Corrugated or pvc pipe for catch basin?

I will be installing an NDS 6 inch catch basin near my patio and not sure which pipe (corrugated vs pvc) would be best. Smooth wall pipe requires less slope and due to it's stiffness is not as impacted by a less than perfect slope. Suggestions?

Smooth bore would probably better serve your purpose.

+1 on Chandler's comment.

You will get a smoother, more uniform slope with less chance of "bellies" with pvc. Your catch basin will pick up all kinds of debris that will tend to settle instead of being flushed through.
