There is a lil o ring on the back side of those might need a little tlc/inspection. They are removable using an Allen key

Cut a new piece of macro line. Make sure its cut nice and clean. It's worth a shot...

This is normal with all PE markers, with the exception of the Ego LV1. you gas it up and wiggle the 45Degree fitting and the leak will stop. My Geo3 does the same thing. even my wifes old Ego11 does it too. Just wiggle the swivel if it leaks when you first air up the marker. The macro line will seat and the leak will go away.

Well that works is thanks but is there anyway to fix it so it doesn't do that anymore?

Been doing the twist since about.... well... 08? Its just the swivel and macro sitting in place properly. Happens to every Planet gun i've ever had because it has the swivel.

for me it only did that with my 2.1 when the macro got mud around the fitting. Once i cleaned it out though, the leak went away. GL

1) Get pliers and pull off the collar of the macrofitting
2) Take a pick and pull out that oring inside your macrofitting
3) Replace it with an 010
4) Replace collar by just pushing it back in

I'm not a great tech in any way but I replaced my fittings and macro line and the leak stopped for me.

I'll try this and see what results I get but I just assumed it was a PE trademark.. Seriously, no joke...

Several guys at the field, ego 11's do this.

My personal experience my ego 11 did this brand new out of the box, 2.1 did that, and both geo 3's did it.

Just figured it was normal, as it goes away after about 15 seconds.

I've had issues with Planet Eclipse supplied macroline leaking on at least 2 of my guns straight out of the box. Bought some macroline from Macroline Guy. Fixed the issue. I think the supplied macroline isn't very flexible. That's just my experience. Macroline is expensive and it's worth a try.
