I just feel that the 45* fitting allows for debris to move through easily without getting hung up. I also feel the more length of pipe coming off the leader will help if there is a back-up in the system and it will create that much more water pressure to push the blockage through.
A long sweep 90* would probably be just as sufficient though.
What cons do you see with the 45* fittings. (they are actually 22.5* fittings mostly.)
