We are having trouble finding the hose for the corn stalks. The SKU doesn't seem to exist at Home Depot and we want to make sure it is the same strength as the competition materials. Is it a general 100' foot 5/8" garden hose or is it just tubing? (The SKU provided was 635-491)

It is green garden hose.  If you have deep pockets, it would look great in the engineering notebook to buy and build 3 or more different kinds of garden hose and characterize them in ways useful to game goal.   Or if you can do non-destructive tests (don't cut it up and drill a hole in it, just measure bending strength, kinking strength,etc), you could even return the roll of hose after testing it.

I seem to remember reading that it is a medium duty garden hose

Thanks. I found the updated information in the BOM, but they didn't have the medium duty hose for the brand they used any more. We just wanted to make sure we had the correct materials.

It's simply 5/8" medium duty 100 ' garden hose, any brand. Green color looks best.
