Review: After I put an expansion chamber and a drop forward on my gun the stock braided line was to long and really twisted up so i thought that I would buy a macro line. I found the line at Kapp and I emailed them about the pressure of my gun and what there line could hold. The guy said that a co2 tank was about 800psi and that there line could run at 1000psi and the burst pressure was 3000psi, and he said this line will fit in standard macro line fittings. The line is very easy to install, all you need is a wrench to fit the fittings and an exacto knife to get a clean cut on the end of the line. I have never had any problems with the line bursting or having leaks or falling out or anything.

Today when I put my tank on the line was leaking at the fitting. This may of been because the hose is to short because it would leak at one end and then the other. After I took my bottom line off and spun the hose around a few times the leak had almost completely stopped. It was a low hiss so I decided to play with it anyways. After the first game the leak was gone completely. This was only a minor inconvenience and won't make me change my mind about how well macro lines work because a braided hose will leak at the ends sometimes.

To fix the problem with the macroline leaking at the end of the fittings just drop some oil into your asa before you put your tank on it it will stop any leaks.
Conclusion: I recommend that if you want to put a macro line on your marker that you should pay the little extra and get the super macro line from kapp.

dude well yeah micro line is cool and all but the thing is that cO2 and micro line don't mix well if the liquid co2 gets in your gun it will weeken your micro line so make sure you got a spare line around or you are gunna be wishing you would have stayed with steel braid you need to get hpa

If you use HPA, DO NOT, repeat, DO NOT! put oil in the asa or on the nipple. Under the pressure of HPA the oil will combust and cause the tank to go BOOM and give you serious burns or death. Just FYI....
