This is a very high quality, industrial grade hose. I wanted a 3/4" hose for my shop for cleaning equipment and for flushing cooling systems on the boats. My previous hose was a vinyl composition material, which got too stiff to work with when cold water ran through it or when the outside temperature was cold. This hose has a much more consistent flex to it.
It would have been even nicer if the fittings on the ends were machine-crimped like the hoses you buy in stores. However, I don't expect to ever need to replace this hose.
