The whip hose is 1.8m (6') of lightweight and highly flexible hose. It reduces the weight on the user's wrist and the flexibility allows for effortless manoeuvrability of the spray gun. An added feature is that the air through the spray gun is reduced by 10° C (due to the fact the spray gun is now 1.8m further from the turbine). This can often alleviate problems with fast drying lacquers drying too quickly. Tough glass fibre reinforced polymer fittings.
