UPDATE - JULY 2010: Hose is still working great. No leaks. Now my oldest hose by far and used frequently.
I bought my hoses on May 31, 2009 and they have been installed in my shop, hooked up to an automatic oiler and carrying 120 - 150 psi ever since. The hoses are still as flexible and as reliable as the day I bought them and I have no reason to think they wont last at least another four or five years, or even longer.
Because I know what to expect, I always buy Goodyear hoses. Other brands may or may not be made of cheap vinyl, or plastic or other rigid materials that can crack in cold weather. Every Goodyear hose I've had has always been constructed of high quality rubber that is cut and abrasion resistant, while staying soft and flexible in all conditions. Additionally, I've never had a Goodyear hose fail at a fitting connection like I have seen so many other hoses do.
It has 3/8" threads which is not mentioned.
I thought it would have 1/2 inch threads but
still fine for my usage.
Come to think of it, they make the best garden hoses and hot-water hoses as well. There isn't even a close runner-up.
What's more is that their prices are comparable to the chinese junk on the shelf right next to them.
Made in the USA, and it shows. Don't take my word for it. Drag yourself down to the nearest hardware store where you can pick it up and look at it for yourself. Compare the crisp, defined, machined threads on the fittings to everything else on the shelf. Check out the ferrules, feel the rubber, bend it around a bit. Seriously.
If that's not enough to convince you, what's really going to impress you is when you tie it in to whatever application you're working with and run a medium through it. Try it with a garden hose so you can actually see what I'm talking about. The water comes out of the end like a solid piece of glass and stays that way until it hits the ground. That's perfect delivery of perfect flow. Goodyear's air hoses function with the same efficiency.
My praise, which is mostly reserved for God, is not given lightly. I almost hesitate to give it now because I don't want it to go to their heads and have them jack up the price on their products or try to get fancy and change the winning recipe which brought me to this conclusion, but darn it, they deserve a pat on the back for product excellence reminiscent of a time, not too long ago, when quality prevailed.
