Default Hoses

As I upgrade my brewing process, I'm realizing its time to start getting some good hoses. What are people using? I've been searching the forum, but not finding an explicit answer. My immediate need is going to be from the BK to a CFC, then beyond the CFC to ferment vessel. I see reference to Silicone hoses, but I imagine there are a lot of different kinds on the market...

My feeling is that hoses are wear items. I use them a few times then toss them.

Austin Homebrew sells Silicone and Thermoplastic hoses. So I guess those are the ones I'm looking for. Rated for high temp.. Siphon and Racking hoses are a lot cheaper and I tend to replace those once they get stained. Kinda move them through the brewery progressively, ending life as a run off tube. How long can people use Silicone and Thermoplastic without replacing? All I want them for right now is to xfer hot wort to a chiller, and from the chiller to a carboy.
