I have a 4 keg tapper running with B3 line for both beer and CO2.

The lines are "stiff" when cold, but not so much so they can not be moved.

Is the MM line really that much better I should buy all new line? I am moving the taps so that would be the time to replace the line if I am ever going to. The beer line is 3/16" and the CO2 is 5/8".



What are your thoughts??

Anyone tried both and find one better than the other?? Not specifically removing the lines, but general use.

I use the MM beer line, only because they have a warehouse right down the street, so I can get it an increadible price.

I cant speak for the other beer lines, but my MM beer lines do get cold and a little stiff, but they are not unmanagable.

Not be a "sell" post but...
You may want to look at our "SuperFlex" hose.
It is thickwall, yet stays VERY pliable at all temperatures.
