Default Need Advice on the Best Water Hose & Nozzle

I've tried most garden hoses and nozzles available at hardware stores and they just don't work for me. I also found the one below from Grainger thinking it would work but it kinks in 50 places as soon as water is supplied. I'm in search of both the perfect hose and nozzle. I would like a hose with no memory if it exists and a nozzle that never leaks or corrodes yet produces a powerful stream. Please help!

Fireman style nozzle. rubber coated so it won't chip gelcoat / paint when it gets dropped.

Craftsman hose ! I can't advise you on nozzle. I just replace nozzles when needed.

X2 on the firemen nozzle. Lowes sells a black hose that's made in the USA. I've had mine for 5 years now and still pleased.

the fireman nozzle is good and will not ding up everything but be sure and get the one that will shut off if turned in either direction

Flexzilla. Doesn't have a memory, and coils like silicone tubing.

These are great if you like black marks all over everything. they last for ever but at a price.
