Macro line blew off asa

So I bought a 2011 kp a couple weeks ago and I used it for the first time yesterday I played about seven games no problems then the macro line blew out of the fitting on the asa and the collar part of the fitting blew off as well, I noticed when I first received the marker that it seemed like the line may have been a bit too long (not 100% sure if it was) but I notice that on the Asa the line would push the bottom side of the collar in a little bit because it would not come out of the fitting straight, has any one else run into this issue at all? Btw I was using a 13/3000 ninja tank I don't think that matters at all cause I've seen other guys on here using the same tank.

I had that problem with my Blitz on both the ASA and the regulator. I just cut my own macroline and got new fittings and everything seems to be in order so far. I think the fittings that Azodin uses may be on the lower end of the spectrum :/

Ya I just got an azodin on/off a new 90 degree fitting and a foot long length of macro line that seems to be working just fine but then the cup seal and front valve o ring started leaking, solved those issues this week, finally got it all put back together and operating properly and received a .678 lurker eigen barrel in the mail so I'm really itching to use it

I obviously cut the macro line to correct length before I installed It want to make that clear lol

I agree i sell air and hydraulic fittings for a living and didnt look until mine blew out. didnt look at how crappy they where but then again most are very bad.
A very little know fact about all the paintball fitting is 99.9 percent of the ones 90 straights and swivels are not rated at over 290psi and everyones putting 450-800 thru them all day LOL. Its not a secret just not common knowledge.

The same thing happened to me with my Blitz, after probably 20-25 games played with it. I contacted Azodin customer service, and they mailed me a new part for free; plus I got it within 5 days of the original part malfunction.
And for the record, I use compressed air through my Blitz. Not Co2.
