Karcher Rubber Hose

I know this question has maybe been asked before but has anybody managed to find a rubber hose for the Karcher K series, quick release, power washers? The plastic one does my nut in everytime I use it.

I found these on ebay, has anyone got or tried one already??

In what respect? Doesn't tangle as easily?

I bought my extension and replacement karcher hose from Direct Hoses they have an ebay shop and website. They are 100x better than karcher ones and use brass fitting rather than plastic. Also very cheap.

I looked at these but it doesn't say they are rubber. How do they compare, do you know?

Im not sure what material it is, but is miles better than the standard one. Its kept it flexibility throughout the winter whereas the karcher didn't and actually burst on me last week. Much better quality.

Think mine is rubber any how but need a few more meters
