Re: HOSE PROBLEMS
Just one note about Nammors (and possibly Razens as well) - they can be as stiff as the DIY hoses. I have 2 Nammors, one behavEs perfectly - nice and flexible. BUT... 1 has kinks in it STILL (after months of hard use) and nothing I have tried can seemlying remove them 100% permanently.
The hose SamBooka bought looks good, but I don't have one myself.
And a tip for washable - if it has a plastic smell, run warm Lemon juice thru it. Followed by warm baking soda & water. That should kill off any of the plastic smell in DIY hoses. Nammors (and other washables) normally only need the Lemon Juice and then smoke it. It can take 2-3 smokes, but the smell dies.
