ive dealt with hydraulics for years now and the only way a crimp leaks or fails if its the wrong combo of crimp and hose or if its not crimped compleetly to spec, and the spec should always be checked when done.
The only issue i have and why i havent made my own is because the aeroquip hoses we use at work isnt rated for engine temperatures. Being close to the turbo and underhood means the outer rubbber casing will crack and split over time which isnt good.
In my opinion, use a hard line.
And JIC is the cats meow, easily rotated and very easily reused again and again.
