Haven't had one blow apart, but have had one leak at the connection. Buy one of the pro reusable ends to repair it. They are much better. https://www.amazon.com/Flexzilla-RP900250-FLX-REUSABLE-inches/dp/B007QV1F6E?th=1With half a fender to go on my last coat of clear, my fairly new flexzilla blew apart at the fitting @ 120 psi. I nearly soiled myself. So no one here has had one fail?
