macroline and pressure

I tried searching but could not find anything so here it is. I am getting a new tank and reg that can go to 920 and I mainly am doing this for my minimag but also have heard this output will work wonders for the r/t on my a5 but I have macroline on it. Should I replace the macro or will it be ok?

I think macro is ok under 500 psi... I don't have a source on that though

People run LP macro for HP all the time; if you blow one, you never will again.

IIRC macro is almost always under ~600 psi working pressure.

If you want HP and don't mind black there is some HP rated here (most is not...)

There's higher pressure Macro out there, like Air Soldier's.
The common super-flexible stuff is not rated the the pressures it's used at.

I looked at the specs of the black hose from macrolineguy's website and it matches the hp specs posted earlier.

i would highly recommend going to steel braided with quick-disconnect. i use macroline for my low pressure tanks, but high pressure is too much of a gamble. I have had the collet of macroline fittings blow out due to high pressure and let me tell you that was very scary and easily could have injured someone. It flew across the living room and left a good size dent in the kitchen cabinet.

I think I am just going to put my steel line back on my a5 and not take any chances.
