Default Washable plastic hose?

Hey guys do any of you have the plastic washable hose that hookah-shisha.com carries? I was thinking of getting a couple. On the site it has 92% positive feedback and 8% negetive feedback but I just wanted to see if anyone on HP has one of these.

Here is a picture of it.

I saw them in a big shop in the Galilee 6 years ago and said to myself "no" but tried them anyways. They wash and dry in seconds. Nothing to corrode. Obviously not as nice looking as a really washable hose, but lets face it, consider that the pvc plastic garbage bags have a life of hundreds of thousands of years even underground. Compare that to leather. and its also cheaper. If you have one hookah well that's something else. I have anumber of only Chinese made mongrel breeds of many shapes and sizes but they all hit great, and I only use the plastic.
One thing. I find the 9 inch non-flexible rod as many traditional hoses have a total pain and obviously unflexible, so I sawed them all off around 6 inches to a point where I could add a regular size plastic mouthpiece. this resulted in a shorter hose by 6 inches in measurement, but in reach for actual use, it is longer and flexible. You can get those without the long rod mouthpiece too.

In a lot of cases more than 8% of people are idiots so Id say the hose has alot going for it with 92% positive.

A hose is a hose.

how much are they? there is another hose similar to this called the al fakher "healthy hose", which is more attractive with a fake wooden handle. i believe it's cheaper too, only $2.95 at **********.com

I have this hose and I like it. I ripped off the black flexible piece though and slid on a length of clear vinyl hose. I do have to fuss a bit getting the hose end into the hookah port on my Bambino, seems like this particular hose has kind of a fat end piece but my experience is limited. Once I get it stuck in there, it's all good.

It has better flow than the stock hose that came with my Mya, I can tell you that.

I don't love the mouth piece, but I can live with it. I'd love it more if I could fit a female tip over it, I like the feel of those. But this hose will only take my male tips and I don't like those at all.

I definitely want to try it but I want a black one. Every time I'm placing an order, if they have this hose, they don't have it in black.

The disposable hoses can't be used too many times before they go bad. Atleast the onces we tried out. Go with a Razan or Nammor washable hose that will last you years. A $20-$22 investment but they are premium quality hoses that will last and have a nice look to them.

Until I can afford a really nice hose or two, being able to purchase a washable hose here and there is a really great deal--especially as I'm the only one smoking my hookah and I only smoke a few times a week.

What do you mean by "go bad." As long as the end pieces and mouth pieces are still good, I know I can stick them on a piece of vinyl and still have a great hose.

I use this hose ... and I LOVE IT!

Can you wash it? YES! Although, I NEVER wash it .. it doesn't hold onto the flavor of what you previously smoked. But if you have your heart set on washing it, then go for it! It is completely plastic, so washing and drying is easy!!! But on the plus side, it really doesn't hold onto flavors ..

Is it durable! Yes ... I have had mine for over two years and use it the most.

Is it ugly? Yes! haha .. but I just throw a hose cover on it. Really it is not that bad looking, just not as pretty as other hoses.

How is the draw!? GREAT!

I give this hose "Two Thumbs UP!"

Does anyone have this one? I'm actually thinking about ordering one today? Complaints? Those last two comments have me paranoid about the long mouth piece. Is that what you two were referring to? The long mouth piece being a production or what?

the hose itself is black, but HJ sells the ones with a red handle (that's what it says on his site...)

Most places I've seen them (when there was a photo that showed the bag well enough) the hoses were either red, blue, or green. They are available on Ebay with black hoses and yellow or pink ends. Guess I could live with that.

I found a place called Hookah World that claims to have a tan one (they probably mean the tips), but read somewhere that that isn't a good place to order from.

Chances are, your isnt. Almost all washable hoses are aftermarket hoses that dont come with hookahs. If you have a Razan, Nammor, Grand, or one of the fully plastic ones then it is washable. But most other ones arnt, and trying to wash it will result in your hose rusting and you breathing in those rust particles.
