LOL I never knew 8' colored existed until this year when i found the Red :)
But for size in general, 4' is my favorite as well...
A 5' T17 would be awesome 8-) no doubt something that should be on a favorites list

hmmm, lets see.

-Airam L20W-1XC Luonnonvalo, I dont think that I ever find another one of this kind of lamp as these are so rare but at least I have one working.
-Osram L18W/19 Tageslicht 5000 de Luxe(too bad that modern 5000 lamps dont have as nice shade of white as theese DeLuxe halophosphate-lamps did. there is something special in these.
-Philips TL 40W/55 DELUXE, another gorgeous color.
-Narva LT 18W/018 blue, nice color "drug lamp" as its called in Finland sometimes. some puplic toilets have blue fluorescent lamps to prevent drug users to find a blood vessel, so thats how the lamp got its name.
-Philips TLU 20W/25, such a cute little U-bent.

I like Your classic F40T12 stuff, but also enjoy those lamps for weird applications. :)

For me, halophosphate and triphosphor daylight tubes are among my favorites due to their beautiful colors and flash patterns seen on cell phone cameras.

I don’t really collect fluorescent stuff nowadays, but if I had a favorite it would be those Duro-Test Power-Twists.

Although this thread only states ‘fluorescent tubes’, I don’t think I’ve ever had a favourite linear tube itself?, fluorescent wise, I’d have to pick the CFLs.
To be able to miniaturise the tried and tested fluorescent tube to a self ballasted retrofit version for the every day household use was a huge step forward for energy conservation, thanks to some clever forward thinking by Louis Vrenken!  8)

Beside of VHO tubes I also like all triphosphor T12 and the De Luxe types. When it comes to day light coloured tubes then it should be at least 950 or 965 colour. 

And of course my two bended TLD 36W/830 with clear ends for my Lazzurro S1 fixture
