Default rotary barbs

hi, I use for the first time rotary 90' barb on my WC, and I don't feel secure, enough to want to remove them, I see a potentiel risk of leak there.. I'm too much worry about it.

The only risk of leaking for rotaries is when you pull them hard sideways. Then they may leak... Other then that I have yet to see any problems with rotaries in any of my builds. I'd say : relax.

While I normally agree with Daz, I've had issues with some BP rotaries. They had a few bad batches. But if they don't leak right away, they are good.

I've had one leaky rotary because of the Oring in the rotary part was somehow sliced open

When I had a loop I had many, no issues. The only thing to ever leak that was rotary was a male-male fitting and it was a slow leak. The O-ring in it was messed up, but generally if it comes in a working condition, it won't have any issues.

this is the one I worry about, it's only 2 " long and no chance of side movement, and with the shim I install betwen the barb and the block , they are perfectly align , changing it with 2 strait barb will means a uggly short loop, hard to not bent too, but still I see a potential of problem here.

With no chance of side movement, you won't have an issue. Like I said before, if the rotaries leak, they do it immediately, and it will show up during your leak testing.
