Rainbird Maxi-paw to Hunter swing joint help

Hey so i'm new to irrigation trying to do it myself.

WE have a 25 year old system, with maxi paw rotors. After digging one up, I realized that it was connected on the side and not the bottom. I believe that the side is a 1/2 fitting and I need a 3/4 fitting for the new hunter ultra heads that I have. Also the hunter heads are installed from the bottom and not the side. So my question is what swing joint do I need there are a bunch of options and I'm not sure which one i exactly need.
Here is the link to what I could find: http://www.sprinklerwarehouse.com/Swing-Joints-s/6837.htm

IF you could point me in a better direction and give me any advice it would be awesome!.

Thanks
V.

I fixed your link.

I believe Hunter has a 1/2" x 3/4" x 6 inches long. I don't see that listed on their site so buy them at an irrigation supply store.
Ewing or John Deere Irrigation or Hydroscape.

Just make sure the 6" length is long enough. If not then you could 12" length. Swing Joint.

You could buy the 1/2 x 1/2 inch and use a 3/4" x 1/2" bushing on each one. That's how I do it. Bushing
