    Default Flexible Hoses

    Anyone try (bought) those new flexible hoses that they are advertising... well everywhere. They SOUND good but again wondering if anyone has any experience with them.........

    Aren't virtually all hoses flexible? Otherwise they would likely be called "pipes".

    Perhaps you could be more specific ....

    I don't have one, but check out the customer reviews on Amazon. The cumulative average is 2 stars out of 5 possible stars.

    Update:
    Arrrgggh! Now I'm plagued with banner ads pushing the "Flex-Able Hose (as advertised on TV)" Only $19.95! But wait, "it comes with a free Bonus!" Now I get a nozzle as well!

    Also that explains why SNL initially described it as a "flexible" hose.

    for a hose to expand and contract that much, the "rubber" liner must have a VERY high elasticity index, which is only achieved by also having a VERY LOW abrasion resistance. I seriously doubt the cover is strong enough to protect it from the abrasions, and also from UV,, I dont think I will try one,, (But if I lived in an apartment, I may get one to wash the car,,)

    I just got one for my birthday but I haven't tried it yet. After reading the reviews I don't want to bother even trying it. Those are some terrible reviews. It sounds like junk. I like the heavy duty black hoses that look rated for gasoline. They are expensive but are worth it. I have been through a bunch of cheap garden hoses. The heavy duty ones have lasted a good while now come to think of it. I use them when power washing etc.

    I think this is the type I like. Good solid connections.
