I would think that would depend on your ability to do one or the other better. Good welding is the trick, not which one you should use. That's my opinion for whatever its worth

If you now how to weld conduit correctly it works great and won't crack on you. Welding conduit is faster and a lot easier than brazing when you are by yourself. Brazing works great and has a lot more room for error. Brass is definitely better when it comes to flexibility but again if you weld it correct you are go also. It all depends on what you are more comfortable with.
