I've heard a lot of people talk about macro and micro line blowing up, but I've never had it happen to me and I've never seen it happen to anyone.
Most preset N2 tanks are set at 850psi, or there abouts.
Usually, the leaks just mean you haven't pushed it in all the way. The best way to prevent this is to just pull on the lines before you gas it up just to make sure they are secure.
I have personally seen both Macro and Micro line burst right before my eyes. The line was extremely cold/freezing because of co2 on a cold day. I suppose it just GAVE in and BAM! One big leak I must tell you. It was actually pretty cool watching all of the air go around. The kid was damn near crying though, lol.
You are correct about the 850 psi preset tanks. But, just to elaborate, that is for high pressure presets. They can go lower. I think that PaintballGear.com has LP 450 PSI one's or something around that.
