Umm, you better check the work done then. It is illegal to fit brake lines with a single flare for good reason. The single flare can split or crack (over time) and cause leaks with the obvious result. The double flare folds the tube inward kinda before the second step flares it out leaving 2 layers of metal that won't split or crack - much safer...

Clutch lines use a single flare and brakes lines use a double. As it indicates you have to use the flaring tool twice (with the correct shapes) to get for end formed correctly. Once you have the tool the line is cheap.
i was just googling what was being discussed here as my lines are new and i dont know if they are single or double flare, so upon disaassembly i will check and these pics are good explanations .. thanks hybrid
