I've seen the threaded CL version and people stretching silicone tubing over it with success (or even filing down the threads and doing this). BrewHardware has a pretty nice fix for this:
(checkout The Big-C)

Thanks again for all the great info, hopefully others find this useful as well.

If you don't mind high temperature plastic the CPC disconnects do the job and can be attached or unattached with one hand.

I use the QD's shown in the top picture, and not ones with full 1/2" bore (they're actually smaller). I prefer them to camlocks as they're really easy to connect/disconnect with one hand. (Just make sure to put the female QD's on the hoses and not on the equipment).

I've never had any issues with flow rates at all. I think the whole flow rate concern is overblown.
