    How much hose do you have and how much of it do you actually use?
    My point is that I have 2 x 100m hoses and only ever seem to use less than half of them maximum.
    Might just reduce them both to 50m and put fittings to connect the extra if ever I need it.

    Quick update, I have chopped one hose down to 50m and kept my fixed reel at 100m. Had a visit to varitech systems today and believe it or not I think I might buy one of their new poles. Omg how light and cheaper than the one in Cornwall too. Impressive to say the least. Alex I think you have some proper competition with poles now.
