Goodyear Pliovic hose vs. Goodyear Rubber hose

Setting this thing up and went to HF. They have GY rubber hose(black) 3/8x50' for 19.99 (pretty sure it is all rubber as comparied to hf's cheap poly/rubber hose). They also have the GY Pliovic (orange) 3/8x50' @$24.99. I comparied the two and the Pliovic was more flexible and has a higher working rate @300, burst @ 1200.

Question:
Do you recommend the Pliovic or would you go with the gy black rubber.

I would only spend the extra money on the pliovic if you use it hard. For a hobbyist the cheap hose lasts a long time.

Either will work just fine but if they offer you that crappy stiff HF hose for free just say thanks but NO thanks! Then buy the Goodyear hose. The Pliovac, as you have noticed is more flexible (as if more flex is needed in the regular Goodyear hose, it is not) and will withstand higher pressure but the regular hose will stand far more than you will probably use anyway. In hot weather outside in the sun the regular hose seems to get a bit softer however I have never had a problem with it bursting even though I am sure the pressure rating falls some with the temperature change. Either is good, your choice.

Air hose.

I bought a Goodyear black rubber hose. Its only drawback so far is it leaves black marks on primer.

HUH?

You dig up a 4 year old thread and post that?

Are you sure you posted in the right thread?
