60 Degree Bend

Hi, newbie here. I’ve been reading what I can about designing my sprinkler system, and I hear that a triangular pattern is preferred for good coverage. That works for me, but when it comes to planning the pipe layout I’m a bit baffled. There are a couple spots where it makes the most sense to follow the 60 degree bend of one corner of a triangle to supply the next head. However, I’m not aware of a 60 degree elbow for 1” or 3/4” PVC. Should I be attempting to follow the 60 bend in my plan, and if so what kind of part should I use?

change your plan - stick to conventional tees and ells
