I use field replaceable ends for pressures up to around 2000 psi. Anything higher, go to crimped ends. I also don't use them for situations where pulsing is used. Apache fittings are the ones available from Northern Tool. I have not had any problems reusing them. It takes a couple tries to get the swivel at exactly the optimal point where it will start to thread on. Use hydraulic oil when screwing together, it makes it a lot easier.
