Any good places to buy leaf loader hose affordably?

Looking for any good suggestions. Hoses from Trac vac, Billy goat, Little Wonder, etc. average $15-$25 a foot plus shipping??

I just spoke with Bobby at Catawba Rubber. 8" suction hose was $10.46/ft. for 25 ft or more and $11.69/ft for 25 ft or less. Thanks for the tip.

I bought a billy goat 16 horas with 10 inch hose back in 1998. The hose that came with the unit lasted about a month. I went catawba rubber , they had all kinds of different hoses some of them would not be usable for a vacuum. The one that I bought has yellow spirals on the outside and looks like the same thing that Billy Goat uses today. Back then billy goat wanted $375 for a hose and I bought 25 foot for less money. The first half of the hose lasted me twelve years. The second half is still in great shape.
