Napa flex hoses have the wire inside between layers of rubber, the cheaper ones have the wire spring loose in the hose.

If you have ever blown a hose of and tried to fish that spring back in its a easy choice of which to buy.

I agree with the wire in the hose and not the spring. I actually bought a 6' length of marine hose for our 2 cars and a 25' length of Marine Coast Guard A1 rated 1/2" fuel line. I think it was $60 total. Marine A1 fuel line has to pass a 2.5 minute burn test to be rated as A1.
