I just saw the commercial for the X Hose and was wondering if anyone has one. Real neat concept....if it works. Be sure to watch the video.

From some of the reviews I've read, the X Hose only works well when there's a restriction on the "business" end like a nozzle. Otherwise it doesn't extend very well.

I did some research on the net (Google it) check it out, some people are saying it's some sort of scam or shakey deal. I would love to get a 75 footer 1 50' and 1 25'. Lets us know when you get it. I would like one too. But will wait for an owner to respond.

Interesting concept. I wonder about long term reliability though.

X-HOSE instructions

I just read the instructions for the x-hose on above link and it says it is NOT usable for drinking water! So much for a great hose unless I water the garden with it! (towards the bottom under warnings!)

Watch the video again.

All of the footage where it shows it shrinking down are hugely sped up. I thought about it also for use on the boat and other stuff but after seeing that it looks like it will take a long time to go back to the small size....I passed.

From what I have noticed on the commercial is that it would probably work as advertised if it were used on a very flat surface with plenty of sunshine to make it warm and plyable.
