Which is the best connection for spool / jumper connection between clamp and collet connector.

(OP)
Good day all,

I'm trying to find following information about hub clamp and collet connector (size between 6" and 12")for deepwater oil field application:

- Have clamp and collet connector a higher bending capacity that the spool or pup piece they are welded to ?
- Which connector has the best capacity in terms of loads capacity ?
- Which connector has the best capacity in terms of misalignment capacity ?
- Can have a collet or clamp connector a higher bending moment capacity that an API 6A type BX flange ?
- What are the main advantages of a clamp connection over a collet connection and vice versa ?

Thanks a lot for your help.
