Smith little torch hoses suck
you can buy a similar hose, from Gentech, and it is 10 times the quality. the hose that I received from Smith/Cyberweld here was a total piece of garage. the interior hose is of a low quality, and the exterior fabric sleeve for the hose is of even lower quality. within 5 minutes of opening and installing the hose to our little torch, all of the fabric sleeve frayed apart completely, exposing 2 feet or more of the hose immediately, whereas the gentech hoses are FULLY BRAIDED. furthermore, the gentech hoses are made of a much higher quality interior hose, and come in 8 and twelve foot lengths.
