Swirl Shower Hose Flexible Chrome & Black 11mm x 1.5m
Cheap but does the job
Hose is fairly stiff ,but only to go on bath mixer taps ,fittings on ends quite big so if you need the hose to go in a hand rail it problerly would not fit

Non standard size
The quality is great for the price and the plastic coating makes it much easier to keep clean than other coil hoses. However the ends are not a standard size or taper, so won't fit the shower head holder on the rail supplied with most electric showers. Make sure you check how it compares to your rail before buying.

Who let this reach production?
Overall it does what is says on the tin. But the tin doesn't say "fits standard shower brackets". And that's the problem. Every shower hose I've bought in the past twenty years has a near enough standard taper on the end of hose fittings, so that it fit any normal shower bracket. This one doesn't, it has some daft ridged collar that fits no bracket I've yet seen.
I'm sure this would fit a bath shower mixer set that uses a cradle to hold the shower head, and in that scenario you'd have no problems, but for any normal bracket-mounted shower head look elsewhere.

Not as described
Don't know who on earth measured the bore on this thing but I can guarantee you it isn't 16mm, it's more like about 8mm at most. Restricted the flow of water compared to the old hose, nowhere near as good.
Furthermore, it doesn't even come with washers so you'll need to keep the ones from an old hose or get some elsewhere.
Lastly! The nuts on this thing have a silly serrated ring thing on them, which means it won't fit in to the standard Mira shower head holder without flopping around loosely.
Complete waste of time. Had to buy a second one, which WAS actually 16mm.
