Re: To get a new hose or make a new hose?
With some creativity, (and you've displayed plenty in the past lol),
I'm sure you could make some display hoses yourself that would be washable, functional, and purty.
However, a nice hose is just something great to have;
they generally have great pull and an exotic flair.
So IMO, I say go for it, buy the Nammor, if you got the walletspace right now.
The hose supplies for making your own will still be cheap enough to buy next week if you wanted, plus you'd have your fancy hose for the "oo-aah" factor lol.
Haikus are easy
but sometimes they don't make sense.
