    I would think that the excessive stretch of the wirsbo tool would break the oxygen barrier skin or coating and render it useless.

    I only use wirsbo tool for wirsbo. I use Pex tool on it too but never vise versa. Dont know if its incorrect but havent had an issue with it.

    As long as it is Type A pex you can expand it, if its B or C dont do it
