Are we talking about true RT fittings that are gasketed or the common compression fitting that we used to call RT?
Not 100% positive, but I think regular compression couplings/connectors stopped being code compliant for outdoor use a few code cycles back. Most people now use the actual rain tight stuff with the blue or yellow gaskets.

Another thing that was totally code compliant since the dawn of time but for some reason the clowns that make the code books decided they weren’t acceptable anymore.

I've never seen (in person) or touched one of the "new" RT fittings, they still have that split ring in them? Where does the gasket/o'ring (what ever makes it RT) go in the fitting?
There’s a gasket on the inside. Kinda like a sealtight connector, except it fits over pipe.

Nothing really to it. Except that a 1/2” coupling is like $8 or something.

If you use the tubing cutter and cut only partway through the wall and snap the tubing off at the score line, it leaves a slightly bigger smoother radius on the cut ends with minimal effort. The Rigid cutter works onEMT conduit from 1/2 to 2”
Your serious? How much pipe are you running a day like that??????

A sawzall and 4 twists with a reamer is 1000x faster
