    Gauntlet Hoses

    Okay.

    SO I attached my hose to my MOW guantlets. They seem pretty rigid. How do I make the hoses easier to move around and not so rigid??? Do they crack? Can I warp them somehow? I figure right now they are at the correct length any shorter and I will loose mobility in my arm soo any suggestiong?

    Cheers

    Pete

    Pete, alot of people use elastic loops (sewn between the sleeves) to give a little bit of flexibility:



    I hope this helps!

    What part is confusing? Please be specific. I'll reword it if necessary.

    I got it. Actually I did something similar with small caribeaners. around a plastic loop. But I think that maybe the hose might be tooo long. Thank you Batninja!

    What kind of hose do you get for an ESB set up? And how many?

    Cookie, I'm not an ESB expert, so I don't know exactly how many hoses (there should be some decent reference photos somewhere), but most of us use the standard sink hose. You can buy it by itself, or in a kit (with the spray nozzle). I remember buying two, just to be sure, but I had plenty to do three ROTJ hoses (diagram above).

    Hopefully, someone will chime in soon with the correct number and location of the ESB hoses.
