There are many great features to this faucet and the extending hose is the best. It also has a great spray setting. It is lovely and I appreciate using it. The only objection I have is that when the head is "at rest" in the socket, it tends to point towards the back of the sink, prompting me to handle it more than I would like. I tried to squeeze the outer casing to see if that would influence the direction of the head, but it didn't.
