Does anyone know if they sell macro line at non paintball stores, such as hardware stores? I was thinking of going in and asking but I wasn't sure how high of a pressure the line is supposed to hold, does anyone know? Also, would they sell the elbows for the line anywhere else too?

I'm not sure, why don't you just go to a paintball store though.

As far as PSI, the hose needs to be rated to at least 900.

I was hoping to buy a fairly long piece of the macro line because I want to have extra and I figured it'd probably be cheaper at a hardware store.

you probably won't find it at a regular hardware store. You're looking for 1/4" OD and ~1/8" ID hose. I think I got the measurements right. The fittings are called compression fittings. You might want to try a hydraulics shop or store. But they probably won't recomend the the plastic hose (macroline) for the pressure us paintballers use. Depends on where you're going to be placing the hose and what pressure you're gonna be exposing it to.

Yochi.

I have seen it in meter lengths. Plus you got to think, what ever machine that makes this stuff doesn't just make it in one foot lengths. They more than likely make it by the roll and then some other machine cuts it to length.

Thanks for the help guys

it sounds like it'd be easier to just buy it from a paintballs store like one of you suggested.
