« on: April 20, 2018, 08:15 AM »
If I get a new boom arm bundle, will it come with the new flexible sleeved hose?

As far as I know the standard boom arm set do not include hose. You have to use your existing hose, unless a vendor is selling a custom set that include the hose of course. In such case I would contact that vendor and ask if the hose is the new 2018 hose.

My boom arm comes with a short hose from the vac to the rear for connecting to your existing hose for the vac you already have

The boom arm has the same 50 mm extension hose. It is not one of the new smooth ones.

I went to LeeValley during lunch and looked at their display. The hose you talking is the non anti-static grey hose right? about 3m long

Ahh, next time I will read the description more carefully about the 50mm hose and connecting to the vac’s existng hose.  Since seeing the new flexible hose, I HATE my original hose for most tasks.  Having it up on the boom arm would help tremendously though.  I may get the new hose too.  Thanks all!
