I got one of these last go around and I do not regret it in the least.
Big plus is the valve that lets you shut off the water when you swap nozzles or connect the hose to a power washer without having to walk back to the valve on the house.
Link to last time, there were a lot of questions then.
Is the valve shutoff made of plastic or metal?
Metal. I got two of these. I had gotten their (Rachio) organic fertilizer kit sold here on woot and it came with a 75ft hose. These things are very heavy duty. Valve handle, the ends, all metal.
