    Hose ID and Low Pressure.

    How much does the ID of a hose matter for low pressure? I'm making a LP Tippmann, and I'm torn between using macroline or steel braided hose for a 4-5" section. I like the durability of steel braided, but the macroline has a larger ID.

    I'm assuming 1/4" macroline and, In that application, I would use said line without hesitation.

      Ok thanks. I know there are different IDs for macroline, but does the ID for steel braided hose change much? Anything comparable to macroline?

        I haven't messed with steal braided hose in over a decade, but, if I remember correctly, the ID was the same or slightly greater than comparable macroline for most steel hose. Obviously, there's some variation. For the ease and cost of macroline, I don't see a reason not to use it. Get a 25' roll and be set for life.

          standard Macro and Steel Braid use a similar internal hose size, the SS line is more durable, but for a section as short as 4" unless it's a straight connection you will have issues with bend radius on that braided line...also ease of maintenance down the line if you have no room to put a Q/D fitting on the steel.

          Macro may have potentially more issues with leaking, but they are minor and easily fixed which gets my vote over using steel braid. If you're worried about pressure rating, most quality macro is rated for working pressure of 600psi with a burst 4x that which handles most applications though i would be wary if you were using something like an SHP reg for a mag with it...otherwise it's fine.

            What are the fittings rated for? That's the big question, in my eyes.
