    I have tried clear - didn't pinch, no coiling up.
    Gardiners yellow - didn't pinch, no coiling up.
    Gardiners 'All Season' - didn't pinch, no coiling up.
    Aquadapter orange - pinched, but coiled up like a spag bol.

    I want pinching and no coiling. Is it possible?

    it is right pain when the hose twists and gets tangled in van
    what i,ve done is the tail on the pole i have made it just long enough
    pole fully extended then connection fitted. find it so much easier
    got new pole this week slx 22 great but the long tail pain in the ****
    will be getting chopped tomorrow.
    how much time wasted sorting out hose tails and main hoses

    I carry 2 poles in my van. They have different colour pole hose to make it easier to see which hose belongs to which pole.

    I have these all over the van. Good for hanging spare brushes up. Also park my poles in them. The ones for the poles are attached to the bulkhead and I rest the brush end of the pole upside down, so the bristles don't get damaged.
