ummm you can do it yourself....but make sure its a straight cut, not at an angle or anything

Use some side cutters (wire cutters) to cut it yourself. I actually use a SHARP box knife. Makes a clean straight cut without squishing the hose any...

Dont use scissors or dikes or anything like that, it crushes the airway, use a sharp knife such as a box cutter or regular straight blade.

yea, i cut it successfully, i used these branch trimmers and it cut through it like butter, and straight. 1 more thing though, i get leaks like 50% of the time i put my co2 on... i teflon taped the threads thoroughly and thats not the prob. The leak is coming from the little slits that pop up and appear when you screw in the air/co2. Sometimes it doesnt leak, other times, it does. I can figure out the problem.

Jmotion...yes, HPA is better than anything...and macro is cheaper, and replaceable...as well as it comes in almost every color your gun can be

Don't do microline, use macroline. Microline is way to small to allow enough air through.

Advantages: easy to match your gun, easy to cut a piece and install it, less expensive, lighter.

Disadvantages: could blow (although unlikely, but does happen) when used with Co2.
