Porter Cable Air Hose

okay im trying to find a new air hose...partly because the ones i have now leak and are that crap vinyl material...and partly because i want to have a dedicated hose for paint.....

http://www.grizzly.com/products/G8114

is that a good brand and kind? its rubber so im assuming it wont be the cheapo stuff that coils and binds and what not.....(the only thing i can find in any store around here)

would you get a 50ft or 25ft....? i figured 50ft for the range but i read and hear anything over 25ft the pressure drops so much there wont be enough air pressure to the gun or something??? i power my DA and stuff with 50ft hose right now but i just dont wanna waste any more money so i wanna get it right this time...

i have never painted before but i use a 100ft hose with my air tools and I don't notice a signifigant pressure drop. The hose fills with air and if it dosn't leak the air dosn't go anywhere until you use the tool.

I got a 100' length of Goodyear at HF for like $15, I put a air filter/ water seperator on the end and it is my dedicated paint hose, and only gets hooked up into my painting regulator which is the $40 HF blue regulator
