    Hi, yes it is more easy, but it is not the same - sorry. You "hose" will not contract and expand - you would just make a flexible tube. You notice the difference? That is the reason for using a law curve to control the contractions.

    we can use a curve (Studio Spline) (i.e hose profile) as guide curve and a circular profile as section to make a hose and finally shell command to specify its thickness..

    I think this will be much more easy..
