"Had this hose now for over 12 months. Is the first hose I have ever had that doesn't drive me to distraction with kinks stopping the flow. It can get knotted in extreme circumstances but only very occasionly. I fitted this hose with Hozelock ultimate metal fittings and it has never blown apart. Fittings can dribble slightly if pulled at an angle. But certainly the best Hose I've had combined with the excellent fittings. Tip don't mix & match with other make fittings."
"I'm not too sure why Hozelock call it Ultimate?! Paying that money and getting a hose which brakes every week- I use it for a running water(low pressure) and It keeps braking- sometimes from inside, sometimes from the outside.. Very disappointing. Replacing it with a clear pvc braided hose."
