nammor or razan have a history of breaking and 4/5 have done it so far.
go with a grand caravan, built well, washable and longer than nammor's.

The issue with the Nammors/Razans is the glue coming loose when heated and that's easily fixable.

I don't see how the glue is a big problem. Sure they should of used better stuff but just glue it back with some epoxy. Done! perfect never to break again hose for $20 that will wash forever.

The cobra hoses are just basic hoses. They look good but that's frankly about it. Often they are very cheaply made.

I suggest a razan. I have both nammor and razan. Both of my nammors have fallen apart in some way and both of my razans have never had any problems of any kind.

I find that the grand hose has a tighter draw than a nammor, also i never had a problem with mine breaking apart.

i have 3 nammors and with in almost a year of using 2 of them and about 5 months of another i have only had one of the tip grommets come out on one of them and then on another when it was about 10 months old the handle came apart but i can hot glue it back when i get my glue gun. so realistically each of my older hoses has at least 200 hours of use on it probably more and the newer one has at least 100 so its not like they were new when the fell apart.

i would get a nammor and just make sure you have a glue gun and be done with it, it might come apart or have small issues but if you dont just throw it after you see it starting to break you can fit it pretty easily.

that all being said i am going to try and make my own hoses in a few months, scoping out tubing for now so we will see how that works

I got a nammor from Social Smoke in around Sept of last year and it still hasn't failed me nor has it been broken or loose like everyone else says it does. I recently bought a razan from HJ just to try something new but hopefully it won't break on me.
Go for the nammor if you're a risktaker.

I agree. I've owned nammor/razans before and nothing has compared to my past experiences with KM hoses (ult, deluxe, etc.) SUre they aren't washable, but thats the point of owning multiple hoses over time, agree'd?

I was interested in a cobra as well. I wanted to do some research on them first. I don't think you can wash those...not sure? If so, then I know that's not for me. I want a washable hose.

In regards to the Nammor, I have one. The damn thing fell apart on me within the 5th use. And I didn't even use it often. I used it once every month...twice at most. They are amazing hoses. I love the pull, the look, you can wash them..they are great in that aspect. I just don't like how a $20 hose can fall apart so fast.

Like I said I'm in the market for getting a new hose as well. So this thread is helping me out too!
