I’m looking for an air hose for my nail guns. I have a retractable plastic hose, but it isn’t flexible enough. If I stretch it out, the force that wants to retract the hose is very high. Anyone know of a flexible light weight hose.? It doesn’t have to be retractable.

I have the retractable hose reel from HF mounted in the middle of the ceiling in my shop. Includes 50’ rubber air hose. Works great for me. Got it on sale for I believe $65 for reel and hose.

I use the poly see through stuff with my own ends. Very light and flexible.

I’ve been using this for a small flexible hose that I hook to my guns for a couple years.

I’ve used the red GoodYear version in the past but it’s gotten too expensive.

Thank you all. I’m looking only for about 15 feet to be used at a bench. I will look into the poly hose.

Senco still makes the best hose. The gold, er gray, standard

Polyurethane hose is tough to beat if you’re looking for light and flexible.
