Does this sound like a fair price for a set of 3 flexi brake hoses? Parasource 4x4

I've got really bad pulling to one side when I brake. The caliper definitely isn't seized and the pads look ok, so I'm thinking the hose my have collapsed and need to replace them.
The standard hoses seem to be about £10 each, so I'm considering swapping for these ones as there's not a lot in the price.

I was hoping the bearings were the problem to be honest mate, but there you go. After changing the bearings the car drives lovely, steering not so vague, no vibration and considerably less noise, and then you touch the brakes  Shocked  
Not a nice experience at all. Bloody car veers all over the place.
As you come to a stop, if you let go of the wheel, it spins to the right. It almost goes all the way to full lock by itself  Shocked  Shocked

I've given the caliper a good looking at, and all seems well (the piston pushes in and comes back out when the brake pedal is pressed), so it can only be the brake hose I think.

I found these on ebay brake hoses. But figure at £10 each it comes to £30 for all 3, for another few quid I could have a set of braided, extended ones.
