    best flex

    what is the best brand/s of flex that are available in the south east?

    ive been going back and forth between two brands and im not to satisfied with either.

    one brand ive been using has a very cheap inner duct and doesnt hold up very well.

    the other brand has a poor reflective jacket that doesnt resist ripping and tearing but the inner duct is made from a high quality dense vinyl .

    does anyone have any experience with this type of duct and can you recommend a good brand that is durable and well made?

    it is disappointing no one has a opinion on a better grade of flex.

    That alluminum exterior stuff ain't bad.

    They gray mylar stuff is trash.

    I've always liked the black plastic.

    Comes in big yellow bags from johnstoned.

    Don't know if Thermo-flex is available in your area, but I've always considered one of the best.

    No there is a lot of differences brand to brand, especially pressure drop.

    ATCO is good flex as long as it is installed and used correctly
