... and fail catastrophically. I know of 2 instances of this, one of them 
occurred to a friend with relatively new braided hoses on a 1500 Spitfire. I 
think the problem is that people see them as a fit-and-forget item, which they 
most certainly are not. Unless there is some way to inspect them, I presume 
that regular replacement is the only way to ensure safety.
I've personally never had any problem in obtaining a good brake pedal with 
(new) standard hoses,
