What a disappointment when I received this so called kink resistant hose only to find that it was full of kinks right out of the box. There was a day when I trusted the Craftsman name to represent quality indeed the last Craftsman hose I purchased lasted 20 years. This hose is pure Made in China junk. The kinks have already "set" in the hose so I know that I am looking at nothing but aggravation in my future.
II have been through numerous garden hoses over the past few years. My average would be 2-3 replacements over the summer. I found that nothing I got from the local home and grocery store would uphold...between the 100° weather, kinks, rose thorns, and wear and tear. I would have saved myself a lot of hastle, money and time had I just gone with Craftsman.
