Yep, bubble flares and double flares are different animals and use their own fittings. Threads on the nuts might be 10mm in both cases and the line 3/16 or 4.5mm ... but that's the end of it.
I too have made a few serviceable non leaking bubble flares with a double flare tool by not completing the second step.
I have the old fashioned flaring set ..... but I'm gonna say now ..... the best cheapest flaring tool set I've used is the Cal Van in line tools. Those self align, it's almost work to screw it up.
