Default Help me fix my oil return line!

So I finally got my oil return line to stop leaking by using rtv on all of the threads, and now my return line broke due to a combination of 12k miles, being about an inch to short so it was stretched pretty tight, and the hose clamp being to tight.

Of course the foolproof setup would be that I could pull the pan and weld a -an fitting on, but I don't want to do that right now because of the time involved with pulling and reintalling the oil pan.

I can either replace with the same silicone hose or use some -10 an stainless line from siliconeintakes.com. I think I'm gonna go the stainless route, and I want to find some badass hose clamps for it as well. Anybody know where to find heavy duty hoseclamps in the 3/4 inch range?
