Microline... What?

Just wondering what microline is used for. I accidently bought some because I read quick and read it as macroline.
Thank you.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I think Microline isn't able to handle as high of pressure as macroline is.

microline should be able to work. There are cheap remote lines out there that use microline.

Mircoline is a lower pressure hose.. it goes on autocockers 3 ways and lrp's.. macro line is the line that connects your tank to the reg.. macro is much thicker and harder to bend.

Microline is mainly for pumps I think. So if your using a normal electric/mechanical I would get some macroline to be save. Microline can't handle as high of pressure.

Not true.

There was a micro line that was made for connecting the asa to the reg for any marker that used 1/8npt threads. Got phased out far due to it not being able to handle higher pressures. Believe the hose was 1/8" OD.

there is a microline out there (not sure if anyone offers it in paintball) with proper pressure ratings.

What type of microline are you referring to? Can you post a link for us so we can see what you purchased. Need to know if you're talkign about microline for remote sytsems or microline on the inside of markers or on marker parts like cocker 3ways.

That is definitely LP hosing for autocockers (3way, lpr, ram) and timmies (noid to barb).

The microline some of use are referring to looks just like macroline but is a smaller OD

.
Think of regular macro like something on an ego; uses regular high pressure out put.

I think of micro as something on a G6R; uses low pressure/slp and doesn't need as large an internal opening to allow air through.

That's just the way I think about it, not really sure if I explained it well.
