    I use the rubber hoses with the braided sheath. I love them and is worth running because of the flexibility. But beware, the braided sheath breaks down right where they come out of the torch handle from rubbing. I beef them up with fray-check or shoe-goo.
    Nice, thanks. Any high-heat resistant properties to the rubber hose as opposesd to the vinyl?

          My 250 DX I have in my shop was developing leaks with the rubber hoses that came with the machine. When I purchased a replacement hose, I bought the vinyl hose instead of rubber and that cured the problem for me.
