Buy some and try for yourself. If nothing else, having swing joints under each riser will prevent breakage.

Marlex is a high-density polyethylene, and it makes for threaded street elbows that seal leak-free without needing teflon tape or pipe dope. If your risers were threaded into a marlex elbow you could align them with the greatest of ease.

I used a TEE with threaded connection at each riser location. Why would nobody make swivel adapter?
Useless. Absolutely useless. Pros use marlex elbows for a reason, that reason being that they don't have to fuss with what's bothering you.

It's all a matter of adjusting the tightness of the riser, adaptor and nozzel. If you still can't get both edges to line-up you may need to go to a wider pattern nozzel and deal with a little over spray.

Adjusting spray nozzle edge on a shrub riser. How?

Is there a part like swivel shrub adapter or something to adjust spray nozzle on a shrub stick? Or how do you guys adjust these? I screwed in stick, shrub adapter and then nozzle almost never aligns correctly as far as left or right edge without under tightening it.
