    Anyone know where I can get these (if there's such a thing)? I only use backpacks and need 11mm to 8mm to attach microbore to pole hose.

    Naaaaaahhhh, maybe I didn't put my point across well. I have made my pole sort of tubless (well the hose seperates anyway), trouble is I am backpack only and I am using JG connectors and high pressure pole hose, the problem is the pole hose is too rigid in this weather so I need to use microbore, but it has to connect to pole hose so I need a JG reducer that is 11mm-8mm but I don't think there is such a thing?

    Been on the JG website there isn't a reducer that takes microbore 11mm o/d I might try this XLine pole hose as main hose as long as the o/d is 8mm then attach it to pvc pole hose.
