I like my braided hoses at the caliper interface, helps to
provide a heat break and you get a sparkly look. :-)
From experiments on the old pipes when they were changed, it
is usually some damage from abrasion that leads to failure.
Should have done them at the pedal end as well, that's an
upgrade for the future.

Did Brad update the tubing or just replace what is there?
Hey Jay, Jerry and Mike,
You can add Brad Olsen (Tom
Moore’s Q originally)to that list. NF tubing failed
in the wheel pant near the disc. He locked up the
other brake and did a 360. No damage. Quick repair
and he was flying again.

Hi Mike and Rich,
We just discussed two cases
of the nylaflow tubing failing. One was last week,
Ray McCrea’s long EZ and the other was Jim Patillo’s
Q200 a few years ago.

It doesn't sound like
there have been any nylaflow tubing breaks.
I'm still running my 35
year old stuff with 1400 hours on it with no
issues. I took a piece of the leftover 35 year
old stuff and tried to break it with no luck, it
seemed pretty good. I do a brake pressure test
each time before landing so if it fails in
flight I'll know that I'm landing with no brakes
and can plan for that.

So where have the pipe ruptures been just
Are they mainly are the caliper end due to
