The actual hose does not have a metal connector. It has a plastic connector at the end that hooks up to the house, which gets brittle and breaks very easily. The one in the picture shows a metal connector which is why I ordered it, but it isn't the same as the one shown.

The quality of the hose is good - seems to be very decent quality rubber and sturdy. However, the listing did not indicate that the color of the item shipped might not match the item description. I received a brown hose, not a black one. A black hose was specifically why I chose this item, so I was a little disappointed.

I have two large ceramic planters on either side of my front door, and a hose bib right nearby. But I didn't want a large garden hose or hose reel in front of my house. I thought it would be unsightly.

So, I've always had to unreel my very long garden hose from the side of the house in order to water these two pots. And then reel it back. There must be an easier way, I figured.

At first I thought I'd get one of those `incredible-shrinking-garden-hoses' I've seen advertised on TV. But the customer reviews I found said they didn't work and that the quality was very poor. My local Home Depot had it for a week, the sales people told me. But it never came back. Poor quality must've been the reason why.

Then I stumbled upon this six-foot Leader Hose. It fit the job perfectly. The color I received was black. It looked very professional, like a commercial gardener would use. It's also disappears from view and is not easily seen.

It's thick enough so that it doesn't kink when I water the planter on the far side of the door. Lastly, it also screws in tight and doesn't leak. I wrapped the male ends with Teflon tape. I leave a nozzle sprayer attached.

Watering those two planters on my front steps is now a breeze. I don't get my hands, pants or legs dirty from unreeling and reeling back my longer garden hose from the side of the house. I'm very, very pleased. I also can't believe how long I've endured this situation. Like, duh.

If you need a very short garden hose, this six-foot Leader Hose may be a perfect solution for you, too. Enjoy.

The leader hose that came with my hose reel was stiff as a board. I purchased this one in hopes of getting one that was more flexible. It is. The brass hardware is a little on the cheap side and will cause you to be careful, but it works fine so far and there has been no leakage at my connections. Given the price, it's a pretty good value.

I found it very difficult to find leader hoses in decent colors at local home stores or hardware stores. They were either neon green, red or some other very obvious color, and at higher prices. This one is a great brownish black color (color of soil !), which is great for blending in to flower beds, and nice quality. Would recommend to anyone.

Products obviously change over time. At this time (March, 2016) the hose I received was black and had metal fittings at both ends with a good quality washer in the female fitting. I attached it to our spigot on one end and our hose reel on the other using Teflon tape. The metal ends fit snugly and sealed without leaking, even though our city water has very high pressure. Unrolling the full length (300') of the hose from the reel and then rewinding it all caused only a single drop of water to appear under the leader hose fitting which I consider an unequivocal success. And it is made in the U.S.A.

We'll see how it holds up, but for now: so far so good.

This is not an 'industrial' or 'heavy duty' hose, but its not advertised as being that. For the price, this is a very good hose.
At 6 feet long, it is useful for many applications, other than connecting hose reels. We use ours on a horse water trough.

It is the length I needed to replace a worn one on my hose reel.
I did have to buy a double female hose adapter since the hose I am replacing has male fittings on both ends. Amazon does have them

Short hoses are hard to find. It seems to be of good quality with metal fittings and came with washers and a plastic grip on the female end to make screwing it onto the facet easier. - -Time will tell if it holds up.
