There are quite a few points were hysteresis rears its ugly head. The rubber lines are one, calipers flex, caliper mounts flex, pedal arms flex, bulkheads flex etc.

Unless you are on the ragged edge of the system fuctionality, there won't be much, if any, change in the feel from upgrading only a single component such as the brake lines.

That said I use the ss lines, but they are frequently inspected.

The ss is only a sheath protecting the rigid but mechanically vulnerable ptfe inner fluid pipe.

Working line pressure is highly dependant on temp
