In response to Re: What size pipe to use?
: I'm remodeling an old house with PEX using the homerun system and manifold. A lot of articles say that you can reduce pipe size by an 1/8 inch when using this method. Therefore I have chosen to run 3/8 tube to all fixtures in my master bath/laundry area. Anyone have any experiences that would suggest bumping some of the fixtures up to 1/2 inch? Fixtures include: washer, toilet, 2 sinks, shower/no tub

The difference in price between 1/2 and 3/8 is nominal. Go with 1/2 everywhere. I always put stops at the toilets with a maniblock system.
