Just received a new pump and thought Id let you know my thoughts. The new pump is the PKS Pro Flow V2 Mega Kite Pump 24. I say this pump rocks and would highly recommend. First key issue is the very flexible hose, the hose is made of some type of rubber, very flexible and easy to work with. PLUS, it uses the standard connector!!!

My older pump is the original WMFG pump. Great pump but I hate the hose it comes with, very stiff and has a none universal connection. See attached image. I see from the WMFG web site that they have a new pump version with a flexible hose. BUT they still have their none standard connection.

From inspecting the PKS Pro Flow, this is the same quality, if not the same China OEM manufacturer.

Why didn't we have this years ago? You won't regret this purchase.

I too like the improved hose. I believe it (the one on the right in your image) also comes on the 2017 and newer WFMG. Only slight downside is that this black flexible hose has developed leaks twice in 100 sessions this past year since the upgrade. Easy fix, but not so easy when I'm rigging on a hot Mexico beach.

The white hose is from the WMFG, it was never repaired. Note sure what the brown color is, never really looked at it since its been working with no issues.
