I went from camlock to tc about a year ago. Camlock is easier to do house changes, but tri clamp let's me disassemble easily. Also,I get to tinker with things. Because everything fits with everything, it is like using big shiny legos.

Camlocks for the hot side, triclamps for the cold.

I am all triclamp, or three hand clamp as I like to say, and it rocks. The only place I'm not triclamp is the inlet to my center inlet chugger pumps. Those are npt and hose barbs. I love triclamp but the reality is that my 30 gallon stout kettles came with a ton of triclamp stuff so it was nice. I bought a few extra hose barbs, gaskets and clamps to finish it all and have a few extras. Outside of the kettles I've spent about $100 on tc stuff. Not bad.

Anybody want to post a few pics or a video showing how easy or difficult the connections are to make with the two different options?

I really can't see using triclovers on hoses. Plus it's not very easy to rotate a triclover when needed if it's got pressure on it. With camlocks you just turn them.
