I got my Jango hoses at OSH. They had them by the foot, and I got exactly how much I needed --no waste. The hoses started off clear, so I dyed them blue with navy-colored Rit dye. I think they are more or less the same as the Boba hoses (before they were dyed, of course), and were very flexible. I believe they were of the 1/4" inner-diameter variety.
Well, Jango's got five hoses, and depending on how tall you are you might need them to be 8 inches apiece, or 12 inches. Measure yourself to see how much you need, and order accordingly. You might want to get a little more than you need just to be safe. I believe the material it was made out of was vinyl.
There are clear hose that are alot more flexible than the braided one, I only used one braided hose for the right side on the top. Frankly I cannot see putting 3 of those stiff hoses on one side, I tired and when i moved my arm the gauntlet just turned on my wrist.
IT is padded inside to, but it was so stiff that after last halloween I ripped it right off there becuase I was feed up with it looking like crap and sticking out way to far all night.
Jedi Bob I will help you with the hose problem.I know you found the flexible white ones at Home Depot. Their is indeed a section where they sell ''kithen sinks''suplies and they indeed do have just the braided ''clear and smooth flexible'' hose wich you are looking for. It comes in a clear package for about $7.00 bucks its somewhere between 3ft long and the kit comes without a black nozzle''just the hose itself''. Its more like a repair kit.Let me know how you make out with your search for these hoses. I can get them for you by next weekened just LMK.
Didn't someone mention the sink hose adapter for kitchen sinks have 3/8" braided hose and is "more flexible"?? I seem to remember something as such in the past. I have the standard 3/8" braid on an ESB and since it's only one don't have a problem.
