The strength is satisfactory.
Because it is thick, it does not burst or harden at the time of deterioration, and discoloration and slight bulging become an updated sign.
The cheap products are light, but the surface deterioration is very fast depending on the environment.
In that respect, I think that this hose is more durable as a general purpose.
Since I have not used much days since I have started using it yet, I can not say the impression of the product clearly, but when I got a hose I got a good feeling with different softness until now. I wonder if I can comment unless I try to use it for strength or dragging for a while.
I always use it, and I am not particularly dissatisfied. I have not used anything from other companies, so I can not compare, but I think that the useful life is long. I think that the price is high accordingly. It is not enough to replace it ...
