He's using a Tippmann, which means he's most likely using steel braided hose. You need a wrench to get it off.

Its steel braided line.

You have to take unbolt the ASA part from the grip (two screws) and then take the hose off of it. It may be loctited, in which case you can heat it with a flame or heat gun to decompose the loctite.

I don't remember having that much of a problem with mine when I took it off, but its been a while.

I took a really stubborn ASA off a Model 98 a few days ago. Turns out some paint and moisture had gotten in the threading of the screws causing some buildup and rust.

I put a few drops of WD40 on the screws, allowed them to sit for a while, and then torqued them out with a hex key. When using the hex key, make sure to insert the small end of the key into the screw so you can use the larger end to get more leverage.

if your taking the fittings off, use a 7/16" open ended wrench, or an adjustable.

use a wrench to get it off and you can get more levereage by leaving the ASA attached to the bottom of the grip until you loosen the steel braided hose, then remove the ASA from the grip. I know you have already achieved this Im just putting that out there for others.
