water supply line for in door fridge water......

What do people recommend for bringing this line to the back of your fridge in the wall.
I want something i dont have to worry about.
I notice my home store sells kits in both copper tubing (flexible) for bringing water for auto ice makers etc and they sell another kit or line that is braided steel (or simular) over flexible pvc.
The package on this one claims there is nothing stronger.
I dont know. I want to do it right and not have to worry about it leaking or bursting.
Any recommendations?
Thanks!

The best choice. Copper can rattle, kink and/or break, the white nylon is just crap.

Copper is fine, I dont like the braided stuff I have seen it leak wher it is crimped to the fittings. Just have a decent size loop in th copper so you can pull out the fridge

Especially if you have to move your fridge frequently like me to retrieve lost toys for my kids. You don't have to worry about the copper tubing getting kinked.

ll.

Copper tubing is perhaps harder to install but equally reliable (no leaks) if installed correctly. If you use copper, you want to keep the length generous so you have the flexibility of bending and routing it where it needs to go. In most cases, no soldering is required as compression fittings are used.
