After a failure of a braided faucet supply line of unknown origin under the kitchen sink, I intend to replace all the braided lines in the house. HD offers Brasscraft PEX lines that can be cut to the exact size required. Does anyone have an informed, experienced opinion as to why these are acceptable or not? Should I go with new Brasscraft braided instead?

were they stainless steel braided lines, I have seen a few of those blow out.
We use the polymer braided hoses by BrassCraft.
We used to use the chrome plated bull nosed copper tubing, but they can be difficult to install in tight places. They are almost like the pex supplies.

Those pex supplies maybe a little stiff and you can't loop them like a braided supply
