    Anyone Try the X hose PRO, I used the original. Great idea, HORRIBLE build quality. It was great but it only lasted about a week before turning itself into a leaker hose + the connections were horrible. The new and improved version definitely looks ALOT better.

    Lifetime Warranty on it, that what makes it look promising in my opinion.
    Oh & the brass fittings are a nice addition

    Given the hose costs around $30 and shipping is $10 I bet they will charge you shipping to get a replacement as part of the guarantee. They do not provide the details. That is, they are not losing that much money to honor the guarantee.

    It does look better than the other since it does have good ends on it, but Ive seen too many of those hoses bust just dragging them over gravel. Even though its not collapsible, you wont find a better hose than a Flexzilla. Pretty pricey though, but you wont ever want to use anything else after you use one.

    I order two 50" foot X Hose Pro. I really liked to convenience of the regular
    XHose but like you it lasted long enough for me to get spoiled.

    Like dooyaunastan my order is still "still being processed".
    I'll be glad to give it a review when it arrives.

    The Xhose Pro is supposed to be an improvement with thicker, heavier fabric on the hose and brass fittings on both ends. However, the Xhose Pro does not seem to be available.

    I ordered the Xhose Pro directly from their website at http://www.xhose.com. I ordered it on June 15, 2013 and I have not yet received it.

    I sent an email to their customer service and instead of getting an answer they told me to call a phone number. Obviously, they do not want anything they say to be documented in writing. Otherwise, they would have responded by email.

    I called the number and a live agent did answer. I did not have to wait on hold very long. The agent told me that the Xhose Pro is back-ordered. I told him that their order status web page is not updating with any information. He said that the order status page only has two statuses, "In Process" and "Shipped". The agent never took any information from me to look up my order with. He said that my order would be shipped in about a week. That was one week ago when he told me that and I still do not have my Xhose Pro.

    I tend to think that the XHose Pro will be a good product and I would like to have it rather than get a refund. It is just horribly frustrating that the product has not yet been delivered.

    I wanted this product to use during the summer to water my gardens etc. It appears that summer will be over before I receive it.

    I will wait a bit longer but if I do not get my order soon, I am probably going to report to authorities that this company has been collecting credit card information and does not seem to have the advertised product.

    They have not charged my credit card but they should not be collecting credit card information for a product they do not have. This company has probably collected millions of consumer's credit card numbers. I am wondering what they have in plan. I sure hope my credit card information is being kept secure.
