well i got drop forward/ on off from my nerve and threw it on my cocker along with the macro and the fittings.

but the macro is too short and i dont want to buy new fittings so i was asking if all macro was the same size as this macro.

but ehh i might as well bite the bullet and get new fittings and macro.

alright let me try to straighten out this situation. lol

I took the drop forward/on off from my nerve which used 1/8th inch wide macro.

I put the drop forward/on off onto my cocker but the macro is too short in length to reach.

the end

Those are macro fittings on that 'Cocker.... LOL! All macroline is macroline, and is 1/4" thick, and hooks into 1/8" NPT threaded fittings. Microline is skinny, almost looks like autococker hosing, and it hooks into a 1/8" NPT threaded fitting as well, but is obviously smaller. Buy all Macroline from HobbyHorse, he stocks ParFlex, which is the best macroline in the industry in all my experience.
