    Hi guys hope al well... I'm still really struggling with finding a good pole hose thought id cracked it with the blue exceed and I do like it but keeps curling back up mainly I think because of way was packaged and sent when ordered keeps curling back the way it was..

    the black stuff was good in summer but found too hard in winter

    any advice on any new or old pole hose that is really good ? or recommend way of straightening out the exceed stuff?

    driving me mad when working any tips? thanks as always

    Here's something you could try. Take the blue hose out the pole, put a brick on one end, walk the hose up your garden so its straight, and then put a brick on the other end. Then keep boiling your kettle and pour it over the hose from one end to the other.
    This should iron out the memory of how the hose was packed.
    When storing it away, its important to have the loops as big as possible. Good luck

    mine has started to do that ,more frequently now, over a year old, if you remember to unhook it before use and straighten it all out before you start your days work, should be better. the hell we suffer . kinky pole hoses.

    I've no problems with my blue exceed, maybe as Peter says as mine is tubeless it's on the reel all the time , the only time it curls up is if I coil it and pull by the actual hose
