Also, I didn't think the non-AS hose would be that big of a deal until I walked over and bumped into the washing machine after sanding.  Yikes!  Still worth it for the ease of use of the setup.

Ya that kind of gets your attention.  [smile]

I'm struggling getting this HSK 80 x 130 connected to the hose of the CTL MIDI-I which has should be the Ø 27/32 x 3,5 m-AS/CTR hose, the converters that came with the HSK 80x130 itself are too small and the rubber ring around it does not fit the MIDI hose.

Is there any connector/converter that I'm missing or should I try to get that D21,5 hose somewhere? Prefer to have a converter/connector though.

Hi,

    I just tried it with the new style 27 connector. I got it to go on the reducing ring. But it is an extremely tight fit. It is tight on the old style but even more so on the new.

    I did a quick internet search and the 495019 hose is still available. If you plan to use the sanding block much at all, then you will  appreciate  the much lighter hose.

I'd echo what Seth suggested especially if you're using it vertically or over your head. The weight of the heavier hose wants to constantly pull it down. I managed to attach my HSK 80 directly to the older style AS green hose and the operation was clunky on vertical surfaces.

The only drawback is that the 21.5 hose is non antistatic,  [sad]  so if you bump up against something that's grounded, well, you'll be subtly reminded.

I dont know why but none of my hoses are anti static and I have never gotten one shock plus I have about 50' of pvc.  I live in very high humidity location so not sure if thats why but it seems odd while others have issues.

High humidity is your friend.  [smile]
