Sta-Lok and Norsman terminals by their construction will allow for more trapped water. Do you really want that maintenance item?
I strongly disagree. A properly installed and mechanical fitting should have sealant anywhere there isn't steel and should allow less trapped water than a swaged fitting. You also can inspect the inside of a mechanical fitting for corrosion. With a swaged fitting, you'll find out about the corrosion when the rig comes down.
