The thin stuff

Is the thin PVC found in my local hardware store or is it from an application where the general public doesn't get to buy it without special ordering?
The thin, but strong stuff, could be coretex (sp) or something like that. It is drain pipe, usually 4" diameter, white on the outside, black on the inside, bell mouthed at one end. All the fittings are available as well as solvent, usually at your local building supply house. This stuff will make a rod case capable of holding three or four rods.
I fish because the voices in my head tell me to
