"It is well known that flexible tails are much easier to work with, whether fitting or working around the area when access is tight. These ones also have the benefit in having offset tap end shafts which allows marginally more spanner room when tightening i.e. the hot and cold spanner flats are not inline."
"These are very good connectors we have fitted many pairs. Unlike the ones that come with the taps these have a compression fitting which can make them easier to fit depending on the particular piping. Good buy"
"didn't know they made such flexible hoses great product & easy to use, will never use the solid copper pipes that are supplied with monoblock taps ever again very good value from screwfix, much cheaper than other diy shops can't comment upon reliability as only just installed, but don't expect problems as other reviews, confirm packet comprises both short & long leg connections into tap, which could cause difficulty in some situations"
