If new units came with a flare connection, I'd use it.....
It's pretty much that simple.
If its a copper socket, I'm gonna jab a copper pipe in it and braze it, not braze in a flare adapter.
not much can be added

I love my job, but paydays Thursday
My 2 cents
Its so odd to see this thread today cuz I just finished installing a walk-in cooler and freezer system both new for a local meat processor. As I was kneeling in the wind, Brazing my 7/8" acr copper suction lines to the stainless steel accumulator head at the condensor, I remember thinking to my self as I was waiting for my silflo dissimalar paste to open up the pours and suck in my 15% silflo while I was blocking the wind...I remember thinkin "I wish this suction line had a flare like my 3/8 liquid line does. Guess thier has to be a manufactures reason for it...HMM"
