Products Used:
Steel-braided. Microline.
Marker Setup: Spyder AMG, too many upgrades to list. 68/4500 REGULATED tank.
Strengths: Light, easy to disconnect and clean fittings. Hose length FULLY adjustable.
Weaknesses: It can blow. Literally. Fitting can, too.
Review: OK, I've had macroline for about 2 years and it has always been good to me. The reason it sometimes blows is because people don't use it right. The hose CANNOT be curled into positions it does not want to go in. You can't loop it around stuff, and you can't only use like 2 inches of the hose. If your setup is such that you need to maneuver your hose around crap, don't use macroline. You need to use ADEQUATE hose length (cut it with a knife or wire cutters, but make a CLEAN cut; that is very important). If your hose length is too long, that means the hose will have to curve back more than it has to, and the weakest point will in turn become weaker. That's where it would blow. Your fittings can blow if the hose is too short because the little rings that secure the hose in will be constantly pulled, and when you gas your gun up they can pop from the fitting, and shoot out like a bullet.

I agree, this can be a dangerous product if used by a person with 48 IQ.
Conclusion: I prefer macroline over any other kind of hose. The pro's are listed above. Basically, it is a safe product if used in the right way. Anything can become dangerous if used improperly. Not only that, steel-braided can and has been known to spring leaks. Steel-braided hose is expensive, and if in the event that it blows you're out 20 bucks. Macroline, on the other hand, is relatively cheap. If it blows, though it shouldn't, it's not gonna cost you much to fix. If you're on a low budget, I would recomment this. Not only that but I think it looks a lot cleaner than steel-braided. Much cleaner look, doesn't detract attention from the parts that are actually supposed to look good.
