    Niedner is nice and light weight but the inner jacket has a tendency to twist away from the outter jacket. If properly maintained, this should be no problem. I'm pretty sure that the "XL" line has the dura-coat on the outter jacket and has proven very durable in normal situations. I'd check the prices of other compatable hose, Niedner can be a little pricey.

      New hose for a new truck!!!

      Try Ponn Conquest before you buy anything.
      It's only my opinion. I do not speak for any group or organization I belong to or associate with or people I know - especially my employer. If you like it, we can share it, you don't have to give me credit. If you don't, we are allowed to disagree too (but be ready to be challenged, you may be on to something I'm not). That's what makes America great!

        I would highly recommend that you test several brands of hose for flow.
        Use a good flow meter and test all hose at the same pressure. I have found as much as 100-gpm difference between brands of 1 3/4" hose.
        So far, Ponn Conquest has been the best that I have tested.

          It is used in the firefighter Combat Challenge and holds up extremely well. I think the original problem with seperation has been corrected.
