Default Your recommendations Flexible Power washer hose

Power washer hose blew this past weekend. It is the one that came with it and is stiff as hell and a PITA to roll up for storing. Anybody got a suggestion for a good flexible power washer hose to replace this with? Current hose is 3/8" rated for 4500 psi and 50'. Washer is 3800 psi and 3.5 gpm. Needs quick connect fittings on each in, or no fittings. Flexibility is main thing I am looking for. Rolling up that stiff ass 50' hose after each time I wash down the boat and trailer is aggravating.
Thanks

Hope everybody had a good thanksgiving with family and got to take a little break yesterday!

I've got a big Simpson washer 4500 @ 4000 and I am convinced there is no such thing as a soft flexible hose at that volume/ pressure.
What I did have to do was buy an expensive flex coupler to go between the hose and the handle so I'm not always wrestling a bear.

Wow, that's flexible if it can be coiled that small, 12" approx. Heck my hose coils to about 40" without going nuts.

My only problem is that hose is only 50' long. I would have to have a 100'er to wash the boat/ truck or car and not have my Simpson getting wet while I'm washing the vehicles....it's bad enough dragging a hose around the last thing I'd want to be doing is constantly moving my washer too.

I am a homeowner not a contractor so don't claim to be the expert but I bought on off Amazon that is lot better than the hose that came with my washer. It still has some memory when coiling it back up but it's not an issue and works great.

Schieffer 4000psi, 3/8" x 50ft rubber with quick disconnects for about $60.

I just have a little boat! I put the. pressure washer beside the boat and have no problems getting all the way around a 24' boat with 50' of hose. Slide the handle under the trailer when moving from one side to the other and have plenty of room. 100' would be nice when doing the house, but not necessary for how I use mine. boats and vehicles is about it.

Almost rope-like, and more durable than rubber. Held up to 2 years a dealership detail shop abuse. The only reason it's gone, is because a new bay was built, with an overhead hose mount.

A double braided 4000 psi hose is going to be a little stiff but is flexible enough to roll on a normal size hose reel. Get the grey or blue non marking type.

No experience but flexzilla makes pressure hoses with quick connections.

Regular hoses are stiff but more durable. You just have to wip the hoses into a circle about 10 times then pick up the coils. Takes me about 30 seconds to pick up 50 hose and it be coiled up.

Id rather move the washer around then use a hose over 50'.
