While I have not used that specific brand. I have used fluorescent tube sleeves. Both the soft ones like GAM geltubes and the hard plastic type. They allow for easy gelling of tubes. Heat buildup affects fluorescent tube color output. These tubes are great for effects lighting and club lighting. The Gam tubes make colorcorrecting tubes easy when the fixture is in the frame.

I used to use them on CFL's with an architectural photographer I used to work with.

Check em out you might like them.
