yeah, i had a problem w/ one leaking the other day. if you had a stethascope, you could listen to confirm if its leaking inside the braided part, or at the weld itself.

It always seems to me that 1/10 of those damn flex joints leak. Over time u will see black carbon build up where it is leaking. If its real quite, dont worry about it.
