Well, with thicker tubing, the outer layer will be thicker!
It would also be stronger and not sag if you have a longer larger coil.

No, I don't plan on coating the coil with anything.

Thanks, Brett.
I understand that RF only travels through the very outer layer of a
conductor, called "skin effect", so thickness does not matter, just
surface area. BTW, are you going to silver plate or spray some kind of
clear-coat on your coil?
