Default mirco/macroline whats the diff?

what is the difference between microline and macroline hoses? i think one is for N2 and the other is for co2, but i'm not sure. i have a spyder rodeo and i run CO2 through it, which should i choose?

lets say i bought a one of the two hose for my gun, i installed it and it was working just fine, but then i wanted to change something, like one of the elbows. would i be able to pull out the hose and put it into a new elbow?

they both work for anything. you might need some different fittings to get them to fit on your gun. it depends on the look that you like

For co2 braided stainless steel hose is the best choice.

Microline has a very small inner and outer diameter and isn't good for an air passage from the ASA to the regulator. It's better served for use from like an LPR to a solenoid where not a lot of air or pressure is needed. In most cases, you would most need Macroline, and always for the connection from ASA to gun. (Micro = very small, Macro = large).

You can run Co2 through macroline but there have been instances when it blows - not really common, but it has happened. To run macroline, you're going to need to compression fittings, usually two 90* elbows, or one 90* elbow and a straight fitting. Microline won't fit in macroline fittings - it's too small. And yes, if you want different hose, all you would have to do is remove the hose and switch it out with the other.

That is what can happen with Macro and C02

If you can use steal braid with C02. If you want to make it easy change use a quick disconnect on it.

That's the exact picture I remembered when I posted that they have blown before. Wasn't that from someone on SOC?
