many years ago. Wayne has designed most of my favorite colors but I do like to try new things! Most of the companies above sell custom colors and all the companies above help GreatLakesBass.com grow so I make an effort to give them all a try! That's a pretty big selection above!

Crooked Creek Tackle - www.cc4outdoors.com

You can get them online or at South Street Tackle, Bottomline, and I believe Lunkers has them also.

Lots of colors and if you get of hold of them they will do custom for you!

I use Xtreme or Lunch Money Lures for the bulk of my tubing.  Any color works as long as it has green pumpkin!  ;-)

I'm a fan of the BPS premium tube heads with the Gami hooks, too.

I use Extreme, ISG, and Lunch Money mostly.  Lunch Money sells the "Bite Me" rattling tube jigs that I like.  They use Gamigatsu hooks.  They are very sharp right out of the bag.  Expensive but worth it.
