How would you have done it? Back to back emt connectors? That would look like sh!t. A threaded nipple is the right choice for this application.
I agree, I would have probably used hard pipe all the way. I like your solution better.

Did you install the last one?
Of course it vibrated off the wall.
Just like that one will.
You have zero isolation there. No springs, no flex.
Does that job have specs?
I don't think I have read one that doesn't require springs and flex

why did you switch to rigid?
Because I can cut and thread rigid into any length I want and two EMT fittings that are 5" away from each other looks like slop
