i understand your safety concern, though i have never seen or heard of a macro line itself blowing. some fittings, and some lp lines but never hp macro line.

It has happened to me before. I had a GA tank go haywire; it started putting out over 1500 psi without me realizing it. It blew 2 different pieces at the middle. One old and one brand new before it blew off a fitting making me realize that it wasn't just bad plastic.

I never thought it was dangerous, nothing more than a loud pop and the sound of my tank emptying.

I had always used macoline until the locking piece of the fitting blew out like a projectel across the living room and left a sizeable mark in the kitchen cubbard. I had a discussion with a tech and he said it happened to him a few times. It also caused my brand new Crossfire tank to blow burst disks for some reason and I had to send it in for a damn rebuild.

It's the opposite. Your reg started to creep, causing failed fittings and blown burst discs. Not the other way around.

Which one do you think will get you better flow?

919-4 PtFE hose at
I.D. 0.197 inch
O.D. 0.315 inch


or

ASP's Macroline that is "rated" for 1000psi at a 3:1 safety factor, which should be a 4:1, putting the pressure at around 725psi.
.150" ID
.250" OD


but when the SS braid has almost 0.050" more on the ID of the macroline, what wil get you better flow?

ASP's maro line and fittings are the best you can get. I been using it for well over a year and never had a issue with it. I run all my mags at 1500PSI unless I'm using one of my E-Mags.
