Re: How the hell to choose a hose!!!!?
They are all good hoses. The KM's even. Don't knock non washables, they are perfect for building up flavors. I have one at home that has had nothing but DA and Kashmir cherry smoked in it, and the smoke coming through it is now ambrosial.
As for the washables, look at what style you're getting, and consider the gauge you really want to get. I have a KM leather wrapped hose, a nammour, a grand, a razan, and I recently got the new narbish. They are all good hoses, and honestly, I will just buy whatever matches the theme of my rig best now.
