I've never had a problem with the macro and fittings that I use. Purchased something like a dozen 90 and dozen straight fittings, and about 6 feet of line from PPS a few years ago. I'm just getting down to the last foot of line.
I think a large part of the problem is that macro line is fairly easy to manufacture so lots of plastics producers can churn the stuff out, but I doubt they all do it to a higher standard, so some weak line makes it out to market which leads to the failures that we see. Anyway thats my hunch, so I'll just stick to ordering a spool from PPS.
