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.

Digging up an old thread I know but its my thread so I hope ul forgive that. Ok so I've decided to use hard line since I can custom length it. The issue is for the life of me I can't find where to buy it. And don't suggest mcmaster cause I have been able to find it on that either unless im blind. If its there and im missing it direct link me please

Link for brass hardlines

Link to a thread in the customs section.

Lots of people use parts from the local auto-supply store. Modern brake systems are typically rated at 3000psi, but not always. If you are going to use the auto-parts store, make sure you check the pressure ratings.

Right on man you rock thanks. Yeah I had thought of checking auto parts stores myself. Is the threading the same?

There is no standard thread size for brakes, but 1/8"npt is a common size.
