A BBC Gardeners' World Magazine Best Buy award winner, this is light and comfortable and the eight spray patterns are easy to change. It has no leaks, comes with a one-year warranty and costs less than a tenner.

Is the XHose 8 Speed Spray Nozzle comfortable to use?

This is so light it feels great to hold and the rubber grip on the inside of the handle is soft in the hand. The trigger is operated by the palm rather than the fingers and is smooth and light.

What is the XHose 8 Speed Spray Nozzle like to use?

This is a deceptively simple spray gun that has eight different patterns – shower, soaker, mist, angle, full, cone, flat and centre so it covers all gardening and household needs. They all have good pressure and there are no leaks in between sprays or when twisting the easy-click dial. The trigger lock is a ring on the top of the handle and needs two hands to flick into place, which is not ideal and the adjustable flow is a fiddly little switch that takes ages to wind up or down, making it fairly ineffectual. For general spraying and watering, though, this is an easy-to-use spray gun.

Is the XHose 8 Speed Spray Nozzle built to last?

This is so light and plastic it doesn’t really very durable. It would definitely benefit from being kept indoors or under cover through winter.

Is the XHose 8 Speed Spray Nozzle good value for money?

This is not the most robust sprayer we tested and it has few features, but for eight spray patterns and a comfortable grip, plus a one-year warranty, this is a great value budget sprayer.
