funny pipe

I'm installing a system with 1" poly, I 20 Hunter rotors and would like to use Funny Pipe. I'm concerned about using 1/2" funny pipe and barb fittings connecting to a 3/4" rotor fitting will be too flow restricting. Are there other alternatives that would be less flow restrictive? 3/4" Funny pipe?

I haven seen any 3/4" funny pipe, and Ive been all over the web. They do make 3/4 swing pipe but I havent read from here any real strong reason to use it over funny pipe. As far as restriction Id think use should be more concerned about having proper sized pipe from meter and the laterals. Get the correct sizes for those, the 12"- 18" shouldnt matter. I gave shasta a link about risers and funny pipe check it out, matter of fact read through the whole tutorial great info there.
