Does anyone use Y fittings instead of Tees? I have noticed several manufacturers selling them. Are they good or bad?

I've used about 4 Y-fittings total.

If you have to, its just as easy to use a T and a 45. The majority of the time's I've used a Y fitting is when a rookie plows a line that intersects with another line, and comes at it totally wrong.

I am trying to find out about both pvc to swing pipe y connections and poly to swing pipe y connectors. I use threaded 45 elbows for both now and I am thinking of switching. Looking for feedback. Also has anyone ever seen a combination swing and drip connection fitting?

I currently use 90 degree elbows and the ones I saw where molded in at a 30 degree angle.
