I just got my etek 4 (3 weeks ago) it started to leak after the second use... Regulator( through the vent hole) i changed the o rings. It seemed to fix the problem but i haven't shot more then 100 balls through it. Now it leaks through the marco line ( where te macro line meets the reg.) should i just put some lube on the end o it and stick it up the female port. Please help. Thanks just.. Jw if the eteks leak alot? Ot i just got a bad batch.

It does it for a while, but it will evenly come back. Is there no permanent fix too it?

Btw, to answer your question OP, no. Eteks are literally the face of reliability (after tippy 98 obviously)

You can try to recut the macroline, just take any shark means of cutting and slice it as straight as possible. If that doesn't work just get a new macro line, they are inexpensive tbh.

Just like Jawz said, I would try and re-cut the macro line. all you would need to do is slice a SLIVER off so the hose has a clean straight cut. the reason why it would be leaking is because the cut has a slight angle. I like to use a fresh razor for this.
