I use both.
Tubes are more convenient and faster to make. You can set smoke down and it will keep going.

Rollies need constant attention to keep burning.
Cost wise, it just depends on which brand of tubes or papers and filters you buy. Tubes I buy are $2.50-3.00 a box of 200.
Filters I buy run about a penny a piece.
70mm papers run me half a cent to a penny apiece. 78mm 1-2 cents a piece.
You can usually get shorter smoke time with a rollie.
I use a Double Dutch tip for most filterless rolliers. Less waste of tobacco, no loose tobacco in mouth. I reuse them.
You can roll 5-7mm smokes with a rollie versus 8mm with tubes.

Cost wise, most who roll don't worry about the extra penny to make. Face it, compared to the savings of not buying OTC smokes, why quivel.
Flavor on a good shag is best with a filterless rollie.
Rolling Paper Depot is a good reliable source. With NEWRPD typed into coupons gives you 10% OFF. Shipping for normal USPS is &6.95 flat rate.
I order bulk Ramback and Windsail tubes from Bec's accessories for $2-2.25 a box. Since they have flat rate shipping I also Order Gizeh and Smoking brand papers when I do.

Rollies are not for mass production or casual smoking.
