    Just about to order some new hose and would be grateful for peoples experiances of 6mm hose. I've been using 8mm since I started and have got on fine with it but 100metres does weigh a bit!!

    I'm assuming 6mm is a bit lighter but does that come at a price i.e not so kink resistant or hard wearing.

    Pure Freedom don't seem to list 6mm but I'm assuming they do it, whilst Cleaning Spot are out of stock.

    Opinions gratefully received.

    i have both 100m 8mm and 60m 6mm hose, i find also find that the 8mm is heavy but i find the 6mm dosent kink as much as the 8mm! that might just be me.

    would reccomend both sizes as the botht have ups and down on them!

    I just use 6mm. Find it fine. Haven't used 8mm so can't compare.

    You've convinced me 6mm it is then. Always got my worn out 8mm to fall back on!!

    They do indeed. But at my age anything that makes the job even a tiny bit easier is worth a punt!!!
