    Problem with a lot of the budget top hoses I have seen is they tend to be soft and swell quite nicely under boost...

    SFS appear to be one of the cheaper ones but the Forge stuff isn't too far behind and are excellent quality..

    The colour isn't very well represented in that pic... the blue is better than that on the actual product but yeah the SFS are a tad cheaper...

    Cheapo crapo ones can be crushed with your hand, whereas you can hardly put an indent in the forge ones, and they look beautiful.
