I bought myself and my parents two 50-foot hoses each. My parents used it very little and their's split. And I used it for about a little less than a month and loved it and how light it was until today when I came home and my hose is split, looks melted, and was fine last night when I watered flowers. It's too bad that it's not good quality because I really loved how light it was. Definitely not worth buying.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
