    Exclamation Hose Help???

    Question. Does anyone have any experiences with Nylon fire hose. Outer and inner jacket being nylon and the interior is a polyurethane extruded onto the inner liner. It seemed to be alot lighter and seemed to pack alot better than polyester. Just wanted to know if anyone had experience on the durability side and things such as kink resistance. I did a search on the subject and didn't find anything. Didn't know if there were any hose experts that could help out. Thanks.

    Is it Niedner hose? If so that stuff is good. Durabilty wise it should be okay. Kink resistance I can't help you with, but Kidde has kink resistant hose.
