Ego 11 leaking through marco line

My ego 11 leaks every time it is aired up. Coming out of where my macro line goes in. But if I hit the macro line it will stop leaking. But I'm concerned it will get worse. I've changed the macro line umpteen times. Any ideas

Its typical with macro, as long as you wiggle it a little and it stops your fine. I think almost every gun I have used macro with has done that just about.

I know you said you change the macro line but make sure you have a straight cut. When i got my 11 i change the macro line and the cut was kinda angled and it leaked until i touched it. I made the cut straight and i got 50k on it and no leak since. Good luck bro

I used a new razor blade and it cuts through it like butter. You can try that if you need too

One trick I know is to take the macroline out, get a little saliva on it (a little weird, I know) and put it back. Works like a charm.

Yeah, I've had a Geo 2 and Ego 10 both have this. Just wiggled the fitting till it stopped and that was that. Bumping it and playing wouldn't cause it to leak again, so its nothin to sweat

If you remove the hose, put some grease aroung the end of the hose, and then slide it back in again making sure it clicks ALL the way back into the fitting, that should do it.

Mine does the same thing, It wont get worse, its just typical macro line behavior. I used to use a nice cigar cutter for my macro line cuts and it worked great for me. A good one though.

I tried wiggling The macro line while it was aired up AND without. But the air keeps on leaking bad from the ASA end of the macro line. Any advice guys?

I tried turning the swivel. Still leaked, I also tried cleaning, still leaking. But it was taking in air perfectly yesterday. I just recently removed the macro for maintenance today. When i put the macro back in that's when it started leaking, I'm also sure it's in correctly as well, and the cuts on the macro are clean straight. Also when I tried airing up the gun with a pure energy tank the ASA wouldn't pop back to air the gun up, but when I put my ninja tank on, there's no struggle on popping.

are you 100% sure it is coming from the gap of the macro line and the fitting, and not from where the fitting is screwed in? The reason i say this is because there is a little oring that goes out on my geo on that fitting quite often. Also make sure you are getting quality macro line, i have seen some that will not seal correctly. but as everyone else is saying you need to make sure the cut on the line is straight and make sure the macro is secure.

there is a number 010 nbr 70 oring inside the macroline fitting, pull the hose and look inside, it could be damaged. swap that for a new oring then do what Jack mentioned above, put a little smear of grease around the hose before you put it back in.

if you have swapped the macro line for a different brand then also check that you have the right size. some macro line is metric and will not fit correctly.

Make sure your fittings are screwed In to.i had the same problem all I had to do was take the macro line off and screw it in a few turns and then it worked like a charm.
